Couldn't recommend this place more. Our stay came not long after they were smashed by the floods, but you wouldn't have known they were in the middle of refurbishing, cleaning etc. as the owners were so friendly and accommodating. They went out of their way to ensure we had a room with two beds despite booking late on Saturday afternoon...

I stayed mid-week for 1 night this February. It was a very last minute phone booking. Reception kindly waited after hours for me to arrive, with a warm, friendly welcome. The room was very clean, quiet & comfortable. They provided real milk for tea & coffee, not the horrible long-life.stuff. Breakfast was delicious. The room was very reasonably priced.

We stayed at the Lismore Wilson Motel over the new years period for the Tropical Fruits festival. As well as the wonderfully friendly welcome, we were pleasantly surprised by the room when we arrived. We had booked a Queen Spa room which was the only room left when we booked.

Good sized room with a good bed and good shower and great TV. All the basics at a good value price. Also, the walls between the rooms are brick so there's no noise. Staff are friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend this motel.
