I stayed in Byron for only one night but wish it was longer. The motel room was clean and offered a fantastic central location. Room rates were a little on the high side I thought but it's a premium holiday destination and you will pay extra to be central.

It has the potential to be such a great little hotel, but it's just not. The rooms look to not been touched since the 80s and felt dirty. With two young kids I thought I was in a nightmare when all the partiers returned to their rooms between 12-2am. The hallways echo and the walls are paper thin so I...

We had a good stay at this friendly motel in Byron Bay. The location is just superb - very close to beach and main street but enough away that it's quiet. The rooms are spacious and we loved our big balcony. I especially love the fact that we had a washing machine and dryer. I give it only three because...

I booked on line & stressed ground floor as I had recently broken my foot. Arrived to book in & told no ground floor rooms. The "manager" said she hadn't even looked at my booking. Nice ! I'm travelling for work so too tied to search for other accommodation so I stay. Later while I'm in my room the "manager"...

If you are one of snow whites little dwarf friends... you may find the bed suitable!! But I am 6'1 and found the bed most uncomfortable. Convenient to central Byron Bay, but for an extra $50, you can stay in some of the best accommodation the bay has to offer. My room was at the top of the staircase, noisy,...

Just a 2 minute walk from the heart of town. Felt safe and everything was secure. Private parking. Friendly and helpful staff. The complex was neat and tidy. The rooms were great. Clean and had all the necessary essentials for a budget stay. The room was very quiet from traffic outside as we never heard a car until we opened...

Very central, room was big clean and there was kitchen and laundry, the balcony was large, beds comfy, and very good value for the usual expensive Byron bay. I would definitely recommend this motel for anyone wanting clean and friendly budget accomodation

This centrally located motel was chosen as it was economical. It is within walking distance to everything (beach, restaurants and shops). We had a lovely and informative welcome. The room was tidy but is in need of a good clean. Probably due to a long summer. There was mould in the shower recess and lots of mould on the curtains....
