Right across the road from the main beach and in the main hub of Byron! So close to literally everything you will need! The rooms are super clean and the staff made it super enjoyable and easy for us! Would definitely stay there again if I went to Byron again. For the price it is really really worth it, definitely...

Well, We'd rather forget this address. The rooms are poorly isolated and during our stay (3 nights) some folks were yelling, hooting and bellowing at the top of their lungs until 02:00 in the morning in two nights. Never mind that there's a panel in each room explicitly prohibiting noisy activities after 8pm (or was it 10pm?). Anyway, no way... More

A clean and nice motel really close to the beach (and everything else). I don't remember what we payed, but I don't believe it was far too much - but more that a backpacker hostel. They too us in on very short notice in the middle og the peak season which was very good.

Great location - only about a 100m walk to the main street, and opposite the main beach. We parked and didn't use our car for the 5 days we were there. Room was clean and fresh feeling, and pillows were very comfy. The back gate (which you need a key to open so it's very secure) opens up onto a... More

This motel boasts a fantastic location right on Byron's main beach and high street. There is off road parking for every room and the rooms are spacious and fairly modern inside. What's more, the owners will quickly shut anyone up that's making noise at bedtime!! You can easily get to the lighthouse by car or take the footpath if you're... More

Quick stop over with a family suite for 5, plenty of room, very clean, comfortable beds. Super location right across beach and short walk to everything. Really hospitable and helpful managers. They lock up hotel gates later in the night which is a good idea. Managers gave us a good rundown on getting in and out after hours.

My husband and I arrived at the hotel at around 8.40pm after a trip down from Byron. We rang the night service bell for around 15 minutes and got no answer, we then tried to call the hotel but the line was busy. Eventually we knocked on a window and the manager came out. She was incredibly rude to us,... More

The Bay Motel on Bay Street Byron Bay has by far the best location to stay in Byron. Situated just across the road from the main beach hosts a clean and comfortable environment. Clean bathrooms and comfortable beds all with aircon right on the beach, what more could you want. On site parking and everything in town is with in... More
