“Great Weekend Stay”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Great Location walking distance to everything Byron has to offer. Staff were very friendly and customer focused which was great. Room was very clean, comfortable and easily accessable. Even with current roof restoration taking place there was absolutely NO impact on our stay. Would highly recommend for a weekend away.

It's great to hear that you enjoyed your weekend away at BreakFree Eco Beach and that our current roof works did not affect your stay. Byron Bay's weather at the moment is superb, you would think it was spring. The whale watching & dolphin sightings have everyone excited and we are a great base from which to explore everything Byron Bay has to offer. It's a great time to take advantage of our discounted rates which have been lowered due to the roof works. We anticipate they will be completed by the end of June. Thanks for your positive review and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Regards, Sharon Coleman, General Manager

The Hotel has very friendly staff with clean and well stocked rooms, pool, spa & gym - great value - but the best thing about this hotel is the location, walking distance to centre of Byron and beach. Will definitely be booking to come back thanks guys for a great weekend!

It's great to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us and the facilities at BreakFree Eco Beach. The pool, spa and BBQ area are located in the centre of the resort for easy access for all guests and offers a sunny spot out of the wind most days. Unfortunately we do not have a gym onsite but there are a few located within a 5 minute drive away or the lighthouse walk/run is a great exercise option whilst dolphin and whale watching. Did you know Byron Bay offers some of the best land based whale watching in Australia? Looking forward to your next visit. Regards, Sharon Coleman, General Manager.

We have stayed in many 4 star establishments and Breakfree Eco Beach in terms of facilities and functionality sits in the middle when considering the price.

Byron is never the most competitive place to stay and is quite expensive for accommodation. In that respect, Eco Beach was well priced for the area (although there was a sale when we stayed.)

For a place to sleep for a weekend away, BreakFree Eco Beach met our requirements perfectly. It is just starting to feel slightly dated, and I personally like to see a touch of luxury & character in a 4 star rather than just functionality. But having said that, if it were more luxurious it would probably have been more expensive to stay.

Main Points:

- The location is handy to town
- We enjoyed a quick dip in the spa by the pool. There is a good BBQ area there as well
- Our room was 12B which has water views off the balcony
- The staff are helpful and customer focussed

Two very small things that could have immediately improved it are:
1) Need a door mat so that you don't tramp mud & sand through the apartment.
2) Another towel rail as they didn't air well being a bit crowded together on the one little rail.

Overall, perfect for a functional stay with good service and facilities. Wouldn't recommend a studio for a lengthy stay - perhaps the larger apartments are better for lengthy stays. If we were there awhile the BBQ area would have come in handy for sure! If you are looking for more luxury and character in your stay at Byron, you will probably have to dive into your wallet and spend a lot more elsewhere.

Room Tip: For a studio, 12B is at the rear- reasonably quiet and water view from the balcony.

Your comments are appreciated and will help us to provide a better service for future guests. I'm not sure which room you stayed in but for reference 12B is a one bedroom and 12A is a studio. The furniture in the lounge/dining room is all new, having only been installed 3 months ago. The majority of our rooms also have new stone kitchen benchtops and curtains. You might like to request these next visit. Guests always enjoy the large heated spa, even in winter, and often make use of the BBQ and alfresco dining area. Looking forward to your next visit.

Great resort for your Byron getaway. Front of house staff where super friendly, attentive and really chilled out. The room was clean and enough for a weekend away. Stones throw to the beach and an easy stroll to get amongst the Byron energy. I`ll definitely be back!

This was our first stay in Byron Bay and at this resort. Great location - only 5 minute walk into town and close to beach (my husband is a surfer and was able to walk to beach with board). Apartment was clean and good value. Unfortunately bed was not fantastic and could do with an upgrade. There is a laundry room (free washing machine and dryer) which we utilised as travelling for over 2 weeks. Staff friendly and helpful.

Thanks so much for your comments and rating. Historically, surfers were the first major tourists to Byron Bay and every day surfers of all ages and from all over the world enjoy the waves at Wategos, The Pass, the Wreck and Tallows. We are happy to assist guests who are not surfers to discover a new passion by organising surfing lessons either one on one or in a group. Your experience with the bed has been noted and you will be pleased to hear that we are in the process of replacing them. Looking forward to your next visit. Regards, Sharon Coleman, General Manager

First time to this Resort. Awesome location, rooms were clean and staff are friendly. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was adequate. Good value for money.
Being a non - serviced apartment they don't make up your room or bring you fresh towels though, which was a bummer. We stayed a week and the towels were a bit rank by the time we left.
