I stayed with a friend here and we loved it. From the moment we arrived, helpful staff and very clean motel with great facilities. We liked how they tidied our room and replenished our cold water in the fridge, the little touches like that make a difference. They gave us beach towels and board games and a map of Byron...

Prime location, friendly staff, clean and big rooms! This motel had everything we were looking for and more!! The private access to the beach was very valuable. The short distance (a few minutes walking) to town was also great! Perfectly happy with our stay 🖒🖒

An excellent base for your Byron Bay experience. A great little pool and superb private access to the beach and town. The family room was of average size and facilities, but I would stay again for the prime location factor.

A nice comfortable motel in central Byron Bay. Close to shops and restaurants. Nice big room with a good size bathroom. Loved having a ceiling fan so didn't need to use the air conditioning. Would certainly recommend this motel and stay here again if returning to Byron Bay.

A larger than average room, with basic kitchenette. A private footpath to the lovely beach, 5 minute walk to shops restaurants and cafes. Plenty of car parking and small swimming pool. Bonus was a laundry room with washers dryers and a linen line. Would have benefited for an iron and ironing board in each room, as no one wants to...

I made this booking through the usual Qantas hotel site. Very easy to select via the map. This motel is close to the town and therefore close to the cafe restaurant and tourist areas of Byron Bay. It has access to the beach across the disused train line. The motel has a pool, free wifi, parking is close to the...

Excellent location! 150m to beach through private access gate, couple minute walk to the centre of town! Ideal for stay in Byron. Can't complain, very reasonable price compared to other places in Byron considering the location.
