I stayed at Waves with 2 friends for 1 night. Check in was relatively straightforward but took a long time! We had booked via hotels.com and on our confirmation we had "breakfast included". What this actually meant was a muffin and an apple with a tea or coffee, which is offered to all guests. The muffins were pretty substantial so we did actually have this as our breakfast.
We stayed in a triple room which was very spacious and we had a large balcony. Room was clean with great facilities - aircon, tea and coffee, hairdryer, safe, iron etc. Bathroom was huge with walk in shower and a bath. Very comfortable nights stay.
Hotel provides beach towels, you need to ask for these at reception. Free parking is available on site and we were able to leave our car here for the day after we had checked out.
Location of the hotel is excellent, a few metres away from the beach and a short walk to the main shops and restaurants. It is also close to the start of the cape Byron walk up to the light house.
Overall a great nights stay.

Great location . I booked through booking.com and got a confirmed reservation. Apparently there was an issue with my credit card, unusual , as I book on this site all of the time . Was asked to resubmit , confirmation again received. On checking in discovered that original booking was not being honoured and we had to move rooms after first night we were staying two nights. We were being upgraded to a penthouse first night and reverting to stateroom for second night. Charges to my credit card were made for each night at different rates so it seems upgrade was not complimentary . That aside reception staff were excellent and looked after us well. Both rooms very high standard furnishings and cleanliness. A short walk to beach and complimentary underground parking below the units. We had massive balconies for both nights . Not inexpensive but nowhere in Byron Bay is.

Hi Mr Mooney
Thank you for reviewing your recent stay and appreciate your comments. I would like to clarify your booking and subsequent up-grade. Occasionally through the booking process, bookings can overlap for a period of minutes and as your first booking had to be re-submitted, another booking was processed. We certainly did honour the only booking that came through to us. Your booking total payment online did not change and we did give you a complimentary up-grade. The rates differed between Friday and Saturday, so it may have been a little confusing, but we certainly did not charge you for the up-grade. We are sorry that we had to move you though, but as mentioned above, that can occasionally happen due to the internet speed of bookings being received and hitting our inventory system. If you should decide to visit Byron again, please call us direct where we can offer you our Best Price and up-grade.
The Team@WavesByronBay

Great apartment close to the beach and all the restaurants and cafes of Byron Bay. Clean and new and all staff were very friendly. Great location - close enough to walk everywhere but far enough from main street to be very peaceful

Room Tip: studio was perfect for a couple

Great location, this is a semi modern accomodation . I was in a suite and although was a great room, is somewhat beginning to show its age. I would return for the right price. Parking below is great as was for me the suite having a seperate bath and shower. Huge balcony was useful and staff were very kind/helpful some cleaners slightly not so much...

Stayed for a week in early Dec 2016. Room was large and clean. Location is just great; walking distance to shopping, restaurants and beach (beach is next to hotel).

The hotel has no restaurant. This was not an issue as within minutes (walking) there is an infinite variety of eating places. For those who cannot leave hotel on an empty stomach, complimentary muffins and fresh juice are available in the lobby.

A complimentary under-cover parking is available to guests.

Staff were typical Ozzies, very friendly and efficient.

I would stay there again.
