This really was a pleasant find in our travels through the area. Very well laid out one bedroom - a little small but more than adequate. Modest kitchenette which can handle your meal requirements though it is located reasonably close to a number of decent restaurants, pubs and shopping. Owners are very friendly and accomodating, quick to help with any...

Fantastic service, clean and tidy room. The Host went above and beyond our expectations providing old-school "service", very friendly. Car park is very small and tight though. Highly recommend this place, we'll be back to stay.

I'm not sure I've come across such a helpful owner before. He was friendly and took the time to explain how everything worked in the room. The room was nice and clean and had everything i could need for a good nights sleep.

Very smartly turned out quiet motel on a busy road. The units further away from the road are quieter still. The management team have read the book on what punters want and they aim to please, nothing is too much trouble. It was a pleasure to stay at Ballinor. Good sized rooms comfortable beds, squeaky clean. PDG
