This ia a really tidy motel, new furnishings make it very nice for low cost motel, no painted block walls here. Situated immediately opposite Lismore airport it is possible to hear aircraft and road noise but its not severe enough to warrant worrying about. The noise is intermittent at worst and the rooms face out toward the lake and river.There... More

I wouldn't normally book this level of hotel (or Lismore for that matter ) but with Easter and bluesfest happening and every hotel over charging I decided I would stay further out. I was generally impressed with the hotels features as the room was a good standard and very clean too with a decent shower. Fresh milk offered at checkin... More

Great!. We had a break down just out of Lismore and needed a place to stay. Clean comfortable and some good advice for dinner. Friendly service from Colin at the front desk. Room is clean and the bed is comfy.

Great place with everything you need really. Fresh milk upon arrival? Yes please. Room was clean and everything was there. I did have some troubles sleeping due to the fact it was located very close to the highway and a lot of trucks were driving past.

As a very regular traveler with over 200++ nights away from home I look for comfortable and clean rooms, this includes the quality of beds and Best western hotels are re known for the quality of beds and this hotel is no exception

Vivienne and Colin were the most delightful and accommodating hosts. We originally only planned to stay the one night but ended up staying 3 nights ... partly because of the absolutely delicious home cooked meals that Vivienne creates. And right on the ordered time, Colin delivered the feast to our rooms with a friendly smile. The rooms were terrific, everything... More

Stayed on recent visit to Lismore and was impressed by value for money, clean room, wonderful lake views and the amazing birdlife. I will definitely be recommending this place to friends and anyone visiting Lismore who is on a budget (suggest you book through Wotif)

We booked 2 rooms were very happy with the CLEANLINESS, VIEWS and CLOSENESS to the city. I slept very well and the air conditioning made a big difference. The rooms were cleaned every day and that was GREAT. Nice scenery just outside your door and parking right outside your room. We also saw some wildlife. I would highly recommend this... More

It started by us arriving early and seeing a big step up to get to the office. Hadn't we explained clearly enough that we were mobility impaired? We were asked to go back into town and come back later. Yes we were early but the guy was busy trying to get the internet to work and it felt so unwelcoming.... More

Dear Su, I am sorry that you feel you had an unpleasant stay at our motel. We do have a lot of people who are mobility impaired staying here, the step to the office and the step into the shower are of a normal height, if you had advised us of the extent of your mobility impairment, specifically no steps...

We had an overnight stay at this motel and found it to be a very peaceful place and out of the busy township of Lismore. The rooms are a generous size with table and chairs and 2 comfortable chairs and coffee table. Good bed and plenty of pillows. We were happy with everything and that is why I do recommend... More
