“Noisy and not the cleanest”
Reviewed 22 October 2008

We stayed here for 5 nights.
Noise in the apartments late at night was a real problem.
One night we were kept up for over 3 hrs from 2:30am- 5:30am by about 10 drunk young guys yelling and carrying on, bashing doors and drunkeness put our trip to a bad start.

The overall configuration of the block means that any noise is bounced through all apartments like an amphitheater.

most other nights were fine but early morning wake up by kids playing at approx 7am wasnt the best wakeup call.

Their was alao alot of mould around vents and air conditioning, That was quite appaling.

For the price wasnt good enough.

Wouldnt stay here again and would hesitate to recommend to friends or family.

We say alot of our friends etc accomodation and was alot better at a cheaper prince.

A friend and I have just got back from Byron Bay and we had a wonderful time. It is a great place to visit and unwind!
Byron Central Apartments is located on Byron Street which is an effortless walk away from Jonson St - the main strip.
The Apartment (loft) we stayed in was CLEAN and COMFORTABLE and we used the kitchen to cook regularly. All the appliances needed were provided. There is a comfy couch which folds out into a bed and a TV which has 'pay channels' available at no extra cost.
Susanna greeted us on arrival and was lovely - friendly and polite.
There is a swimming pool, bbq and dining table outside the apartments in the little 'resort complex' for guests to use.
If you are wanting to know 'whats on' and are wanting brochures to things - you need to go to the Tourist Info Centre. You wont get them at reception.
Reception is not open 24-7 but there is a phone number you can call if you need to check in outside 'office hours'.
The only things my friend and I didnt like was that our towels didnt get changed at all during our stay (we were there for 7 days) and the bathroom also had no ventilation! The tiles in the kitchen and bathroom were also chipped quite a bit which lowered the 'look/standard' of the place.
I would stay at this complex again due to its location, friendly FOH staff and set up. I would recommend it to others too.
Look at photos if you are wanting a visual.

Booked accommodation two weeks in advance for Friday and Saturday nights which was confirmed by receptionist, using credit card details. Informed by manager one week later that there was a mistake on behalf of the receptionist and that there was a three night minimum stay and the booking would be cancelled if we didn't pay for the third night. The Manager was unwavering and refused to hold the room while we contacted the other travellers to confirm the extra costs. We found alternative accommodation paying $200 more than what we were originally planning on paying for the weekend. Totally unacceptable.

Great location, clean and safe. Nothing fancy but a car park on site and very helpful front desk - fantastic value.

The room was lovelly, the staff were very nice.

Entry to the apartments is via a locked gate - so no one roams about!

It was priced appropriately. Facilities were excellant.

We stayed at Byron Central Apartments from 1-4 September 2006 and were absolutely thrilled with our choice. The studio style room was clean & spacious with comfortable beds and cable TV. The complex is not too big and is situated on a "no through road" so there is not much passing traffic noise and security was excellent. It is a very short couple of blocks (2 minutes walk) from the central town area which was handy. We noticed the central town streets could be quite noisy at night so we were especially happy to be a little bit removed from this. We would definetely stay there again.
