We just needed a quick last minute getaway so we decided to try Waves in Byron. We stayed in a penthouse unit. It was massive. The staff were lovely and the rooms were clean. The beach side location amazing. Don't need much more!

Quiet, contemporary, very convenient. A tiny bit of road noice but nothing that bothered. Helpful staff with nice extras, including foyer lounge with reading material and beverages. Will return next time.

Waves is so conveniently located in Byron Bay. You park your car in the secure underground car park and forget about it. The bed was king size and comfortable with extra blankets on hand. The marble bathroom was spectacular and the bath enormous with a separate shower. A pleasant addition would have been a bath robe to go with the... More

Really comfortable stay, love the free muffins and apples in the morning and the wine tasting on Friday and Saturday nights. Our room was really spacious and comfortable. The bath was really big too which was great in winter! Perfect location - close to the beach and all the shops. Would have been good to have free wifi - but... More

We were only here overnight, but the room was exactly what we needed, in a great location within the heart of Byron. Easy walk to cafes, over the road from the beach. The girl who served us was so accommodating and easy to deal with, we'll be back.

We enjoyed our 5 nights at waves , central location , great renovated bathroom and a nice touch the organic muffins and apples each day for breakfast , only down side is no pool and definitely request a room on the side - not on the front as those rooms are dark and opposite the backpackers , however the rooms...

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
