Reviewed 26 April 2013

Stayed three nights April 2013. The complex is looking a bit dated and starting to show signs of wear around the edges, but was clean and tidy. We stayed in room 11 which has a nice view of the park and beach area. The lights in the lounge room and balcony do not work, and the fan and light in the second bedroom also did not work. We stayed midweek, and had no problems with street noise, but I could imagine it being at issue at times in peak periods. I think this complex is in the best position in Byron Bay, but it is expensive and doesn't represent great value. It is a great spot to people watch the vast myriad of camper vans that still flock to Byron Bay. The beach is still fantastic, and the town, while much less bohemian than it was twenty years ago still has a relaxed feel.

My wife and I stayed here with my two adult sons for a week over Easter whilst attending The Bluefest. We were in Apartment 15. We were more than happy with the accomodation in this spacious apartment. Two bathrooms, spacious lounge and a good sized deck. The bedrooms were at either end of the apartment which was great. Opposite the beach, three minutes walk to the main strip and direct access to the walking/running track to the lighthouse too.

Very friendly property manager on-site as well. The apartment could do with a bit of a face lift but otherwise perfect. Have re-booked for next year.

Room Tip: Level 2 affords a great view and privacy from the street.

Happy to be part of a family gathering all staying at the same property. We had certain expectations for $646 (half the fare for 3 nights for a two bedroom apartment). Didn't mind the small main bedroom as it advertised that it came withTV... Would have been ok if the analog TV wasn't older than us and inserted in the wardrobe! Come breakfast time we did not think opening the cutlery drawer to dirty cutlery was very flash, nor the grill tray still having grilled cheese on it from the guests who'd stayed here before us. Great location, but for the $ better value could be sought.

Seven people for a week, the balcony with the view over the beach is fantastic. A great place to watch the world go by or walk 10 metres and join in and your on the beach. We had to change apartments, both very similar, both a little outdated. The 3 & 4 bedroom apartments quite large and resonably fitted. No WiFi, but being fitted we were told as we left. The main bedroom was very nice, I had one of the smaller bedrooms which had two single beds, for kids they would be fine, but just OK.
You stay here for the location and view from the balcony. Pricey but can't beat the location and view.

This is just the place to relax and refresh from whatever stress and tension you have in your life!! I have just stayed at for 3 nights and have come home feeling calm and peaceful (at least for now). Bay royal apartments are really nice We stayed in t apartment 1, but it was worth it. Two bedrooms, both with gorgeous ensuite bathroom, divided by spacious living room with TV, DVD, kitchenette. terrace spectacular and peaceful views of the beach. Bed was very comfy, and I'm extremely picky the apartments are inmaculate, and close to all shops just 100 meters from the beach, the management are very informartive and friendly

We stayed in Apartment 15 on the second floor and just loved it! It is certainly not the cheapest place to stay, but the location is fantastic, with the beach and flagged area just across the road and really good views of the beach and ocean. We stayed for 5 days and did not need the car once, everything is so close. The apartment itself was as expected, clean, modern and nicely decorated, though we found the bed to be uncomfortable (it needs a topper or some padding). The veranda was superb and it was great to sit and look out to sea and also watch all the activity happening in the park opposite. Luckily, no drumming back-packers, so perhaps they've been moved on? Very quiet at night and only annoying noise was rubbish trucks at 7am. Friendly managers made us feel welcome, and we would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Top floor ocean view.

We stayed at a first floor two bedroom apartment which we found to be well appointed, modern, and clean with all the facilities that our small group (two couples) required for our short stay.

Location on the beachfront was great and very close to all shops and restaurants without being in the middle of town. The only problem was an all-night party on a Friday night at the park across the road which made sleeping rather difficult in the front bedroom of the apartment.
