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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I had a short but great stay at the Lismore Gateway and it was fantastic. The staff were so helpful with every part of my stay and I will be staying there again when in the area. I have stayed in many motels/hotels and this was by far one of the cleanest placed ever... If there was one thing that I would mention that could've been better and it's only minor, my room service was a little cold when it arrived.

First visit back to Lismore since the border came down for work. The Gateway has coped well during this time and although the restaurant wasn’t dine in due do needing staff, the room service offering was great for dinner and breakfast. I needed somewhere to hang around and meet with a new colleague in the morning and was still welcome after checkout. Sandi and Ashleigh made me feel so welcome after a hard day on the road and it will stay my Lismore home from home

We stayed there for the recent cricket tournament and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities were good and rooms were clean and tidy. Despite not having the restaurant open, they were very accommodating of our team having meals around the pool at the end of the evening.

I cannot speak more highly of this place. The rooms are great and are very clean, the pools fantastic and the staff are brilliant. My son and a few of his team mates stayed there for a week while in Lismore for a cricket carnival and we were all treated very well. If we ever need to go back there, we know where we'll be staying!

Great stop over. Service was super friendly and the room was large and very clean with comfy beds. We were given some great recommendations for coffee and breaky in Lismore. Loved our stay. We will be back!

We have travelled widely in Austalia and overseas and The Gateway Motel Lismore is one of the cleanest motels we have had the pleasure of staying in. It's also very quiet and comfortable. We would highly recommend The Gateway to anyone seeking a stay in Lismore. J & M Brisbane.

Absolute amazing service! Sandi on the front desk is a 10/10 for customer service. Thank you so much for your time and accommodating myself and my team. Nothing was too hard and her service was second to none. I have never experienced service like that with all my travels around Australia for business or family leisure. Also, the restaurant food! WOW! The Thai Green Curry! Best in Lismore by far. I've passed on my experience to my network and we will all be booking back into the Gateway in the future - That is for sure. Thank you guys and especially to Sandi
