This property was a perfect place to stay if you want to be close to the beach and all the action of Byron, restaurants and shops etc. Staff were friendly and room was very spacious. Would recommend highly.

Waves was an excellent place to stay during a long weekend. The staff were so helpful, the rooms beautiful and big and the location just perfect. The carpark entry is really steep and the carpark is a bit squeezy, but it's okay because once you have parked your car you won't need it again until you have to leave. Waves... More

Good location, friendly staff - nice and clean - just had issues with wifi reaching all the rooms which is frustrating. The Austar is limited but if you are out of your room most of the time that's fine. Free coffee and muffins in the morning and quick stroll to the beach. Nice and quiet and easily come and go...

I really enjoyed my recent two night stay at Waves. Two girlfriends and I were in Byron for a wedding and had all managed to separately book rooms here. The location was excellent, the price was right and everything was easy to get to. Check in was a breeze, the underground secure parking handy (though a bit squeezy) and my... More

We were pleasantly surprised with our recent visit to Waves, the service on arrival was warm, reception smelt great and was very clean and welcoming on a cold night with the fireplace already on. Our room was more than adequate, clean, plenty of room, good sized bathroom and quiet. Wine on arrival and muffins on departure at breakfast time were... More

We were promised a nice view when we made our booking but were shafted to a room that looked directly into another motel. No apology. On top of this we could hear people from the street all night long.

Hi Eileen, We were very disappointed to receive your review, but thought it prudent to point out some of the issues regarding your stay. Upon thorough investigation, our property does enjoy good views, and upon booking no guarantee is every made regarding the actual room position until check-in, only room type. You were offered P/H 2, as per availability ,... More

I have visited Byron Bay many times and I am only 2 hours drive away. I will always stay at Waves as it is the most central location. The service staff are outstanding and very welcoming. They have a fantastic knowledge of the area and are extremely accommodating. Secondly, the rooms are a perfect fit for my short stay, they... More

I have stayed here before for business however first time for a get away & we had the best room in this conveniently located complex. This is one of these places where you park the car securely in the basement and you can just walk the whole of Byron Bay. Next time we will book the same room and spend... More

We have stayed at Waves numerous times over a number of years because of its great location and quality rooms. This visit didn't disappoint. Our suite was recently renovated and comfortably furnished. The only thing missing was free WiFi. In a hotel of this quality we kind of expected it. We loved the quality complimentary muffins, juice, coffee and fruit... More
