We were visiting Byron Bay for a friends wedding and chose Waves because of its location which is very central to everything. We arrived early and the reception staff kindly arranged for us to get into our room earlier. I was impressed with the warm muffins,tea and coffee offered on arrival and the assistance on checkin. This is where our... More

Ideally located - a short stroll to beach, cafes, shops, the peace & quiet appealed & the unexpected, complimentary light brekkie in the lobby - coffee,tea, juice, muffins & green apples - was most welcome.

Very close to beach and to town. There was noise in the area due to it's vicinity to everything but it didn't keep us awake. Rooms were very clean and tidy and made up daily. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed at this accommodation for 5 nights. We were received by an excellent desk clerk who was extremely helpful. The room and bed were very comfortable. The hotel is well located as its within easy walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants and walking tracks.

We stayed a waves hotel for 2 nights in April. The hotel is situated across from the beach and a short stroll to the shops and restaurants. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Would recommend if you are thinking about a stay in Byron Bay.

We stayed in an apartment managed by Waves a few doors away. The location right next to the beach and with the park in front is amazing. The apartment block is dated and whilst attempts have been made to update it more could be done especially in terms of simple things like maintaining paintwork.The price is reasonable and the space...

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel Is in a great spot, pretty much on the beach and 2 minutes from the main road. It is in a quiet spot away from all the loud backpackers. Very clean rooms and great value for money. Would definitely stay there again

Friendly and really close to the beach. Would recommend and we will go back. Lovely breakfast offering. Ensuite and room really clean and tidy. Could do with less complicated wifi though. Parking is good as secure and underground.
