Reviewed 9 August 2014

I visited Byron for my birthday weekend and stayed at Bayhaven Lodge. The lodge is beautiful, immaculately kept and gorgeously decorated. It’s the perfect location, right in the centre of Byron without being too close to the bars so it was really nice and peaceful.

It’s a two minute walk to the beach and town which is great for early morning beach runs and walking distance to some awesome surf spots.

The staff Summer and Garry were super helpful and attentive, they made sure we had everything we needed and were always reachable if we had any queries. The hot tub out the back is lovely too, so relaxing.

All in all a perfect weekend I would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Byron they stay at Bayhaven Lodge

We had a lovely stay here and I would recommend it for couples. The outdoor spa is a lovely addition to the guest house. The location is excellent as you can reach the heart of Byron in about 5 mins by foot. The guest house is finished to a very high standard and is excellent value for money all round.

Bayhaven Lodge offers a great location to stay in Byron Bay that is reasonably priced. You can walk into the centre of Byron in just a few minutes and there is plenty of on-road unlimited parking in the immediate vicinity (on site parking is available for some of the rooms). The Lodge is nice and quiet and the fittings/furnishings are of a high quality. The room and Lodge were very clean. We stayed in a garden view room which was not a spacious sized room but it was well appointed and more than ample sized for our two night stay. Free WIFI was also available. We would recommend this accommodation for both price, comfort and location.

Hi Jonathan_Nicola, thanks very much for sharing your experiences with the rest of the world. The location in regards to township is one of the most highlighted feedbacks we get, as guests are surprised on how close we are. Thank you for highlighting our parking arrangements. With the Deluxe and Garden Suites we offer on-street parking, with the Superior and Grand suites we do offer off street parking. If you have any questions phone us direct. We do hope to see you again soon

Kind Regards

The rooms were modern and very comfortable. The location was great as it was close to everything, literally within walking distance of the best Byron has to offer. My Mother & I had been able to experience the best of Byron with thanks to the on-site owners of Bayhaven Lodge who sat down and explained where to go as well as the best spots usually kept on the lowdown.

Overall a great experience, if I had to pin-point on thing I could report being unhappy with it would only have to be the Wi-Fi connection at the time, which I'm sure is an easy fix.

Thank you Bayhaven Lodge and see you again soon!

Stayed for 3 nights with my husband for my Birthday. Located on a quiet street only a few hundred metres walk from the main restaurants, bars and shops. Rooms are really well presented and have everything you need. Gary checked us in and gave us loads of info on things to see and do. Try Fish Heads for seafood or Il Buco for Italian! Would recommend Bayhaven Lodge for couples :-)

Amazing place to stay! My sister & I booked in for a couple of nights on our way up the coast. The rooms were beautifully laid out & had every thing we needed. The staff couldn't do enough & were constantly on hand for all our needs. It is perfectly situated close to both the shops & beach. I would definitely recommend this hotel & will return again!

Second time at the Bayhaven. Great location close to city center and beach, nice rooms, easy street parking. The only downsides were the cost and if there are other guests it can get quite noisy. If you can find a special rate on Wotif then this is a great deal.

I ended up getting very sick during this visit and was bedridden for two days, staying one unplanned day at the bayhaven. Summer was very helpful in terms of accommodating my needs and helping me out. Thank you Summer!

Cheers,

JJ
