We have stayed here once a few years back. Since then the rooms have been updated (very recently I would think). Beds were new and comfy. All very clean and tidy. The outside of the motel is very dated but the central location easily makes up for that. Good value for money in an otherwise very pricey region.

Having recently been refurbished, these rooms are modern, comfortable and kept really clean. Everything you needed was included in the kitechenette. Check in was easy, the staff were chatty and helpful. I would definitely recommend Hibiscus Motel.

This place is nothing fancy, but very clean and it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Unfortunately for us the place next door was being renovated so we were woken up very early by the workers and loud noises, but we were only there for two nights and our last day was a Saturday and they were off...

Located right in the heart of Byron, walking distance to everything. Place was spotless, management really friendly would stay here time and time again. Being able to go out to dinner, have a few drinks and walk back to our room was perfect.

We had a wonderful time at the Hibiscus Motel. The owners marg and joe were very nice and so helpful and had a great knowledge of the area which was great as we had not been to Byron bay before. Nothing was too much trouble.
