I am a frequent traveler for business and for pleasure. I travel weekly and stay in hotels all over the world. This hotel is horribly dirty and the staff is terrible. I should have know when I checked in and they hand you a notice that once you pay you can't get a refund. They don't allow you to see... More

Great location.. Was disappointed to find sand in all 5 beds! Very uncomfortable sleep! Considering we hadn't even visited the bed! All towels also felt damp. Wouldn't come back. Staff also told us it was the linen company that would've been the reasoning for the sand in our beds.. Yuck.

We visited this motel July 2015. Good location, right on the water. There were four of us staying in our room, we checked in late in the afternoon. Rooms looked clean, had kitchen. If you leave rooms dirty, dishes unwashed or rubbish in room you occur a $50 fee. We pulled a blanket out from the cupboard and it was... More

This is the second time we have stayed here, the last time a couple of years ago. We like it because we paddle board and it is easy to walk across the road to the beach. Close to everything. The room is always immaculate. Was a bit cold this time and needed another blanket, but not a big deal. The... More

We really enjoyed staying here for 1 night in Byron. But... the bathroom towels are strange. They felt like they were wet before we used them. They were indeed dry but they felt wet if that makes sense. Neither of us liked using them. The in-house Wi-Fi set off my anti-virus software like never before. Finally, don't use Amex. There...

Across from the beach and walking distance to shopping areas, staff were very friendly and helpfull with onsite parkng and clean neat modern rooms with all amenities provided. Not much to look at from the outside and you would probably keep going but don't judge a book by its cover. We stayed for a couple of days and have just... More

I stayed here for a few nights in March after a last minute decision to fly up from Sydney. I wanted something as close to the beach as possible and this was it! The bed was really comfy with nice sheets, yes, really! Best nights sleep I'd had in weeks from travelling around and the room was really modern despite... More

Great location, not a great deal of parking, no sink in room to wash the dishes, limited laundry acess, very handy to cafes, service sometimes friendly, towels need to be thrown out for better quality ones!

Great location, nicely renovated rooms. This hotel looks very tired on the outside and in the reception (makes you a little scared about what you are about to walk into) but the inside of the rooms are fully refurbished and comfortable. There was noise from the pub next door and the beach across the road but that all stopped by... More
