From checking to departure, the one member of staff I saw was helpful but not that friendly. Her attitude was slightly hostile and felt I was interrupting her day each time I visited reception. A genuine smile would of soften thinks all round. As for the room I stayed in, it was clean and tidy, but felt that the bathroom... More

What this accommodation lacks in wow-factor, it makes up for in cleanliness, location and wonderful friendly service. The pool is a bonus and, like the rest of the accommodation, was crystal clean. We were in the most basic room but it was as spacious as most hotel rooms I've stayed in and the linen felt like I was in a... More

Spent two nights here, very neat and clean. Staff extremely helpful assisting with restaurant selections. Has been renovated so very comfortable, with good beds and linen. Walking distance to the beach, the shops and many restaurants. Good value for money.

This place is not fancy but its clean, comfortable, reasonably priced and excellent location. Hundreds of meters from town makes it far enough away to be quiet but minutes to bars, restaurants, etc. And most importantly its literally 2 mins from the sand at main beach. This trip I saw multiple pods of whales in the bay spraying and breaching.... More

It is a typical motel next to one of the main roads through Byron Bay. The room was clean and walking distance to beach & city center. You can hear the traffic. No restaurant etc available. For sleeping in Byron it is a good option.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay. It may be that you stayed on a Tuesday evening, in which case the restaurant is closed. Basiloco operates 6 days a week, of an evening. We hope you can visit again another time so you can enjoy their culinary delights and the convenience... More

I stayed here on business and found this hotel average. Rooms were clean and acceptable standard. If you don't like stairs note there is no elevator so ask for lower level if you have bags or are a little infirmed. Most annoying was that this motel has no food offering. Really annoying when you cant get breakfast. There is a... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment.

The restaurant attached to the motel opens each evening for meals excepting Tuesdays - it does not offer breakfast but less... More

Stayed one night - the location is perfect, right in the heart of Byron & within walking distance to the main beach, and lots of bars & restaurants. Also close to the start of the Lighthouse walk, which is absolutely spectacular. Parking was a bonus as it can be difficult to find a park on the street during busier times.... More
