Stayed here for one night, booked 2 motel rooms and I was expecting to not be overly impressed but thought it would be fine for a night. Couldn't have been more impressed. The rooms were a good size, clean and recently refurbished. Check in staff were really pleasant and helpful. Easy 10 minute walk into the town or you can...

Loved this place to bits. This was our first time staying at a motel and i have to say i came away impressed. This place truly captures the essence of Byron bay. Comfy cosy and relaxed . Its walkable to and from the city centre . But the highlight is the staff Felicity and her team ( all girls btw)....

We were booked in the Flamingo house in a lovely room, however we were then bumped down to a motel room in the flamingo motel section due to a mysterious carpet issue? Motel room was okay, big and had a pretty comfortable bed. Hasn't been renovated in a while by the looks of it. Good motel room, but much would...

Also known as Flamingos, we stayed here last week as a couple and were very impressed. For a great price, we had a very comfortable and quiet nights sleep. Bed was super comfy and while this is an older style motel it has been revamped very stylishly to bring it up to a very modern and swish style with great...

Staff were more then accommodating with our late arrival due to traffic from the gold coast and time zone switch. Room was very nice. Water pressure was great. Nice spacious shower. Also left us put some milk for coffee.

We have nothing but the best to say about this place. We stayed here for five nights with our two young children (3 and 5). The staff were just so friendly, the location is an easy walk to the beach, and the rooms are spotless. It is a really great value and such a great experience!

We stayed at the Dolphins for two nights only. It was very pleasant and the staff were helpful. The rooms are good size and beds are comfy. Great hot shower and very clean. Walking distance to town. 10 min only. Great coffee next door. Apart from the wire dining chairs which were quite uncomfortable and left marks on our legs...

Nice service and kindly staff. Walking distance to town. Kitchen facilities adequate for a longer stay. A little bit too noisy, we had the room close to the main road, Lack of products in bathroom: soap, shampoo, conditioner. Good value for money.

The receptionist said there were no queen rooms available and initially offered us a triple room at extra cost. We evidently looked a little dismayed at the thought of paying a higher rate, when she suggested the guest house. It was a gem. There are four(?) rooms upstairs , each with private en suite, and separate key. A huge kitchen...

Location - convenient bikeride into town or 2 mins in car. On main road into the suburbs but no real traffic noise Style - I like what they have done to update an old motor inn. The tropical feel & pop of colour on the doors really work with the location. Picnic table and lawn area are nice. Service -...
