Great location walking distance to town, very clean and comfortable rooms and very friendly service. The hosts will make sure you have the best stay possible. Highly recommend this motel and have no hesitation to stay there again next time in the area.

The rooms here are clean and large with a table and chairs. Also provided was a toaster and crockery so it was convenient to have a light breakfast.
The receptionist was extremely helpful and able to direct us to a good place to eat . It was within walking distance to the CBD.

Caught out badly, through a car accident, and my father and I needed some comforting. We could not have landed at a nicer piece of serenity, and the very highest standard of customer service.
Stuart and his team, organized flights home and great food, and very high standard of lodging's.
We happened by their, through three recommendations from local's in a row.
That tells you something smell's pretty darn good. Thank you sincerely, Stuart.

We found the unit to be very clean and pleasant. The welcome was warm and friendly and the little garden seating area right outside our unit was just perfect for an impromptu early dinner for us all. We will definitely be booking in again when next in Lismore.

I had a one night stay, was greated with a very pleasant welcome, the hotel is dated but very clean, our room had everything you could ask for , the managers are friendly and obliging nothing too much trouble, Free Wi Fi and the best home cooked Brekky was just simply sensational. Check- out smooth fast and all smiles , I would definitely recommend and I will stay again.

Had a 1 night stay here for a business trip and found the check in process and all round service first class, couldnt do enough to make sure my stay was enjoyable. The room was a 2 bedroom family type room and was quite big. It was very clean but quite dated and showing its age a bit but this did not affect my stay. The bed was OK and the shower reasonable although i did run out of hot water during my evening shower. Room amenitites are good, free wireless broadband internet, 2 flat screen TV's, kettle, toaster etc etc, good iron and board but not many power points. I ordered dinner which was 'home style' cooking but an excellent quality feed, better than many restaurants for size and taste. Didnt try breaky as i had to be out early. Worth the money as it was quite cheap and i would stay again as the service and value cant be topped even with the basic rooms.

I needed a place to stay for work in Lismore, I checked Mr Google and this place lit up through Trip Advisor. The reviews were all similar regarding clean, nice, affordable and very friendly service. Due to that, I booked by phone and had a great chat. On arrival, I found the motel to be clean and well presented, was greeted well by Stuart and another great chat. I was lucky enough to get a room upgrade (Thanks again ! ) to a family room. Room was very clean and neat, bed, sofa, every thing super comfy... Room service was fast and Great, honestly this is a great place to stay, 5 minute walk from the shops and great service and help. Recommended if you are passing through, I would rather have personal service from a clean self owned/managed property than hype from a chain. Thanks again for making my trip comfortable and relaxed.
