A nice comfortable motel in central Byron Bay. Close to shops and restaurants. Nice big room with a good size bathroom. Loved having a ceiling fan so didn't need to use the air conditioning. Would certainly recommend this motel and stay here again if returning to Byron Bay.

A larger than average room, with basic kitchenette. A private footpath to the lovely beach, 5 minute walk to shops restaurants and cafes. Plenty of car parking and small swimming pool. Bonus was a laundry room with washers dryers and a linen line. Would have benefited for an iron and ironing board in each room, as no one wants to...

I made this booking through the usual Qantas hotel site. Very easy to select via the map. This motel is close to the town and therefore close to the cafe restaurant and tourist areas of Byron Bay. It has access to the beach across the disused train line. The motel has a pool, free wifi, parking is close to the...

Excellent location! 150m to beach through private access gate, couple minute walk to the centre of town! Ideal for stay in Byron. Can't complain, very reasonable price compared to other places in Byron considering the location.

We stayed for one night a few weeks ago. Usually we stay at more expensive places but we just wanted a cheap weekend away. The service was friendly, the room was neat and clean.

The room is quite basic but clean and spacious. It is quite expensive for what you get but that is the going price in Byron. Very central and lovely to hear the waves from the beach as we were waking up/going to sleep.

This hotel is overpriced in my view,the room was very basic, the bed was uncomfortable and uneven, there were only a few powerpoint and not in convenient locations. Charges the "going rate" but not all rooms are equal. Advice, find another place.
