Byron Bay - can't decide on accommodation

Hi all,

We are coming to Byron for the first time on our way from Gold Coast down to Sydney and will be staying for 4 nights.

We have been looking at accommodation and are really tempted by The Byron At Byron however the prices are really expensive. The question is - is it really worth spending so much on accommodation in Byron? From what I have read there is plenty to do in Byron in the daytime so therefore we wouldn't really get full value from spending so much accommodation if we are going to be out everyday anyway.

Would appreciate any views you have and also any advice for more reasonably priced accommodation.

We are in our early thirties and coming to Aus for the first time!

Many thanks

Byron is expensive, its not easy to get cheap accommodation there. I guess you could check out lastminute of wotif websites for last minutes deals. I've only stayed twice before and both times were expensive. Unfortunately, Bryon's popularity has majorly jacked up the prices.

Have a look through the link below on wotif to see if others are more suitable. This is a great website to use if coming to Australia.

An apartment may be cheaper for you.

Hi Dan ---No the prices are ridiculous , so ridiculous how could anyone relax there. The resort is out of town and not in Byron township at all. Given your ages staying in town close to the beach and bars might be, more your scene.??

Many thanks for all of your replies - very helpful. We have been looking and have founds Waves Byron Bay to be 'reasonably' priced for BB standards anyway! It seems very central to the beaches etc.

We stayed at Aqua on Byron...across the road from the beach and 5 minutes walk into town. A fabulous villa, really comfortable. Try aquaonbyron.com.au you can check on availability and book there
