The property itself is small however clean, tidy and in a perfect location! At check in I was given a receipt that was $50 less than what I had paid through Wotif - this is the only disappointment which has lead to not booking through the website again.

Hello Guest The amount on your guest registration card on check in was the nett tariff which is less the commission, unfortunately our Guest Registration card always prints out the nett tariff. So if you add this amount showing and the commission this is the amout that you were charged and the correct tariff that you were quoted on line, we pay Expedia/Wotif this amount which is the commission. So it is very confusing but you have paid the correct amount. Regards Reservations at Hibiscus Byron Bay

Great position. For the rates charged, rooms should have been serviced daily. Our floor was constantly covered in sand.

Hi, Thanks for the review, indeed being so close to the beach always means guest travel in with sand which is unavoidable.

This hotel is on the heart of the action. So much so it had an effect on our sleep. Surrounded by back backers late night parties. An old hotel given a basic makeover. We felt we payed too much to stay hear. Clean but very basic.

Hi Craig, indeed as per the marketing, we are a Motel with excellent facilities in the heart of town. We are disappointed thought that there may have been a noise issue during your stay with us. This is something outside of your control if an adjoining property has an issue, but if we have been made aware of the problem, we could have sent our Security Guard across to address it.

It is what it is. Old style motel , close to the centre of town , but clean , great staff, and though pricey for what you get, it is Byron Bay..so guess not unexpected

The motel is fine in terms of the accommodation but there is a major issue with security. There are no staff on the premises. Administration is from a motel in the next street. People were driving in and out of the area where guest cars are parked raiding recycling bins for cans and bottles to cash in. Obviously they are a little on the desperate side. There are no security cameras watching the premises. There is only the occasional patrol visit. Of slight annoyance is that towels etc are only changed every 4 days, but you only learn this from fine print of a sheet inside the room. this was overcome by a walk around to the other motel who kindly supplied fresh bath linen.
