My husband and I stayed for 4 nights. Sharon (manager) was lovely and hospitable. The room, although a studio, was a good size for the two of us and the king bed was comfortable. There was also a large balcony. Walking distance to everything so you can leave your car in the secure undercover car park. We will definitely stay... More

The room we had was very clean and tidy, the location was great, only half a kilometer to the town center. The staff were very friendly and helpful. If you don`t like traffic noise then ask not to stay in room 14B, the road on the way in is very busy. Overall we had a great stay and would recommend... More

Your comments are appreciated and it is good to hear you enjoyed your stay at BreakFree Eco Beach. Your advice on road noise is helpful and although street front, unit 14A & 14Bs balconies offer a sunny aspect overlooking the pool which is a desired location through winter. Those used to road noise do not find this an issue and... More

Upon arrival with my daughter, both weary after a long day's travel from the Riverina for son's wedding, it was discovered the King bed had not been 'unzipped' to accommodate two singles. Not a problem for management (they were unaware of special conditions at time of booking). Even though cleaning staff had left for the day, after a short stroll... More

We stayed here for a wedding in Byron recently. Happy with size of room and the cleanliness, comfortable bed, was a little disappointed that we weren't given a balcony as promised but otherwise great location and reasonable price.

Your comments are appreciated. Many couples recommend us to their wedding guests as we are located close to the town and beaches, as well as being across the road to the bus stop. This is very convenient for those weddings being held in the hinterland and who have organised the Magic Bus to pick up their guests and take them... More

We really enjoyed our stay there! The units were really nice and clean. It's perfectly located at 5 min by walk to Byron Bay downtown and 5-10 min, walking time, of the beach. Sharon was just awesome. She gave us nice advices on what to do in the surrounding and was always glad to help!
