3 is "Average" and 4 is "Very Good", but this motel is neither! It is certainly better than "Average" but is not "Very Good". I would call it "Good". The location is excellent, in particular the proximity to a fabulous beach that does not have the Byron bay hoards on it. The street is quiet and the rooms are private, with a lovely tropical garden garden to look at. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was adequate. The person we dealt with was friendly and helpful.
However, the room was dusty and the floors and curtains needed a good vacuum cleaning. Particularly irritating was an electronic beeping noise that started around 11.30 pm, or thereabouts, and went on continuously for several hours. It seemed to be coming from outside the room.
The motel is 6 kilometres from the centre of Byron Bay and this may be an issue for people who like to be closer to the action! (But, this isn't the case for us!)
As for the big question - would we stay there again? Yes, provided the negatives were fixed!
