Dragan, au4 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
It's a basic hotel that's expensive and very noisy at night and early in the morning. Not much sleep was had.

Great place to stay and value for money
We loved our stay at the Bay Beach Motel, the staff were friendly and the beds comfortable. It's well located and surfing beach is just across the road. Our only complaint was how bad the lighting was in the room, we had to move the lamp near the mirror to see when I was applying makeup and when my husband shaved and it was still dim.
Suzanne, au2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Affordable luxury in central location
This affordable hidden gem situated in a quiet nook of central Byron Bay is all about simplicity and location. A short stroll to Johnson Street and the whole boutique/cafe set, Bay Beach Motel is the perfect place to stay if you’re on a budget but want quick and easy access to all the Bay has to offer. The rooms are humble but clean and comfortable. Rooms are cleaned daily and although the pool is small, the area is bright and pleasant and a great way to escape the buzz and recharge the batteries. My go-to stay in Byron for sure!
