I cannot believe that in this day and age of 'supply an demand' that motels and hotels cannot provide a decent WiFi service. The room was fine but unfortunately the weather wasn't so we decided to update our contacts with the UK as we are currently travelling round Australia for 5 weeks and each day we let our family know...

This Motel was a beautifully appointed motel. The hosts were happy, friendly and very helpful with bookings and local information.The room was spacious and decor was beachy and cool. A microwave and toaster was supplied in the room as were kettle and crockery. You could be as self contained as you wanted. But the local cafes and shops where less... More

I went with a handful of friends all in our 20s. We wanted something a step above the hostiles that still wasn't too pricey and Wollongbar was PERFECT! The staff was beyond amazing. So helpful and nice! Everything they had was for us if we wanted from games to beach towels. We also used the barbecue facilities around the pool... More

The rooms are basic but clean and spacious with very good facilities. The couple who manage the motel were very friendly and accommodating. The pool was lovely and there is a BBQ area free to use for guests. There are shops and restaurants within walking distance, as is the beach. A lovely little stopover!

Perfect location I have spent only one night there. It has perfect location, few minutes walk from Byron Bay center. Room has every thing you need for good sleep and they are clean. Very nice and friendly check-in. The only disadvantage was noise from the street in the morning, so you should get room further form the street. Generally great... More

We stayed at the Wollongbar overnight recently and were delighted with the experience. For a value hotel (3 star), this property is in excellent condition and very well run. Friendly check-in, large clean room with balcony, and direct access to the beach! The motel is a five minute walk from the main shopping / eating area in Byron so location... More

Unbeatable location and very clean but units and fittings are are old in style For the price I thought it would be modern but this is Byron Bay high season so maybe that's how it is. Managers are working on modernising. Just stayed one night.

Hi Kerry Appreciate your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay, regretfully in regards to pricing we are in peak season but we remain competitively priced right through the year. Pleased you liked our recent room and pool/ BBQ area upgrades. As discussed further upgrades to rooms are in the pipeline. More

My family and I stopped at Byron for four days after being in surfers for two weeks. The Wollongbar motel was great. Everything we needed, private beach access, swimming pool, very polite staff. Only thing would be kitchen could do with upgrade, but apart from that we will definitely return.
