Had a great stay over the last weekend. Doug and Di were friendly and very helpful, the room was well appointed and spacious, and the facilities excellent (including the bucket and brush to clean off all the Splendour in the Grass mud!!)

The one bedroom apartment was immaculately presented and very comfortable. All of the amenities throughout the complex looked great. It is in a really handy spot. Only drawback is that the units at the front of the complex are noisy - my bedroom shook when trucks passed by. Fantastic to have free wifi!

The Crest apartments were just lovely. Di and Doug were very helpful and very accommodating. The beautiful pool was a joy to swim in and the pool area was a lovely place to relax at. The apartment was very roomy and all facilities were supplied. I would highly recommend using these apartments and enjoying the hospitality of Di and Doug.

Recently spent a weekend away at The Crest Byron Bay in May. Really impressed with the room layouts and being so close to the beach, and the easy walk into town to the local restaurants, cafes and bars and amazing little shops. It was hard to believe it was almost winter as we enjoyed the heated pool and cooking up... More

Thanks Livelifenow for such a fantastic review - you covered everything!! Since you stayed we have re-painted and re-carpeted the apartments and they look nice and clean and fresh. The first whales have been spotted in the Bay so don't delay in booking your whale watching and coming and staying again. More

It's always hard to choose your accommodation online but I picked well here. Beautiful gardens, large heated pool and a great clean bbq area. Our apartment was perfect with everything we needed. The beach and town were a short walk. We easily walked into town for dinner each night. Staying on my own for five blissful days before the family... More

Stayed at the Crest for a week in June for a family holiday and to escape the Melbourne winter weather. Cannot fault rooms, location or hospitality. Newly refurbished rooms and well manicured gardens was just an added bonus. Short stroll to the beach through the back of the resort is also a definite advantage. Already planning our next trip to...

Thank you Kass for such a positive review. You mentioned the refurbished rooms - we are very pleased with the way they turned out and we have had many positive comments from other guests as well. The new carpet in the bedroom is lovely under foot. We hope that you will come and stay with us again soon. More
