Main Beach Apartments

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

These apartments are a little dated but you couldn’t wish for a better location. Free parking on site and a 1 minute walk to the beach. Unfortunately no WiFi in the apartment but the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils etc.

Stayed at this place over the Splendor in the Grass weekend and was totally disappointed. Less than basic and the decor had less life than a corpse. And the price was super expensive 😡😡 Then one saving grace, it is well located to cafes and shops.

Stayed with a group of friends in two apartments for two nights during school holidays. At $380 per night it was a little expensive for the quality of the fit out but for an apartment within easy walking distance to the beach and with water views and in the school holidays I guess it was good value. The apartments back on to a reserve that backs on to the beach. Perfect spot. We had 22 on the top floor so great views from the balcony. Our friends were in No 24 on the middle floor. While not a particularly flashy place it was comfortable enough and had most things we needed. Our unit had a great sized shower but no laundry. No 24 had a little shower but laundry facilities in the bathroom. No 22 had carpet in the lounge dining area, No 24 had tiles throughout the living room. Plenty of positives - big white towels, great water pressure, big King size comfortable bed in main bedroom with the balcony overlooking the park and beach, good quality appliances, clean and tidy, undercover parking, basic kitchen supplies - tea/coffee, detergent, tea towel etc., air con in main bedroom and living room. Down sides were some obvious signs of age, no hanging space in main bedroom (hot water service is in the cupboard) and the mats on the balcony held water and were slippery on the tiles (I put them up on to the air con box after I slipped over twice - ouch). Reception is at Waves Byron Bay - a 4 star hotel just down the road. Staff there were lovely. Went the extra mile and were so friendly and genuine. Went for some lovely walks along the beaches, through town and up to the lighthouse. Great pizza just across the road. Would stay here again.

For the $280pn , out of season,we were expecting a bit more. The apartment is is need of a total renovation, its a disgrace. A couple of websites stated there is WiFi, for this price there should be,however, there is no WiFi. The TV has no cable channels and there is no A/C in the bedrooms. Finally the apartment is infested with cockroaches,totally discussing. With the Byron Bay overpriced bars and restaurants couldn't wait to leave . Will never go back. There are plenty of places up and down the coast better value than Byron Bay.

When you first look at apartment building you wonder what you have let yourself in for but once inside you are pleasantly surprised! Fantastic location, glimpses of water (Apt 24), nice balcony and partially renovated. Kitchen and bathroom could definitely do with an upgrade but kitchen well stocked. Clean, quiet and would stay there again. If you want basic accommodation but great location then stay here as good value for what you pay.

We booked late so we did get stuck with expensive accommodation. It was a really nice place though. We stayed at the apartments and it was a 2 minute walk to the beach. I would say it could be closer to the actual centre but it's like a 5 minute walk so it really doesn't make a difference. The apartment was clean enough and the beds were some of the most comfortable I've ever slept on. The kitchen was fully equipped. We had a lovely balcony, tv included and even undercover parking for our car. I think you can get the same for cheaper but there's no denying it was a nice place to stay. Being an apartment we were left to ourselves and didn't have room service but we didn't mind to much as we had more privacy than a hotel.
