This motel was the very few avail on Easter Sunday. It's a quaint motel, nicely decorated, across the street from Tallow Beach. We stayed at the studio - it was overpriced AUD $295 (incl tax) for Easter Sunday. The room was spacious with the extra couch / day bed area. The front entrance to the room was surprisingly not cleaned....

A hidden gem in sleepy Suffolk Park just a short distance from Byron and the perfect place to relax. Across the road from a gorgeous beach without the crowds and a short walk to the Bakery, Pub and shops. The best way to enjoy the Bluesfest without the crowds. Susie and Rosemary are lovely hosts.

We had a wonderful stay at the Tallow Beach Motel in Suffolk Park near Byron Bay. It was off the beaten path in the most wonderful way with a beautiful beach across the street, lovely setting, immaculate property with "zen" theme and clean, spacious rooms. There was also a nice pool that we didn't have a chance to use due...

This is a great hotel, quiet, friendly and so close to a lovely beach. I walked to Byron, hired a bike and explored. We also had a car that we could park on site. Our room had a kitchen so we could make meals. I'll return there again for sure.

we are very pleased that you enjoyed with stay with us in one of the studio rooms that have a kitchenette. it is an easy flat walk to town, but it is 5km so best done in the cool of the morning - there is a bike path leading into town which meanders along behind the sand dunes and then...

One couldn't get much closer to Tallow Beach without getting wet! The rooms are cheerful, clean and practical with a small kitchen area. The owners have been here for many years and they know what makes for a pleasant stay. Always lovely to stay at Tallow Beach.

Thanks for your comments - yes we are just across the road to beautiful Tallow Beach. Glad you enjoyed your stay in one of the studio rooms with a kitchenette - not all of them do have the small kitchenette area, they usually have to be requested, so happy that it worked for you. we look forward to welcoming you...

Wonderful - just wonderful. No need to say any more. You've read all the other reviews and my wife and I concur. So, take my word - when next in Byron Bay do yourself that favour I mentioned in the headline and give this little treasure a go.

My husband and I stayed here over the Christmas/ New year break for 1 night, it was one of the only places left. Although it was slightly out of Byron, we agreed that it was more suited to us anyway.

Thanks so much for your great description of your experience after your recent stay at our motel. Your comments are extremely helpful to future guests and us, as we are tucked away out of town and can be a little difficult to find without the aid of a nav.system! we look forward to welcoming you back again.

Hot water is barely hot, kettle provided didn't work, coffee cups were dirty when we went to use them, sheets were stained, rooms weren't attended to daily, the door is not sealed properly & with that we found MULTIPLE LIVE cockroaches & huntsman spiders which I'm petrified of & would rather not share a room...
