I had a great stay here and highly recommend it. Lily, the owner, is an absolute delight and her cooking is just as lovely as she is. Lily's New Olympic Motel is in the heart of Lismore, but a few blocks out so its peaceful and quiet. It's close to the bus stop and there's a beautiful park across the... More

Recently stayed at this motel overnight whilst on business in Lismore. Friendly and helpful front-of-house staff. Room was a little dark and requiring some updating. Bathroom appeared to have been updated and was nice and clean. No noise. Close to CBD and some nice eateries. Good honest breakfast. I have stayed in other motels in Lismore for a lesser price...

Good value and a nice clean motel. The lady was very friendly and welcoming. Easy to find. Accomodated our request for a downstairs room with ease and a smile. Can recommend it highly. I would stay here again.

Simply a basic motel room with rather dated furniture and fixtures. Very clean and well maintained and pleasant, friendly reception. Best feature is that it is right in CBD. HOWEVER.... don't stay here in the winter or colder months. There is NO in room heating so it can be VERY COLD ! ! !

I always stay in the same place whenever in Lismore. Value for money. Very well priced breakfast. Have Austar and have good internet connection. Near to Lismore City centre. Near to the restaurants. Friendly owners. Just have everything in a motel what one can expect.

Great place to stay in Lismore , very central to the cbd for business travellers. Always nice and clean with everything you could need in the rooms. I stay here regularly for work. Bonus is that Lilly is a great cook so you dont have to go out to eat The last reviewers photo must be a joke as you... More

Room seems clean on arrival, basic amenities are fine but awoke to a lovely bed big crawling on my pillow in the morning! So beware! Check out the pic of the bed bug if you don't believe me!
