The experience I had at Cape Byron Retreat was nothing like I have ever experienced. Amazing staff, scenery and food. I left feeling refreshed and relaxed. I could not fault my experience at all. Will definitely be back!

I just wish our stay was longer. Two night wasn't enough for us, I could very happily spend a week amongst the countryside, swinging in a hammock, listening to the wildlife. You are very well looked after, the room we had was great - outdoor space, very private, very peaceful. The breakfasts are excellent and delivered to you. Although only a mile or so from Byron town, you feels many miles away. Easy to get to and get back from! I would definitely recommend and will gladly stay again! PS: The spa is very good - top quality massages from professionals .

Nice place for a getaway. Really convenient location, a quick and easy drive to Byron Bay down a quiet road away from the traffic on the main roads in and out of Byron. The place was nice, on a beautiful property with great views. Going in the hot tub at night and watching the stars was great, even saw a shooting star.

Nice clean rooms, but attention is needed to the ceiling fans. kitchen is very small but works well. The bedrooms are not the same, so may have to flip a coin for the best bedroom as one has an ensuite and verandah, but the other does not. The Peacocks are friendly lol. They will eat from your hand and they look beautiful.
