Bay Royal Apartments
Reviewed 15 November 2011

Clean, well designed, great location and views. Only issue can be the noise from the park/beachfront if people decide to party or play music in their cars. Worth staying all the same. We will be back.

Family of 6 stayed in room number 1 for 6 days. We all had a great time in Byron and in the apartment, we loved the fact the the apartments were so close to everything (literally across from the beach and 2 minute walk until you hit the main road!) however there were a few things that could have been improved upon our stay. The kitchen had many appliances but it was lacking in regular casserole dishes, so we had to improvise and we had to buy all of our food as the apartment didn't contain even the basics. There were also a few appliances that seemed as though they were not cleaned before we arrived. The rooms were very comfortable however the kids complained as they were woken in the morning due to the noise of others and although the windows in their rooms had blinds, a light that was situated right outside was kept on during the night. On our last two nights we were kept up by backpackers parked across the road (although there is a law that they are not allowed to be there during specific times) they were very rowdy and played music throughout the night and continuously smashed bottles on the road. I know this is not the apartments fault, it's just a heads up. The teenagers were forever entertained with everything that was on offer. The management supplies tennis rackets and balls for anyone to play with and there is a $2 movie hire at the reception which we used.
Altogether we had a great stay at these apartments except for the things I have mentioned. However, if we returned to Byron we would look for other places to stay.

We stayed at apartment no. 11. The charges are high for a non-serviced apartment.
The position is good but this apartment (not sure about others in the building) really needs updating. Very dark and not serviced unless you stay over one week. The bed linen (doona cover) is never changed from tenant to tenant I was told by one of the staff - it should be changed for every occupancy. This is not acceptable for "luxury" accommodation. We had to have the two bedrooms thoroughly cleaned due to the amount of dust which contributed to bouts of hayfever.
I will be looking at Jades on Lawson for my next stay - really amazing apartments just behind Bay Royal.

Great apartments which are very local to everything especially the beach. Rooms were fantastic and the kids felt very relaxed in them. Beautiful place and will stay there again.

Having visited Byron many times over the years this was my first stay at the Bay Royal. The apartments are modern, clean and well appointed although the bedrooms are quite small. The kitchen was very well equipped so a family or large group can easily self cater. We had six adults staying in the apartment quite comfortably. The location is excellent - right across from Main Beach and a short walk to the Beach Hotel and all the shops and restaurants. Definately will stay there again in future.

We stayed at Bay Royal for Christmas 2009 with the extended family (we and had several apartments) and had amazing time. The apartment faciliites (kitchen, laundry) are very convenient and made it easy to eat at home each night (eating out on top of can get very expensive). We were only a block from the grocery store as well. The aparments are big - great balconies facing the ocean and park, built in robes in the bedrooms and good sized bathrooms and comfortable furniture in our apartment (apartments are all furnished differently). The only challenge we faced was noise from backpackers sitting in the park late at night playing the bongos - luckily the apartment had airconditioning so we could keep the bedroom windows closed at night. Didn't have much to do with the managers although they came in on Christmas Day (their day off) to clean the pool and tennis court.
Amazing apartments and much better than Rays (location and value for money)!!

Contrary to other reviews we found the management to be very friendly and accomodating. We stayed for four nights in apartment four and it was lovely. Rooms were great. Location was great.
