“convenient for Byron Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

We have stayed here every time we come to Byron for many years, as it is so convenient and central. You can walk to the beach, the lighthouse and there is an underground car park which is handy to keep the car cool.
We had a loft room - room 8- which was noisy most early mornings as the garbage trucks pick up big metal bins from the shops behind the apartments. We paid $ 10 for internet access for a week but after 3 days of checking e-mails without downloading anything else the service stopped, as the download limit is so low.
The internet reception was very patchy in the room and you have to go outside to get connected.
There are a number of backpacker travel agencies in town that let you use the internet for free for 30 minutes so I would not bother paying for it.
The swimming pool was not busy at all and the BBQ is handy to have as there is an Aldi supermarket close by that sells reasonably priced meat if you want to eat in.

Other than that it was another great stay, with friendly and helpful staff.

My first time on trip advisor however Byron Central Apartments are worth the effort to give feedback. We had previously stayed elsewhere in Byron but made the change because there was 4 of us and Byron Central could accommodate us at reasonable cost. To say we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement. For the price we were expecting good but basic. It surpassed all expectations. Very clean, modern and comfortable. We had a loft style apartment and while the two kids (one an adult) could fit on the fold out sofa, we also has a single mattress already prepared in the upstairs main room just in case this would work better. Such thoughtfulness. On the last day, mid-week, we were given an extra long check-out which was also appreciated. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. Just fantasising how we can arrange to work remotely from there for a month or two. ;-) It really was glorious.

We usually stay at another place when we come to Byron and decided this time to try somewhere different and we are very glad we did. This place is in the perfect spot! its right in town and you can walk anywhere and if you do have a car you can park it in the undercover parking available. The room was perfect, we have a loft style and it had absolutely everything we needed. The staff are great and extremely helpful and always with a smile. The only thing was when there were lots of people/groups in the open area it could get quite noisy but that area closes at 9.30 and most nights people followed that. We will definately be staying here on our future visits

Stayed here for 2 nights while at a wedding and were very impressed. Good sized split level apartment that was clean and right in the centre of town. The lady at front desk ( owner I think ) was very friendly and the pool is perfect for a dip. You can't go wrong if you can get in here :)

We stayed here for one night, had booked it ages ago, and we had a baby grandson with us. Had a beautiful loft room, perfectly kitted out and spotless. Only downside was that we didn't get our room on time due to cleaning issues and with a baby it was a little hassle. staff were very friendly, it's a great location, and would recommend it highly.

I have stayed here a couple of times with my partner and have had great experiences as it's close to everything in Byron and has had a great atmosphere. I noticed there were a few groups staying there and the photos on their facebook looked quite inviting to group so I thought it would be a great place to book for a friends hens weekend over Australia day. When we checked in the lovely guy at the desk said after 9.30pm there is to be no noise which we happily agreed with as we would be out of the rooms by 9pm each night.
The first night I received a phone call at 6pm saying there is a baby next to the room we were gathered in which we happily decided to change rooms.
On the second night we were gathered in a room getting ready for dinner and playing some games as you do on a hens weekend. At 8pm we received a loud bang on the door with a extremely rude security guard yelling at us to turn the music off an leave. We kindly apologised about the noise and tried explain it was before 9.30pm but we will try and keep it down but we will be leaving very soon for dinner. Which he then yelled back to turn it off and leave!
Now a few of us have children and understand the frustrations of being away and putting up with noise. But we could not believe how horrible and rude this security guard was while we were respecting their policies on no noise after 9.30.
I won't be staying there again on how rude we were treated but would recommend this accommodation for couples and families only!

We stayed at Byron Central over Christmas 2013 in a beautiful, clean, spacious and fully kitted out deluxe loft apartment (which Scott the Manager had upgraded us to!). It was the perfect location! 2 minutes from the shops, bars and beach, yet really quiet during the evenings which allowed for a total chill out. The Pool was lovely and clean and fantastic to relax by. I have already recommended Byron Central to some friends who are planning their trip to Byron in December! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Having only seen the loft apartments I can't really comment, but overlooking the pool and having...
