Stayed in the guest house in room 2 for 3 nights. They place is well renovated but they take the minimum in the minimalistic to the extreme. The fittings in the bathroom are lacking with just two robe hooks to hang towels and hand towels. No soap holders in the shower an the basin is too big for the vanity...

This motel has relatively recently changed names, which I hope is a sign of an upcoming revamp, because currently it's not great. The room had seen better days. The bed cover had a small stain on arrival, and the bathroom periodically smelled badly of odors from waste pipes or the septic tank or similar. The WiFi was quite slow and...

Stayed at Flamingo for 3 nights on a weekend away with my friend. The lady who checked us in and other staff we spoke to were friendly and helpful. Our room was basic, neat and clean. We booked the queen single suite so it had two beds. Beds were comfortable, linen was spotless. The bathroom could have been a bit...

Stayed here for one night, booked 2 motel rooms and I was expecting to not be overly impressed but thought it would be fine for a night. Couldn't have been more impressed. The rooms were a good size, clean and recently refurbished. Check in staff were really pleasant and helpful. Easy 10 minute walk into the town or you can...

Loved this place to bits. This was our first time staying at a motel and i have to say i came away impressed. This place truly captures the essence of Byron bay. Comfy cosy and relaxed . Its walkable to and from the city centre . But the highlight is the staff Felicity and her team ( all girls btw)....

We were booked in the Flamingo house in a lovely room, however we were then bumped down to a motel room in the flamingo motel section due to a mysterious carpet issue? Motel room was okay, big and had a pretty comfortable bed. Hasn't been renovated in a while by the looks of it. Good motel room, but much would...

Also known as Flamingos, we stayed here last week as a couple and were very impressed. For a great price, we had a very comfortable and quiet nights sleep. Bed was super comfy and while this is an older style motel it has been revamped very stylishly to bring it up to a very modern and swish style with great...
