Waves is just what we needed for our night in Byron Bay. The room was clean, the bathroom, lux, and the complementary breakfast muffin and tea was a bonus. It was everything we needed. The receptionist was very helpful with advice about activities in the area and the proximity to the beach was fabulous for the teenagers. Couldn't ask for... More

Great location, close to beach & Byron town centre. Request a room that does not back onto Lawson Street, very noisy! Complimentary muffins, orange juice & Nespresso coffee in hotel lobby every morning. Their lobby had a large & lovely open lounge/dining room area that made you feel very at home. Had no problems popping out there still in my... More

If you book thinking you will have a view of the ocean, you will be disappointed as only 3 or 4 rooms have an ocean view. You may also be disappointed with the breakfast as it only consists of fruit juice, a piece of fruit, tea or coffee and a very sweet muffin.

Hi Recent Guest Thank you for taking the time to send us your review. I would like to point out some facts that may help in your assessment of the property though. We do not advertise that our rooms have ocean views, as only selected ones have a view, and therefore we do not state that. Also, our complimentary, as... More

The location is perfect - walking distance to the beach and all the good bars and restaurants. It is a very quiet building, it was completely booked when we stayed and it seemed as if nobody else was there. Rooms are neat and tidy. Overall happy with our stay and is good value for what you pay.

Room was great and the staff on reception were fantastic. It was a real pleasure. Very close to the beach, shops and restaurants are a short stroll away. Muffins were also tasty! Looking forward to coming back next year!

The lady on reception when we arrived was lovely. Relaxed, friendly and helpful (and between you and me, sneaky hot) The room was nice enough. Had a massive balcony that would great in the warmer weather. No complaints.

Arriving after hours on a week day can be somewhat problematic when checking in to a hotel. On this occasion I got lucky! I received an email 2 days before arriving which had very clear and concise details and directions... meaning I was in my room within minutes of arriving. The room had everything I could have needed and the... More

The place is good without being amazing. The best quality of it is the location which is right in the heart of Byron. I did also like the free muffins and coffee that was available in the mornings. Unfortunately, the wifi only worked at reception and didn't work in the room. When we notified the staff of this, they just... More

Choose this accommodation for the location and to be able to walk around town. However for the paid $320 a night, poor poor value. Room large with two sofas and weird "internal" bathroom, smelt of damp and airless. No communal pleasant outside area to sit in.. All ordinary
