2 night stop-over
Weather was superb and the location of the motel was great. Everything we wanted to do and see was close by and easy to locate. People running the motel were friendly even the cleaners.

8/10 Very good

Byron Bay classic
He accommodation is very well positioned and close to the middle of town and across the road from the beach. The exterior looks dated but the room was recently renovated very clean and a good size. It was also the cheapest available. The only down side is the carpark. We had a large Ute and it was a very snug fit and a challenge to get out. It was resolved quickly and easily but just be aware.

Best simple location and value in Byron
Yep, the location would have to be the best in Byron outside the $500 a night resorts. Bang on the beach. 50m to the water, the pub, great restaurants, and everything. Clean comfortable rooms with just enough amenities, the friendliest staff, nothing is too much, they treat you like royalty, Ok its a motel but for the price its brilliant, and free onsite parking in the heart of Byron, thats gold by itself. Only problem is the noisy nightly and early morning bin emptying, glass smashing, garbage truck noise that invades every space at any hour, but nothing the venue can do about that so take it on the chin. Stay here. Its the best spot with great service in a good room at a good price

Friendly and welcoming managers. The room was spotless. Position is perfect. Across the road from the beach and in the middle of the action. You would think you would hear noise from the pub a couple of doors down but no the rooms quiet. Great stay. Thank you
