Nice clean room with tropical decor. Lovely garden and delightful pool which was good when beach was closed due to rough surf. Loved the bar fridge and certainly very reasonably priced. Would probably stay there again.

The initial contact with the staff gave a good indication of the rest of our stay. The room was excellent the bed super comfortable. The reading nook was exactly what we needed. A short walk to the beach. An excellent stay

It was a real pleasure to stay here - as if an eccentric old aristocrat decided to indulge his hotelier aspirations and open a little seaside accommodation by renovating a classic old fifties motel. The structure of the old motel is still there , but overlaid with a rich tropical patina of luxury touches and superb detailing that make this... More

This was the perfect location for us - looking for a quiet spot outside busy Byron bay. Beach basically across the street and very quiet and relaxing at night. Rosemary the motel manager was very nice and caring. Our only negative point is the absence of hot water tap in the kitchenette! Other than that very clean comfortable and cozy

This small motel just behind the beach and with a small pool is ideally positioned for 3 or 4 or more days in the Byron Bay area. We have stayed there many times while visiting family. The rooms, building and surrounds are very well maintained and always clean. The kitchenette facilities are a welcome bonus.

Lovely clean spacious room including kitchenette, large bathroom and sun lounge. Pool looked nice although we did not have time to use it. In a quiet area just across the road from the beach which stretches all the way to Byron bay lighthouse, 5 minutes from shops and a couple of restaurants. Landlady was incredibly friendly and helpful with some... More

Location is good almost on the beach. Accommodation is budget and needs updating , but ensuite is adequate with a good shower . Cutlery and crockery needs replacing up to a decent standard. In room 9 microwave needs to be moved as it is in the corner above the television .
