Nothing special

Owner Response
Dianne W, Owner at BEST WESTERN Ballina Island Motor Inn, responded to this review
I am glad you enjoyed your stay enough to come again, hopefully it won't be a long weekend so you can try our Restaurant Spring Menu. Unfortunately our restaurant is not open on Sunday's or public holidays, but I am sure the local Tavern catered for you well. Also when you stay next just give us a call before you arrive and let us know what crockery you would like us to place in your room. We do not leave crockery and cutlery in the rooms but provide them on request. Better still book with us and let us know at the time of booking.
