Tallow Beach Motel is a lovely place to stay when visiting Byron. Only 10 minutes drive away it is a world away from the traffic and noise of central Byron. The motel is located just across from a long open beach perfect for long walks, along with all the locals who live in the residential area around the motel. I also enjoyed wandering up to the bakery for morning coffee - again it felt very local with few tourists around. The motel is quiet and restful, with lovely gardens and a private, peaceful and well tended pool area. The rooms are very well appointed with everything you need, and more. I liked having a room with a kitchenette and a small living area. This is a traditional motel, drive up to the door style, and my only non positive comment might be that the rooms are a little dark as they do not have any outside area. (There is however a view through the windows to Bali style tropical gardens.) However the charm and relaxed nature of the place, along with the friendly service provided by the owner makes this a great place to stay. Highly recommended.
