my son, his wife and two young children stayed for 4 days in january 2021. they had stayed the previous year at the same time for their beach holiday. i live locally and spent a lot of time with the kids and they again said it was the perfect place to stay - across the road from the beach, large rooms, beautifully clean and airconditioned, and the again hosts couldn't be more helpful and friendly. they'll be back again next year. sally warriner.

Walking by we noticed they had vacancies! We checked in at reception to book a room for Friday & Saturday night. The only room available was the loft apartment. I went straight on TripAdvisor & checked through the reviews. There was a recent terrible review on the loft apartment. So, we asked if we could view the room & were taken through it. I can report the room is very dated say 70’s era & on the dark side, hence, it didn’t have that spotlessly clean feel about it. It did have good air conditioning in the small bed room. The large bathroom has a double hand basin although only one mirror. The kitchen & dining was a nice size & overall the loft felt spacious. Some adjoining office areas were blocked off which made the loft seem disjointed. The balcony was the perfect size & we were sold! We booked the room & paid $400 a night including free parking! The only real negatives were the noise from the beach hotel late at night & the sounds of the garbage trucks in the early morning around 6AM. The positives far out way the negatives, number one location easy access to all of Byron & that balcony! Has to be the best balcony in Byron! Nothing better than sitting on that balcony with a drink, seafood & pizza watching the ocean & the people of Byron doing their thing. Finally, not having to drive around find a park spot & pay for it is a big plus.

I have stayed in Byron plenty of times but this is the best motel experience we have had. We stayed the week of Christmas, hosts were so helpful, room so clean and location amazing. Will definitely be back!

This is the worst unit ever at $350 per night and bedrooms with views blocked off half a slider door opens only so get ready to suffocate. It is disjointed and didn't even have adequate crockery see photographs. Oh and even the light was broken overthe basin in the already dimly lit bathroom. Any wonder the manager refused viewing the day before. Absolutely disgusted....

This is always our go to in Byron Bay. Not only is it located in the most amazing area, but the owners always go above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. Considering it’s beachfront location, it’s always has surprisingly reasonable rates and is great value!!
