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.

worst place ever do not stay here. They advertise incorrect prices then ask for more once you've sent them a deposit . Customer service is the worst I have ever experienced. Don't try And stay around bluesfest time as they don't display correct charge for your stay. They are all about money and not the customer . Avoid

We were met my the warm and convivial owner, Sue, who graciously welcomed us to the residents and patiently answered all of our questions. The cozy queen on-suite was perfect for a couple to relax and enjoy each other's company on the balcony. We loved the Sandals proximity to downtown Byron whilst maintaining its peaceful charm.

Well first we had to wait out front for someone to answer the phone, finally the owner arrived home to say "the key was under a brick didn't my wife tell you".(bad communication). As he took us to our room we had to chat to a bunch of couples just before we were met with a room the size of a broom cupboard. We were expecting everything specified on wotif,last minute and sandals website to be contained within the room - so when we saw the room which could barely fit 2 single beds and was lacking aircon, tv,fridge etc we were surprised and dissapointed. We paid the full price of a room that would normally have these standard features. The breakfast which was supplied consisted of some cereal and some bread, not great, also we were greeted by a friendly cockroach in kitchen. So from a noisey toliet and leaking taps and having a dog wander around bitting your toes this room shouldn't even be rented out. I think even $100 a night would be borderline worth it. Confrontation is pointless as we tried to comutacate with the owner's and thought they could help us out to resolve the situation but no.

I came and stayed a few years ago during the writers festival so the guest rooms were full. The gardens were lovely, and I was invited and had drinks with the owners. Easy street parking, near a great French Restaraunt, and not far from the beach and some great runs down to the beach. A little pricey and further back from the beach than other spots like apartments, but the location, a lovely shared kitchen and comfortable loungeroom all made it relaxing. Good for singles who don't like a lot of fuss.

Stays 3 nights at Sandalls B&B. Small single rooms with shared large bathroom and toilet. Nice garden and a shared living room kitchen where you can find your breakfast in the mornings. Feels like an old English cottage. All within walking distance of the restaurants, the shopping and beaches. Friendly owners happy to supply you with information

I stayed at Sandals for a weekend and it was a comfortable and relaxing stay. Felt homely, safe and like visiting family. I had a single room with shared bathroom facilities and it had a king size bed, wardrobe and fan. There are three bedrooms upstairs and there is a small and pleasant sitting room with tv and kitchen/dining room downstairs, which overlook the green and leafy garden. Breakfast consisted of juice, cereals, fruit, yogurt, tea and coffee. The place is located close to town, but in a quiet location so ideal for chilling out and relaxing. Sue and Malcolm are lovely and gracious hosts making me feel welcome. The only issue was finding the entrance to the property which is well hidden by the greenery. Overall, a pleasant relaxing stay.

I spent the last weekend of April in Byron Bay by myself as my husband was away and I thought I would indulde myself with a nice B&B. Well it did not start well, I arrived at 5pm to check in after a busy drive from Brisbane and there was no one there, I tried to ring but no one answered. I went for a walk and came back and met a very nice couple who let me in as it was getting cold and dark (and mosquitoes). While I was waiting in the house I found a B&B card with a mobile number and tried to ring but again no one answering and it was rigging in the room next door. The couple told me they had seen the owner at a bar around a corner so I just waited. Finally the owners arrived and gave me the key about 1 hour later. I had booked a single room and it was very very simple, a bed, a chair and a towel holder. The first night I slept a few hours only as the other guests kept me awake moving around the house. I was very disapointed because the reason I booked a B&B and not a YHA was to stay away from the noise. It felt more like sharing a house with flat mates, with the rooms on the first floor the stairs and doors were very noisy. As a summary I would say the house and garden are pretty, the location is amazing at walking distance from the beach, but no great attention to detail is given to the rooms or the shared bathroom, and not much cleaning happened during the two nights I stayed there... Breakfast was good with fresh fruits and croissants. My expectations were too high, it is obviously the location that makes the B&B.

I spent two nights at Sue and Malcolm's guesthouse and I loved it. Such nice people, a perfect room, a spacious living room and kitchen, a lovely garden and a delicious breakfast. It's a great place to stay in Byron and I can totally recommend it!

My sister & I stayed at Sandals in Byron Bay for four days in March. We were greeted on arrival by the lovely Malcolm & Sue who gave us a nice tour of the guest house. We had a spacious comfortable bedroom room & a seperate bathroom which we luckily had to ourselves for the whole stay. There was also a lush garden & large communal kitchen, dining & sitting area where we could relax after a long day. Everywhere was clean & tidy & tastefully decorated. Every morning we were greeted with fresh fruit & there was plenty of cereals to choose from. There was also tea & coffee making facilites & even a biscuit barrel!!! The guest house is also a short walk from the shops, cafes & beach & our hosts had lots of knowledge to share about Byron & the surrounding area. It really felt like home for those few days & we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandals. My sister & I would most definately recommend it to all our friends & family. A big thank you to Sue & Malcolm!! Lisa & Michelle xxx
