The room was fantastic so close to everything the yard was perfect for our son to play in. Staff were very helpful and polite. We would have stayed another night if it wasn't booked out. Thank you for having us we will definitely be staying with you again next time we come to Byron Bay.

Poorly maintained ageing premises. They provide free underground parking but unless you drive a 4WD you won't be able to get into it without destroying your car. Payed $100 per night extra for the "BBQ and water feature" BBQ was left filthy and water feature was not working. Told reception about BBQ and waited almost 2 hours for it to... More

We stayed in one of the penthouses for 3 nights. The room was spacious and light filled but able to be closed up and darkened for kids to nap through the day. Having a washing machine and dryer there was very handy. Room was clean, huge corner bath with nice bathroom products. The kids loved all the space up on... More

Our 2 night stay was a joy helped by having this B&B hotel in a perfect, quiet location but handy for shops & beach & it's own private garage parking. Bathroom is superb and the bed & room comfortable. The staff are personable and really helpful. They supply muffins, coffee & juice for breakfast in the lobby but plenty of... More

Big shower,big bath,nice products.Close to the beach,and we loved the "clooney" coffee machine and fresh muffins each morning. Very quiet.and blackout curtains for sleeping in!

Waves is in an excellent location being close to the beach, shops and restaurants. But it was the customer service that really impressed. The staff were friendly, efficient and offered suggestions about where to eat in Byron. The little things also made The stay at Waves special.

Loved how close this hotel was to everything as well as opulent bathroom. I will say that the design elements of the bathrooms didn't seem to fit the beachy feel of the rest of the room/hotel but was lovely nonetheless. Central, affordable and friendly staff.

Our two nights went quickly but weather was perfect so we were out most of the time. The location is a very easy walk to the beach, shops, restaurants and cafes etc. Room was very clean and comfortable but no balcony so nowhere to sit outside. The staff were very friendly and the complementary breakfast of fruit/muffin/coffee is a great... More

Really nice bathroom, rest of room is fine. Let down firstly by the price. Its a little on the expensive for what it is. And also that they charged $120 for carpet cleaning for having a couple of beers that weren't from the mini bar. Leaves a pretty sour taste in the mouth.

Thank you for your review regarding your stay with us in April 2014. We take all comments very seriously as we pride ourselves on both our service and cleanliness.
