Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An excellent stay at this motel. The room was very comfortable and the meal superb - completed by a delicious bonus brownie created by one of the young owners. I thoroughly recommend this motel if you're travelling to the Lismore area you will enjoy it.

I stayed here midweek for work as I was travelling through. The motel is simple, but clean, neat, quiet and a nice easy location in a pretty spot (to the rear). Just what I wanted. The owners were good to deal with also and cooked me these mega Nachos for dinner as I didn’t feel like heading into town.

I enjoyed my stay at this motel. My mate and I traveled from NSW to Queensland from Sydney so we really needed a nice to place relax and rest before a long drive. Room was spacious and bed is comfy. Pay 15 bucks for a really nice breakfast.

On entering room, there was a foul odour. Being extremely tired, I thought I would just turn aircon on and it might clear it up. I needed to lay down and rest my bad back/hip. Had an hour sleep, and on waking I could hardly breathe from the stench.It was an overpowering smell of urine (cat pee maybe). I organised a another motel. As i was leaving the manager asked what was wrong, so told her. She offered to move me to another room,which i accepted.On leaving next day, I was confronted with-"that smell in the room was smoke, do you smoke?" I have not smoked in 18yrs. And if it was me smoking in the room, why would I want to move to another and expose myself?? I cant stand the smell if smoke and I can certainly tell the diff between smoke and PEE. 2nd room smelt better, room was clean, mattress was hard. 1st room stunk, had a small poo on vanity sink (possibly a frog poo)...

We stayed one night here in August 2019. The room was very large and clean; the bathroom even had a bathtub (which most motels don't). Clean, comfortable bed, welcoming owner, great value. Recommended.

I have previously reviewed this motel (2015) when it had a lake with lots of birdlife. Since then due to incompetence from the local council (who can't /won't reach an agreement with the authority that manages the adjacent river) there is now only a weed infested hole in the ground with a few puddles. The birds have all gone. Sadly now this is just another mediocre Lismore motel in a town already full of mediocre motels..

Hadn't stayed here for a while when it used to be associated with another motel chain. Just out of town with a good walk around the lake. Large well fitted room. Substantial meals at a very reasonable price.

We arrived in Lismore after an absence of many years. Not knowing what had happened with the expansion of the City we consulted TA and found the lakeside listed. A drive past confirmed it was a nice place. We drove up and were greeted by Operator and welcomed us to this slightly dated location. It is on a busy highway but convenient and out of town. We were lucky enough to get one of the last available room at the far end of the property. No problems, plenty of parking and quite a large room, bed was comfortable and the bathroom looked as if it has been recently updated. After a long day driving we went into town for a meal (disappointing choice) but after a shower we hit the sack - the bed was a double which we are not used to but we slept well. My wife does not remember hearing the traffic passing outside but it is noticeable - The room as clean and view "out the back" towards the lake area relaxing. Breakfast in the room was delivered on time and hot, good size portions and very well presented.

The motel is quite dated, but I can appreciate the effort that the owners have gone to in order to maintain the hotel. Our room was clean and met our needs for a 1 night stay. The owners are very friendly and helpful and made our stay comfortable. The aircon in our room was very noisy, so we ended up turning it off, but unfortunately the traffic noise is quite loud too, due to the close proximity of a main road. On the other side of the building was a lovely rural vista. All in all, we were grateful to have a clean, safe and convenient place to get a good night's sleep.

I stayed at this motel for its out of town location. I stayed here before about ten years ago, but it seems to have lost its spark. Twenty years ago, it was one of the best motels in town. The rooms remain large and comfortable, and I liked the fact that fresh milk is supplied in bottles that are washed and reused. However, I was greeted by a locked door mid-afternoon, and a proprietor who yelled at me to wait while he finished a call on a corded phone. Other disappointments, a shower that was barely warm enough, in mid-winter, and free in-room wifi that didn't work. It is a pity, as this could be a really nice place to stay.
