Stayed on night as part of a trip up the East Coast. Not knowing Australia, I thought this was close to Byron Bay than it was. But it ended up being a good thing that it was about a 5-10 minute drive (not really walking distance) as the hotel location was quite and peaceful. Straight across the road opposite is... More

There us a great bakery/coffee shop quite close by as well as the pub, a bistro and a supermarket. We stayed in a studio room which was very clean and spacious. It... More

This motel was in a very quiet street which was great for peace and quiet. The pool was nice and the rooms are within walking distance to Tallows beach. At night you hear the roar of the waves which is relaxing We went into byron by taxi which wasn't too expensive and not far. The decor was very old and... More

Staying out of Byron Bay was a great idea this place is only a short drive and only takes a few minutes. Although the road into Byron can get quiet busy. This place was peaceful and the beach is right across the road. The bed and pillows were comfy. It was clean. Our studio room spacious and the best part... More

Thank you for your great descriptive review of our motel and surrounds. it is very important for our small motel to have guests write their own comments about their stay to enable others to get different perspectives of the rooms and surrounding area. it is so nice just to be able to wander the beach without crowds of people.

I couldn't fault this lovely Motel . I will miss going to sleep hearing the waves crashing on the beach . It is in a perfect place in a very quiet street about 15 mins out of Byron Byron on a Bicycle (!) and only 7 mins from Macs for breakfast . I stayed with my friend for four nights... More

Nice to share the fact that you can hear the surf - especially if the wind is up it crashes onto the sand!! and yes, you are right the local shop on the way into town, called Mac's store, is great for a quick snack. the local Park Hotel is also good for a meal at night without having to... More

Tallow Beach Motel is a lovely place to stay. Away from the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay but close enough to enjoy everything that Byron is famous for. The beach is right opposite with direct access via a short walking track. Rooms are very comfortable with some really nice touches. Suzie the owner can't do enough to make you... More

Thank you Paul for taking the time to write about your stay at our motel. To be able to walk across the road to the beach for sunrise is quite an experience so i do hope that next time the weather will be a little brighter. To have such nice people like yourself, stay with us and leave content make... More

If you like the beach it would be a wonderful place to stay. I needed a bed to sleep in and I'm sorry to say that like many other motels I've stayed at it was hard. The room itself was clean and the shower adequate. But the other areas in the bathroom were squeezed into small areas ... being a... More

we were disappointed to read that our motel was " nothing special " and that you found the bed hard for you.. The room that you occupied had the bed replaced with a new king bed a few months ago. It would seem that it is hard to find the bed that suits every persons requirements and we are sorry... More

sorry to read that you were disappointed with our rooms. The rooms can be a little dark during the winter months, especially on a cloudy day - unfortunately, the canvas awnings are there to stop the rain coming into the room through the louvre windows and the garden area outside the windows tends to be a little tropical. The tv... More

3 is "Average" and 4 is "Very Good", but this motel is neither! It is certainly better than "Average" but is not "Very Good". I would call it "Good". The location is excellent, in particular the proximity to a fabulous beach that does not have the Byron bay hoards on it. The street is quiet and the rooms are private,... More

Rosemary was phenomenal-great help and advice. She was simply the friendliest person - she saved our trip (after some lost luggage and visa confusion, her kindness helped us get back in vaca mode). The hotel is acros the street from a dog park and a beautiful beach. A bit of a walk to a restaurant and pub, and 5km south... More
