We stayed in apartment number 5 (Mata Hari) at The Crest, Shirley St, Byron Bay. Excellent booking and confirmation service through www.destinationbyronbay.com.au and our apartment was super clean, tastefully decorated and conveniently located about 8 mins walk from town centre. Good size for a couple and I appreciated having a washer and dryer and ceilings fans in two mains rooms... More

I had a lovely stay at the Crest. The staff were friendly and helpful and the apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped.. It was a short walk into the main part of Byron and close to the beach. The complex was very quiet and the pool area was so relaxing. The price was also very reasonable. I would definitely... More

Family of 4 stayed in a 2 bedroom villa during latter part of Jan school hols. We found the location worked very well, the apartments & surrounds very well maintained and quiet. The in room facilities worked well (good size TV) and the BBQ by the pool area clean and never too crowded. The underground car park meant no early... More

Stayed a week and found the accommodation perfect for our little family (2 kids age 1 & 2). We had a 2 storey villa, it was dated but that didn't worry us. Clean, enough space and great layout, the private enclosed courtyard is perfect for kids, they can go in and out and you can see them easily. The villas... More

We just returned from an 11-night stay at Crest Apartments - we stayed in apartment #20 which is a privately owned rental called Villa Aitutaki. The villa is absolutely lovely - the decor is more modern and tasteful than the regular rooms at Crest, but also a little more expensive; $270/nt in late Jan/Feb. The villa was our little haven...

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Crest Apartments. We are in our mid 50's and were visiting Byron to surprise our son who was also visiting, as well as have a short getaway. Don't be put off by the 70's office where everything was on display. The one bedroom apartment was as advertised and our request... More

Stayed at Crest Apartments during the first week of January 2013 with my young family. (Wife and 2 children). Apartments are a little dated, think circa 1990's but very clean, pleasant and functional . The staff are extremely helpful and care about their apartments. Parking is convenient and access is great. I'm a massive fan of Byron Bay because it... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom balcony apartment overlooking the pool for a week. Everything was as advertised, clean and had all facilities we needed. The apartment was centrally located, only 5 minute walk to shops and beach and our car was in secure parking. All staff were friendly and helpful. Would be happy to recommend.

The folks at the front desk are like the uncle who pats you on the back and cracks a joke that is slightly off, but at the same time you know his heart is genuinely in the right place and he's trying hard. The units are a bit dated. They need new lighting ('daylight' white compact flouro lighting just doesn't... More
