Understated and beautiful !

A beautiful location across the road from the ocean in quiet suburban Suffolk Park, away from the tourist area of Byron, but close enough to enjoy the walk to Broken Head. Coffee and good convenience store within walking distance. The studio was clean and spacious. Bed was very comfortable. The motel had the feel of “Hotel California” in Santa Monica, but with a lush subtropical twist!


“The perfect weekend getaway”

Everything was awesome. Great sized rooms with everything you need and more. Clean and tidy grounds with a relaxing feel. The pool was warm and the beach was across the road.


Love this place!

comfortable, clean, Indo inspired room. Loveliest owners and easy check in and out. About 10 minute drive from centre of Byron but their are small necessity shops and a café nearby. Beach straight across the road…good for surfing. Not sure if they had WIFI.


“Weekend getaway”

We’ve stayed at Tallow Beach Motel before & enjoy the proximity to the beach & the short walk to the restaurants & pub. the beach is long & expansive & never gets overcrowded like the beaches at Byron. The motel is quiet & relaxing, although some guests get a little chatty first thing in the morning, however, sleeping late is not a priority at this beachside location. Owner/Manager onsite is friendly but not intrusive.


Awesome weekend getaway

We spent the long weekend at tallow beach motel. Was not long enough. We had a great time. The grounds were clean and relaxing and we spent most of out time by the pool or across the road at the beach. The rooms were great with everything you need and more. The owners are friendly and are there to help. Would not hesitate to go back.



It’s just a perfect place, close to a great beach, great owners and really very comfortable. It’s only drawback is that it’s not super close to Byron Bay itself, but not that far either… it doesn’t matter, it’s just a great place!


Nice motel in a lovely beach town

Tallow Beach motel is a lovely place to stay. It is in a great location just behind the beach and in easy walk to local shops and cafes. There us a great bakery/coffee shop quite close by as well as the pub, a bistro and a supermarket. We stayed in a studio room which was very clean and spacious. It had a sunroom and a small kitchenette with microwave, toaster and fridge along with crockery, cutlery, glasses etc and basic utensils. The owner was lovely and welcoming. There is a pool in a tropical setting and the rooms have a Balinese look.


Great service, right across from the beach!

Rosemary was phenomenal-great help and advice. She was simply the friendliest person – she saved our trip (after some lost luggage and visa confusion, her kindness helped us get back in vaca mode). The hotel is acros the street from a dog park and a beautiful beach. A bit of a walk to a restaurant and pub, and 5km south of Byron bay. Loved it!


An oasis of peace and quiet, across the road from a beautiful beach with Byron Lighthouse at one end …and walking distance to the excellent local bakery cafe where the coffee is great, too. A recommended retreat!


“Literally a few steps to the beach !”

A lovely motel in a superb location, just a stone throw from a beautiful uncrowded beach. Walking distance to a fantastic bakery/coffee shop. The room was clean and comfortable and the host was friendly and welcoming. I was even offered an upgrade 🙂


Just right ….

I couldn’t fault this lovely Motel . I will miss going to sleep hearing the waves crashing on the beach . It is in a perfect place in a very quiet street about 15 mins out of Byron Byron on a Bicycle (!) and only 7 mins from Macs for breakfast . I stayed with my friend for four nights and we only regret we didn’t stay 5!


“Near perfect for a great price”

Location was perfect. The relaxed spacious accommodation . It wasn’t anything fancy or overdone. It was practical, comfortable and clean. So much better than staying in Byron itself.


Lovely little motel

Lovely stay. very quite and peaceful. Will definitely be back.close to beach and local restaurants and hotel. Lovely staff very helpful. Markets are a must in they are on. Broken head walk and 7 mile a must do also. Recommended!


Very nice, quiet, awesome beach

Great place, was upgraded for free, breakfast was a treat – really appreciated it. Awesome beach 10 metres from hotel, doggy beach one way – normal beach the other way. Loved every doggy i got to pat, the people are very friendly in area. Owners are friendly and very helpful. Definitely recommend.


“Great Location!”

Staying out of Byron Bay was a great idea this place is only a short drive and only takes a few minutes. Although the road into Byron can get quiet busy. This place was peaceful and the beach is right across the road.
The bed and pillows were comfy. It was clean. Our studio room spacious and the best part was it fitted in so well with the beach atmosphere, relaxed, unpretentious and comfortable. The windows remained open and the beautiful breeze came through of a night time. It was quiet warm and it was so good not to have to use the air con.  I would stay here over any commercial accommodation in Byron.


Brilliant Hospitality!!

Tallow Beach Motel is a lovely place to stay. Away from the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay but close enough to enjoy everything that Byron is famous for. The beach is right opposite with direct access via a short walking track. Rooms are very comfortable with some really nice touches. Suzie the owner can’t do enough to make you feel welcome. I will definitely stay here again next time I’m up this way.
