Recently stayed at the Karinga Motel in Lismore while on business. The proprietors were very welcoming and helpful. Rooms were very neat and clean with all the fixtures you would expect. Location of the motel is close to the main street as well as the river for early morning or afternoon walks. Rooms were quiet being just far enough away... More

Travelling as a single person I needed to find some where safe and comfortable to stay. Sam was so helpful in making my stay enjoyable. Room very clean and comfortable. Have already recommended Karinga Motel to friends travelling up that way.

Karl and Sam were just lovely. They put themselves out when we arrived early and the staff were so friendly. The meals in the restaurant were huge and delicious. Our room was well appointed and clean with a wide array of snacks to choose from. A very central location close to everything yet quiet. Love to stay again.

The new Managers, Karl and Sam, have taken Karinga Motel from an unwelcoming place according to earlier reviews that I had read to a place that will attract many return visits. Nothing was to much trouble and anything else that was required was only a request away. Although our room had not yet been re-furbished it was spotlessly clean and... More

We booked an overnight bed and breakfast stay through Wotif, and were most impressed. Having read earlier reviews, I can say without hesitation that this place must have changed enormously. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the room spotless (and very tastefully furnished, with 2 comfortable armchairs, a proper table and table decoration ) . We had a continental...
