Wow! Super quiet, well appointed motel just a few meters from the beach... We only stayed one night on our way North from Port Macquarie but it was well worth it. And we had a superb meal at Pizza Paradiso, a lovely Italian Restaurant just up the road

We had booked into a smaller room but were offered a larger room for an additionsl $25 per night when we arrived which we took & were so happy we did.

Thank you for your kind comments about your stay with us. The studio rooms are much larger than the smaller economy rooms hence the reason we offer one if it is available, so that you can choose on arrival. We understand that the sign is not appropriate when you do clean up after use - however, without the sign most... More

Tallow Beach motel is lovely in winter - walking along the beach to Broken Head we saw dolphins swimming in the waves. The motel is very friendly and welcoming with a lovely garden, blue pool and buddhas to greet you, a lovely escape from the city.

A quiet part of Byron precincts. No glitz & glamour just relaxing. Enjoyed cooking my own meals & loved the peaceful sounds of ocean & palm leaves. The windows with slatted glass reminded me of my childhood. The sunroom was indeed very sunny.

Very pleasant 5 days. Sue and Rosemary welcoming. Beach is a minute's walk away and expansive. Lovely sunroom and Tallow suite has good kitchen and large lounge. No steps and secluded. Can park right outside door.

The room was in great condition, location is fantastic. In a quiet neighbourhood, yet still close to town. Would I recommend this motel? Yes, everything mentioned on their website is accurate. I never got to the pool since the beach was right along a short path.
