I have been staying at The New Olympic Motel in Lismore for about 30 years now. It is in a good position, being one block up from the main CBD. I have seen several owners come and go, but the currant owner Lily is up with the best. She keeps the place spotless, inside the rooms and outside areas as... More

The motel is in a reasonably good spot and providing your not too close to the road it is also fairly quiet - except for a particular guest at 3am (which is not the motels fault). wifi was flakey with the antenna location being at the rear of the hotel - very strange location and lots of latency unfortunately.

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.

Lilly is amazing! the rooms are well presented and ample in size. Good convenient location and good value for money. Would highly recommend a stay here, especially with a family. The staff are helpful and meet all requests.

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.
