Hotel's Favourite
Was very pleasantly surprised when we arrived, from the friendliness of Ashleigh on reception to the lovely large clean rooms. The bed was so comfortable with pillows to die for, I slept like a baby😍.We ordered breakfast to be delivered to our room, an omelette for me and bacon and eggs for my partner, both beautifully cooked. We visit Lismore quite regularly so I know where I’ll be staying in the future.

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
