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

Stayed at The Crest Byron Bay in May with some friends. It was a great relaxing place to stay & play, a short, easy walk into town, easy access to the beach, private, clean & very spacious one bedroom apartment. The heated pool was just lovely and a great BBQ area. The Managers Dianne & Doug were very helpful, nothing... More

Thank you Kelly B for your wonderful review - you covered so many great points that we are sure will help other people who are considering staying at The Crest. Even though it is winter we are still having great weather. Our Pool area is quite sheltered from the wind so many guests are still lounging in the gorgeous winter... More

Stayed at the Crest in May with my wife for two nights only. The accomodation is well located - a short walk from both the beach and the main streets and action. (restaurants/ pubs/ shopping) The room was spacious and met all our needs. Di and Doug were both hospitable and relaxed and made you feel welcome I can recommend... More

Thanks Anne for a great review. We have the pool heated to a beautiful 28 degrees so you can still swim everyday. There is always great live music on in Byron Bay and the best part is it's free!

Loved the relaxed, peaceful environment created at the Crest. The apartments are large, clean and with everything you need and all are beautifully positioned looking out on well maintained tropical gardens and pool. Thank you Dianne and Doug for your hospitality and warm welcome and we will be returning soon 😀

The Crest Apartments were a pleasure to stay at. A casual stroll from the centre of Byron and its wonderful beach, the apartments are more like a low-rise modern apartment block with on site caretakers to look after any problems which may arise. The development has been kept in tip top condition and really feel like a home away from... More
