We have visited the Beach Hotel many times and always leave wanting to come back. Sadly today we tried to buy a dark beer and were informed that the bar no longer has any dark beers on tap! The one option (no draft) was over-priced. We voted with our feet and went to another Byron pub that still has dark... More

I have a couple of nights at this place each year and have only seen decline each occasion. The building itself is quite nice with oversize motel rooms in a very good location. Some very good architectural features. Service was friendly and room clean. However many elements are outdated including room furnishings and the primitive shower rose which only suits... More

With water views from this pub it has a great beach atmosphere. Meals, drinks & live entertainment. I love the Sunday afternoon 'session' which draws a good crowd & usually has a band. Very popular with visitors to Byron Bay. I was here over the weekend & I know there is also accommodation onsite but have never stayed.

Don't stay here....it's very very noisy (right next to the pub), no beach views (as advertised), poor bathrooms - just not worth the money. I won't be back that's for sure!!! On the upside, the bed was very comfortable & the room was spacious. Unfortunately, this didn't make up for all the downsides. My advice: try somewhere else!

There are plenty of reviews complaining about how old fashioned and tatty this hotel is. And they're not entirely wrong. But for the price and the location it is totally fine for me. I didn't find it that tatty in fact. I thought it was reasonably well kept and the rooms are quite big. So I was only too happy... More

Lunch purchased from the Beach Hotel today was disgusting. I ordered the chicken parmigiana, this was served within 1 minute of the purchase and I reasonably suspect that it was premade 45 minutes prior for someone else. The chicken had a soggy coating and was dry and cold. The chips and salad that came with the meal were equally unpalatable.... More

My husband and I decided to visit the hotel after many years. The place is still busy and the atmosphere is always pumping. Crowds of people, you can't hear yourself think - the meals are very expensive and even the beers on tap are over priced. in comparison to the many country pubs we have visited the condition of the...

We went there for a birthday lunch. My husband & I ordered Linguine with meatballs in a Napoli Sauce. The meatballs were like rubber & the sauce was totally lacking in any flavor. We also had plates of chips to share and they were undercooked. Very disappointing! The only reason you would go there is for the beach view because... More

Great location and lovely view of the beach but the hotel/ resort just seems a bit tired and in need of an update. I felt that the AUD$300+ per night was definitely too much to pay. Did not eat at the hotel pub when we were here as there were so many other restaurants within walking distance.

Byron is renowned for relaxation and this place is just the place to sit back..have a few..with a beach view. Have some great lunch.. and unwind. Really liked it. Id go back.. in fact i cant wait. Be nice to listen to a band and chillax.
