Terrific location. My partner booked this motel as we were on our way to Sydney and had decided to travel via the coast as much as was possible. Motel very dated but 'clean' as can be expected for a motel I suppose. One of our towels was stained. There was no sugar for our coffee. The milk portion was out... More

After booking in she gave us a map of the area and some good orientation details for Byron Bay. Our room was on the first level and was very clean and well presented. The... More

In the middle of town and across from the beach, very friendly staff. Whilst the building is old, the rooms have been recently refurbished and are very clean, comfortable beds,... More

Proximity to the beach and shops/bars/restaurants was great but still far enough away from the main street to avoid all the noise and crowds. Linda the manager was... More

Always thought Manly was it. Then we spent 3 nights here in Byron with the oh so hospitable folks at Bay Beach Motel. Here's a quick run down.... It's not a five star resort, and we certainly got what we paid for, which is excellent value, given the proximity to the main streets of Byron; Everything is within walking distant;... More
