Great location opposite the beach and out of the hurly burly of main part of Byron Bay, but only a 5 minute drive into main beach. Has inground pool. Clean and well appointed. Air conditioning. Screened louvred windows. Little kitchenette with microwave,toaster, kettle. Would recommend for an old fashioned motel experience. Friendly staff.

Thank you for your review. Your description of the room you stayed in was very informative, it is helpful for other guests to make their decision. Where possible we will allocate studio rooms with a kitchenette and A/C however all rooms have T/C making facilities, microwave, ceiling fans etc. The screened louvred windows provide a nice flow of air.

Best place in all of New South Wales. The beach is just across the street through a clearing in the woods. Totally undeveloped, perfectly quiet and beautiful. Our room had thatched wallpaper and a sunny sitting room that looked out onto a garden of elephants ears and all sorts of tropical greenery. The lady who runs the place came around...

We stayed only one night here's do wished we could've stayed more. The motel is room was quirky, but very clean and comfortable. Right across the road to the beach, close to shops and cafes, approx 10mins from the Hub of Byron itself. The motel provides itself on being quiet, lovely little spot.

no stress booking. rooms looked like the photos. welcomed by a friendly rosemary for our stay. tasteful, peaceful. clean. close to beautiful tallow beach. all round balm for the soul. only bummer is they allow smokers to indulge too close to doorways and the smell wafts in. otherwise deeee-lightfull !

Glad to know that the photos were ok. thanks for your kind comments. We do try to encourage smokers not to smoke outside their door - there is plenty of room in the garden for them to chill out and relax. thanks for the reminder.

We stayed for one night only but nice, clean and comfortable room. Quiet location which was perfect and still only 5 mins to Byron. Recommend and would stay again. Bed was comfortable and parking handy to the rooms.

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. The rooms are lined with bamboo type effect on the walls & ceiling which gives it a very Balinese atmosphere .... relaxing. It's over the road from the gorgeous...

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...

Just south of Byron Bay this well priced motel is comfortable, clean and a hop, skip and a jump from the beach. There is also a convenience shop, a bakery and pub around the corner.

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.
