We stayed overnight and found the room to be quite good. A bit of traffic noise came from the adjacent highway. The room was quite spacious and equipped with frig, toaster and kettle. The bathroom was more of a wet room with curtains pulling around the shower. The only negative was that the television set was quite small to be...

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Arcadia Motel. The rooms have recently been renovated and are well presented. The Motel is well located a few k's to the east of Lismore. Wendy and Joanne are the new owners and made us welcome. The Motel is far enough back from Ballina Road to minimise road noise. Breakfast is...

We had a great stay here recently. The motel is only 10 mins from the centre of town. The rooms were clean and tidy, and the owners Jo and Wendy were lovely and super helpful. We would absolutely recommend staying here : )

First time at this motel for work. It is under new management and it looks like some changes are being made. The decor was 'interesting' and television was extremely small, however the service was fine and rooms clean and tidy and most importantly quiet.

I stayed there on my travels. Staff are friendly. I enjoyed the homemade lasagne at a reasonable price. Rooms are newly painted, newly carpeted, new curtains and room is clean. You can see the new owners are still working hard on improving the motel and refurbishments. It did not cause us any discomfort though. Tea and coffee fascilities in the...

I booked at Arcadia Motel at the last minute as it was the only accommodation left in the area. Upon arrival I received the most unwelcoming service by the manager who was angry about my disturbing her and proceeded to disclose all her life's problems to me despite my lack of interest or acknowledgement. After finally getting into the room...

Sorry to hear about your bad experience staying here, we have heard some other terrible stories along the same lines.

This motel is in a reasonable location near the highway, and would benefit from double glazing on the window to reduce traffic noise (not overly loud mainly, but I was woken a couple of times by large trucks passing by). There is a nice coffee shop (Cognito) at a nearby shopping complex where you can get a good breakfast if...

While being very basic and rather 'dated' this Motel is in a convenient position. Though it is situated right alongside the main highway, traffic noise is not noticed when in your room. The owner/manager is 'very chatty' and always willing to assist in what ever manner she can. The beds are new, big and comfy, the aircon is also new...

 of 5 bubbles T9757HWmarkh, 31 Oct 2015 | Read review
“Having read the couple of reviews, I was curious to see for myself. I live not far was getting married and just wanted a place to stay for a quiet pre wedding night. I spoke with the owner, yes chatty, but helpful. I did explain my concerns having read the negative reviews and the owner was honest and open. Went out of her way to show me the rooms, most rooms actually. They are yes a little dated, but for value, they were clean, tidy and for price just what I was looking for. I recommended to my family and friends, and people stayed. The motel is extremely quiet , considering it is next to the Bruxner Highway, The beds are all new and extremely comfortable. If there was anything we needed the owner was more than happy to accommodate. Referrals to restaurants etc. The air con was good, basis yes, but when booko9nmg, you already knew it wasn't 5 star. I would stay there again, and would recommend it. For my wedding, the owner even picked flowers from the garden for the day.”
