We are a couple in our fifties and found the owners to be personable and accommodating. The apartment was clean and clearly older in style but well maintained.Would have loved some little luxuries like byron bay toiletries and even a starter kit of salt and pepper in the kitchen would have made it a bit more memorable. we are fit...

Our apartment was very clean and quiet and good value. All the property, pool and gardens were well maintained and Di and Doug were helpful and friendly. Walking is easy to beach and town centre and further. Very happy to recommend this hotel.

Thanks Susan G for your review - they always are helpful for people who are searching online. We think The Crest offers great value because our rooms are very spacious - big bedroom, bathroom and living area so you can really stretch out and relax. We also have one of the biggest pool and pool areas in Byron so again... More

After reading other tripadvisor reviews we were not disappointed. We arrived late afternoon after a long drive and were greeted by Doug & Di in a very friendly & relaxed manner. On booking we had requested a room at the back, we live in the middle of 150 acres of nothing but trees & wallabies so quieter rooms are always... More

Doug-owner- very helpful. Folder in apartment with recommended places to eat. Apartment comfortable, fine for us with our teenage son. Wifi was a little slow- not so good for teenage son! Peaceful location ,short walk to the beach and town centre.

Thanks Mandy for such a nice review. We're glad our good food guide came in handy. We are working on improving our wi-fi but compared to the UK and Europe Australian network speeds are quite slow. Hopefully you will come and visit again and be able to stay longer so you can enjoy everything Byron has to offer. More

Di and Doug are extremely helpful. The apartments are well appointed, clean, tidy and the location is brilliant. We didn't use the pool while we were there, but it was heated and the outdoor area has a BBQ as well. We'll definitely stay here again.

Thank you B33B3LL for your review it is appreciated. The pool is heated to 27 degrees and the pool area is being drenched in beautiful winter sun (22 degrees) so we have lots of guests swimming and sunbathing everyday!! We hope you will come back and join us again More

Very nice reasonably priced accommodation. Lovely warm welcome from the owners. Excellent position. Spotlessly clean and tidy. Comfortable beds. All the facilities one needs and the Kookaburras come to visit the back garden. Could not fault it.

Thank you DummerPlumber for your comprehensive review it's really appreciated. For many people searching online it is quality reviews like yours that helps them make a decision to stay at The Crest. We're glad you got to meet our resident Kookaburras - a beautiful bird with some real character. Hopefully you will be able to come out to Australia again... More

This is a great place to stay in Byron - very central and close to restaurants, pubs and shops. Apartments are a good size and very well appointed - with a lovely sunny balcony complete with resident kookaburra.

I was very lucky to get the last available 1-bedder at The Crest for 4 nights while I went to the Byron Bay Writers Festival, 7-9 August 2015. The hosts Di and Doug were very helpful and friendly, the saltwater pool gets the last of the afternoon sun, the bed was so comfy and quiet, and all mod cons were... More

Thank you Carolyn K for you great review. Our guests do appreciated the free wi-fi - actually it amazes us that some place are still trying to charge for wi-fi. The pool is heated to 27 degrees and then with the beautiful winter sun it is going up a further 1-2 degrees so it great to swim in. The pool... More
