“Romantic quirky with a true Byron chill”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We recently stayed at The Garden Burees for a second time. If you are after a romantic few days away with a true old fashioned hippy Byron chillout feeliong then this is the place for you. It's full of character , Simone who managers the property and is ready to greet you is the perfect host. She greets you with a beautiful smile a gentle nature and is passionate about each and every Buree and guest.
You may find at times a bit of noise from the the campground or Brewery close by but to me the ambience of the Garden Burees far outways this hiccup.
If you are after 5 star then this is not the place for you . If you are after romance, character, quirkyness and great hospitality then Garden Burees is your place.
Cookinfg can be tricky so be prepared to eat out at many of Byron's fabulous resturants which a just a 5 minute walk away. Lisa & Jeremy

Room Tip: We've stayed in the garden buree and the dragon fly nest. Garden buree has better cooking and...

I had a fantastic romantic escape with my husband for our anniversary. I loved that it was so quiet and peaceful but still a short stroll to Byron Town Center and next door to pampering, eatery, bar and cinema. I loved, loved, loved the outdoor shower and connection with nature. Lovely spa (where we enjoyed our bubbles which was chilled upon arrival) and the upstairs bedroom was perfect. Simone was so lovely and friendly and introduced us to the dragon lizard which spent all weekend spying on us from the garden. A little bit pokey when it came to getting our luggage in and settled but totally fine for a couple. Will definitely be returning.

I spent my wedding preparations wth my bridesmaids here in the birdsong room and my wedding night and another day in the more romantic dragons fly room. Both were amazing. So relaxing, so accommodating. I couldn't have asked for more.

Awesome surrounds, nice and peaceful. The photos do not do justice to the garden burees. The design and layout is perfect with the upstairs bedroom retreat. The spa bath holds two people easily. The only negative is that the toilet is a bit awkward to use when you a sharing the place with your romantic other. There is no way to use it discretely.
The service was very friendly and the rooms were spotlessly clean. Would stay again.

My family and I had a fantasitc weekend in the Grand Buree. The Grand Buree is very spacious afforing my family of 3 adults and 2 teenagers plenty of space. The location is very quiet and private but still in walking distance to the main street. The decor iss outstanding and made a fantastic backdrop to lots of family photos. We also enjoyed lounging around in the softest bathrobes ever.

Just a really unique and special environment. So much character and completely in touch with Byron's charm. Love the outdoor shower and the water dragons for company. A pleasure to come back to after all day out and about. Helps that there is a funky boutique brewery around the corner!

Room Tip: They all look as good as each other

My partner and i needed a short break to recharge the batteries and this was just perfect.
We started with a very relaxing massage at the spa next door.
Then soaked away our stresses with a hot tub
surrounded by gardens and the sound of trickling water.
The room was gorgeous,and with only 24 hours to fix us up it was amazing.
Both now regenerated and looking forward to our next getaway there.
