Byron Bay Side Central Motel
Ranked #30 of 32 Hotels in Byron Bay
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We stayed at the Bayside Central for a couple of nights on our way up the east coast. The motel lived up to our expectations with excellent laundry and catering facilities. It was ideally placed for all the local amenities yet it was located in a quiet side street with little traffic.

The apartment was serviced daily and was very clean and spacious. WiFi is provided free of charge, with no restriction on the number of devices. Parking is provided, underground, but care is needed when leaving as you may `bottom out' your car!

This is a home away from home. Having stayed here regularly for nearly 20 years, I always look forward to staying here. Peter, Marianne and Cameron do whatever they can to make your stay the best it can be. The apartments are ideally located in Byron Bay (you can put your car away during your stay), comfortable and with stylish recent improvements. The tariff is a bargain for Byron and now that there is no overnight parking permitted on the street side, the rooms are very quiet.

Room Tip: I always ask for Room 17. It is spacious, bright with a sunny verandah, has air con and is well-appo...

I spent 4 nights here in September and found the whole experience very relaxing. The rooms are not super modern in decor but they are clean and have all the facilities and utensils you'll need. The staff were so friendly and helpful which also added to the experience. I'd recommend getting a room at the back so you can have an evening drink on your balcony in the sun.

The staff at Byron Bay Side Central Motel are very nice. My partner was quite sick and they were very considerate. Excellent location considering the good price. When we return to Byron we will go back as we were very happy.

Rooms are a great size, also handy have the kitchen and washing machine/dryer. Staff were pleasant and helpful at the start however inconsistent with they're rules. Was threatened to be evicted for having more then the registered guests in one room, even when they were staying in another room and even when the night before the other manager dropped by when there was 2 more people in the room then registered and didn't mention anything. Was constantly being yelled at for playing normal music on low volume at noon, noise was told to be kept at the minimum of 1pm. Not pleasant if you're with friends and like to socialise with them. Probably great for families. Not the nicest interior but comfy beds and spacious rooms. Great for families not young adults.

Room Tip: If you want quieter and nicer hotels, you're just gonna have to pay more.

We booked this place online at Wotif after checking trip adviser reviews. Upon arrival we greeted by a very friendly man at reception who gave us the run down on the room & was exceptionally helpful about getting around the bay. The room itself was very large with a double bed & single bed & kitchenette as well as washer & dryer in the bathroom. I was impressed with how spacious it was & the level of cleanliness. We were also super impressed at the large balcony attached to our room which we loved & had drinks on every arvo. Location is perfect just a few minutes easy walk to the hustle & bustle of Byron. Guests were all informed if the no noise/no party policy which reassured us we had picked the right place. Free undercover car park that is secure at night was also a bonus. We were in room #17 & was great for the 2 of us & happy with the price of approx $150 per night given the location & quality of the room. Would definitely stay here again!! Thank you.

Great location and very helpful and friendly staff, free wi-fi too which is a bonus. The room and kitchenette were a good size and the private balcony was great to have - especially with a washing machine and drying rack available. The room itself was a bit dated but was clean and serviced each day. Good place to stay if you're looking for somewhere central and affordable.
