Best Places To Stay In Byron

by jeffa79 Online Now Nov 3, 2006 at 3:03 AM

My girlfriend and I are spending about 6 nights in Byron in early-mid December and are looking for suggestions on good places to stay in the area, well located and not too expensive (we are travelling for around a month so budget is pretty important).

Any suggestions on budget hotels for the area? Ideally we would be looking to pay around AUS$130-150 per night but obviously this would change depending on what we could get.

Please advise us on the best places to stay in the area.

Many thanks,
Jeff

    Hi Jeff,
    what kind of accommodation are you looking for? (youth hostel, 1-5 star hotel)? A double room in a youth hostal costs you about AUD 40.-

    cheers, Jacqueline

    Hi Byron Bay is a popular destination and they know how to charge for accommodation. You will be on the edge of school holidays and christmas, expect to pay close to top price. We stayed there in Sept and paid150 a night, but there are cheaper places. I recommend you use some of rhe web accommodation pages such as tripadvisor, needtoescape.com etc etc. Also page through VT

    There's a couple of really nice backpacker hostels in Byron Bay - check them out via google.

    If you google "Byron bay accommodation" there are numeous websites that offer accommodation just in Byron Bay.
    I recently stayed at the Lord Byron Resort in an apartment and it was disgusting. I don't reccommend that place at all.

    We stayed there many years ago and it was really nice! I guess everything decays!

    I think the standard rooms in the main building are alright, I didn't see those ones, but we had an apartment for 5 people and it was so old, the walls had holes and dents in them. Some had been covered up with plaster, but not repainted and the tiled floor turned our feet black within the first hour!
    There were no extras in the bathroom, like shower caps, little soaps and facecloths. We had one little soap and one facecloth between us!
    It was just very old and no work had been done to it.
    And if you can't take the stairs, there is only 1 apartment on the ground floor.
    We were lucky to get that one with my knee!

    We stayed there about 16 years ago! Girlfriend and I used to play golf and scuba dive - those were in the good old days - before Byron got too trendy.

    Thanks for the info. By the way, what was the name of the place you stayed in in Byron for150 per night? This sounds like the sort of place we would consider.

    Cheers,
    Jeff
