Property advertised with a restaurant... it’s only a cafe for breakfast, you do get a discount card to go to the local club down the road but after travelling for 12 hours with 2 kids not really helpful! Bathroom very out dated - toilet seat that old and disgusting it looked unclean!! Never seen so many mozzies in one place! Including the rooms and hallways.. On the positive side the man who served us was extremely helpful and the undercover parking a bonus

Thank you for your feedback and for choosing to stay again at Ballina Homestead Motel, we appreciate it. Unfortunately there are limited opportunities to advertise the cafe in more detail on Wotif.com due, please refer to our own website for further details. We are working on updating the bathrooms in the Standard Family rooms as part of our refurbishment program. Due to recent rain and after a very long period of very dry time mozzies are plentiful and unfortunately beyond our control.

The room was small but very well set up. Clean, everything I needed for a comfortable night. Under cover car parking was excellent. Staff were pleasant.
