My partner and I visited Byron Bay for the first time and spent 4 nights at The Crest. We were pleasantly surprised at our apartment and the grounds. Very tidy, gorgeous BBQ and pool area and only 5-10 mins walk to the CBD. Loved every minute of our stay! Thanks Crest!

A great little place about 5-10 minutes walk from the centre of town. Everything was clean and tidy. The kitchen had everything we needed (dishwasher, blender, coffee machine, etc) and the room included some nice bonus items like playing cards, books, an iron and access to a pretty extensive DVD collection. The only small issue was the lack of aircon...

Dianne457, Manager at The Crest Byron Bay, responded to this review

Dear Erinkazaam - unfortunately the unit you stayed in is self managed by the owner and is not managed by us as part of The Crest Byron Bay so really your review should not be here it should be on the booking site you used to book the room. That is the only way the owner will get this feedback....

I stayed here with my wife over four days and we loved it. I was tossing up between Aman & cinca the "luxury apartment" next door however got turned off by the shared kitchen and lounge area. The crest was about 40% cheaper and we had our own very roomy kitchen and lounge. Saltwater pool was great too.

Thanks Mehmet for posting a review. The feedback we get is consistently that our apartments are very spacious with even the one bedroom apartments having a separate bedroom plus a roomy lounge/dining and kitchen area so you can really spread out and relax without having to share the space with anyone. We do hope that we will be able to...

Amazing place to stay. Short walk to both CBD & beach. Quiet location with all the amenities you need. Hosts are excellent & very accommodating. Nothing is too much trouble. Just one thing. The bush turkeys are scary! Thank you so much. Hope to be back, Vicki, Amanda & baby Skyla

My new husband chose The Crest for the first part of our honeymoon and we couldn't fault our stay! Doug & Di were amazing hosts and very helpful with activity ideas and good spots for food when we arrived.

We had read the positive reviews and maybe our expectations were too high as a result. The apartments were fine although the wifi problems were an issue as we had no wifi for 2 evenings of our 3 night stay.
