The motel has been recently refurbished so the rooms look much better than the outside. They are rather small, but very cosy and functional - and they look good too. The location is superb - very close to the beach and the "action" downtown, but still in a quiet area. Friendly owners. Highly recommended.

We discovered BB is a pretty expensive place to stop with limited accommodation. Hibiscus was recommended to us by the Beach Motel which is owned by the same person. But the Hibiscus has been renovated, rooms were clean, with the necessary amenities as well as limited free wireless internet. Located within the central BB area with easy access to lots... More

A great motel super close to the main beach (about a 2 min walk!) and all the restaurants and shops etc. Owners are lovely and very helpful, there's free wifi with a generous limit for every device but they were happy to extend this for us as my bf was revising for an exam! Super helpful. The rooms were great,... More

We stayed here for the first time over the weekend - well, our first time at this motel but we have been to Byron several times before. This place is a real find. The location is awesome, right near the centre of town but still quiet. The four of us stayed in a two bedroom unit and there was plenty... More

Best motel we (2 couples) have ever stayed at. New, clean och perfect location, only 2 minutes of walking to the beach and shopping and restaurants right outside the motel. Quiet. Free parking. Friendly staff.

We had not booked any accommodation before arriving in Byron Bay. The first motel was full but sent us to the Hibiscus. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and shown a room before deciding to stay. The room was bright and spotlessly clean. The Hibiscus is quite central and you can easily walk everywhere from here. It's an ideal... More

Thank you for taking the time out to review Hibiscus Motel. We were away on leave when you stayed with us, but it sounds as though the couple that looked after Hibiscus Motel for us did a grand job.

We will always remember our time here in August 2013, because the new owner/manager made us feel so welcome and all that was needed was in our very comfortable and clean studio unit.
