We had a wonderful stay at Crowne Pavilions near the popular sea-side town of Byron Bay. This was our first visit to Australia and staying at this stunning bed & breakfast certainly has set a very high standard.
To start with, the scenery and grounds are breathtaking to behold. The images on the website simply do not do these the justice they deserve. The term “paradise” comes to mind.
There are three “Pavilions” from which to stay in. The one (Sunrise Pavilion) in which we stayed was extremely comfortable, cleaned to a high standard and came with a number of features one wouldn’t normally place in a typical bed & breakfast. These include; a Nespresso maker with milk frother, small refrigerator, kettle, microwave, excellent mattress quality (it felt like it was a Tempur/memory foam type of material) as well as a modern bathroom. Outside our accommodations, the veranda was simply a perfect place to sit (on comfortable lounge chairs) and either take in the view during the day, or to sit and relax in the evenings.
The breakfasts were really a highlight with your host Susan creating a variety of masterpieces. These included a traditional breakfast, made with bacon from the local- and well regarded- Bangalow pork and local free range eggs, local, hand-made granola, american-style pancakes and even authentic cantonese congee!
The location is only a short car ride into the bustling town of Byron Bay - where there is plenty to do including a number of cafés, pubs, restaurants, local boutiques, a beautiful, long, sandy beach and of course, surfing. You can visit the most easterly point in Australia at the nearby Byron Bay lighthouse (which is also an excellent place to capture a 360 degree panorama of the local area).
I cannot recommend this B&B enough and the hosts David & Susan couldn’t have made us feel more welcome whilst at all times fully respecting our privacy. Very well done.
