Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a great place. And they have cheap surfboards. Super close to everything. 2 mins to the beach, food, pubs. Friendly staff. Big social area. Hammocks. Everybody loves hammocks. Admit it, you love hammocks.

Great stay at Nomads, very central and easy to get around. Staff are great at helping you sort plans out, Noah helped us hire bikes to get to the lighthouse for sunrise which was one of the main things we wanted to do while in Byron Bay ☺️
