Environmental Awareness

New Zealand is gifted with a stunning and diverse natural landscape, which is a key motivator for people wanting to come here.

We all want to keep it that way (or make it even better), not just for today or tomorrow, but for the next generation of New Zealanders and future visitors to our country.

We have made a commitment to protect and preserve the environment we work and live in.

 Our Qualmark® Silver Enviro rating shows you, the traveller, that the Ballina Motel "achieves high levels of environmental and social responsibility".

Sustainability and a greener vision is a strong focus for the Ballina Motel.
