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

The location was the draw card. It was so close to the beach and the main strip you couldn't ask for anything more perfect for a girls weekend! The rooms were very clean. Reception was friendly and easy.

I recently stayed at Waves in Byron Bay. I escaped my hectic life for a few days of relaxation, Waves gave me that and more. The location is perfect, coffee and muffin in the foyer for breakfast and even a glass of wine on a Friday night. I can't wait to go back and will always try and stay there.... More

It's a motel. But it's well located and no more exorbitant than the rest of town. Generally quiet and a bit 1999. Stayed here plenty of times. But is not cheap, you get what you pay for I guess. Needs some maintenance. But so does much of the area. It's a blend of hippie and yuppie.

My husband & I plus our 2 kids have just come back from a 2 night mini-break in Byron Bay. We booked a deluxe king room last minute which met our needs very well. The accommodation is just across the road from the main beach & a large park for the kids to play in. Staff were very friendly &... More

Hi Lara M We were thrilled to read your recent review. Its great to hear all the features you enjoyed about our property. We are very spoilt in Byron Bay to be so close to the beach and the centre of town, with all that it has to offer whilst still being extremely relaxing. As you mentioned 'you will be... More
