Went to Byron Bay writers festival . The Summerhouse in Byron bay is very special. Have stayed before. Was full during festival and staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast delicious - hard to diet with all fresh produce from Byron bay market.- fresh strawberries blueberries . Sitting on deck for breakfast heaven.

I recently spent 4 nights at the Summer House to celebrate my birthday. The birthday was significant and so was the Summer House experience. The views are divine; across the pool into the hinterland with Jullien Rocks and the Byron Bay Lighthouse as the backdrop. Huge lounge room opening to a magnificent balcony made for inviting surrounds and an unbeatable... More

I have just enjoyed the most perfect weekend in the Summerhouse. We stayed in the luxury room and spent a lot of time on our beautiful balcony enjoying the extraordinary views, the pool area was very tranquil and again THE VIEWS were out were out of this world. Breakfast was delicious, the friendly girls and the chef working there told... More

This is truly an amazing place to stay. The views are incredible and our room had a private balcony where you could relax and take in the expansive view. The staff were friendly and professional during a busy long week end. We were able to relax in the beautifully appointed lounge where you can enjoy the Dedon furniture and sumptuous... More

Words do not express how abominable our stay at the Summerhouse was on the weekend of June 6-9 2014. However, I will try my best to share with you the myriad reasons for why you should NOT stay here. I booked this place for my husband's milestone birthday thinking it would be a five-star B&B and make a nice change... More

We arrived at The Summerhouse and were booked in a room which was next to the common kitchen and loungeroom and pool area on the ground floor. Later that night, there were several guests having a gathering in the common area outside our bedroom which made it very noisy and difficult for us to enjoy ourselves. The fact that our... More

Expensive, noisy, cramped. Overpriced and not at all what the pictures of the property would lead one to believe. We both felt the place was like a high end backpackers. We were booked for the weekend but stayed the (Friday) night and left in the morning. We would never stay again. David H

A bit disappointing. Too close to the Bangalow - Byron road, which is fast and noisy. The rooms were clean and comfortable but without a single item of decoration. The view was great and the breakfast pleasant. Overpriced and not the quiet country retreat we were hoping for. Would not return.

A couple of days R&R at the Summerhouse was definitely not enough! Gorgeous location perched up on the hill, with a view of the sea, the lighthouse and the green countryside, this delightful oasis was perfect. The pool was gorgeous, and relaxing with friends on the terrace divine!
