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.

We booked this hotel as it was one of the cheapest in the area and felt it was great value. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and the room was clean and tidy. It is situated on a busy road so there is some traffic noise but we walked into town and to the beach with no issue.

Stunning motel with great service, clean and spacious rooms, and good amenities (e.g. surf boards, electric bikes). The decor is beautiful throughout and the staff went above and beyond during our stay here. We loved every minute.

Noise noise noise ! What a great renovation to the Sunseeker ! Unfortunately the house next door likes to party into the early hours. Booked for 4 nights stayed 2 and had to check out as both nights I got no sleep. The assistant manager was helpful but the owners declined with a request for a refund.

My husband and I stayed at The Sunseeker last week of January 2022. After many months of changing bookings, and re booking it was wonderful to finally be at The Sunseeker. To finally meet the amazing team of Mia, Tilly, Jimmy and the gang (so sorry you were all so kind and friendly and I have forgotten all your names, forgive me) From the minute I entered the reception area I felt at home .Nothing was to much trouble. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms, which was more than comfortable, and the access to the pool perfect, outside the door. The pool area was for me the highlight, an OASIS, with its surrounding garden and area near by to sit and eat. Cold water on tap and for the little people it was Kiddy heaven, go karts, trampoline and play equipment all there to be played on and enjoyed. Our children live in Byron and now ovoid is behind us (hopefully) we hope to visit very regularly. The Sunseeker is our preferred home away from home. Thank you look forward to seeing you in March.

Had two nights at the Sunseeker after an recommendation. The motel is styled exceptionally well with the rooms having all the modern conveniences. The issue for me was noise and a little lack of care for the price range. Room 4 is located right next to the housekeeping store room so from 10am the staff talking and moving in and out, it was like they’re in the room with you. The pool is out the other side so you hear chatter from all the guests. On top of that they forgot to service my room so after purposely going out I came back to an unmade room. The second night the neighbourhing house had a party and again the conversations that went till 4am made for an unsettling night. This is of no fault of the motel but ruined my stay. Good things: close to town and nice staff.

Awesome staff and great value for money over the Christmas break! Everywhere else was 2 or 3 times more!! We found Sunseekers staff friendly and accommodating in every way. The pool is fantastic with great deck chairs and umbrellas. Rooms are spacious and clean and surprisingly really quiet inside. It’s about a 15-20min walk to the main strip which was totally fine as you can get an Uber cheap enough if you want to. Highly recommended

Friendly & informative welcome by the owner. Room was clean, spacious and comfy with tea and coffee facilities, fridge and good size bathroom. The pool was the winner for this place. Lovely garden surrounds and nice size pool. I would recommend for small families as there is also a bbq area by the pool to make your own meals. A short drive from the city centre so best to have a car.

This is a standard low-star motor-inn sort of place. But we found the rooms to be very clean, with a good choice of 'freebies' in the bathroom (usually you get the tired, drab stuff, but this was a nice touch in a motel in this budget-range). But the kicker were the staff. The owners/managers had us laughing and relaxed within 5 minutes of arrival. So funny, witty, charming and extremely helpful. A definite consideration if going to Byron for a couple days
