I found Tallow Beach Motel to be one of the secrets of Byron Bay. It is located right opposite the beach and within an easy stroll of the village cafés. The gem is the lovely swimming pool the motel offers, surrounded by lawn and a beautiful garden oasis. I witnessed some beautiful bird life and relaxed to the sounds of the ocean. The owner is friendly and knowledgeable and recommended some great local attractions and restaurants to visit during our stay. We had a truly enjoyable time and will return again!

We stayed as a couple and wanted somewhere peaceful, basic and out of the bustle of byron. This was ideal, Lovely welcoming staff, cute pool area, clean rooms - with a kind of older bali ratan feel to them, tea coffee, firidge and even basic cooking facilities. Short walk to supermarket, bakery, pub and an even shorter walk to the beautiful beach. Taxi's 20 bucks to Byron.
If you want new and modern and nighlife then don't stay but if you like quirky, clean, relaxing place out of the hustle and bustle where you can chill and listen to the wildlife and be seconds from the beach where you meet so many smily happy people and dogs, then stay here. It's lovely, and it's relaxing.

This motel was easy going and right across the road from the most amazing beach you have ever seen! Every morning we would wonder over and be there for hours- at lunch time we would walk back to the room, make up sandwiches and eat them by the balinese inspired pool area (which is absolutely lovely!). The atmosphere at the motel is relaxed and easy going and both the staff members we met were just delightful. I will be back next year for sure!

We stayed here for five nights at an exorbitant rate, because it was Easter and the last place we could find three months prior. It is at least a ten minute drive from Byron in holiday traffic at 50kmh, which is ridiculous but anyway... The rooms had a small kitchenette, a sunroom with a single bed and two chairs and small breakfast table. Decor is dated but clean enough. Ready for an update or refurbishment. The pool area is great and secluded. Quite and safe area except morning alarms being snoozed every 15mins!. Beach is close and allows dogs. The smell in the room doesn't really leave even with airing. No laundry near by and $10 a load in Byron. Not much drying space provided either. Walking distance is a general store, chemist, pub and cafe.

Room Tip: Number seven next to pool
