We were extreme disappointed with the Hibiscus motel. The WAVES resort next door has taken over management for the motel and their response to any issues was that they had little idea about the place. We discovered there was no servicing of the rooms although it wasn't an apartment. We requested a service after 4 days and were told it...

Our family of 3 stayed for 2 nights while visiting Byron Bay. The staff is super friendly and the room was nice and clean. We enjoyed our stay a lot! Hibiscus motel is close to the Main beach, bus station, information center, restaurants and shops. It's a little walk to the supermarket though, but it is not far. We got...

Location is awesome. Staff are lovely. So clean and tidy. I was very impressed. Only problem was we had some teenage girls staying on the room next door who were coming and going, slamming their door and yahooing and screaming until well after midnight.

For the first time in my life I read reviews before booking. I was going to book Atlantic, which more more expensive. But was drawn to Hibiscus. I was treated like a prince. Nothing was to much trouble. I felt safe. The motel is so clean. I would return. Great value for money . Del Oxford

Great Motel in a great location. Close to all restaurants, shops and beach. Great for families or singles. Neat and clean rooms with extremely friendly staff. Would definitely recommend the Hibiscus if staying in Bryon Bay.

The Hibiscus Motel is in a terrific location, tucked in the middle of the main district of restaurants and shops and is only a block away from the beach. The rooms are not very large, but were clean and modern. My room included a kitchenette with a sink, microwave, water pot, and cups/utensils, great for morning tea/coffee (provided) and reheating...

We booked 2 nights last minute at the Hibiscus Motel and were so happy with our room we booked a 3rd! The hotel might not look like much from the outside but the inside was perfect! Updated and very clean. The location can't be beat! Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shops. Free parking. What more can you ask...

This is our second year in a row staying at the Hibiscus. It has a fantastic location near the top end of Jonson Street and is a couple of minutes walk from the beach. The rooms are spotlessly clean and have a little kitchenette with fridge and microwave. The air conditioning is ice cold. There is off street parking, and...

Checked into this little gem for two nights - our first visit to Byron Bay. The room was compact to say the least - open the front door and there is the double bed in front of you - but it had everything - a microwave, mini kitchen, plates, cutlery and a small fridge. The room was well decorated and...
