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

recent stay from Adelaide so looking forward to light & bright surroundings. Picture of room deceptive as dark due to Canvas blinds outside & heavy undergrowth outside the one window , so not really a sun room. T.V really poor reception , also no hot water tap in small kitchen area. On positive close to beach & in quiet area,... 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

Booked this after reading reviews on trip advisor and wasn't disappointed. It was just a good distance from Byron, friendly staff, we had the tallow suite which was very roomy. We have been very satisfied for the price and location. Loved the macadamia shortbread cookies in the cookie jar. Bathroom also provided shampoo and conditioner, shower gel and shower scrub.... More

A great little motel 150 metres from the waters edge (at high tide) and 5kms south of the BB township. Comfortable, neat and tidy, tastefully updated accomodation for the right tariff. There's no doubt we will be back.

Paradise! Well appointed tropical Balinese design and ambience, exemplary attentive staff, wonderful location, walking distance to idyllic beach, hear waves at night, walk to beach and short journey to Byron Bay hustle and bustle. Paradise! Walter (Melbourne)

Thanks for mentioning the sound of the surf! it is a great holiday sound i think when it is a heavy sea and you are safe in bed. Appreciate your feedback and the Suite does have a lot more room than the studio rooms. Being able to walk across the road to the beach in the morning is wonderful. More

Very friendly staff. Clean and large rooms with a nice sitting room for talking that overlooks gardens. Nice pool. Incredibly close to the beach, it is literally across the street! Comfortable beds as well.

This motel has a great location, super friendly staff and their rooms are modern with a big LCD TV and very clean. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Just across the road from the not over crowded Tallow Beach and close drive to centre of town but very quiet and no noise from the usual tourist traffic. Also... More
