What Our Guests Say…

“Checked in with the welcoming and polite man at reception, and then sent off to our fantastic newly renovated room including microwave and toaster. Just had a short overnight stay en-route to Brisbane, and the Almare was very comforting and homey.”


“An excellent, budget-friendly stopover in Ballina. Lovely modern rooms which were tastefully decorated (looks like the interior has been renovated recently) – definitely nicer than many hotels we have stayed in. Clean, spacious and equipped with everything you need for a night or two. The reception staff were very helpful with organising late check-in for us.”


“Excellent value for money and surprisingly quiet considering it was a bustling business with folk coming and going all the time. The accommodation was perfect, providing everything that one could need. Little bottle of milk on arrival was thoughtful and much appreciated, as was the shampoo and conditioner (some establishments do not provide these!). I enjoyed being in a rear unit of the complex… terrific…”


“Check-in was fast and simple. Our host met with us and gave us fresh milk for coffee, then met our dog and welcomed him and all of us to the Motel. We would definitely recommend the Motel to others and will return there ourselves. Great experience!”


“We like the corner room, it’s quiet and comfortable bed. We’ve stayed there before & will stay there again. The new owners are lovely & helpful. It’s not far to the shopping center in Ballina either Plus an added bonus is they are fully pet friendly – you can have your dog in the room with you! So will definitely use them if ever travelling with our fur babies.”
