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.

The property is overrated. Just a regular motel nothing special. Swimming pool is facing the main road.
The queen bed ? was rather small for an expensive motel.
The toilets were pathetic. I have never seen such a small bathroom. You cannot enter the toilet without squeezing to the side to avoid the WC. The shower did not have tap handles and no shower screen . You had to shower in the corner to avoid the water wetting the whole toilet. The wash hand basin is in the bedroom you have to brush your teeth and wash up outside. !!!!!
On the second day our towels were not changed and the next day we left the empty box of tissues out to be replenished but this did not happen.

Very Poor impression....

Perfect location and very friendly staff that were accommodating after our big drive. Walking distance to the main streets and main beaches, this came in handy as we could come back to the room to freshen up a few times a day and still be close enough to go back out for another walk around or to the restaurants without needing the car.
Close to walking tracks that lead up to the lighthouse (about 1.5hrs round trip so a decent walk) but lovely beaches and views to stop at on the way.
The bathroom was fine having the basin just outside the bathroom area, good use of the space and shower was one of the best we’ve had and a great size!
As it is a motel it was a little loud at times, could hear the children in the room next door in the early evenings but didn’t keep us awake.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling into Byron, good value and can’t beat the location! We will stay again on our return!

10/10 for the location! Wonderful accommodation in the heart of Byron bay, parking on site means you don’t have to try to find a park in the busy streets and everything is walking distance. Excellent service from booking to check in. We were very happy with the room, room 8. Room is super spacious, clean, very comfy bed, loved the mirrors and the sink in the main room with the shower being separate. Wonderful service throughout our stay. The pool is perfect to sit by and have a swim when the winds pick up of an afternoon.

A little pricey but everywhere in Byron is, I did my research before booking here and this is true value for money. We enjoyed our stay here, and used the pool which was nice, and wifi was good and it was an over all good experience. I recommend the Italian in the bottom of the motel simply delicious.

Stayed at #18. Lots of space, very clean and ideal for a family. We had 4 adults and 2 kids.
Beds are very comfortable and the split rooms were great.
The folks working here seemed really nice and helpful. Location is perfect with great parking.
Very happy and will be back.

The location is the highlight of this motel. Really spot on. Great access to pretty much everything you could possibly need. Swimming pool is also quite nice. Ideal to have a little swim after the beach. Impecable service and really friendly and nice clients!

The Motel is neat and tidy, great location, close to beaches and shops, you can walk to most places. The pool is good for a swim and to sit around and relax. It was our first time to Byron and we love it and will definitely stay at Bay Beach when we come back.
