“Should have stay longer !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

Of all the places (hotels, apartments etc) my partner and I stayed traveling down the east coast this was by far my favourite place. Diane is a brilliant host and while we booked through booking.com and hadn't realised that the bathroom was seperate, Diane upgraded us at a really reasonable price to the turtle room. The bed is probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. There is something so unique about this house that makes you feel at home. The room and house is so so clean and comfortable. The use of the bikes was excellent. Only regret was not staying longer. Loved this house.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

As a mature couple , we didn't want to be in the heart of chaos in Byron Bay and luckily found Arcadia House, a 100 year old restored guest house which is only 5 mins away from everything but is so peaceful and charming. We had the Beachcomber room which was lovely - fabulous double shower , freshly renovated, sofa for relaxing plus wifi . The room was light and opened onto the verandah which had wicker furniture begging to be used.
Comfy bed , aircon, and access to fridge , we couldn't have been more comfortable.
Loved the ambience of Arcadia House , and the access to town being so easy , either walking or by bike or car. We would love to return as it was well run by Dianne, clean and cozy, and felt like a home away from home!

Room Tip: Loved the Beachcomber room which opened directly onto the charming verandah and was light and airy.

We had a fantastic stay at Arcardia. The house is beautiful and staff were very friendly. The room was clean and the whole property was well maintained. Would definitely stay there again if visiting Byron Bay. Well placed to walk to the town centre and free bike available too.

Room Tip: From glancing in all the rooms...they all look beautiful

Arcadia House is well located in my opinion - it's not in the absolute centre of Byron Bay town, a 5 to 10 minute walk is just right for me. That means that it is quiet, too. The room proportions are generous, there are lots of lounge chairs on the verandah that invite you to relax, the atmosphere is calm. We used the house bikes to pootle around to cafes and the beach. It was a very laid back stay. We had the Cockatoo Room, the smallest; comfortable, but the others were even better.

We live in the Northern Rivers area and visit Byron quite regularly and so have stayed in a few place and this is one of the best. The location is quiet but convenient for a walk to the town centre. The bed was very comfortable and the verandah is perfect for lazing on in the afternoon. The whole place was very clean and well cared for and the manager, Dianne, is very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Cockatoo Room which has a separate bathroom (down the corridor) and will stay again but will probably book an en suite next time.

Room Tip: Choose an en suite room if you don't want to make a trip down the corridor to use the loo during...

We stayed there for 2 nights, in 2 different rooms (the Cockatoo, and the Beachcomber).
We loved the style of the house, everything was pristine, very clean, luminous and intimate. The Cockatoo room is separte from the bathroom but it wasn't a problem. The location is convenient: walking distance to the center, yet in a quiet area. It's a great place to read a book, and relax after the beach or before a night out. Diane the host is very friendly, and helpful, specially when I didn't book at the right dates and had to change (hence why we stayed in 2 different rooms). There is a great cafe very close to the house that is a must-do.
An option for improvement would be to include breakfast in the price.
We will definitely go back for a WE there.
