              Pool and seating area fantastic. Hats off to the cleaning staff for maintaining a very high level of cleanliness in room & bathroom. My rating of 4 stars for staff was only due to Male assistant/owner?who did not acknowledge me as a quest and didn't appear approachable at all although that said the Lady owner was very polite & friendly so maybe he was having a bad 4 days lol I would definitely recommend to friends and stay again myself.

              This motel has recently been refurbished after the big floods. The standard is high and the decor up to scratch. The toilet and hand basin set-up was entirely new to me. I felt a short explanation of the workings of the system might have been helpful as I was panicking in the belief that there was a huge wastage of water. It turned out to be the exact opposite! However, I was really concerned for a bit.

              Clean, modern, bright, new. Unexpected upgrade to a family room (we were 3 adults). Complimentary breakfast was perfect. A nice place to stay and hang out in - not like the motels you just use for a bed and don't want to spend an extra minute in. This will definitely be our go to for any future trips to Lismore.
