“Stunning Byron - the perfect escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

Absolutely loved our stay in Byron. Dianne did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The room was spacious, and well appointed. Although there isn't brekkie provided, you are spoilt for choice with all the gorgeous cafes around town. The rooms are serviced, which is lovely so you don't have to worry about sand making its way into everything. The place has been renovated recently making it ultra comfy. When I go back to Byron, I'll be staying at Arcadia again :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the Seafarer's room. Perfect and spacious

This place is fantastic. Tasteful decor, within walking distance to the centre of byron, very helpful and friendly staff.

We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the balmy night under some leafy trees on the balcony.

The room had an airy, classy feel, with beautiful wooden beachy furniture. Our bathroom was also very cool.

Great decor, very clean - all around lovely with the beachy feeling. Very helpful as well with ideas around the area, which is everything we ended up doing so excellent recommendations!

Only two downers - walls were a bit too thin, felt like we had to be very quiet and also breakfast included would have been nice. Though there's some great brekkie options very close by so it all worked out well.

Really enjoyed our stay!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Arcadia, so peaceful and relaxing and in a great location in Byron Bay. Park your car and walk everywhere and take the advice of Diane in her recommendations for cafe's, restaurants and beaches.
Our room was clean, comfortable and decorated with a real beach holiday feel and with plenty of personal touches to make it homely too.
Byron Bay + Arcadia = perfect holiday :)

Perfect location with walking distance to the beach and town & lots of small hidden coffee places hidden in the surroundings..
Cottage newly redecorated, stylish. Great personal service from Di... The suggestions and outings organised by the hostess were perfect. It made the w-e away from the big smoke even more paradisiac..
Will definitely come back... Highly recommended!

Of all the places (hotels, apartments etc) my partner and I stayed traveling down the east coast this was by far my favourite place. Diane is a brilliant host and while we booked through booking.com and hadn't realised that the bathroom was seperate, Diane upgraded us at a really reasonable price to the turtle room. The bed is probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. There is something so unique about this house that makes you feel at home. The room and house is so so clean and comfortable. The use of the bikes was excellent. Only regret was not staying longer. Loved this house.

As a mature couple , we didn't want to be in the heart of chaos in Byron Bay and luckily found Arcadia House, a 100 year old restored guest house which is only 5 mins away from everything but is so peaceful and charming. We had the Beachcomber room which was lovely - fabulous double shower , freshly renovated, sofa for relaxing plus wifi . The room was light and opened onto the verandah which had wicker furniture begging to be used.
Comfy bed , aircon, and access to fridge , we couldn't have been more comfortable.
Loved the ambience of Arcadia House , and the access to town being so easy , either walking or by bike or car. We would love to return as it was well run by Dianne, clean and cozy, and felt like a home away from home!

Room Tip: Loved the Beachcomber room which opened directly onto the charming verandah and was light and airy.
