“B&B meets Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

Small and quiet like a good B&B but with the character and attention to detail of a boutique hotel. Warm and welcoming atmosphere, antique furnishings, and a good assortment of breakfast choices. Would definitely stay here again.

Hi all, I was torn between writing a review so everyone could enjoy this secret beautiful B&B and supporting it, and keeping the secret to myself because we loved it so much. If you are looking for the perfect weekend Getaway that isn't going to rip your pockets out and make you feel guilty BUT makes you feel so happy and that you are in a beautiful place and you really are on holiday then Burns at Byron is the place for you. It is a three bedroom guest house / B&B. Hillary was ever so accommodating and friendly. We stayed in the Komono room which was lovely as are all the rooms styled beautifully in a Country rustic chic meets Bali kind of style. There is a stunning shared bathroom which Id love to be my own the way it is styled and kept so clean. You share it with only one other room and there is another toilet also. If you are in the master bedroom you get an ensuite. Breakfast is prepared for you in the morning and awaits whenever you choose to get up. Fruit salad, muesli, juice and breads and muffins. You can truly make yourself at home on the deck relaxing in the garden or having an outdoor candlelit bath or shower. You can make a pot of tea or coffee whenever you like. It truly is a beautiful hideaway place and in walking distance of all the bars, shops and beaches. Burns is the most charming and best place delivering fantastic value I have stayed in and I have been fortunate to travel a lot. It is hard to beat the serenity and value it delivers in Australia where every room costs $90 or more. We were so happy here and delighted to have discovered it and feel fortunate to have enjoyed it.

Room Tip: THere are only 3 and you'll enjoy every one. If you really can't stand the thought of sharin...

The house of this B&B has 3 rooms to offer, of which one has its own bathroom and the other 2 rooms share one bathroom (which is basically down the end of the entrance corridor and easy to reach). The interior of the B&B was lovely and well designed.
The garden in the backyard was very cosy and looked well maintained.

The room had a comfortable bed and a TV with included DVD (Latest DVD movies have been offered by the owner).

There was only one thing, that dropped the points of my rating. The room, we've stayed in was too dusty. You could see quite a dust layer on the wooden blinds. Also there have been several spider net parts on the ceilings.
I am an allergic person, which made my 2 night stay quite uncomfortable (running nose at all times). I thought it must have been some trees or flowers first, until I have discovered the dust layers. Also the room has 2 carpets which might have been dusty as well and supported my allergy (but this is just a guess).

The breakfast was average with cereals, jams and a fruit salad to chose from.
Coffee and tea facilities have been provided.

Overall, this B&B is a great escape and I guess we have just checked in quite unexpected, which could be the reason for the dust on the blinds.
