I stayed at this venue for 4 nights recently in a very busy time at Byron Bay. Although a little old but it is clean and all self contained kitchen laundry etc were all good, the balcony is very spacious and good for any entertaining. A good thing is a strict no excessive noise policy after 10.30 with penalties to... More

The receptionist was kind of rude. I asked for $4 discount and she said here's the best cost effective of byron area. It's not true, my room was a bit dirt and the view from the balcony is not so good there's a building just close to my nose. The wifi supposed to be good but frequently it brakes when... More

Stayed here for 5 nights with my 4 year old daughter. The room was spacious, had a comfortable double bed and a single ( with trundle ). Kitchenette, washing machine and dryer so totally self sufficient which was great. The balcony was also spacious and great for that morning cuppa or brekky or just to hang out. A good, safe... More

Great position within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. Rooms are spacious and well appointed for budget accommodation. The balcony area is large and a good place to enjoy breakfast. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. My only suggestion to management would be to try and source a door as efficient as the balcony door is at cutting... More

Most accommodation in Byron Bay is really overpriced but I thought this place was pretty good. It's a nice motel room but you also get a washing machine and cooking equipment as well, which is great. Our room also had a balcony, which was a nice spot to sit and relax in the evening. The motel is in a great,... More

We stayed at Byron Bay Side Central Motel for four nights. It was very suitable for us due to its location. The room was tidy, it was well equipped. There was a nice balcony. The surroundings was quiet. WiFi was ok. Nothing to complain. If you have difficulties of stairs, then ask first for options. There is no lift.

Love our trip to Byron at Byron Bayside Central Motel. We were there for 5 nights and had a great time. Clean & spacious room with kitchenette and lounge area. Very close to Aldi, restaurants and the beach. We didn't use the Wifi as much as it seems very limited.

We were there only one night in transit from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast and were pleasantly surprised to find laundry facilities. There was also a functional kitchenette and large balcony, and this would be a good choice for a longer stay. The location could not be faulted. The only downside was that the decor was a little tired.

Our motel room was very well equipped with everything you need to settle in for a while, including washer and dryer, and a kitchen. It was very homely. It is very close to the beach and walking distance to everything. The best thing was discovering an amazing vegetarian Indian cafe in the same building.

Stayed here for one night, room was very clean, bed was comfortable, nice basic room. There was no issues with noise at all, I didn't hear anything outside all night and it was a Saturday night stay. Great place to stay if you want good basic Byron Bay accommodation and it's also in town but not on the main street.... More
