We stayed for two nights whilst touring the Byron Bay area. The Breakfree Eco Beach is not the easiest place to locate on arrival in Byron Bay but does provide decent, clean accommodation with well equipped rooms and friendly Reception staff. It is more like a motel in some respects and to be fair there is excellent, secure underground car... More

We stayed here for two very enjoyable nights but the Eco Beach struggles to find an identity for itself. It is not a hotel but had all the facilities (apart from a safe in the room) we needed for a two night stay, it is more than a Motel (secure underground car parking is excellent) and yet sees itself more...

On arrival the staff were very friendly and helpful. We found our studio room to be very clean and comfortable with a generously sized balcony. As the hotel is a short stroll from the town centre it was very easy to access the retaurants, shops and beach. Overall a very enjoyable stay.
