A beautifully renovated federation house that oozes with peace and tranquility. Our room was spacious, bed was comfy and Dianne was friendly and welcoming. Located in a quiet area it is close enough to walk into town. Loved it!

It is a lovely old timber building with verandah Beautiful room comfortable bed and lovely double shower. Place is just out of town, within easy walking distance. We are used to hotel accommodation, so being a guesthouse we found it a little noisy

We wanted to get away for the weekend and Byron Bay never disappoints. We usually stay in hotels but had to book the guest house due to everything being booked. Diane made us very welcome and provided us with a host of choices for eating out. The Beachcomber Room was the perfect room to retreat to with a beautiful bay...

Arcadia House is a beautiful house, fully renovated with spacious, clean and very comfortable rooms. The deck is a great place to kick back with a book and a beer in the afternoon sun. The house is a short walk into town with a few local cafes basically just around the corner. Dianne, the host, is welcoming and friendly. We'll...

We wanted a relaxing weekend break and Arcadia certainly delivered. The beachcomber room was beautiful, with a bay window seat for reading. The shutters were very effective at keeping out early morning light, and the bathroom was newly renovated with a double shower, if you're travelling with someone you know well :-). Tea and coffee supplies were provided, a communal...

My girlfriend and I were road tripping from Hervey Bay to Melbourne and decided we'd stop at Byron for a night. We decided we'd stay here and booked the 'Gone fishing' room and we absolutely loved it. Great room and service, but the real highlight for us was the free bikes that they had for guests. Cycling through Byron was...

My wife & I spent 3 nights in the Turtle Diver room recently & it was spacious & comfortable with a lovely big bed & ensuite. The location was peaceful, yet convenient to town & the house bikes were a huge bonus. We would recommend Arcadia House to anyone looking for great value accommodation in Byron.

a beautiful and tranquil place to stay. Close enough to walk to town, but quiet enough to sit on the verandah in the afternoon sun and read in the quiet. Everything you could want, clean and tidy and comfortable
