Lovely place to stay !

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Dec 2023
Lovely place to stay - a tasteful, ambient space set in lush gardens. It is quiet and private and just across the road from a track to the beautiful beach. Great location - close to Byron Bay and Broken Head, and a short drive to Brunswick Heads, Bangalow and all the other great places to enjoy in the area. The room was clean and comfortable, it has a pool set in pretty shaded gardens and best, Frances the manager was friendly, helpful and quick to oblige with any requests. The staff on cleaning were also friendly and helpful. Frances organised our room to be cleaned last so we could have a late check out. We stayed 5 nights and our whole experience at Tallow Beach Motel was very pleasant. Thanks Frances. :)

    What a great find. Between the two of us we’ve visited Byron many times over many years but never stayed at Tallow Beach before. So glad we booked Tallow Beach Motel. Great communication as soon as I booked online, easy check in and out. The room was beautiful and clean- comfortable beds. The pool and garden is private - perfect space for a dip and relax after a day on the road.
    Woke to birdsong before crossing the road to watch the sunrise over the ocean… literally seconds from our front door - just magical.
    Dinner, supermarket and a beer garden within a few minutes walk.
    So many happy memories made in Byron and will definitely return to Tallow Beach Motel for our next lot.

    Our stay at Tallow Beach Motel was fabulous. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. It is only a short walk to the nearby pub, coffee shop, bakery, supermarket and a number of restaurants. The beach is a very close too - lovely in the morning and afternoon. I booked for our group of 12 friends and Frances and Mandi were gracious hosts, listening to and catering for our various needs. They kept in contact to ensure if we had any issues we could have them dealt with straight away. I highly recommend it as a place to stay.

    Room tip: Highly recommend as a place to stay

    This little gem of a motel is just paradise...beautiful garden swimming pool area and a stones throw from the beach and well situated for a short drive or bike ride to town. So peaceful and quite. Felt like a home away from home. I will definitely be back to enjoy what Tallow Beach Motels has to offer. Thank u Fran you are an amazing host ❤️

     The stay was very clean, with a quiet large room (even nicer than the pics!) and the staff were super helpful. Easily one of the most stunning beaches I've been to in Australia and was less than a minute walk across the road. Absolute paradise. Loved the convenience of being able to drive right up to my room. Given the small, boutique style, I can't believe my luck that there were rooms available, but I'm pretty stoked there was! This will definitely be the first place I check next time I'm staying in Byron Bay or surrounding areas. Awesome stay!

    Room tip: Honestly, the beach is so close and the place is so chill that I can't believe there are rooms available in this area...ever!
