Wonderful location, inclusions, and best price in town for penthouse no 2 book early and ensure a wonderful oversize apartment. This is a nicely laid out floor plan with all amenities and with 2 adults and 1 child you will enjoy - we hosted the pre wedding grooms men and a wonderful venue to get prepared from.....

the location of this hotel was perfect as it was a short walk away from the main beach and a five minute walk from the main shopping/restaurant stretch. My only gripe is that they don't automatically offer free wifi but only do when you like their Facebook page. Which is fine but I just don't feel like I should be... More

My wife and I go to Byron Bay as much as we can and when we do we like to try different accommodation every time, but upon staying at The Waves the last time we went to Byron Bay might have changed the way we look at accommodation in Byron in the future. The Waves motel is so close to... More

Waves on Byron Bay is a beautifully styled resort, located centrally to Byron Bay's town centre with less than a 2min walk to the beach. The rooms are huge, generously appointed, and presented and cleaned immaculately. Complimentary tea, coffee, juice, muffins and fresh fruit was provided in the lobby each morning - a lovely touch I have rarely experienced within... More

This was my second stay at Waves and again it did not disappoint. The location of this accommodation is perfect. Its a 30 second walk to the beach and a 5 minute scenic walk into the heart of the hustle and bustle. The staff at Waves are lovely and were very helpful with my requests of dining choices in the...

We had an amazing time in the 3 days we were there. Accommodation was lovely and right in the centre of the action. It was clean and staff were very friendly. Only one complaint - there was only foxtel and only about 4 channels on tv (not worth watching) but then again who comes to watch tv on there weekend... More

Waves is the perfect location in Byron, 30 seconds from the main beach and a 2 min, safe walk to the main street and beach hotel. Being just behind the main street means the rooms are nice and quite. Large, well kept rooms, with good furniture and outdoor space. Our room had a large, sun-filled courtyard. The only downside was... More

I have stayed here twice in the last two weeks, underground security car parking which is really handy, nice modern clean rooms with modern bathrooms, well stocked mini bar, quiet place I slept fine, friendly staff. User controlled air conditioning. Elevator from the car park to your room door so no lugging your luggage up flights of stairs. Can't think... More

Had another EXCELLENT stay at Waves, Byron Bay. From making the reservation, to arrival, we cannot fault the place. Great location (you can hear the waves you are so close to the beach) and staff are as friendly and helpful as can be. Huey provided some waves, its only a couple minutes walk North to Shipwrecks or South to the... More
