“Perfect wedding night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2010

We recently spent our wedding night at "Victoria's" -it was recommended to us by a couple of local people who were involved in our beautiful beach wedding and we are so glad that we chose to stay there
Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by Victoria who showed us around the grounds and the house and to our executicive spa room [we were very grateful for the updgrade!]
The room was beautifully furnished in the French Provincial style -fabulous spa bath and great bathroom with beautiful towels and gorgeous complimentary products-we loved the coconut fragrance!
We very much enjoyed the amazing breakfast prepared by Victoria -gorgeous food and beautifully presented -she made us feel very special!
We can't wait to go back to celebrate our 1st anniversary!

I was looking for somewhere special to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. I chose Victoria's and i'm glad i did!
Upon arrival we were greeted by Victoria , who was both friendly and helpful.
We were shown through the main house and grounds which featured beautifully manicured gardens and wonderful views of Byron Bay.
We stayed in an Executive Spa Room which was immaculate, with impeccable attention to detail. We especially enjoyed the champagne breakfast prepared by Victoria herself!
We wished we could have stayed longer.
We highly reccomend Victoria's if your after something special, for a romantic escape.

We had a great time,

Peter & Sarah

We spent one night in 'The Stables' at Victoria's. The positives of this place are that the grounds are beautiful, with gorgeous views, and a very quiet and relaxed feel. Victoria met us and was very warm and accomodating, and also served a lovely breakfast, so I cannot fault the service. You also have use of the house, with lovely touches like complementary cakes, an honesty bar, and port in the rooms.
As for the room, 'The Stables' has a very very steep staircase so wouldn't be suitable for children or anyone who wasn't very mobile, and I was nervous going up and down them, especially at night. The bathroom was very small (the sink was so small you can't really use it, and can't fill the kettle from it - we had to use the shower) and the room itself, while very spacious, was a bit tired with some stains on the carpet. The bathroom was also quite old. It was all very clean though. I did think it was a little overpriced too at $300 for a night, and $35pp for breakfast. However, this may reflect the prices in Byron generally.
From the glowing reviews, I expect that the other rooms may have been better. Don't get me wrong, a lovely place, but I think that the 5 star rating refers to the grounds and service rather than the rooms.

VAEByronBay, Owner/Manager at Victoria's at Ewingsdale, responded to this review, 22 November 2009
Victoria’s is predominantly a couples’ retreat and therefore most of our accommodation is not suitable for families. This is stated in all of our literature.

These guests emailed an enquiry prior to their booking and were informed of a room that would be able to cater for a couple travelling with a young child. They chose not to book the recommended room, but instead made a booking for 2 adults online for the “Stables”. The “Stables” is advertised as being an “upstairs attic style room, with a steep staircase similar to that on a yacht, and has a small downstairs ensuite”.

Had these guests let it be known at check in, that they were not happy with the room they had booked, we would have promptly addressed their concerns at the time.

We have an accredited 5 star ‘guest house’ rating, which applies to the overall property, including our rooms.

We do appreciate comments from our guests, as we use this valuable feedback for making changes and improvements to our facilities and services, but negative reviews only tarnish the reputation, that we have strived to acheive and maintain.

We only had one night so wanted top quality at a fair price midweek. As we are in the accommodation business we know what we want when we go away. We selected Victoria's as it had an excellent reputation on the coast, a superb public profile and our telephone enquiries were warmly and professionally dealt with by Victoria herself.
When we arrived, to be greeted by Victoria who owns and runs two main properties together with her other business interests, we were simply blown away, especially as Victoria took the time to show us through all the property and a good sample of rooms. The property is magnificent. Huge yet warm and comfortable guest areas/lounges, plenty of outdoor seating ensuring privacy plus superb views and extremely comfortable rooms with everything one needs for a special getaway with one's partner. Cleanliness was A100%+++.
With other friends who run 4.5 and 5 star rated properties we can recommend this accommodation to anyone who is serious about wanting top value for money, warm yet discrete hospitality and oh - the breakfast was to die for!
If you want Byron Bay - then this is a must!
We cannot wait to try Victoria's other place at Watego's.

I was there with my other half for 3 nights recently, and everything was just perfect - I can only agree wholeheartedly with the other positive reviews.

We were personally greeted by Victoria and given a guided tour of the property and the facilities, and a history of how it all came to be. Our room (8) was huge, beautifully decorated in French provincial style, extremely comfortable, and with breathtaking views across to Byron Bay. The breakfast was perfect,the staff attentive and it would be difficult to find fault in this absolutely luxurious property.

I make a habit to read the property reviews before booking, then again after the visit to see how my experience compared with my expectations. As for the one very negative review (champ23 of Adelaide) , a reasonable person could only guess that nothing could have or would have satisfied the writer.

My partner and I decided at the last minute to get out of Sydney for the weekend so got online and booked flights to Ballina,then found Victoria's at Ewingsdale which had a good deal going,never having been to Byron before we had no idea where was a good place to stay,fortunately we struck it lucky.
After picking up our hire car we headed to Victoria's,we arrived early and were warmly welcomed and taken to our room, which was really beautiful,especially the king bed covered in heaps of snuggly white pillows,we were then shown arround the property,I had no idea it was so big,the setting is amazing with gardens that are obviously well cared for.
There were freshly baked brownies in the kitchen which we couldnt resist,that night we had a BBQ by the pool,then went back to our room for a spa.
Breakfast was served on our balcony over looking the garden with a surprise glasss of champange,great start to the day !after which we booked a massage in our room,this was just what we needed.
Byron has so many amazing places to eat and we certainly enjoyed exploring,the best thing was returning to Victoria's after dinner and enjoying a glass of wine in front of the open fireplace -Just perfect !
What a great weekend,a real gem,so glad we discovered such a truely lovely place!
Sadly back to Sydney and work,but we will be back.
Oh and thankyou for the brownie recipe I wont tell a sole.

We have always travelled to Byron for our weekends day trips, being just over an hour from the Gold Coast. On our way homeone Sunday arvo we decided to call in at Victorias at Ewingsdale....which we had heard about from some of our closest friends.
When we arrived for a quick look we were taken back by the amazing entrance and manicured grounds. AS we had just dropped in for an inspection we were greeted by Julie who showed us around the property including the different rooms and packages that were available. WE mentioned we wanted to come down for our weeding anniversay which was on the June long weekend. Julie recommended we have look at taking the "Romance Package" when we come for our weekend stay.We booked our stay while we were there.
When we arrived on the Friday afternoon from the Gold Coast we were again greeted by Julie who introduced us to the owner Victoria, they both made us feel so welcome.
Our room had a beautiful balcony which had a view to the lighthouse and the ocean. The room was extremely well appointed and the king size bed was to die for.
The Romance Package that Julie suggested we have was just the most perfect way to celebrate our wedding anniversary.... the candle lit room , rose petal bath, chocolate fondu with fresh strawberries and the champagne. We can both recommend this highly.
The breakfasts were unbelievable .....no menu just tell them what you feel like and they will prepare it. The staff were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble.
Victorias was perfect place for our special weekend. Thank you Julie for making it so special and "Yes" we will be back.
I can highly recommend it .
Thanks from G & A
