Great location, friendly staff, nice sized rooms, good bed. Waves was a pleasure to stay at. The only minute gripe I had was the fluctuation in water temperature when having a shower, everything else was great, I highly recommend Waves to anyone looking for a stay close to the heart of Byron Bay, just park the car in their secure...

The location of Waves is brilliant - to the beach, restaurants, shops. Not having a pool is fine as the beach is right there. One of the prettiest beaches with surf lifeguard close.We didn't need a car with a efficient bus service from Ballina airport. The king bed was great and mini bar fridge just large enough to put a...

When we booked our room here it was one week out from when we wanted to check in. There will very little available left in town. Waves looked like the place that would suit our needs best. Best decision we have ever made! I can't say anything bad about this place. We have been here for 10 days. Quiet a...

Very close to beach and a nice walk to town. Bathroom was great and big beds. Good parking and safe locked garage. Rooms were fairly quiet even if on the road side of hotel. Great service from the receptionist and towels for the beach.

The room and lobby were very clean. The daily service of the room was done when it suited without a problem. The property is situated in a perfect location. Staff were friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed one night on the way to Gold Coast. Very good. Large room. With 2 King beds. Friendly service. Good location. 5 min walk to main strip but also at the quiet end of the street. Has parking underneath. Air conditioning very good. While complex is well maintained and modern. A bit expensive if you pay the full rack rate.

Great location but that is it. Was made to wait an extra hour after the original check in. After we arrived early and left our bags, we were told the room would be ready early and they would call but it was an extra hour from normal check in time and they never called. When we finally got our room...

Right near the surf club and a tiny stroll to the main Byron shopping/cafe area. Big spacious rooms, comfortable beds, with lovely private bbq outdoor areas attached to the ground floor rooms. The fruit, coffee and breakfast areas are friendly and relaxed (and the choice of delicious muffins fantastic). Front desk staff are happy, helpful and make for a comfortable...

Only stayed for 1 night. Great location, rooms clean and nice. Upon checkout the lady at reception said we could keep our car parked for the morning and offered us beach towels as we were heading to the beach for a bit. Complimentary juice, coffee and muffins in the reception area.

The reception and house keeping staff really looked after me, the inside of the room was lovely, clean and had all i needed, the main building facade was a little tireed in places, weather beaten being on the coastline. I had a fantastic weeks rest, I will definitely return
