My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night in an economy suite. It was a little small but functional and homely comfortable. The external appearance is very green and full of nice and well-groomed palms and bushes. Falling asleep with the far sound of the wave-breaking ocean was very nice in opposite to the noisy highway-motels. Recommendable!

A very comfortable and relaxing stay. Hosts were eager to assist with all our needs and requirements. Motel is situated in a perfect position for beach and is just far enough away from the main area of Byron.

comfortable, clean, Indo inspired room. Loveliest owners and easy check in and out. About 10 minute drive from centre of Byron but their are small necessity shops and a café nearby. Beach straight across the road...good for surfing. Not sure if they had WIFI.

Stayed here last year and didn't look anywhere else to stay this year. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the location is nice and quiet and only across the road from Tallow Beach which is amazing! It is a short drive to Byron Bay town centre (bit too far to walk) but that's what I like about this... More

Had to stay in Byron last minute for work, and the staff were very helpful with the last minute booking, even upgrading the room for free! The place was clean and very nice and while I didn't get a chance to use it, the pool looked beautiful. The rooms were almost a Balinese style, not what I was expecting, but... More

We spent the long weekend at tallow beach motel. Was not long enough. We had a great time. The grounds were clean and relaxing and we spent most of out time by the pool or across the road at the beach. The rooms were great with everything you need and more. The owners are friendly and are there to help.... More

It's just a perfect place, close to a great beach, great owners and really very comfortable. It's only drawback is that it's not super close to Byron Bay itself, but not that far either... it doesn't matter, it's just a great place!

Delightful combination of friendliness, cleanliness, serenity and comfortable rusticity. Small but adequate pool is situated in a delightful little well kept tropical garden complete with female and male budha statues and a neat little water feature..very tranquil.
