The Arabella - North Coast Boutique Motel
A short 30-minute drive south of Byron Bay, we had booked into the Arabella Hotel. Expecting it to be a very basic roadside motel we were incredibly surprised about the quality and the relaxation that this lovely hotel offered.
Only about 35 minutes drive south of Byron Bay, we were here around 2 pm and spent a leisurely afternoon reading and relaxing by the pool before walking to dinner at the tavern next door.
The next morning, we were on the road but again as we were not in a huge hurry we were able to drive the 2 km into Alstonville and enjoy the very quaint village feel of the town, enjoying the cafes and the local little shops before continuing on to the Pacific Highway and heading back to Sydney.
It was a shame we only had the one evening as it was so peaceful and relaxing we would have liked to stay much longer.
There are direct flights into Ballina from most locations around Australia and an Uber or a car hire will bring you here quite easily.
This may have just become one of my favourite holiday spots.
