Lovely little motel, staff have been excellent, friendly and happy, it is lovely to have a happy face greet you! Everything you need for a basic stay, close to town, and easy to find. So very clean and neat and quite modern. Breakfast in bed (room service) was excellent, very tasty and worth the $4 delivery!

The Lismore Gateway is rated highly on TripAdvisor ... I think it is reasonably good but am not convinced it deserves the very high praise. Yes, the rooms are quite nice. Yes, there is undercover parking. Yes, it is quiet. The restaurant is reasonably good. Maybe we had the "Monday night chef". The lamb shanks were nice - but tough.... More

I stayed here on business & was really impressed with 'Lismore Gateway Motel'. The king room was a good size, very clean & had free wi-fi. The staff were very friendly & accommodating. I ordered room service & was very impressed with the food. I had salmon on a bed of risotto which was absolutely delicious. Parking was behind &... More

I have stayed at this motel a couple of times but this time was a let-down. The positives are that it's in a convenient location, the rooms are quite nice and the food at the restaurant was really good. There is also good parking under and around the motel. Unfortunately my room had not been cleaned and the bathroom was... More

We recently had to revisit Lismore and thankfully the Gateway could accomodate our booking. Booked direct with the motel, no problems, room ready when we arrived and then had a very good dinner in the restaurant. Very comfortable and would recommend the Gateway as a great place to stay in Lismore.

Recently our organisation held a conference here. The staff and facilities were excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout the conference. Our members also stayed at the motel and found it to be modern, clean and very comfortable. The staff were very accommodating with everything that we needed. We couldn't fault anything about our stay or conference. Thank you... More

Nice clean room, only stayed one night. Room was good, staff were helpful and friendly. Everything was nice and fresh. There was a dirty plate left in one of the drawers though from a previous guest. Maybe should check those things more when cleaning rooms, overall though it's a nice place.

Fabulous looking hotel, so lovely and new and the rooms are decorated beautifully with a nice feel. Convenient location with a supermarket across the road and town centre within walking distance. Only problem were the slamming doors of the other guests as they came back late at night from the restaurant and then left early in the morning. Such a... More
