Our time in Byron was enhanced have staying at the Byron Bay Guesthouse.
Due to no ones fault (we didn't have access to WiFi) we missed out on getting a lift down to the Guesthouse, and that was our only negative during our stay.
When we did eventually arrive we were greeted by Peter, sitting in his armchair, and after showing us to our room and giving us time to settle in we were offered a lift up to the supermarket by Peter himself, who then sat outside whilst we ran about inside attempting to not keep Jim waiting. When we did get back in the car he was full of the joys of spring and carried on chatting to us and giving us the history and attractions of Byron.
This is testament to Peter and his staff as on the day we left, he was away to visit his niece who had recently given birth, he arranged with Dharma, who maintains the GuestHouse, and with whom we had not met, for a lift to the bus stop, again I cannot say enough about how friendly and genuine he was.
If we do find the time to visit Byron again you can rest assured that we will definitely be spending time there again.
A nicer place / people you will not meet.
