“Super friendly and great atmosphere ”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Me and a friend spend the weekend at Ruskin House and where surprised by the very friendly staff, service and the relaxed atmosphere of the place. Rooms are nice and clean and it has a nice little courtyard where you can sit for breaky. The girls where so helpful with everything and even let us take a super late shower way after checkout time. Totally recommended!

Stayed 3 nights in late April 2014.
Were greeted by 2 friendly young women.
Politeness and service from Kristyna & Jana was exemplary.
Clean, comfortable rooms, & comfortable beds were a treat to find.
And the girls made excellent Cappuccinos.
Will stay here when in Byron Bay again.

Stayed here before and after bluesfest and I have to say it was outstanding value. We arrived early both times and were met with offers of a coffee or tea (with a ferrero rocher chocolate!). Rooms were great, very clean, lovely courtyard to enjoy the best value breakfast in Byron! Will recommend to everyone as the hosts were superb. Thank-you!

This was an interesting little place to stay with breakfast in the Courtyard, shared with a little water dragon and snake. The owner was very helpful and the B&B was very clean and comfortable. Everything was in walking distance and a trip to the Byron Bay lighthouse is a must.

From the moment we arrived until the time we left our stay was very enjoyable. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and made us feel very much at home. The room was of a good size,quiet and very comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent value for money and included a wonderful fresh fruit salad. The position is also excellent, situated just a couple of blocks from the centre of town and with the beach a short walk away. The cost was also reasonable.

Ruskin house is a nice B&B, with friendly owners. The best things about it is its location though- easy walk to town, but nice and quiet. We enjoyed a couple of nights here and liked how easy it was to come back after an afternoon on the beach, to then go out again for dinner!

Ruskin House is a great base if you want to be in the heart of Byron. We stayed here for a weekend and loved that fact that we could walk everywhere easily, but it was far enough away that it was quiet for sleeping. Our room was spacious and comfortable with nice touches such as complimentary (cold!) water, chocolates and toiletries. There are a lot of great places close-by for breakfast, but we ate here on our last morning and it was excellent!
