We booked in for two nights and liked it so much we stayed for an extra night due to the quality of the motel. It is done in an Indonesian theme and was well equipped. Microwave, kettle, mini-fridge, french press coffee, toaster and even wine glasses. The owners were very accommodating and very pleasant to deal with. There was a...

Once again a lovely stay at this little gem situated at one of Australia's most beautiful beaches, which was just over a quiet road and through the dunes. A lovely down to earth motel with only a few rooms, nicely done up in a way inspired by Balinese style, perfect for a quiet break. Pool set among beautiful plants and...

Small room and no A/C. Staff were very friendly. Good location, parking available. Close to excellent supermarket, bakery, hotel plus bus stop and beach. Expensive, though that seems the going rate around Byron Bay.

Thanks for your comments about your stay with us in one of the smaller economy rooms. as mentioned they are advertised as a small room, with ensuite and own courtyard. these rooms have a ceiling fan and no air-con but with screened security door and louver windows which allows for continued airflow. the weekends are always busy and more expensive...

I would rate the accomodation two & half star probably built in the 60's/70's budget Motel except it did have a good king bed & just across the road through the bush track to the beach Price is not commensurate with the standard of the room

We thank you for writing your review. We are a small motel and we are rated 3.5 stars through the Association. We work hard to maintain this ranking. Having the beautiful Tallow Beach across the road is a bonus for our guests - a walk, a swim to relax, lounge around the pool area, a wander through our garden -...

Great location opposite the beach and out of the hurly burly of main part of Byron Bay, but only a 5 minute drive into main beach. Has inground pool. Clean and well appointed. Air conditioning. Screened louvred windows. Little kitchenette with microwave,toaster, kettle. Would recommend for an old fashioned motel experience. Friendly staff.

Where possible we will allocate studio rooms with a kitchenette and A/C however all rooms have T/C making facilities, microwave, ceiling fans etc. The screened louvred windows provide a nice flow of air.

Best place in all of New South Wales. The beach is just across the street through a clearing in the woods. Totally undeveloped, perfectly quiet and beautiful. Our room had thatched wallpaper and a sunny sitting room that looked out onto a garden of elephants ears and all sorts of tropical greenery. The lady who runs the place came around...

We stayed only one night here's do wished we could've stayed more. The motel is room was quirky, but very clean and comfortable. Right across the road to the beach, close to shops and cafes, approx 10mins from the Hub of Byron itself. The motel provides itself on being quiet, lovely little spot.

no stress booking. rooms looked like the photos. welcomed by a friendly rosemary for our stay. tasteful, peaceful. clean. close to beautiful tallow beach. all round balm for the soul. only bummer is they allow smokers to indulge too close to doorways and the smell wafts in. otherwise deeee-lightfull !

Glad to know that the photos were ok. thanks for your kind comments. We do try to encourage smokers not to smoke outside their door - there is plenty of room in the garden for them to chill out and relax. thanks for the reminder.
