A last min stay to be remembered. Beautiful facilities, really comfy bed and an incredibly friendly and accommodating owner. Barbara's guesthouse is just a couple of minutes walk to town, though nice and quiet. Optional breakfast is provided and amazing kitchen facilities at hand. Laundry facilities available, as well as wifi, an outdoor shower, a BBQ, herb garden etc! I highly recommend staying at Barbara's, there is something for every budget.

Room tip: All rooms are pretty, clean and comfy, it really depends on your budget level. If you're OK sharing a bathroom with 3/4 others, or if you'd prefer your own bathroom, or if you'd prefer your own self-contained studio with bathroom, kitchen and sitting area...

All the charm and character of Byron without the hotel expense. It's an easy few minutes walk into town, the Rails Hotel, markets and the beach. With a beautiful garden and lawn and back verandah there is a sense of space and country serenity with tasteful original beach house touches.
The owner is very friendly and welcoming making sure we had all the conforts for our beach holiday.
We've stayed twice and hope to bring a group and book out the whole house for a week with friends.The shared bathrooms worked well and we hardly saw the other guests. Love it. Love Byron.

Room tip: The studio is spacious.

Have stayed twice and have booked again. That says it all really.
For me Barbara's is the ideal place to stay in Byron and has everything I need to ensure a relaxing stay in a property with some character for a change..
Whether you have a room with or without ensuite it doesn't matter as there's an amazing outdoor shower anyway!
Rooms are all excellent, kitchen ideal and the outdoor area perfect to chill out and/or have a nap at the end of another lazy day in Byron.
Thanks Ginny - you are Hoz are the perfect hosts. See you again soon!

I booked a room with a private bathroom, which was good-sized and very clean with a comfortable bed. After 2 months living in the hotel in Sydney (for work reason), I wanted to have some "personal" touch, Barbara's Guesthouse provided me the lovely 5 nights stay - lovely terrace (I had breakfast there every day as well as beer in the late afternoon), cute herb garden, fully-equipped shared kitchen. It's not the concrete building like a hotel, so you can hear the people's movement but luckily I had very nice people around who did not make much noise (like young backpackers), I rather enjoyed the chit-chat with other guests every day. Virginia (owner) was very friendly and helpful, always trying to make her customer's stay comfortable. Also great location - it's a residential area, but could reach the centre within a few miutes using the shortcut. Everything was charming and relaxed for me, definitely will come back! Thanks Virginia!

I booked a room here for a girls' weekend at late notice, and was thrilled that we got it. This is a lovely guesthouse, comfortable, clean, neat, warm and welcoming, with beautiful livable spaces, especially the garden! Comfortable small verandah out the front, and out the back a good-sized deck furnished with couches and day-beds and a large outdoor dining table, looking out onto a low maintenance garden with raised garden beds (herbs and vegies), and a big shady tree. We decided rather than going out in the evening we'd just relax on the back deck with some wine - perfect! We had to share the main bathroom but that was no problem: neat, efficiently sized, well-appointed and beautifully presented. There's an outdoor shower, too, to wash sand off after going to the beach (or if the main bathroom is in use), housed in an artistic spiral of corrugated metal and decorated with pretty plants. Our room was small but neat, tidy and the space was used well. I only got a slight glimpse at one of the other rooms but it looked really comfortable too. The guesthouse has high ceilings, polished wooden floors, with Persian-style rugs and runners, and no fewer than three places to have meals - gosh, this sounds like a real-estate review! The kitchen is lovely - retro style, everything you need, and most breakfast items are provided in the ample cupboards and fridge. This is no nasty,grotty backpackers - this is relaxed, quiet, good-quality home-away-from-home accommodation. In fact, I wish it WAS my home!
