“lovely 2 day stay”
Reviewed 21 July 2012

Our unit was very clean and really comfortable, especially the bed. We loved the meccinine bedroom as it was a bit of a novelty. The location is fantastic and we strongly recommend the spanish restaurant around the corner.
The staff were amazing and so helpful.
We would definately stay here again.

Excellent location in the centre of Byron Bay. We stayed in the deluxe loft apartment and was everything we needed. Fresh feel, clean and definitely comfortable. Kitchenette, with enough gear to cook meals, awesome shower head in the bathroom, big tv and comfy couch which can also be turned into a sofa bed, and the aircon/heating works a treat! The staff were very welcoming upon arrival and more than happy to assist throughout our stay. Having laundry facilities was great. Not a bad word to say about this place. It's not often we come across places where we say we would definitely go back, especially when there are so many to choose from, but I would definitely recommend these apartments and would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Deluxe loft room 8

Location was awesome - right in the heart of Byron Bay and very close to a bunch of delicious restaurants and cafes. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, very comfortable, and well appointed. The pool had sun all day and was a nice place to relax before the beach. Laundry was on site and cheap. Loved the the layout of the apartment. Bed was ridiculously comfy. Everyone was very friendly. Would absolutely come back to stay there again. I can't say enough nice things about it. I have no idea why some of these reviews are so negative. Will definitely recommend it to any of my friends coming through town.

Room Tip: We had unit 17 and it was bright and airy. We did see another unit on the main floor and it was very...

Great location in the heart of Byron Bay, comfortable self contained apartments with everything you need for a stay in Byron Bay. Good value for money would be the best way to describe Byron central apartments . Would definitely consider staying here again next time I come to Byron.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top level facing the street are quieter than rooms on the ground level

We booked an apartment (received unit 9) for 3 nights in early March 2012.
The good:
--Location was fantastic, 5 mins to the action, 10 mins to the beach, 5 mins to a grocery store. Very centrally located
--The newly renevated unit that we were in was nice and clean. Was a bonus to have a kitchen although it is small. Good for making breakfasts, snacks and simple meals
--Service - our host when we checked in was lovely, answering our questions about the best local yoga studio to visit (right across the street)
--Upstairs / loft was lovely and queen bed was very comfy

The bad:
--can be a bit noisy due its close proximity to other hostels. Lots would be out drinking / hanging on their balconies in the surrounding area in the evening
--ants. We had some ants in the kitchen, assuming it's due to being a ground floor apartment with lots of lush vegetation around. Kind of a nuisance (the ants followed us in our luggage to our next destination) but they didn't bite or anything. More of a minor annoyance.
--pull out couch in the main room was pretty uncomfortable due a thin mattress

We had an unexpected stay here so were limited for choice in Byron Bay town centre as many places force a 3 night minimum stay (frustrating !) but the information centre helped us find accommodation which was fantastic. Scott at reception was friendly but he was the highlight of lur stay here.
This place was a newly renovated townhouse with the main queen bed upstairs ... very nice until you need to accommodate for 2 kids on the worst fold out sofa bed I have ever slept on. We let our kids have the main bed so we could watch tv downstairs and the fold out mattress was like sleeping on raw metal springs. For $220 I thought it was atrocious quality bedding. So whatever you do, don't book this place unless you can have the main bed ! In addition, the townhouse backs onto a communal sitting area where young party goers hang out. They communed and made noise until 1 in the morning at our back door. One of our drinking glasses was filthy and had a hair stuck in the dried grit and then we realised it's because they ask guests to was their own dishes before leaving otherwise they charge for the 'service'. Tea & coffee sachets were provided but no milk containers were provided which meant we couldn't make a drink and it was too late to buy milk for the morning. Overall - interior looked good, walking distance to everything but service zero and we had a terrible night's sleep. When we left the guy at reception didn't ask us how our stay was or say thankyou - just took the keys and ignored us ( and we hadn't complained ... he just didn't care). A lot of places in Byron seemed to have this attitude - zero concern for service. Busy tourist towm - they don't seem to care if you never come back.

BCA-Scott, Manager at Byron Central Apartments, responded to this review, 26 March 2012
Dear Ladycatrin,
Thank you for your review and my sincere apologies for any disappointment you may have experienced. Sofa beds are never ideal for two larger people but I guess its one of those compromises that people make to save on the expense of a two bedroom apartment. As a solution we can offer a roll away bed so that you only have one person on them. Our apartments are ideal for a family if the kids sleep on the sofa bed as the cost is a lot more reasonable then a two bedroom apartment. We can also put a couple of mattresses upstairs if that's helpful.

Even though we do request our guests do their dishes they are always double checked for cleanliness. Having said that, there is no excuse for finding the wine glass the way you did, I appreciate being told and will raise this directly with my cleaners as a serious concern.

I have spoken to Oliver about your departure and he was surprised and requested I send you his apologises as it was not his intention to be indifferent. He suspects that he may have been on a call as the headset we use is fairly discrete and often people don't realise. It can be a bit tricky to ask someone to stop talking on the call to immediately deal with a customer at the front desk.

We offer complimentary fresh milk on arrival from reception as the normal practice. I'm sorry if I forgot to offer it, we like to offer fresh milk to each guest rather then the long life milk as it just tastes better.

Finally, we have zero tolerance for noise after 9:30 and request guests to call the onsite manager by dialling 100 in your room should there be any problems at all 24/7. We have notices in the room and on arrival all guests are notified of the noise restrictions and after hours number. We strongly respect guests right to a peaceful nights sleep and always have staff on hand to enforce it.

Cheers
Scott

My husband and I stayed at Byron Central apartments with our one year old for five nights from the 1st - 6th March 2012. Although the apartment was a bit smaller than I imagined, it had everything we needed and I would definitely stay here again. After reading some other reviews about the noise factor, I did email them and ask for a room that was on the "quieter side" if possible. However, we had none of the problems that some of the other reviewing guests complained about and found it to be a very quiet complex. Most of the time we were the only ones using the lovely clean saltwater pool and the other guests that were there kept the noise to a minimum. The apartment does have a noise curfew of 930pm and even has a 24 hour number to call if any other guests are rowdy after this time... so anyone complaining about the noise after hours only really have themselves to blame for not calling the night manager. The location was great - just a few minutes to the shops and beach and we were close to some lovely restaurants too (try Earth and Sea for great pizza). The undercover parking is a great treat and we found the beds comfy and the units clean. We used the laundry they have there and did not find it "grotty" at all as another reviewer did. The apartments are not serviced during your stay unless you are there for 7 nights + - but they have everything you would need in your apartment to keep it clean and comfortable yourself and provide extra towels and sheets upon request. I have stayed in a few different places in Byron now and this was by far my favouite - especially for travelling with a little one. I look forward to staying again in the future

Room Tip: We stayed in room 8 which has been newly renovated and was furtherest away from the pool/communal ar...
