“Good room in centrally located motel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

We discovered BB is a pretty expensive place to stop with limited accommodation. Hibiscus was recommended to us by the Beach Motel which is owned by the same person. But the Hibiscus has been renovated, rooms were clean, with the necessary amenities as well as limited free wireless internet. Located within the central BB area with easy access to lots of restaurants, beaches and shopping. The managers (who apparently are moving on) were excellent providing us with lots of information on the area and assisting us with some reservations.

A great motel super close to the main beach (about a 2 min walk!) and all the restaurants and shops etc. Owners are lovely and very helpful, there's free wifi with a generous limit for every device but they were happy to extend this for us as my bf was revising for an exam! Super helpful.
The rooms were great, amazingly clean and modern -they look nothing like the traveller photos on here as they've been completely done up- only thing missing was maybe a hob but other than that the kitchen was great, and all the restaurants and food places are so close anyway!

We stayed here for the first time over the weekend - well, our first time at this motel but we have been to Byron several times before. This place is a real find. The location is awesome, right near the centre of town but still quiet.
The four of us stayed in a two bedroom unit and there was plenty of room. Looked like it had been renovated in the past few years. Everything was really clean. Air conditioning was greatly appreciated.
There is a common iron and ironing board in the laundry but there were no issues in being able to get in there to use it.
Finally, the owners were really nice and couldn't do enough for us. This will be our new place to stay in Byron.

Great little spot in Byron with nice people running the motel.

The rooms are very spacious, and modern and very clean.

It was very hot , whilst our stay and was thankful for good air-con.

The only negative to us was the bed seemed small.. not sure what size it was

But overall a very good place to stay and would stay again..

4/5

Best motel we (2 couples) have ever stayed at. New, clean och perfect location, only 2 minutes of walking to the beach and shopping and restaurants right outside the motel. Quiet. Free parking. Friendly staff.
