Good over night stop

Posted 21-Dec-2014
Pros: Communal lounge area
Cons: The heat in the bedroom was stifling.
Location: Out of the way, down an unmade road....only good if you have transport
We stayed for 2 nights at the Planula. It was fairly out of the way so you would definitely need transport to get to the main drag of Bryon Bay. Having said that, there was a beach in (long) walking distance which was deserted and beautiful. The room we had was very small, and hot even with the fan.... But the communal lounge area was comfortable, with plenty of books and CDs etc. Breakfast was different breads for toasting, with jams, peanut butter etc; fresh juice and muffins. We wouldn't choose this as a holiday stay perhaps, but ideal for a short stopover if you're passing through.

Comment from Hotel Management
Thank you for taking the time to review our B&B. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the peace and quiet of our place. Unfortunately, the traffic into Byron Bay can be busy at times. As an alternative to using the car we do offer cheap bike hire so our guests can cycle into town via the bike/pedestrian path, which only takes 10 minutes. Some of our guest opt to walk the 3 km into town. We hope to welcome you back to Planula one day soon. Tim and Wandy

Peaceful hideaway

Posted 13-Oct-2014
Pros: Peaceful , but not to far away from town
We stayed 3 nights at this peaceful B&B , Wandy and Tim were lovely people and breakfast was very enjoyable with a selection of breads and homemade muffins. We stayed in the queen room with a spa which overlooked the natural bushland. We would definitely stay here again.
