Lismore Gateway Motel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were only here for one night, but the room was clean and comfortable. Checking was easy, and we were upgraded as well, which is always nice. The ice and water available outside the lift was very useful. Despite being close to the road, our room was quiet. There was also plenty of parking out the back.

Recently stayed at the Gateway - on my own for business - no doubt that this place is probably the best option in Lismore and I have stayed several times before and be reasonably happy. This time however, the bathroom was particularly grotty - the grout in the tiles was literally brown - splashing a mop around is not going to cut it. Two night stay and the way the bed was remade was a joke - seriously my 10 year old could have had a better crack at it. The bathroom was not cleaned, and the carpet was not vacuumed, wasted bin not empty and empty wrapper left laying on the floor. It the Gateway was to advertise as 4 star - they really need to lift their game. Finally the front office staff are pretty uninterested.

Enjoyable stay. Very clean and comfortable room. Had lovely dinner in restaurant. Receptionist was a multi tasker also working in bar and restaurant and she was extremely helpful and quite an asset to the motel. Will stay there again.

Had an awesome stay, everything was fully prepared for our arrival, service was great, rooms are incredibly tidy, undercover parking, this place has everything you need for a stay in Lismore. Highly recommend.

Superb value for the price. Friendly staff, easy check in. Undercover parking with lift access. Big room with modern super clean presentation. King size bed very comfortable. Good sized bathroom with good water pressure and hot water supply. Balcony with two seats. Close to the centre of town. Very happy!

Spartan rooms, no one answered the phones at reception after hours (in fact they hung up on us). Smokers outside on the decks make it impossible for non-smokers to open their doors. Won't be staying there again.

The rooms are gorgeous the staff are friendly and the pillows are the best. Its a good location close to Aldi kfc and Dan Murphys. The under cover parking is a has a pool and is nice and quiet

A large complex with beautiful pool and pleasant spacious rooms. This hotel was bigger than I imagined within walking distance to town and with a restaurant in house. Comfortable and clean it's certainly the best in town and has a huge off road undercover parking area.

This was a great customer service experience. The new owner and staff were friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Every request was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Didn't get to try the restaurant as it was closed on the weekend, but plenty of other options around Lismore. Anyway, the pool was a big plus!

I've realized over time that motels can have a plethora of features but what I crave most as a business traveler is fresh air and a good pillow. Gateway has opening windows onto trees and this is bliss to me. The place was also very clean, modern and well equipped. Service was mostly good too. Will definitely be back.
