Byron Bay 3- & 4-Star Hotel Accommodations

Planning a vacation in Byron Bay isn’t only about searching for the best outdoor activities and attractions that this North Coast paradise has to offer, but it’s also about finding the most ideal accommodation for you to retreat to at the end of a long, tiring day outside. Ideal doesn’t mean that you have to splurge on the most high-end accommodation in town; Byron Bay has a lot of economical choices for budget-conscious travellers. The 3- and 4-star accommodations in this area are just as good as the 5-star ones, minus the high price tag. This way, you can save on hotel expenses and have more to spend on other essential services you need, like getting a car hire in Gold Coast Airport to take you to Byron Bay, or on tours and activities that require you to pay extra, like horse riding, scuba diving, or ballooning. One of the most popular attractions in this beach town is the Byron Bay Lighthouse, touted as the most beautiful lighthouse that gives off the strongest light in the Southern Hemisphere. This, and a handful more gorgeous destination spots await you on your stay in Byron Bay. Check out these 3- and 4-star accommodations so you can book ahead of time and make the most out of your experience.
