Had two nights at the Sunseeker after an recommendation. The motel is styled exceptionally well with the rooms having all the modern conveniences. The issue for me was noise and a little lack of care for the price range. Room 4 is located right next to the housekeeping store room so from 10am the staff talking and moving in and out, it was like they’re in the room with you. The pool is out the other side so you hear chatter from all the guests. On top of that they forgot to service my room so after purposely going out I came back to an unmade room. The second night the neighbourhing house had a party and again the conversations that went till 4am made for an unsettling night. This is of no fault of the motel but ruined my stay. Good things: close to town and nice staff.

Awesome staff and great value for money over the Christmas break! Everywhere else was 2 or 3 times more!! We found Sunseekers staff friendly and accommodating in every way. The pool is fantastic with great deck chairs and umbrellas. Rooms are spacious and clean and surprisingly really quiet inside. It’s about a 15-20min walk to the main strip which was totally fine as you can get an Uber cheap enough if you want to. Highly recommended

Friendly & informative welcome by the owner. Room was clean, spacious and comfy with tea and coffee facilities, fridge and good size bathroom. The pool was the winner for this place. Lovely garden surrounds and nice size pool. I would recommend for small families as there is also a bbq area by the pool to make your own meals. A short drive from the city centre so best to have a car.

This is a standard low-star motor-inn sort of place. But we found the rooms to be very clean, with a good choice of 'freebies' in the bathroom (usually you get the tired, drab stuff, but this was a nice touch in a motel in this budget-range). But the kicker were the staff. The owners/managers had us laughing and relaxed within 5 minutes of arrival. So funny, witty, charming and extremely helpful. A definite consideration if going to Byron for a couple days
