Byron Bay Side Central Motel
Ranked #30 of 32 Hotels in Byron Bay
Reviewed March 1, 2013

It was a good decision to stay at this motel. We felt very welcomed because of the really friendly hospitality. The appartements are nice and have everything you need for a comfortable holiday, even for three weeks. The location is very central to the main beach aswell as to the shops and markets. Although it´s located very central, it´s not a party-motel, so you can sleep quielty. Next to the motel is the "Heart & Halo Bar" a lovely place with awesome organic ayurveda food and excellent coffee. Next time we will certainly stay at this motel again and we´re looking forward to see these nice people again.

Room Tip: Room 17 is the best room with a really nice balcony

I got exactly what I asked for at this hotel. It was great value complete with washer and dryer and all basic self catering needs. I had no problem in my wheelchair and the room was clean, cool and well organised. I would recommend this to any wheelchair user and their friends , family. The staff were helpful and pleasant and the secured parking was a bonus. It's a top location too.

Hi there

Well this is my first time doing this,it's 12.20am,so I guess that's a good enough reason. I have stayed in this motel twice now,the first time I stumbled upon it,and got it I think last minute for $120 a night for just myself 2 years ago. I liked it so much I went back and took my mate and am happy to report,I'm even happier the second time. They mixed up the booking though which we were unhappy about,but the lady quickly fixed it and sorted it out and even gave us a discount for the mix up. They are happy ,friendly,reasonbly priced for Byron and in the heart of everything with free wifi,car parking and all on your doorstep, and clean and basic=perfect.....

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony,don't get a room without one if you can help it. Air con is good if yo...

Pro's; Price, Good location as only a few minutes walk to shops, restaurants, beach. Big balcony with table, chairs, drying rack. Washing machine and dryer in bathroom. Well equipped kitchen. Security parking.
Con's: Extremely hot in summer if unit is west facing. Overhead fan only for cooling. Very basic bathroom with nowhere to place toiletries, except laundry sink. No pool. No dining table inside. No change of linen for 3 days which was O.K. for us but same applied to towels. Bring your own toilet paper in case the supplied quarter of a roll runs out and find a bin down town to place your rubbish in if you get sick of it piling up in the apartment. Noise carries very well.

Ideally situated close to every thing. Rooms have wifi, kitchen, clothes drier and washing machine. Staff are friendly and there is undercover secure parking. The rooms have a large balcony to have a drink in the evening, Not a great out look, but pleasant enough. Great value compared to other venues in town. The only down side would be lack of air conditioning, although room has a ceiling fan.

2 things I forgot to mention in my previous comment:
1. With no air conditioning in the afternoon is really to hot to stay in the room or on the balcony as it is direct at sunlight.
2. Since I was leaving on a late afternoon flight I asked for a late check out: 20 aud for 2 more hours (so check out at noon), since the hotel wasnt full I would have appreciated to stay a little longer than that!
