We stayed here for one night on 2 different occasions. Two adults and 2 children stayed in a suite with one king bed and 2 singles. The room was spacious and had all of the amenities including a mini bar fridge, hair dryer and breakfast pack for a fee. The front desk gave us free cake upon arrival and recipes... More

Last minute booking due to mix up at our other hotel. Beautiful location, just back from the beach. Large comfortable rooms. Reception staff was very helpful, we were late to check out as my partner was ill, they were very accommodating.

We booked for a quick night away and picked up a great price. We thought it would be a basic property but there is so much more! A homely feel, lovely clean renovated rooms, with lawns that welcome and encourage families to play and relax with their cup of tea. Stretching out to the beach , listen to the sounds... More

This hotel is scheduled to be torn down in the near future, which explains its tired and outdated look. Service and overall quality of the property is mediocre at best. Our unit backed on to steet and was noisy. Also, walls were paper thin.We certainly will not be returning.

Mary A, Manager at Friday on the Beach, responded to this review

Yes, we are going to be undergoing a major development on the site but the property certainly isn't run down or tired. We pride ourselves on the state of our four star property with up to date fittings and furnishings. Our amenities are top of the range and we offer professional personalised service with extras like "home made"cake on arrival.... More

Rooms are really nice. The location is perfect, the beach is basically next to the garden. We could leave our car at the parking and stay in the garden also after checkout. I loved this place and only regret we couldn't stay longer.

I stayed in this hotel for three nights after checking out from another property in byron bay which was very noisy and close to the street. Friday on the beach was perfect, my room in the upper floor was quiet with ocean view. Service was very good. The place seems to be mainly for couple and travelers wanting to relax... More

We stayed here last week for 3 nights and had the best short break in a very long time. Loved everything about "Fridays" first of all the staff so friendly and helpful, Mary & Sandy were amazing especially with recommendations on where to eat, location and what type of restaurants etc (was just like having a chat with a friend)...

We stayed here for two nights and were excited to have found the place during a busy week. With a market on doorstep the next day and beachfront location the hotel seemed good choice. This changed after we decided to stay an extra night. We were offered a room next door for 240 dollars and accepted this. The next day... More

I loved it here. The location was fabulous, the rooms spacious clean and modern. We even got some freshly baked cake on arrival :-) . There was free wifi too. We didn't have much interaction with the staff but any that I did have was very pleasant. I would definitely stay here again..
