Great location, able to walk to the beach, lighthouse and shops. Added bonus of muffins and coffee in the morning which was a great extra touch. Large comfortable rooms. Very nice stay would definitely go back.

We had a great time at Waves. The room was clean, spacious and well-appointed. Location is fantastic and staff were friendly. It's only about 70m from the main beach, and well within walking distance to lighthouse and everything in Byron Bay. We'll be back!

Perfect location across from beach and town, restaurants and stores are right around the corner. Size was good for a family, but the sofa sleeper is not comfortable. However I would still choose this property again.

The room was very large, and has a balcony and terrace area with bbq and outdoor eating. Super close to the beach and shops, probably a 2 minute walk...

Have just checked out of this simple yet very appealing hotel. Located only 50m from the beach, this accomodation is somewhere you should definitely consider. The rooms are simple and spacious. The staff are very friendly and they always keep the room & common areas clean. Walking distance to the beach, and all shops in the main shopping district. I'd...

Situated in a very handy spot in Byron. The room was comfortable, quiet and a nice touch was the coffee and muffins available complementary to the guests. The staff were also very friendly and accommodating.

Location great but staff unfriendly and unhelpful Asked for 2 more towels for 4 people was like asking for gold and towels never appeared. Muffins and juice in the morning was good but there would be better places to stay.

We had a great stay and would be great to go again. A little hard rating. Fire alarm went off early in am and no apology. The staff were very easy to deal with and great parking. Location was the best as close to everything and quiet rooms
