On a driving holiday from UK we stayed for one night (4th Feb) as part of a short break. Positioned in a quiet street literally 5 mins walk from town centre, 10 mins to main beach. Beautifully appointed, comfortable double en suite and very tasteful public areas (lounge / terrace). Continental breakfast on a help yourself basis in kitchen with... More

Virginia the owner of Barbara's Guesthouse has revamped these premises to create a beautiful contemporary oasis. The rear garden and undercover outdoor area is conducive to relaxing, communal dining or just a place to curl up and read a good book on the day bed( as we did). There is a stylish communal kitchen ( including a coffee machine) which... More

We spent 4 lovely nights at Barbara's guesthouse. It is a beautiful cottage with clean, comfortable, stylish rooms and a fantastic back yard where you can relax and read a book or fall asleep on the day bed. The owner was delightful and welcoming. It was the perfect place to escape for a couple of days. I would highly recommend... More

Our best stay on the trip Sydney to Brisbane. Nice and caring hostess and only 6 rooms gives av very nice atmosphere. A small but nice self-service breakfast is included. We enjoyed sitting in a hamock in the back garden, reviewing the day and takkronor other guests. A nice place!

Its difficult to review this place... I loved the house, the garden, the room, the location, the peaceful atmosphere, the cleanliness of all common areas, the very friendly manager Virginia! So many plus points! Yet for 300 AUD per night (high season rate) I simply expect more service. There is no one there when you arrive to explain things to... More

The house is amazing! Clean, well-located and well-furnished/comfortable. City center is a 5-min walk away. Perfect for a visit of Byron Bay. It puts you directly in the right mood. :-) Barbara's guesthouse is definitely to be recommended.

Barbara's Guest House was a very clean and comfortable stay. The décor was fresh and bright with a perfect 'beach house' feel to it which was perfect for its location. Despite being fully booked it was quiet and we were never disturbed by the other residents. The location was ideal for walking to the beach or main shopping and café... More
