We stayed in Arcadia for two nights in the room with the adjoining door to the owners accomodation mentioned by other visitors. This was not a problem and we didn't even notice it was there. Arcadia is well located and only a short walk to the beach and shops. It was well presented, clean and quiet, and the bed was...

The owner was lovely as was the room. However, the room had a door that was not shown in the pictures that is joined to the living area of the owner and her young family. The door was old and thin and unfortunately opened up to the owners kitchen and lounge area. They locked the door after I alerted them...

Stayed here recently while passing through and was very impressed. The house is tucked away in the back streets of Byron but within walking distance of the town. The room was old style but very beautifully decorated and very spacious indeed along with a huge ensuite and shower and spa in the room I had. Very good value for money...

Beautiful period guesthouse at Byron Bay. Relatively central location and courtesy bicycles available for use. Only downfall is the period home characteristic besides it's beauty. 'thin' wall and crackling floor - beautiful but don't block noise.

Stayed 2 nights in the Queen Azul Spa Room. Absolutely, the most beautiful accommodation I have ever stayed in. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was immaculate. Although close to the main part of town, the room was peaceful, quiet and super relaxing. Dianne was also lovely host. Would definitely recommend when staying in Byron.

We stayed 4 nights in Arcadia House. The bed was comfortable and big. The bathroom is very spacious and clean. Diane is a lovely and helpful host, very welcoming. The guest house is in a very convenient spot, close to the beach and the town centre but far enough from the noisy streets. Only noise at night was the wind....

We stayed here for 2 nights and were in the Beachcomber room which had high ceilings, wooden floors, was spotless and spacious with a door leading to the verandah where you could sit and enjoy a glass of wine. Arcadia House is a stunning property and Dianne has really thought of everything - as well as a fridge in your...

Perfect accommodation for our 2 night stay. Gorgeous room with a modern ensuite and a lovely outside patio to sit outside in the evenings. Dianne was really friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

We were bewitched by this charming, colonial guesthouse. Idyllic and beautifully renovated a lot of loving attention goes into every detail. The wrap around porch is begging for some relaxing downtime, reading a book, listening to the local birds as it is in a quiet neighborhood slightly away from the main part of Byron (still in close proximity, though). Dreamy...

We stayed here for one night in December. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and had a large bathroom with jacuzzi bath. The location was good, perhaps a 15 minute walk to the centre of Byron Bay. There are bikes provided for guests use. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to anyone.
