Upon check in and check out received most helpful information on the area. Very friendly and welcoming. Rooms clean and comfortable. Closer to the beach and restaurant area. An atmosphere to come back to.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The motel is across the road to the beach and just along from shops and restaurants. There is a pool but the water was quite cold compared to the surf at this time of the year. The room was small but adequate. We were on the ground floor and we could park our...

Property was 1 street back from beach and 2 streets back from main shopping and restaurants. Bed was comfortable and property was clean. Would have preferred a property closer to the action but that is not a representation of property. It is dated on the outside but rooms love ok like they have been refurbished. Receptionist was very friendly and...

Very clean, nice rooms and close to the beach. Friendly people, nice (shallow) pool with loungers. Byron Bay is not a cheap place to stay, especially at weekends, so we were a bit miffed to find a $5/£2.50 charge per day per device for the Internet (and, being in the room furthest from reception, the signal was a bit patchy...

We booked this motel for a weekend away, and although quite basic it is clean and only a couple of blocks from the centre of town and one block from the beach. The bed is great, bathrooms clean and toiletries are supplied. The pool is only one metre deep by deep enough to cool off. All in all a pleasant...

One of the rare places in Byron Bay where you can get one night's accommodation at a very reasonable price (during the peak season). The motel is centrally located and you can be in the town centre within a few minutes walk. The room was spacious and very clean. The reception staff very friendly and helpful.

A great little motel in Byron Bay!! Recently refurbished. Arrived a little earlier than the 2pm check in time, but I was able to check in early as my room was ready. Mary Jane at Reception was so friendly and ever so helpful (a lifesaver at times!). The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and had bedside lamps...

My partner and I stayed here last minute after being flooded whilst camping and Mary Jane was absolutely wonderful! Her excellent customer service saved our weekend and we'd recommend this place to anyone staying in Byron :) :)

Pros: Nice and clean Cons: small room, shower head needs to be changed maybe? No water pressure at all and there was no hot water when we decided to have a shower before we left. Hope this will get fixed real soon.

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel. Unfortunately on the weekend of your stay we experienced an electrical issue which was resolved later that day. We have also had new shower heads fitted throughout the property. We apologise for any discomfort you experienced during your stay and hope to see you again one day!

Great motel in lovely Byron Bay. Arrived around 6pm without a booking and reception staff friendly and accommodated my needs. Was given a balcony room that was spacious. The bed was comfortable and had bedside lamps to do reading in bed. The room had a tv with a dvd connected which is really seen nowadays. There was free wifi for...
