The lady on the desk was just delightful. She was so helpful and understanding that I was running late because of traffic on the M1. The room was immaculate and they provided me with a lovely firm mattress and a downstairs room because I have a bad back. There is also a microwave, toaster and kettle. The motel is minutes from the Main Street which is so confident and The 24 hour SPAR ( grocery shop) to there to buy essentials etc. The only problem though small considering the motel was so nice is that it was very noisey with people coming home late at night. I suggest just taking ear plugs and then the motel would get a 10/10 as everything else was perfect..

Hi and thank you for taking your time to review us at the Bay Motel. Yes it can be very busy on week ends and obviously with the people comes the noise. We are so happy you found our rooms lovely and clean and yes we are in a super location. Hopefully see you again - try us during the week - it is definitely quieter in Byron. Take care. Kind regards, Michele and Mike

Although location is well situated in town centre and opposite beach, it was very noisey - especially the garbage trucks working very loudly prior to 6:30am each morning during our stay.

Hi C & T, We are so sorry you had a noisy stay with us. Unfortunately we can't control the garbage trucks and they need to access the lane way at the rear to empty the bins. They usually run at between 6.30-7am every second day. Next time you visit please request a room near the front of the property and this may help with any noise issues you had. Thanks again for staying with us and taking your time to comment, we certainly hope everything else was enjoyable. Take care. Kind regards, Michele
