“Great location”
Reviewed March 8, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed at the Wreck. The apartment is in a fantastic location, we parked the car and walked everywhere. The Beach Hotel is next door and Main Beach directly in front. Restaurants, cafes and other shops are closely located. The apartment was neat, tidy and clean. It did smell musty so we bought a candle to try and cover the smell. The balcony was a highlight with the beautiful views to sit and watch the beach and passers by while having a drink and nibbles each afternoon. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment contained all the basic essentials. The noise was a big issue. The pub was loud but not unbearable if you have earplugs, but the garbage trucks at 5am outside the bedroom window every morning, closely followed by pedestrian traffic and people talking was too much. Security wise, the driveway gate was never closed. Would we stay there again? No - due to the noise.

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   No.

Thank you Jacqui for your feedback. Yes this apartment is right in the heart of Byron Bay and does come with all of the aspects that 'city life' entails, however we were sorry to hear that it was an issue for your stay. We were glad to hear that the apartment was up to your expectation and that the wonderful view on the balcony was a highlight during your stay.
We have many more amazing places for you to stay that will be more central yet quieter.
If we can be of further assistance for your next trip we would be delighted to look after you.

Great apartment in premier spot in Byron Bay. Watch the waves roll in from the balcony and listen to the music from the pub across the road.
Didn't bother us but is quite noisy as it is directly across the road from the pub.
Great restaurants and cafes at the doorstep.

“Location Location Plus - But, Noisy....”
Reviewed October 31, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Location

Fantastic. Right across the road from the Main Beach and in amongst all the Cafes, Restaurants, Pubs. The lot.

Cleanliness

Extremely clean and had everything here which was a plus such as dishwasher tablets, washing machine liquids, washing sponges etc.

Private Parking

Excellent and secure

Balcony overlooking the Beach

Beds

Extremely comfortable.

We stayed in "The Pass".

Only negative for the stay is the NOISE from the Beach Hotel right across the road.

I'm not a party pooper but the noise on Sunday night, Monday night went right up to Midnight. The Bass and the crowd was LOUD.

Internet

We had problems with the Internet provided so we ended up using our Mobile instead which was a bummer.

Would I stay here agin, sorry to say, no. Only because of the Noise. It's perfect for young ones who do not mind the noise but if you have kids, look elsewhere.

“Great location, very clean, car park...but bring earplugs - they are a must.”
Reviewed January 12, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Let's get to the chase - would I return to Quicksilver Apartments?
The Answer is Yes, however would triple check I had my earplugs with me.

The location is fantastic, the apartment was clean, tidy and modern and the balcony overlooking the car park to the beach was a regular feature every night for drinks. We were in the Wreak (one further away from the Beach Hotel). The other apartment (The Pass) has the better view, however assume noise from the hotel would be worst than ours.

The Good:
- Location
- Open/clean/airy
- Great balcony for watching the world go by, drinks and dinner
- Dishwasher/Dryer and Washing Machine
- Right in the middle of the action
- Carpark
- Two rooms
- Shower in car park when returning from beach

The Bad:
- Stairs if you have young kids
- Small kitchen. NOTE: would be issue if you ate in a lot
- Bathroom slippery after shower due to water escaping

The Ugly:
- We knew it would be loud, but the noise from the pub is not pleasant if you are early person
- No double-glazed Windows

Like I mentioned, would return but with earplugs. If you are a late person, go out late or don't have kids, you probably won't care. It wasn't a deal breaker, but be warned.

Still a great location and glad we stayed.

“Super convenient location with great views, but really noisy!”

Loved the location and how everything was literally at our doorstep, also loved the views and the laid-back feel to the apartment, but the noise levels totally let it down :(

Street noise at night and the music from the Beach Hotel was ridiculously loud (enough to rattle bedroom doors) We chose the apartment to the back called 'The Wreck' on purpose as we kind of figured the first apartment would cop most of the noise, but this wasn't the case and unfortunately once the music/night life died down a bit around 1am people would congregate under our bedroom window and around under the Quiksilver store each night with bongo's/guitars/singing/talking etc till around 3-4am in the morning....so not much sleep to be had!! Then of course it was car-park skateboarding with smashing of glass bottles and lingering in the apartment car-park as the security gate was broken which mean't it was open day and night.

It's all good if you book the apartment to be in the center of all the action, particularly the night life and Beach Hotel etc on a Fri/Sat/Sun night, but if you book it for a chilled out, go out to dinner & retreat back to your apartment kind of thing or even family holiday...then just be aware of noise.

Other thing we found frustrating was the after hours help/assistance. They didn't call back when they said they would or if the next person came on shift the information didn't seemed to be passed on and we had to followed them up a few times. For example our internet wasn't working and it took 2.5 days for it to be sorted, the bedding was wrong - twin singles instead a king bed as booked and requested and it took 1 day/night to sort it as the cleaner didn't turn up twice when they said.

These things aside it is a great apartment, clean/tidy and had everything thing we needed in it.

“Comfortable and well positioned - but the noise is an issue if you're a light sleeper”
Reviewed May 17, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed on Business in May 2015, and booked through Byron Holiday Rentals. The property is well positioned at the top of Jonson Street, which is great if you want to be in the centre of town. An easy walk to the beach and plenty of great restaurants.

A great quality properly that is modern and well furnished, and very comfortable. There is a small kitchen (not that we used it) with utensils and crockery - all you need if you want to cook some basic meals.

We stayed at 'The Pass' which is directly across the road from the Beach Hotel. The noise is clearly audible from the bedroom and was pretty annoying. If you're a light sleeper, you will struggle. The pub noise went til about Midnight on Wednesday and Thursday - I would hate to stay here on a weekend.

If you can, I'd recommend 'The Wreck' which is an identical apartment next door, at least that would put a bit more distance between you and the pub.

Otherwise, a great spot particularly out on the balcony!
