“Good location”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

The hotel is in good location short walk to the town centre and the rooms are nice and clean.
The first room we got was on the front of the property so facing the main road and I found it too noisy. We were allowed to change rooms but for an extra $80 cleaning fee.
Our second room was at the back of the property and was nice and very quiet. The whole property and the rooms I saw were well kept and clean.
I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back of the property - lot quieter that the front which is facing the main roa...

Thanks for your comments. Please note that whilst we do our best to fulfill requests we cannot guarantee them. Everyone's noise tolerance is different and although street front, most of these rooms have nice sunny balconies overlooking the pool.

Flexible accommodation (we had interconnecting rooms) near enough to walk into the centre (7 mins) but far enough away to be quiet.
No direct access to the beach but access in either direction (5 mins).
We didn't ask for much but the General Manager was lovely & very helpful; nothing would have been too much trouble. The most impressive thing was that it was spotlessly clean.

We stayed here for 4 nights in a studio room. The location is great but beware of the slow drive into town from the highway (school holidays didn't help..). You might even be better off approaching from Bangalow/Ballina direction. It is a simple, clean hotel. Nothing too fancy or luxurious but good value for the price. It's an easy 5-10 min walk to the shops & restaurants. The lady in reception is very helpful.

Thanks for your comments. Byron Bay is a very popular destination because of it's casual beauty and sandy beaches. You can park your car and walk to town and the beach and not worry about the traffic until you leave. Look forward to seeing you again.

I would recommend breakfree eco beach to anyone going to byron for a relaxing getaway, i just spent 3 day here and was pleasantly surprised with how nice it was for the price i paid. It is very well looked after, clean and quiet close to everything and the staff are very friendly and willing to help you out when need be.

Reviewed 1 October 2012 via mobile

No free wifi but the rooms were large neat and tidy and the room we had was self contained. Car parking was underground and with a security door so it was ideal to leave the car. The centre of town was a 10 minute walks away. Traffic on the main road was hectic so it was ideal to walk. Showers were good and hot and the bed was comfortable. Remember to take out your own rubbish otherwise you may be charged for the service after you are gone as you have to leave a substantial deposit on credit card for any damage etc. that is not credited until a few days after you are gone. There was no room service under 8 days occupancy unless paid for separately. We felt this place was overpriced for what it had to offer and we would not stay there again.

Thanks for taking the time to comment on your recent stay with us. Byron Bay has limited accommodation and is sometimes more expensive than other holiday destinations, especially on weekends, school holidays and festival times. Keep an eye out though, as we often have very competitive specials. We are self catering, as are most of the accommodation houses on Shirley Street and as such guests are asked to remove their rubbish and do their dishes. Extra towels may be hired for a small fee.
