Had a dinner function at Lismore Club. Hotel less than 100 m from it, meant it was very handy. It's an older hotel. But it was clean and tidy. What I will remember is the bed. It was perfect. Happy days. 😊

Stayed here for work and is great accommodation for the price. I have stayed in various motels with work in Lismore and found this to be the best so far. Friendly manager and the room was clean. Would definitely stay here again.

We do not advertise that the Spa pool is heated. I gave you your refund with NO argument and then informed you that you would be charged from the booking site that you booked and you shouted at me that they can not charge you, and I said they can because it is now 2 pm and you wanted to check out because of the spa, they have the right as it states a 24 hr cancellation policy, NOT 25 minutes after you book in. I was the one to ring them and to let you know that you will be charged, they then sent you a email to confirm that. People have to now if they book through web sites they are going to charge you for that, that is how they keep in business If you wanted a pool, then why did you go to a motel that has none after that.

My family & I visited Lismore just for the night. The motel was situated within walking distance to shops & a good park for our daughter. Standard motel room but exceptionally clean. Manager was very friendly

We got the Family room for 3adults. It had a double bed and 3 single beds, so was plenty of room for 3. Basic rooms, but that’s all you need. Right in the centre of Lismore, right behind the Workers Club, the Karinga is in a very good position.
