I stayed for one night only for business but I'll definitely go back for leisure. Great location and nice and tidy room. Welcoming staff and clean place. Located right across the beach. Little noisy at night but still had a good night sleep.

If you looking for the best location and price in Byron then this is the place. Right on beach, next to Bryon Bay Beach Hotel and main street. Clean rooms, free wi-fi, fox sports channels, parking, cleaned daily and helpful manger and staff. Highly recommended.

Are Sarah and Rod still managing??? They were amazing!
No they're not, Sarah did my booking last year & was amazing, very return customer orientated. New manager has a different agenda to them.

Hi FlossP91, Thank you for taking the time to email us. We currently have construction at the rear of our property, unfortunately I have been unable to locate the review that mentions a 5.30am start. If I could read this it would help with me get a feel of what the previous guest was describing. The construction team has requested they start early on 1 occasion to complete a large concrete pour. This was a one off request and they started setting up at 6.30am. Please be assured that the building site in not allowed to start prior to 7am. As previously reviews have mentioned the building site did not bother them during there stay. Thanks for noting your concerns and look forward to seeing you in August. If you would like to discuss this further please call reception on 02 6685 6121. Kind Regards Simone Public Relations Manager

"Ask for Room 11 if you need accessibility"
"Just ask for the second floor rooms."
"our room was on ground floor right next to the office...parked outside it."
"Very noisy multi storey building site directly behind. Noise from very early morning and throughout the day, crane operating over motel."
"On the top floor you have to carry your bags up so better the bottom floor if you have any walking difficulties."
