Not much available in Byron on that long weekend, so expected to pay the extra knowing the town can fully book out. Having spent a few days unsuccessfully looking for appropriate accommodation this motel came to my attention. a quick look at the reviews and on to the phone to book. The location is as good as you can get...

Hi Peter Appreciate the great review. Glad you enjoyed our venue's services and facilities, I'll pass your thoughts onto our team. We are located in one of the best spots in Byron, only a short walk to beaches, town CBD and other interests such as our weekly and monthly markets. Great you were able to have the extra time to...

The room is quite basic but clean and spacious. It is quite expensive for what you get but that is the going price in Byron. Very central and lovely to hear the waves from the beach as we were waking up/going to sleep.

This hotel is overpriced in my view,the room was very basic, the bed was uncomfortable and uneven, there were only a few powerpoint and not in convenient locations. Charges the "going rate" but not all rooms are equal. Advice, find another place.

Our party of four has just arrived home having used Wollongbar Motel as our base for Splendour in the Grass festival.

The rooms are older style but neat, very clean and beds are definitely...

Five minutes from the town centre and beach this motel is perfectly located. The room was large and nicely decorated. The motel is on a busy street, however our room was in the back section so was very quiet. The pool and gardens were lovely and the back gate to the beach very convenient. I would definitely stay here again.

Very spacious family room with a second separate bedroom. Even the bathroom was huge. Everything was clean and neat and having a kitchenette was an added bonus. The only negative I could say was there was a small floor height difference up to the tiled bathroom floor which could be a trip hazard for a person of any age. The...

Sure this motel is not particularly modern but it's certainly one of the cleanest places I've stay. Close to town and main beach, the motel's pool is small but again very clean and well maintained.

This property represents excellent value for money in a destination where accomodation can be quite expensive. Short walk to town (5 mins) and you can access the beach from a gate at the back of the property so that's only a few minutes away too. They lend you beach towels, boogie boards and beach toys and games. We were in...
