Chose the Bay Motel for two nights as the bus pick up for the wedding I was attending was over the road at the Surf Club. I knew I would be out of the room for most of my stay, so didn't need a luxury resort. When I opened the front door, I was pleasantly surprised. Fresh, renovated rooms, comfortable... More

This is a 1960's style motel that has recently had a makeover. Probably more suited to people passing through for a one nighter than long term stay. The 'balcony' is a walkway with a view of a wall and the noisy birds and bin collectors between 5 and 6.30am are quite bad if you like a relaxing sleep in whilst... More

Across the road from the beach and walking distance to lost of restaurants etc. This is in the busy hub of byron so very convenient. Small rooms which were clean and tidy. Walls thin so you hear folks in next rooms and others walking past. However, given the rates and location one can overlook this. Gates closed at night and... More

Rang to book on Thursday for Friday, fully booked but Greg squeezed us in a back room. We asked about parking as we were on motorbikes and he freed up his personal carport for our bikes. Great location straight across from the beach and close to everything. Thanks for the fantastic service.

Just across from the beach, and a short walk to cafés and shops. The accommodation was very clean and tidy. We would definitely recommend this place. Our only two complaints are the lady in reception (not sure of her name) but she literally grunted at us when we said we wanted to checkin. Not a very nice welcome. We didn't... More

Rooms were recently renovated and perfectly clean and comfortable with AC and a good TV, the owners very friendly, helpful and accommodating, secure parking on site. The location is amazing, in front of the beach and next to cafes yet quiet and reasonably private. Will stay again.

We'd never considered staying here before as we have our favourite places to stay when we come to Byron (Beach Suites, Julian's Apartments etc), depending on the length of our visit. As accommodation in Byron is a bit on the expensive side, we've recently been trying out new places as we love Byron as a holiday destination. The Bay Motel... More
