Stayed here for one night. Staff were pleasant and helpful. My room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. Didn't hear any street noise. It had free WiFi. The breakfast was great. Under cover parking. Overall a great place to stay.

We held our wedding reception at the Gateway and everything was perfect. David and Brett were fabulous and nothing was to much trouble. The food was delicious and all guests commented on how much they enjoyed their meals. We stayed the night here and the room was spacious, comfortable and modern. We had a balcony overlooking the gardens. Our interstate... More

Comfortable clean room, good location. The food at the restaurant is great and staff is friendly. The room has a balcony which is makes for a pleasant to sit and relax. Recommend staying here for business or leisure.

I have been travelling to Lismore for the last three years for work. I have stayed in multiple motels in Lismore and the Gateway is by far the best. It has everything and is very central. The beds are good the showers are great but the best of all is the restaurant. I would recommend this motel in a heart... More

We arrived late afternoon. Reception not particularly welcoming, we were all sent outside for a long walk to the outside lift, then a long first floor walk back to our rooms which were above reception. Evening spent in the lounge/restaurant (one room) was OK. Food not great. Bit too well cooked by the cooks. One of our party couldn't eat... More

Last weekend my husband and I attended the Opera at the Channon and chose Lismore Gateway Motel as our accommodation as it had been recommended to us as a very "upmarket" Motel. It's rare that a recommendation exceeds expectations but it certainly did at the Gateway! Dinner in the restaurant was first class, service was exemplary and our accommodation was... More

This motel was much better than I expected! The rooms are nice and clean, the bathroom is the right size, they have undercover parking for each room available and free wi-fi in your room although the Foxtel channels didn't seem to be working. The best part was dinner at the restaurant, I had the ribeye fillet which was fantastic, definitely... More

I recently started at this hotel and ate in the restaurant whilst on business. The rooms are large, modern with all the usual amenities you would expect in an up market hotel. It has incredibly wide hallways big enough to drive a car down. So unusual as in city hotels they are narrow and cramped. We ate in the restaurant... More

Second time we have stayed here. Very clean motel. Staff friendly and helpful. Wouldn't hesitate in staying here again and recommending Gateway to my friends. Only issue was the hot water was warm......
