“Great value for money!”
Reviewed June 1, 2008

I only stayed the one night but will definately go back again. It doesnt look like much from the outside but the room itself was large, very clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is in easy walking distance to the main street of Byron and very close to the beach. The tariff also included a continental breakfast and an 11am checkout.

We booked this place not knowing much about Byron but were pleasantly surprised! Ended up having an extra person and the people at front desk were more than happy to help with an extra bed! We came back a bit late a couple of nights and may have been a bit loud but there were no dramas. The laundry was good and front desk again were more than happy to help with detergent etc.
The breakfast was really good, fresh fruit went down a treat at that stage of the week!
The location was fantastic, probably a 5 minute walk to the main roundabout in town, from there its only a couple of minutes to the beach, including main pub and good restaurants. About another 5 minutes to Cheeky Monkey (a good place to spend a night out.)
All in all, really happy with this hotel and would try and stay there again when i go back!

The motel is only a couple of minutes walk to the centre of town, backs onto the gorgeous beach and is basic, but very clean and comfortable. We stayed in a family room - one large room with a queen bed and an adjoining roon with 2 single beds - great for families. The room rate included breakfast - fabulous fresh fruit salad, pastries, organic locally produced plunger coffee etc. Recommend for its location and great service.

The Wollongbar is well located only a short stroll to the centre of town and/or the beach. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and quiet with cable television and a big bathroom. Good value for money and hospitable management.

Motels/apartments in Byron Bay are generally expensive but the Wollongbar offers good value for money. Rooms are large (motel style) and comfortable.
The beach is just at the back of the motel (take care swimming here - if not a strong swimmer best to walk up to the patrolled area) and the town is 5 minutes walk away.
Amenities include a pool and BBQ facilities.

  • Liked — Location and value
  • Disliked — Didn't feel close to the attractions of Byron even though it is close to everything.

Loved this motel. It's superbly located..within 5 minutes walk or 10 minutes late night stagger from the town centre. Well run with very comfortable and reasonably priced accommodation. Welcome relief can be had from the sun with a dip in the pool and it's only a stones throw to the beach which runs behind the motel. Highly recommend.
