Lovely owners. Great wifi. Decent location. 5 min walk to beach. 10 min walk (max) to main town area. Stayed in a two bed apartment that had everything you needed. Parking outside if you wanted. Genuinely couldn't fault the place except for the odd bug in the place. Didn't have AirCon although whilst we stayed we didn't need it anyway.

My friend and I come every year to baystay b&b for a week away from Sydney. We like the location because its only a 5 min walk to centre Byron/beach but a quiet area where you can still hear the ocean at night. John and his wife are fantastic and make life easy when you are there. We usually eat... More

We were very thankfully (as a couple of travelling mates) that at last minute (well a couple of days before) this place accommodated us on Valentines Day for one night.

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We always react to guest problems asap and would have appreciated the opportunity to do so in your case. A couple of points to clarify from your comments: town is 400 metres from our house and takes about 6 minutes to walk to the main street,... More

When we arrived the owners were not here (and we didn't see them at all during our stay) and nobody to welcome us. We had the badly surprise to find other people in our studio so they had to move at 9pm in an other room. But the studio was dirty (because they already used It for two days) so... More

Hey things do go wrong sometimes and in the 20 years I have run this guesthouse the odd thing has gone wrong and I have fixed it. In these peoples' case they had a run of bad luck.

The setting is fantastic and the location is also amazing. It was such a shame that the owners were away and left their son in charge. The door bell was broken, we had to find out own room with a key and note stuck in the door. Turns out they had stuffed up the rooms and we were in the... More

Thank you for your feedback. It is always useful whether positive or negative. The sad thing with your feedback is that you failed to mention that you were told before you booked that I would not be there and given a special price. You were also told that you would be staying in our lovely Garden Studio which is a... More

Run by friendly and helpful proprietors, John and Janet, this is a little gem in Byron Bay. Comparatively affordable, and located 5 minutes walk from the shops, restaurants and pubs of town, this bed and breakfast offers cosy and clean rooms. Ask John or Jane about local sights off the beaten track and definitely try the home-made bread for breakfast!

Just spent two nights here with a friend on a brief mid-week trip away from the Gold Coast. Was very impressed with what we paid for. Stayed in the spa room.

The location, accommodation, food and hospitality were all great. Many of the B&Bs in Byron don't offer breakfast - but Baystay is a wonderful exception. It is really close to town, but without the noise of being right in the centre. We really enjoyed our stay - and will definately return!
