Our room on level 3 had a great view of the river and the pool with a balcony. The hotel is central to everything, shops, cafes and restaurants. Buffet breakfast was hot and delicious. We requested a bucket of ice and it arrived within a few minutes, which was terrific. We parked on the street as $12.50 a night for parking was a bit excessive, but plenty of parking available. We would definitely stay here again.

Room tip: Rooms on level 3 or 4 are the best for river views

Stayed in waterfront apartment 605 - didn't get much sleep as a generator outside was on 24hrs and extremely loud. Had to buy ear plugs just to get a little sleep. No air-conditioning in bedrooms so need to open windows for air but then generator is blaring so hence the ear plugs. Apartment is big but a little tired looking and ancient tv's that need replacing. Ordered food from room service and the food was very good. If you like your sleep don't stop in this apartment.

Stayed here for one night en route back to Sydney from Byron Bay. Hotel enjoys a wonderful location along the Hastings river and the bar/lounge/restaurant has picturesque views whilst relaxing over a drink or meal. Staff here are a true ace in the pack offering local knowledge, professionalism and a real personal touch. This includes everyone from the welcoming receptionist to the efficient bar staff. Our room had a fine view over the river with balcony. Food in the bar grill is excellent and tasty and reasonably priced. One negative for me was the charge for parking of over twelve dollars per night, which was, in my opinion, excessive. Having said that, it is what it is and I would heartily recommend this hotel in the beautiful town.

I stayed here recently in a King lead in room. Whilst the bed was comfortable and the room clean, it is very tired and the bathrooms odour was very strong. On top of that every morning at 5:15 outside my window the Pub next door’s garbage was being picked up on a Saturday and Sunday morning.

The breakfast was great but their could have been table service for coffee and tea.

We had a conference on The Saturday where the food and service was fabulous .

In conclusion the rooms are a let down for the hotel.
