BreakFree Eco Beach
Ranked #12 of 34 Hotels in Byron Bay
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I always stay BreakFree Eco Beach when I visit Byron Bay. The reasons for this are simple -1)location, 2)property & 3)service. Location: away from the hustle and bustle of town but only a few minutes walk to the heart of Byron. Property: clean, comfortable and modern. Service: it always feels like coming home when I come to BreakFree Eco Beach. Sharon and the team are always ahead of the game with whatever is needed and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend BreakFree Eco Beach to anyone visiting Byron Bay.

Great location less 10 minute's walk to the centre of town.
Although located on the major drag heading into Byron from the north, my apartment which was located around the back was quiet and peaceful - just the sounds of birds and the surf.
Apartment was clean and comfortable and the staff were really friendly and helpful.
Again, just being a short stroll to Byron's restaurants, bars and cafes, you would be hard pressed to beat the location - especially during peak periods when downtown Byron can get pretty manic.

Room Tip: Ask for a room around the back of the complex - the sound of birds and surf beats traffic any day!

My wife and I stayed in Breakfree Eco Beach in Byron Bay over the October long weekend.
We found the hotel to be located in a good spot, just out of the centre so not to be too noisy, but close enough for an easy walk to the bars and restaurants.
The room we had was clean and modern, the staff were very friendly. There's undercover secure parking too which I wasn't expecting.
Next time we go back to Byron we will definitely be returning here.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room on the ground floor at the front of the hotel and it was very quiet. I guess s...

The hotel is in good location short walk to the town centre and the rooms are nice and clean.
The first room we got was on the front of the property so facing the main road and I found it too noisy. We were allowed to change rooms but for an extra $80 cleaning fee.
Our second room was at the back of the property and was nice and very quiet. The whole property and the rooms I saw were well kept and clean.
I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back of the property - lot quieter that the front which is facing the main roa...

Thanks for your comments. Please note that whilst we do our best to fulfill requests we cannot guarantee them. Everyone's noise tolerance is different and although street front, most of these rooms have nice sunny balconies overlooking the pool.

Flexible accommodation (we had interconnecting rooms) near enough to walk into the centre (7 mins) but far enough away to be quiet.
No direct access to the beach but access in either direction (5 mins).
We didn't ask for much but the General Manager was lovely & very helpful; nothing would have been too much trouble. The most impressive thing was that it was spotlessly clean.
