I was very surprised at fantasic location, right on beach and right near the beach hotel.....definately would say its a hidden gem. Nice updated rooms which u don't expect from the outside. Free parking in fenced area, close to everything. Amazing spot if you want to be central without the price tag!!

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.

My wife and I decided to have a break whilst visiting relatives in Brisbane. Byron Bay was recommended to us. We only intended to stay one night but after the first day we decided to make a weekend of it. The owners of the Motel said we could have the second night at a reduced rate.The Motel is only small...

I called and cancelled at this Hotel over a month in advance. I also cancelled on the first night after getting a phone call from the new manager wondering where I was. After thinking everything was sorted out and fine, two weeks later I get a bill charged to my credit card for $700.00. After being hung up on and... More

Very good first impression. Room was spotless, comfortable and spacious for a couple. There is no view nor outside seating area but very close to beach, foreshore reserve, shops and restaurants (few minutes walk). Friendly, helpful hosts. Agree with the other positive reviews.

Stayed at Hibiscus Motel with my teenage daughters. The Motel is centrally located to shops and beach which was great because the girls could walk everywhere. This Motel has recently had a make-over and the twin room we had was updated, sparkling clean, beds comfortable and owners warm and inviting. Thanks for a pleasant surprise.

This hotel has a great location and is super clean. Free laundry and boogie boards on site. The proprietor is a stand-up fella. Great service. I'm not sure you'll find a better deal in Byron Bay. A+ accommodations.

It's always nice to open the door to a room and be pleasantly surprised - that was the case with our stay at the Hibiscus. Beautiful room, very clean, bright and well-appointed. Owners friendly - and Byron Bay itself is fantastic.

My wife, 4 year old daughter, and I stayed in a 2 bedroom twin suite at the Hibiscus Motel for 3 nights in March, 2015. Heather and Les checked us in and left me with a huge amount of tips for activities from kayaking, surfing, massages and places to eat. Great tips too! This is an incredibly central hotel, 2...
