4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed in a back room without a view of the bay. It was reactively quite with the exception of a few noisy travellers walking past your balcony. The room is quite with the doors shut. Location to shops is close. The beds are comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would stay again.

We are on a 2 month trip my husband, myself & our 2 year old. We booked very last minute after we decided to go to Byron Bay 1 day early. The only issue we had was the internet not functioning properly in our rooms. Because we work while we travel the internet is a must. The staff Brynwon &... More

Friendly and obliging staff. Room was clean and tidy and generous space. We preferred a quiet room and were accommodated with a room towards the rear of the hotel. Noisy garbage truck in the morning impossible to escape and lasted only a few minutes. Free upgrade was appreciated and it was offered rather than requested. We will certainly use again... More

Had a wonderful 5 night stay at Waves in August. We were in the Waves suite, which has courtyard and lounge area. The lounge was especially great as it rained for 3 days, and for cold nights. Great tv which allowed iPad and iPod to be plugged in with our own cables. Free breakfast was of fresh, tasty muffins, apples,... More

My wife and I stayed at Waves in Byron Bay on the 16 and 17 August 2014. Most people in Byron will remember that weekend for the amount of rain that fell on Saturday 16th. We went to a wedding on that day! Waves is similar to many of the B&B only hotels operating in Byron and similar resorts on... More

Waves is in an incredible location. The staff are lovely, and the hotel is fine - it's just nothing special. The beds are comfortable, but the rooms and hotel itself are a tiny bit dated. The bathrooms aren't great, and the only large mirror in the bathroom is at the end of the bath - so if you want to... More
