Just south of Byron Bay this well priced motel is comfortable, clean and a hop, skip and a jump from the beach. There is also a convenience shop, a bakery and pub around the corner. Nice place to stay for a quiet get away from the hustle and bustle. The beds are comfortable. This is the second time we have... More

Tallow Beach motel is lovely in winter - walking along the beach to Broken Head we saw dolphins swimming in the waves. The motel is very friendly and welcoming with a lovely garden, blue pool and buddhas to greet you, a lovely escape from the city.

A quiet part of Byron precincts. No glitz & glamour just relaxing. Enjoyed cooking my own meals & loved the peaceful sounds of ocean & palm leaves. The windows with slatted glass reminded me of my childhood. The sunroom was indeed very sunny.

Very pleasant 5 days. Sue and Rosemary welcoming. Beach is a minute's walk away and expansive. Lovely sunroom and Tallow suite has good kitchen and large lounge. No steps and secluded. Can park right outside door.

Consisently very good. Clean, comfortable, convenient and affordable. Friendy and welcoming staff. 100 metres to the beach. Stayed there a number of times previously and will stay again. Excellent all round value for money.

The room was in great condition, location is fantastic. In a quiet neighbourhood, yet still close to town. Would I recommend this motel? Yes, everything mentioned on their website is accurate. I never got to the pool since the beach was right along a short path.

From the moment I arrived and met my hostess- Rosemary- I felt at home. The gardens are beautiful, You have your own courtyard. There are gorgeous little touches everywhere that make it so pretty. Lovely private pool...The beach was just over the road. Also the shops were at very close proximity to "home"

We were fully satisfied with the two nights we stayed at the Tallow Beach Motel. The hotel is not in Byron, but a few miles outside which is great. You find quietness and can hear the ocean waves. To get to a beautiful beach (also partially open for dogs) you have just to cross a side road and walk for... More
