I love this little gem in the centre of Byron Bay, I have stayed here regularly when I travel north. Great Location, close to the centre of Byron without being noisy.. I love our trips up north an would not miss a stop over in Byron...I can recommend this little gem.

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. Our motel does offer a Continental breakfast however as stated to you with our staff, orders need to be placed the night before and not on the morning of your requirements. 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

Upon check in and check out received most helpful information on the area. Very friendly and welcoming. Rooms clean and comfortable. Closer to the beach and restaurant area. An atmosphere to come back to.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The motel is across the road to the beach and just along from shops and restaurants. There is a pool but the water was quite cold compared to the surf at this time of the year. The room was small but adequate. We were on the ground floor and we could park our... More

Property was 1 street back from beach and 2 streets back from main shopping and restaurants. Bed was comfortable and property was clean. Would have preferred a property closer to the action but that is not a representation of property. It is dated on the outside but rooms love ok like they have been refurbished. Receptionist was very friendly and... More

Very clean, nice rooms and close to the beach. Friendly people, nice (shallow) pool with loungers. Byron Bay is not a cheap place to stay, especially at weekends, so we were a bit miffed to find a $5/£2.50 charge per day per device for the Internet (and, being in the room furthest from reception, the signal was a bit patchy...

We booked this motel for a weekend away, and although quite basic it is clean and only a couple of blocks from the centre of town and one block from the beach. The bed is great, bathrooms clean and toiletries are supplied. The pool is only one metre deep by deep enough to cool off. All in all a pleasant... More

One of the rare places in Byron Bay where you can get one night's accommodation at a very reasonable price (during the peak season). The motel is centrally located and you can be in the town centre within a few minutes walk. The room was spacious and very clean. The reception staff very friendly and helpful.

A great little motel in Byron Bay!! Recently refurbished. Arrived a little earlier than the 2pm check in time, but I was able to check in early as my room was ready. Mary Jane at Reception was so friendly and ever so helpful (a lifesaver at times!). The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and had bedside lamps... More
