Waves at Byron
Quiet and central location . A fabulous idea of Providing, fresh muffins, tea, coffee, juice and fruit to all guests for breakfast . ,Something other motels should look to do especially if your room has no cooking facilities or there is no in-house restaurant. Not all guests can afford to eat out 3 times a day
