Very conveniently located. Check in was not as friendly as it could of been, room was very clean, no milk was provided, our toilet roll holder was broken and also our curtain when drawn did not cover the window on one side, Internet was very slow, It's the simple things that can make a stay memorable.

Hi Vickie Great to see you enjoyed our clean rooms and location. Appreciate your feedback on the other issues but wished you could have let us know at reception during your stay. These issues were only 10 second fixes, like a blown light bulb, we don't always know something may happen during your stay until housekeeping are cleaning your room... More

Top priorities when looking for a brief family break to Byron were proximity to the beaches and central shopping/eating areas, and naturally price. Wollongbar was the standout for us, particularly as we were able to secure a Family Suite which had a king in the main room and two singles in an adjoining bedroom. Two TVs too! The slightly cheaper... More

Hi Guys Thanks for the great review. We enjoy one of the best locations in the Bay as far as the beach and CBD are concerned. Most guests rarely move their cars after they have arrived. We remain competitively priced right through the year. Also we have a three bedroom apartment which is very popular with families and group bookings.... More

We stayed for two night (one of the days being Australia day). The motel is within walking distance to the town and beach.The motel rooms and bathrooms iare very clean and spacious.

I stayed here for 2 nights, I found the place to be well equipped and the owners were friendly and helpful. It's ideally located and has a little passage to the beach which is really great. The wifi is unreliable which was unfortunate as I needed to work. I'd definitely recommend it though!

Hi Jo Jo Thanks for your kind review, great to see you enjoyed our facilities, especially our private beach access. Apologise for the WiFi, we have upgraded our system but regretfully Byron's reception on a whole is not the best with high and low periods. Hope to see you again when your next in the Bay.

Pretty awesome place in Byronn Bay, the really "surfers Paradise" at Australias East Coast. Direct connection to the Beach (just 3min.). Very good and clean rooms. Really friendly and helpful staff. Nice pool. Nice BBQ. Near to the City but still quit at night. Pretty awesome place at the most eastern Point in Australia
