Close to beach
Great location, across the street from the beach so no need for a pool. It's also walking distance to the many bars and restaurants of Byron. The owner was great and super friendly.

Great Weekend Away
The bay Motel was the perfect place to stay for our weekend away. It was close to the beach, local shops and restaurants, all within a 5 minute walk from the Motel. The room was perfect for our family of four. It was clean and tidy, with everything you need.

A few days with the kids
Great location opposite the main beach and close to all the cafes. Price was a little higher than I expected but I guess it is School Holiday season. Meredith the manager was very pleasant and so helpful.

Exceptional 10.0
Perfect location for a Surf Club wedding.
The motel was excellent. We had 10 family members stay for my son's wedding which was held at the surfclub across the road. The location is perfect. We didn't have to worry about parking and the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. I definitely recommend to stay at The Bay.

Fair 4.0
Byron Bay Room Clean
No locks or chains inside door to give privacy. Someone unlocked our room and opened the door as we were going to bed at 11.00pm. The room will only be cleaned between 10 and 11 am if you hang the sign on the door to do so. The room was noisy with people coming and going until 2.30am. (Byron Bay) Back gate security was not working. Mould on the shower floor should be cleaned
