We stayed for three nights in the seafarers room, next to the owners living room. The room is beautiful, comfortable and spacious. The bed is large and comfortable. We were not bothered by any noise, neither by the owner nor by other guests. Everybody seems to be well aware of the thin walls and the potential noise this can create....

The location is good, in the older part of Byron yet very close to everything , about 10 mins walk to the beach or town . easy parking if you have a car. We particularly like the...

From the reviews we were expecting more, we stayed for two nights & we found the room minimalistic and rather dark. There was nowhere to store our clothes; the bathroom was spacious but old. The bed was very comfortable & everything was clean. Arcadia House is well located in a quiet residential street and it's an easy level walk to...

Loved the gorgeous Queenslander house, our room was lovely and the bathroom and shower were great. The front verandah (with comfy cane furniture) is a perfect place for a wine and cheese as the sun is going down. It's a short walk to the beach, cafes and shops, or you can borrow the free bikes to cruise around town. Really...

100year old nice house with bikes for free. 7min away from the beach. Sit on the porch with a bottle of wine and watch the flyingfoxes getting some fruits from the palmtree. Everything was clean and nice old furnitures in the rooms.

We stayed in Arcadia for two nights in the room with the adjoining door to the owners accomodation mentioned by other visitors. This was not a problem and we didn't even notice it was there. Arcadia is well located and only a short walk to the beach and shops. It was well presented, clean and quiet, and the bed was...

The owner was lovely as was the room. However, the room had a door that was not shown in the pictures that is joined to the living area of the owner and her young family. The door was old and thin and unfortunately opened up to the owners kitchen and lounge area. They locked the door after I alerted them...

Stayed here recently while passing through and was very impressed. The house is tucked away in the back streets of Byron but within walking distance of the town. The room was old style but very beautifully decorated and very spacious indeed along with a huge ensuite and shower and spa in the room I had. Very good value for money...

Beautiful period guesthouse at Byron Bay. Relatively central location and courtesy bicycles available for use. Only downfall is the period home characteristic besides it's beauty. 'thin' wall and crackling floor - beautiful but don't block noise.

Stayed 2 nights in the Queen Azul Spa Room. Absolutely, the most beautiful accommodation I have ever stayed in. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was immaculate. Although close to the main part of town, the room was peaceful, quiet and super relaxing. Dianne was also lovely host. Would definitely recommend when staying in Byron.
