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.

I loved my stay here! Doesn't feel like a motel- Beautiful room which was very spacious and well equipped. Friendly service and great location on the beach! I will definitely return and recommend to others!

Stayed one night in a twin room. I stuffed up the booking originally, however the lovely owner was only too happy to change the room. Beautifully presented rooms, very clean with everything we needed- fridge, microwave, tv, aircon. The motel has parking outside your door as you would expect and the beach is literally right across the road. There's some... More

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
