This was a great motel unit for a 4 night stay. Very roomy neat and clean. Close to all the towns attractions and you never need to use your car. Underground secure parking was great especially with a hire car which was uninsured. Only a couple of small complaints being the way the floor plan was that you could not... More

Stumbled upon this gem of a place in Byron Bay last weekend - the rooms are pretty standard (with kitchenette (stove included) and a large balcony), but the management are incredibly friendly and accommodating, the location is fantastic (2 min walk from the main road, 3 min walk to the beach), and the price was right! As long as you... More

As the other reviewers already wrote: The rooms are very clean and comfortable and - huge plus - self-contained (washing machine, kitchen, shower, toilet, etc.). Even if you are travelling alone you can buy your own food at the nearby markets (but don't expect the food to be cheap... nonetheless it's Australia). The balcony is useful for all Marlboro men/women.... More

Had a great stay at Byron Bay Side Central Motel. Close to the beach, cafes and shops, yet at the same time it still felt private. The room was clean and comfortable, and the private balcony was spacious and comfortable, just like the room iteself. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and we have every intention of staying their... More

Had a wonderful stay here, very close to shops and beach but still tucked away in a quieter street. Room was great and had everything you need in case you feel like a home-cooked meal! Will definitely be coming back and would recommend to anyone!

This Motel is ideally located near shops, markets, transport and the beach. It is clean, comfortable and good value for the money. The staff are friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the stay for 3 nights and two days from 17 to 19 September 2012. Full facilities for own cooking though being the solo traveller, I mostly ate outside. Good place to... More

Good Café downstairs if you don’t want to cook your own meals. Hairdressers, beauty shops & massage are located in the complex but... More

Byron Bayside Motel is a self-described budget motel. It is definitely not 4 star accommodation but certainly a good value in this over-priced town. Our unit (number 18) had one large main room with a double bed, bunk bed, couch, TV, DVD, bar fridge, microwave, 2-burner hotplate with small oven, kettle, toaster and a good selection of dishes and cutlery....

After spending $160/nt at a new hotel on the Gold Coast, coming to Byron Bayside was such a let down. $240/nt for a run down, dirty, noisy establishment wasn't a great end to our holiday. The only good thing about this motel is the location. From the words of my 7 year old "I don't like this bed mummy, it... More
