Reviews from 2020

Linda – A lovely place to relax
“I joined three other friends for our annual girls’ weekend get together at Grandview for a long weekend catch up. We stayed in the Penthouse apartment and it was great. Lovely space, very light & airy, 2 large bedrooms and a smaller twin room. Huge outdoor area. Everything well maintained and clean. I don’t usually swim in the pool but three of us jumped in to cool off and it was a great space. The manager was wonderful to deal with too.”

“This is the second time we have stayed here and once again the accommodation was excellent. Why stay in a motel room when you can have an apartment with superb views and the convenience of having your own facilities. With secure parking, proximity to the beach and plenty of space, Grandview Apartments = relaxation, whatever your reason for visiting Ballina.”

Christopher – The worst part about our stay was we had to leave.
“The apartment (701 ocean tower) myself and my family stayed in was breathtaking from the moment we walked in. Ocean views as far as the eye could see then found not one, three Balconies with views from the ocean right around the lighthouse, straight up the Richmond River overlooking East Ballina. Oh yeah and the spacious three bedroom apartment was. This is definitely the reason why our family chooses Grandview Apartments every time we travel to Ballina.”
