Wow what a find!

Delighted we found this place, what a gem. Just across the road from the most spectacular beach, 10 min walk to a great local pub, all conveniences in walking distance and close to town. Quiet, & super friendly staff. Feels like we found our own oasis! We will definitely be back.

    We found this a lovely little oasis. It was pet friendly. The room was small and a little dated, but spotlessly clean, and really well thought out. It had a microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery, refrigerator and more. The little courtyard was fantastic for our dog and to clean off after being at the beach. The bed was comfortable, and the room comfortable. The location was brilliant, directly across the road from beautiful Tallow Beach - about 5km long and dog friendly - beautiful white sand. The pool at the Motel is lovely and the gardens stunning.

    It is about a 10 minute drive to Byron Bay, has dedicated bike lanes if you prefer to ride. The area is rustic and quiet, really laid back. There are a few restaurants, pub and bakery all nearby. We really liked the location, general vibe of the area and the price for its location was excellent. We really hope to visit again.

    Room tip: We booked the pet friendly room which has a little courtyard which is really useful.

    A spontaneous trip to Byron for some much needed down time , led me to stumble upon a little gem .
    A stones throw from stunning Tallows beach Though it was hard to leave the serenity of the accommodation, surrounded by lush green gardens and a pool and the ambience was nothing but zen
    The room didn’t disappoint either. A quaint well presented self contained with a comfy bed and so clean and tidy

    This was a beautiful Balinese style motel, beautiful gardens and pool, beautiful rooms with thoughtful additions like books and hand cream...the kitchenette with tea and coffee were lovely
    Access to the beach was easy and Byron bay was a short drive away

    Stayed iust the one night, which was allowed - these days is unusual. Shame we could not stay longer. Room was a good size, nice and clean. Microwave, toaster, kettle, tea coffee etc supplied. Pool was clean, and motel was close to beach. Owner was helpful and friendly. 10 min walk to shops and pub, across the road from a lovely beach. Good pricing, we will return.

    Thanks so much fir taking time to write a review of your stay at our Tallow Beach Motel recently We are “old school” as you described us but try to offer old fashioned hospitality and comfort in a lovely beachside location just out of the rush and bustle of town, Byron. Hope to see you again fir a longer stay when we get through these tough times. Stay safe

    Lovely motel with excellent amenities. We stayed overnight only but would be a good place to stay for few days. Wonderful gardens and pool. Tallow Beach is just a walk across the road. Convenient shop and bakery around the corner.

    We are very pleased to know that you enjoyed your stay at Tallow Beach Motel. As we are a small motel and appreciate you sharing your comments about our little oasis and our location across the road to beautiful Tallow Beach. The nearby shops and bakery are a bonus if you dont wish to drive the 5km into Byron. We hope to welcome you back for a longer stay. Thank you.
