Having struggled to find resort accommodation for our "large family" of five including three children for 1 night, we booked into the relatively cheap Bayside Central Motel. We had to book 2 rooms to accommodate the three kids. The receptionist was polite but I felt like I was booking into. A backpackers hostel with the car garage closing at 9pm... More

It is important to us that people are happy , we are sorry you were unable to book a 2 bedroom apartment for your family, you did not book our airconditioned units and found the hours of the undercover parking limited. We don’t have any bars or parks near us? More

Stayed 1 night, off season. Rate was $130, best price in town. Walking distance to ocean and all shops. Room 12 was spacious, clean, lovely balcony with afternoon sun, and to top it all off--washer and dryer in the bathroom! Travelling by car from Sydney to Brisbane, this was the best value and most relaxing.

We stayed there during schoolies and they were the cheapest we found (apart form backpackers). The whole place was very clean, in a quiet area and only few steps from everything. About 5 min walk to the beach, even less to the center. There was a underground parking which we didn't use as we didn't have a car there. So... More

We stayed here Nov 17-21 (2013) in an upstairs room on the south end. It had a balcony which overlooked the next door neighbours who put on a great show as they were practicing their fire twirling. This motel is located in a very central part of Byron Bay, with shopping centres, great places to eat, and the beach, which... More

I stayed here early 2013 after reading some decent reviews. However when we arrived i was not impressed. The place is terribly dated, you must carry all your luggage up the stairs, you can only access the car park within certain hours, the room has very little natural light, the tv was missing a cord plug in so did not...

We stayed at the Bayside Central for a couple of nights on our way up the east coast. The motel lived up to our expectations with excellent laundry and catering facilities. It was ideally placed for all the local amenities yet it was located in a quiet side street with little traffic. The apartment was serviced daily and was very... More

This is a home away from home. Having stayed here regularly for nearly 20 years, I always look forward to staying here. Peter, Marianne and Cameron do whatever they can to make your stay the best it can be.

I spent 4 nights here in September and found the whole experience very relaxing. The rooms are not super modern in decor but they are clean and have all the facilities and utensils you'll need. The staff were so friendly and helpful which also added to the experience. I'd recommend getting a room at the back so you can have... More

The staff at Byron Bay Side Central Motel are very nice. My partner was quite sick and they were very considerate. Excellent location considering the good price. When we return to Byron we will go back as we were very happy.
