3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I recently stayed here for a couple of nights and cannot rate it enough. The Motel is extremely clean, situated in a great location but not too noisy and is perfect if you want to be in the centre of everything. The lady that has just taken this Motel over was very friendly, very helpful and it was a pleasure to stay there. We will definitely be returning to this Motel in the future.

We stayed one night here on the way up the coast. The Motel is in a lovely location on the beach. We had a lovely welcome in reception. Check in was fast. Room was large and clean. Bed consisted of two singles pushed together which was nice and big. Had a nice sofa in the room and a big tv. Had a kitchenette with kettle toaster etc only slightly odd thing was that we didn't have a sink in the kitchen so washed up in the bathroom sink instead. Shower was nice and bathroom a nice size. Had a comfy night and would definitely return if in Byron Bay again.

Stayed at the Bay Motel on Friday. Found it to be very clean and tidy and close to all amenities with the beach opposite. I found the Managers Rod and Sarah to be very friendly and helpful. Don't normally bother writhing these but I thought when you get exceptional service it should be noted. Be visiting again for sure.

Rod and Sarah are fantastic,so helpful and very friendly. Room was very clean and tidy, great position walk to beach park and restaurants. Sarah even told us good places to eat . Would definitely recommend staying here.We will be back.

I stayed at the Bay Motel for 7 nights. I loved it. Right across the road from the beach and park and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. You have access to the back lane which literally brings you to cafes for breaky, lunch or dinner. Rooms have been updated and are very comfortable and clean. Sarah and Rod are lovely and very accommodating. I would definitely return. Thanks for a great week guys! Only downfall... noise. Considering location however, it is what it is. I would still return!

Beautiful beach front location right next to the beach hotel. Great service! Great family feel. So close to everything Byron has to offer. Service was great. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

We were greeted by a friendly lady who works at the Motel. She was most helpful in sorting our room as we had a small fridge leak which she sorted straight away. The motel had parking for our car, it was a bright clean modern room. Perfect location for the beach and great for other amenities such as food and drinks! Would definitely recommend this place for anyone staying in Byron Bay.

Sarah and Rod are great. Awesome locale. Updated rooms. Easy stumber back from the bars and restaurants. Why stay any where else? I lead groups of learning disabled adults from the USA. If the hotel was bigger I'd take them here. Unfortunately, the place is the perfect size unless you're with a huge group.

we only stayed for two nights during our long drive down the East Coast of Australia Not a very imposing looking building entrance..but..the motel is right opposite the beach....which is lovely . Only round the corner is the main street with bars and restaurants shops,mainly geared up for the younger 'hippy' element who are attracted to Byron Bay for the surfing .Next door to the motel is the largest and busiest pub /club in the area...which gets packed each night.Loud music,sometimes ear splitting ..but once in our room,we didnt get disturbed by it. AS still seems so strange that everything closes so early ...too late for a meal at just before ten had to have a kebab from the stall...and VERY nice it was too . A drive to the Lighthouse is a 'must' lovely scenic views.Our room was comfy and modern and all amenities spotless.Highly recommended.!!
