This unassuming motel that looks so ordinary on the outside is an absolute delight. The Owners are consummate professionals genuinly happy and helpful. The Booking and check in process was flawless and the Big surprise came when we stepped into the rooms to find them flawlessly renovated and surprisingly spacious and comfortable as well as bright light and airy.

Great location,great staff, recommended to anyone going to byron, the rooms are clean and the staff went out of there way to make our trip enjoyable. Don't judge a book by its cover it looks a little old on the outside but the rooms have been renovated and it would be one of the best locations in byron

Very friendly, and accommodating people. Very motorcyclist friendly, upon arrival on my motorcycle, I was advised that my bike would be placed in the garage where it could be locked up and safe. The room was just what I like, equipped with utensils that you could be self contained, however the bay motel is right on the beach front and... More

This is the second time I have stayed there on a getaway from the pressures of a modern world. As with the first the managers Nancye and Greg could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Rooms bright and airy to make a stay comfortable and relaxing. Thoroughly enjoyed will be back for strike three. John Brassall Qld

My daughter and I, plus 3 grandchildren needed one night's accommodation on our way to the Gold Coast. We found the Bay Motel on Trip Advisor and it deserves all the positive comments posted. The motel is very clean, comfortable for the 5 of us, and the managers were friendly and helpful. We will certainly stay again.

Stayed here for 3 nights with friends. Able to check in early which was great. Rooms are clean and updated. Beds were comfortable and shower hot with good water pressure. Impressed with the cleanliness of the motel. Beach straight across the road. Cafes next to the motel and bars and town all within easy walking distance. The hosts are fantastic........ More

This is very central in Byron and within walking distance to everything. The rooms are basic but the beds are comfortable and the kitchen facilities are good. No balconies but there are chairs outside, but hey the beach is across the road and the pub is next door!

Great Location, very nice and well appointed room. Close to the major venues. The manager I suspect also washed my elderly Mothers car for her. A very nice gesture. Probably not suitable for a large ute as the parking is (in my mind) more suited to the average sedan. Overall an excellent experience and I will stay again when in... More
