17/01/2017 Elly H,

For what it is, it's a nice little area and motor inn. The service was prompt and informative. The only let down is the free wi-fi which you had to re-sign back into every 15 minutes or so. But it's f... more

Owner Response
Dianne W, Owner at BEST WESTERN Ballina Island Motor Inn, responded to this review
Evening Kas, I am sorry your stay was not up to your expectations. You are right we did not offer room service breakfasts while the cricket team was with us due to kitchen staffing logistics and public holidays, but we did offer all guests the opportunity to come to the restaurant and either order from the a la carte menu or partake in the buffet that the cricket team were enjoying. We are also very firm believers in all customers being equal and give all customers the same service whether they stay in our economy or executive rooms, whether they choose to book directly through us or through a third party that charges us 15%, whether they stay one night or many. Regarding the soap scum, I have had our cleaning supplier look at our shower glass and unfortunately have been told that the scum is actually not due to soap but due to many years of using harsh chemicals. We hope this year to start upgrading some of the bathrooms, with 40 rooms it will not happen overnight but we will do what our budget will allow. We encourage everyone to come back and see the changes as we try and achieve our vision, the journey is a slow one but an enjoyable one as this is a very beautiful part of the world
