I stopped for 2 nights and will return in a flash. What great value for money. Centrally located and only a couple minutes walk to the shops, what a great location. No road noise and it was pleasant to listen to the tolling bells of the local church each afternoon. I had a family room that was bright and airy,... More

The room I had was a little small and cluttered but it was very clean and comfortable. It was well serviced and the staff were very friendly. The location is central, close to the centre of town. It is reasonable value for a nights stop over.

Lovely people, beautiful room, friendly service. The room smells very nice, it was always very clean and made up after each day. The staff are very friendly, nothing is a bother and they are always looking to help you and make your stay enjoyable.

This wasn't our first choice to stay at due to a few events taking place in Lismore that weekend but was about the ony one available that had a family room still available when we booked. The décor is a bit aged but the premises was kept clean. The room was clean with exception to the fold sofa bed that... More

I stay here whenever work takes me Lismore and it is like a boutique motor inn without the boutique price. The staff are excellent (even fniding me a phone charger when I forgot to pack mine) and the meals are certainly value for money. It is a pleasure to stay you always feel welcome and well looked after.

I have stayed here on a previous business trip to Lismore and returned as the Dawson offers impeccably clean rooms with faultless service. The rooms aren't ultra contemporary - someone was very taken with a shell motif in the early 90s - but they are comfortable, perfectly maintained and probably the cleanest I have stayed in anywhere in the world....

Dawson Motor Inn may not be the biggest or the newest accommodation in Lismore but it certainly is good accommodation for a great price. The rooms are spotlessly clean and have everything that you need for a comfortable stay, including free WIFI. The breakfast is huge and freshly cooked with good quality produce. Definitely worth a visit.

Basic but clean and comfortable . Breakfast was nice with a complimentary piece of fruit. Stuart and his staff were genuinely friendly and beyond helpful. They went out of their way for us. Would stay again and recommend.
