Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Positives
+ impeccably clean accommodation
+ allocated parking
+ keyless entry
+ comfortable bed and sheets

Negatives
- very noisy bats. Not so much a bother during the day but very active at night, made it very difficult to get a good nights sleep. (Understandably this is out of the guest house control, but this is something that did negatively impact our experience.)

- no curtain or ability to cover the window on the door, which let so much light in (also making it difficult for a good nights sleep)

Bangalow Guesthouse is a well presented house or cottage stay. Tranquil setting, luxurious rooms. We stayed overnight with friends after a round of golf and a distillery tour and had a wonderful night.Beautifully renovated heritage house and cottages with gorgeous gardens and lawn sloping down to a creek. Spectacular. We would certainly recommend at least a night stay.

The heritage guest house is on large grounds with beautiful gardens.
Bedrooms are large and spacious.
There are 5-6 individual rooms in the main cottage and 3-4 individual studio.

The negative is there is no kettle or coffee service provided inside the room.
Having to go to the common kitchen early in the morning is not acceptable for a guesthouse with this rating or tariff.

It was a lovely Guest house and we enjoyed the garden. However we arrived on Good Friday only to find nobody in attendance at the house. We were not sent a key cod by SMS or Email so could not get into our room. We rang all numbers leaving voice messages to no avail. After 4 hours of waiting for a return call I managed to break into our room through an open window. We were not contacted by anyone until Saturday. Very poor show considering we had flown up from Melbourne and had nowhere else to stay. We payed over $300 a night for the room and I would expect a staff member to greet guests on arrival and show them to their rooms. Would not stay here again as it had a very unfriendly feel.

We have been bowled over by Bangalow Guesthouse. We are staying in Mrs Letaigne’s Cottage and we are loving it. The bed is super soft and comfortable with lovely linen. It has ac and a ceiling fan for comfort. There is plenty of room to spread out, with plenty of storage space. I love the security door which is accessible by code, therefore no keys required. The comfy lounge on the verandah induced me into a Nanna nap while listening to the birds, flying foxes and the odd sheep in the background.....very relaxing! On day two we have already seen water hens, lots of huge monitor lizards, flying foxes, geckos, a brush turkey and unusual pidgeons all on the property. We have enjoyed the verandah up in the main house for drinks and restaurants and cafes are literally a 5 min walk away on the flat. The grounds are beautifully maintained and everything is spotless. The showers are like new with huge shower heads. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending the cottages to anyone. The only suggestion I have is to supply tissues and a can of fly spray as we had to buy some for the mozzies on the balcony. Other than those two small things we can’t fault our stay and would come back again without hesitation.

We have just had 3 nights in one of the cottages. We would like to thank the booking staff for understanding our request to add another night. They immediately gave us the same cottage so we did not need to move during our stay. Thank you. We arrived early and just asked to leave our car in the parking area so we could wonder up the street for lunch. The staff mentioned the room had been cleaned so gave us the key straight away. It is so nice to have such attentive people. We have stayed many times before and will continue to return. A great place to stay, close to cafes and a short drive to Byron Bay and surrounds. A gem!

Loved this beautiful cottage. Well equipped with robes and luxurious towels. Beautiful grounds and common spaces, yet right in town. Keyless entry was very efficient. Highly recommend this lovely property. I’d love to stay here again.

Didn't we do welll - $300 a night! OMG
Had booked this well in advance when breakfast was offered on the veranda as a key selling point OMG were we screwed!
Pros
Bed and bedding comfortable.
Cons
This was not a guesthouse per se, this is paying $250+ for a room in a house with random other people and no host, being given vouchers for an $11 breakfast and then having to walk half a mile down the road in the pouring rain every day! REALLY.
WARNING - Lock key in room or forget the door code, totally screwed as there is no out of hours back-up.
Rooms with nice wooden floors, doors with big gaps, unfortunately this meant we could hear all the sounds from other rooms including guests having sex!
Views limited close to a busy main road.
Rooms not really serviced just a girl ( not very friendly) asking if we needed anything!
There was tea and coffee and stale biscuits and could cook but everything has to be cleared away as we noticed when someone had put coffee grounds down the sink and left them the cleaners didn't bother cleaning them!
Oh and just a thought there is no cancellation even booking months in advanced! REALLY

We stayed here this time last year and were absolutely amazed at how great it was. Loved the room, the breakfast on the verandah and the very friendly staff.

This time however, a lot of this has disappeared under the new management. We arrived on the Sunday afternoon and stayed two nights. We did not see a single staff member the entire time. A letter in our room informed us that breakfast is now served at a local cafe up the road which was okay but limited and meant that we did pay extra when ordering. The house was very quiet as we believe we were the only people staying, which was good as we had a relaxing time but also unusual that we did not see any staff members even checking in to see us, their "guests"? I believe standards have dropped slightly and maybe the management is less concerned with guests and their overall stay.

Staying at the Bangalow Guesthouse now is like staying at a distant aunts house whilst she's away. Very lovely but a little weird.

We had the queen room at $325/night. Was it god value? Definitely not.
No room to swing a cat.No wardrobes, no cupboard space ,nowhere to hang your clothes or put them away. You have to live out of your suitcases and avoid tripping over them. So great for those with no luggage! Breakfast was 200 metres up the hill, wait for 30 minutes and you get $15 worth which was 2 slices of toast with your cup ot tea. So you end up spending another $20/head just to get some juice and a proper breakfast. Very mean I thought. It would be better to just say 'Bed' ( no breakfast) or for the money give us a decent continental at the very least.
Communal kitchen- just what you want when you get up for that cup of tea going down the hallway. No facilities in room . 'Beautiful French doors' that seriously need attention and a decent lock. Nice beds and linen though. Very comfortable Nice setting. Would have been nice to have had our room tidied. No one was there to welcome you in or out but we did have lots of written instructions dotted all over the place. You felt the owners didn't really give a monkey as they are the only place in town and you were doing them a favour by staying. All a bit pretentious I am afraid to say. Worth $125 a night more like it.
