Byron Bay is a busy place, but the Crest is charming, and though on the main road into town, it is quiet and peaceful as soon as you enter. The gardens and pool area are beautifully cared for and super clean. The pool is warm and salty and we loved to have an early swim or laze there is the... More

Di and Doug are very welcoming and helpful for advice on local restaurants\activities. My friend and I stayed in a 1 bedroom place here and the room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable and the room had everything you need. The pool is lovely and the main beach and shops/Cafes is only a 5-10 minute walk down the road.... More

We had to travel to Byron for my niece's wedding - which was amazing. Which meant I had to find somewhere to stay. The Crest Byron Bay was fantastic! Full amenities (including dishwasher and washing machine / dryer), the room was spotlessly clean and the hosts were friendly and very helpful. Being a short (10 minute) walk from the center... More

We stayed at the Crest recently and loved it. It was quiet and peaceful with a terrific pool area. We had a villa unit with our own courtyard. The rooms were clean and really comfortable with everything you'd need for your stay. A short walk and you are in the hub of Byron with its great restaurants, beach and shops.... More

Close to beaches and the town and markets. We had a villa at the rear where we could sleep with the sound of the ocean. Lovely pool area with BBQ. The villa was great for us as two friends travelling together. Great for longer stays as it had kitchen and dining facilities. Friendly hosts.
