Waves is a great place to stay. It is so close to the centre of Byron Bay. The room is clean and modern. The staff are always helpful and friendly. The complimentary muffins & coffee for breakfast is a bonus! I've stayed at Waves 3 times. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I thought for the price that the room was pretty basic.
