In previous trips to Byron Bay, I stated at The Atlantic, which I love, but it was booked by the time I was planning this trip, so I booked at Hibiscus based on positive Trip Advisor reviews, hoping they would not lead me astray. I'm happy to say they were spot on. Hibiscus Motel is a great, low key spot.... More

We stayed here for 1 night only - last minute booking, and it was great!! Spotless, neat & tidy, everything you need for 1 night or even 2 nights, close to everything!! Staff were great, let us leave our car there after check out so we could go have breakfast. Would stay there again. Ideal for weddings as you usually... More

Small Motel very close to everything within walking distance. Very clean, comfy, quiet and Friendly. Lots of choices to eat very near by or walk a little further to the main street that's alive!! Great place to explore.

Great friendly service, very well located by just far enough from the hustle and bustle. Clean, well appointed and very well managed with convenient and free parking so that you can leave the car behind and explore Byron on foot. We will be back!

Friendly operators, clean and well appointed rooms, a short walk to the beach and dining. A parking space for each room.There's a bit of road noise early, but just pull a pillow over your head or head out early for a coffee. Can't beat the combination of value and welcome.

I stayed here for the night with my boyfriend recently. Its is budget but the room is very clean and comfy. It is just a short walk to the shops and beach behind. You can park right outside the room. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed for two nights during August. Room was clean, well priced for Byron and the was owner friendly and welcoming. Rooms are simple (it is a motel not hotel), have what you need for a comfortable stay. Didn't need all the extras as most of the time was spent out and about.
