You can't dislike Bruce he's a very welcoming pleasant guy which is why I don't like saying this. Apart from the incredible view , this place is very old & tired. It's not the cleanest either probably difficult to do because of its age. However Bruce if you let me know when you've refurbed I'll be back :)

You can't beat the view here. It overlooks North Creek and has views of Shaw's Bay. Nearby is the Shaw's Hotel and a small take away shop. Our kitchen looked out towards the creek which was forever changing. The bird life was interesting as well. We were visited daily by the resident frilly lizard. He's a big boy! Both the...

I'm a photographer and the sunset there was fascinating . The hotel room was clean and had essential facilities. It is absolutely reasonable price for the accomodation. The location is just fine and near for city centre and the beach . What else one can want for good weekend?

Accommodation is self-contained and comfortable but a bit tired. Reasonably close to the town centre, 30 minute walk to Ballina town centre. Car parking inadequate during peak season. Manager was very helpfull. Overall, thought a little overpriced for its age.

I agree it is a bit old and tired, but value for money is great, we had a fully self contained apartment. We had a hire car, so found no problem with the location. A beautiful poinciana tree and eastern water dragons running around the lawn. Bruce cheerful and helpful.

Although this hotel has great views and is high up on the hill it is tired and old. Did not think it was good value for money although bed and room was comfortable. We had the studio room which was on the top floor up a rickety old staircase outside. Do not attempt this if you have any health issues.Would...

Thank you for your review. Our building is 2 stories high and yes, the Studio apartment is on the top floor, which gives a great view toward the ocean. When people phone direct to book, we do ask if a staircase would provide a problem for some. Unfortunately we are unable to relay this same information when booked through some...

I would not recommend anyone to go to this place. Not anyone. Ever. The staff/hosts take their private frustrations out on you. They are also really rude, I don't think they know what customer service is. If you can go anywhere else - I strongly recommend you do so.

Sorry to read your review, although I do question how you can not recommend us to future customers, when you didn’t stay here? I apologise if you feel we came across as rude. As you called on the day of your booking to cancel your booking, we were trying to convey our cancellation policy. We feel we tried to be...

I recently stayed here in the peak period January and cricket carnival time, and made the mistake of thinking that over $2000.00 for a week would give me a washing machine, or a dishwasher or an apartment with a reasonably modern kitchen. Wrong!! Combined with the indignity of charging $4.00 a wash in the communal laundry (think of brown, smelly...

Thank you for taking the time to review our accommodation. At Leisure Lee we strive to provide a positive holiday experience and certainly our location and magnificent water views assist us in doing just that. Peak period accommodation at Christmas and Easter is the only time higher rates apply. Throughout the year it is off peak rates. In order for...

I stayed here for one night with my husband and toddler. Reading reviews and seeing it was rated 4 star, and along with Internet photos I booked this apartment, even though it was expensive. When we got there, our apartment was at the top of a very narrow outdoor spiral staircase, very scary with luggage and a toddler. The apartment...

Pauline F, Manager at Ballina Leisure Lee Holiday Apartments, responded to this review

Gone are the days when folks ring and make a booking which gives the opportunity to cater for individual needs. With the age of internet bookings, whilst comprehensive information is available on booking agent’s websites, minimal information is given on persons staying. Had we have known that a toddler would be staying we would have realised that the spiral staircase...

Had to sweep bathroom and vacuum unit myself upon arrival as there was hair and dust scattered over bathroom floors and crumbs. Apartment offers a great view but owners could do a better job of presentation to maximize guests experience. Service from Sharon on front desk is also disappointing, not sure they value clientele.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Apartment views are staggering from both the front and back. Situated on a high point in East Ballina catching every summer breeze, yet is warmed by the sea in winter. The water and tidal sand flats, below Leisure Lee are a playground for adults and children, ideal for swimming, yabbying, fishing, wind surfing, water skiing and kite flying. Opposite is North Wall, a wonderful cycle/walkway which takes you to Lighthouse Beach, where you can surf or watch the whales and dolphins at play. How about dining across the road at the Shaws Bay Hotel with waterfront dining. A leisurely 20 min stroll will get you to the centre of Ballina. Ballina has many activities to be enjoyed such as golf, bowls, tennis, ten pin bowling, and sailing. From your apartment at Leisure Lee watch the fishing fleet go out. Cruise the Richmond River, spot a migrating whale or sit back and tantalise your taste buds with local cuisine at the many restaurants and local cafes. Go exploring the mountains, soft green hills, volcanic parks and rainforests around the Ballina and Lismore Hinterland. When day is done, light the barbie, sip on a champagne, relax and absorb the truly magical sunsets from your own apartment at Leisure Lee. You won't regret making Leisure Lee your holiday homebase, whether it's for work or play! ... more   less
