I spent the last weekend of April in Byron Bay by myself as my husband was away and I thought I would indulde myself with a nice B&B. Well it did not start well, I arrived at 5pm to check in after a busy drive from Brisbane and there was no one there, I tried to ring but no one answered. I went for a walk and came back and met a very nice couple who let me in as it was getting cold and dark (and mosquitoes). While I was waiting in the house I found a B&B card with a mobile number and tried to ring but again no one answering and it was rigging in the room next door. The couple told me they had seen the owner at a bar around a corner so I just waited. Finally the owners arrived and gave me the key about 1 hour later. I had booked a single room and it was very very simple, a bed, a chair and a towel holder. The first night I slept a few hours only as the other guests kept me awake moving around the house. I was very disapointed because the reason I booked a B&B and not a YHA was to stay away from the noise. It felt more like sharing a house with flat mates, with the rooms on the first floor the stairs and doors were very noisy. As a summary I would say the house and garden are pretty, the location is amazing at walking distance from the beach, but no great attention to detail is given to the rooms or the shared bathroom, and not much cleaning happened during the two nights I stayed there... Breakfast was good with fresh fruits and croissants. My expectations were too high, it is obviously the location that makes the B&B.
