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. 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
