Stayed here last weekend. A nice resort with clean and comfortable facilities. Good pool,spa and BBQ area, although wondering if the pool would be a bit small if visiting in summer. Spa is awesome. Lovely, helpful staff. Short walk to town and beach although it's a shame that beach access isn't a little closer- not too far though! Bed was... More

Stayed here in June 2014 with my 7mth girl for two nights. The staff were helpful in assisting a mum travelling on her own and the portacot was in the room upon arrival with cute brand-new linen. Tip: if booking a portacot please ask for it to be set up prior to arrival. As a frazzled mum desperate for baby... More

Thanks so much for sharing your experience at BreakFree Eco Beach with others. The room you were in was on the ground floor, close to the lift and with easy access to the street and basement parking which we thought would be suitable to your requirements.

The hotel staff are friendly with well presented rooms. The location is great with only a five minute walk to the town centre or beach. The only complaint would be the double entryway into the room making it difficult to get your baggage in and when the other hotel guests go into their room it is very loud and sounds... More

Thanks for your comments and it is great to hear that you appreciated the friendliness of our team, BreakFree Eco Beach's location and the room presentation. Being dual keyed apartments, there are a couple of doors to manouvre and some units have better access than others. Being dual keyed gives guests the choice of booking and paying for a studio...

Great Location walking distance to everything Byron has to offer. Staff were very friendly and customer focused which was great. Room was very clean, comfortable and easily accessable. Even with current roof restoration taking place there was absolutely NO impact on our stay. Would highly recommend for a weekend away.

It's great to hear that you enjoyed your weekend away at BreakFree Eco Beach and that our current roof works did not affect your stay. Byron Bay's weather at the moment is superb, you would think it was spring. The whale watching & dolphin sightings have everyone excited and we are a great base from which to explore everything Byron... More

The Hotel has very friendly staff with clean and well stocked rooms, pool, spa & gym - great value - but the best thing about this hotel is the location, walking distance to centre of Byron and beach. Will definitely be booking to come back thanks guys for a great weekend!

It's great to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us and the facilities at BreakFree Eco Beach. The pool, spa and BBQ area are located in the centre of the resort for easy access for all guests and offers a sunny spot out of the wind most days.

We have stayed in many 4 star establishments and Breakfree Eco Beach in terms of facilities and functionality sits in the middle when considering the price. Byron is never the most competitive place to stay and is quite expensive for accommodation. In that respect, Eco Beach was well priced for the area (although there was a sale when we stayed.)...

Your comments are appreciated and will help us to provide a better service for future guests. I'm not sure which room you stayed in but for reference 12B is a one bedroom and 12A is a studio. The furniture in the lounge/dining room is all new, having only been installed 3 months ago. The majority of our rooms also have... More

Great resort for your Byron getaway. Front of house staff where super friendly, attentive and really chilled out. The room was clean and enough for a weekend away. Stones throw to the beach and an easy stroll to get amongst the Byron energy. I`ll definitely be back!

This was our first stay in Byron Bay and at this resort. Great location - only 5 minute walk into town and close to beach (my husband is a surfer and was able to walk to beach with board). Apartment was clean and good value. Unfortunately bed was not fantastic and could do with an upgrade. There is a laundry... More

First time to this Resort. Awesome location, rooms were clean and staff are friendly. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was adequate. Good value for money.
