What was a nice looking motel from the road and a good looking clean reception area, we soon found out this was not so. Manager Craig was very friendly.but unfortunately it is as far as it goes. From the front door right through the room was disgustingly dirty. I wonder who cleans the rooms as when we left around 10am... More

We stayed in a family room for 3 nights, which was spacious, kids bedroom had ample room for 2 children although my son found the bed doonas amusing being an older boy. The bathroom was a decent size. I enjoyed having my morning cuppa on the balcony. A few minutes walk into Byron Bay and a pathway to the beach... More

My partner has stayed many times and we spent 5 days over the school holidays. The price is very, very reasonable for a nice motel so close to the centre of town, plus one with beach-side access. Staff were very helpful. We were very happy with our stay here - we will be back!

We stayed a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Rooms are a good size with the bathroom being very large. There is a great pool and barbeque area with a large covered area. Only a short five minutes walk to town. At the back of the property is a gate that gives you direct access to the beach. We used this... More

We spent 3 nights at the Wollongbar for the Byron Bluesfest. Great location, only a few minutes stroll into the main shopping area, and a gate at the back of the property leading directly onto the beautiful Belongil beach, but very quiet. Rooms are spacious, the 2nd level ones have balconies looking over the swimming pool (and car park). The... More

Located close to the beach - just across old railway tracks and some bushes. With a special back gate, you don't even need to walk on streets - straight to the beach! And it's close to the town centre. This is best if you're looking for some quiet time after returning from dinner and/or drinks. The rooms aren't as new/shiny... More

The motel was presented beautifully - just like it's photos. It is a very pleasant short walk to the heart of Byron. The family room was very spacious and well presented. Side tables and bed moved easily/were on wheels (which helped). We loved the security door because the glass door could be wide open and we were secure. And above... More

My work colleague and I always stay here when we come to Byron which is generally once a year. Craig and his staff have always looked after us and been very friendly. The rooms are basic but clean and have everything we need. The location is ideal between the beach and the cbd which is handy after a nice dinner... More
