Thank you for a meal that was well above average & a pleaseant surprise in the ‘motel environment'. Please note that if someone is having chemotherapy like I am, ANY food missing from the plate is a tribute to your cooking skills.


Julia Wood & Friend.........Surry Hills NSW

The Best In Town     7th March 2010

Being on the road a lot for work, there is nothing better than discovering a place that is a home away from home...and the Dawson is just that. Great home cooked breakfasts and dinners, lovely clean rooms and attentive, personal service have all added up to me going back to the Dawson many times.
I would recommend the Dawson to any of my friends and colleagues and, in fact, I have on many occasions. The owners, Pete and Gaz will really look after you. Go the Savoury Omelette!

Trev Preston             Wollongong NSW

Lismore’s Best    6th March 2010

As a travelling Rep, I have stayed at many motels across the State and I have to say the Dawson is up there with the best. The meals are brilliant, the presentation outstanding and the service is unbeatable. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners who have never been anything but incredible when I have stayed there. It is due to their service and the way they run the Motel that makes me keep coming back when I'm in town. That, and the best brekkie in Lismore.

Sweeney            Sydney NSW

Welcoming            15th June 2010

Welcoming hosts, clean & comfortable accommodation and superb food.
Would definitely stay again. Our stay was relaxing & enjoyable.
I googled Lismore motels and was impressed by the featured photo.

D.E. (Beth) Latemore        Warwick Qld

Thankyou so much        1st June 2010

Thankyou so much, the food was lovely and generous serves, always fresh & hot. The bacon was lovely, enough too make lunch as I’m packing it each day.
Made my stay.

Debbie Cochrane        Leumeah NSW

Friendly people, great meals    20th May 2010

My wife & I were so happy to have stayed because of the service, the great meals and the friendly people.
Very clean & well serviced rooms.
We stayed 3 days and the meals were the same quality each day. Well done Pete & Garry.

Robyn & Colin Christensen    Toowoomba Qld

Been before             May 2010

We have stayed at the Dawson Motor Inn before and found the rooms clean & comfortable, owners friendly with good service.
We like the location in Lismore. It is also very quiet.

Paul & Barbara        Brisbane Qld

Excellent            12th April 2010

Excellent customer service at reception and both the hosts are friendly & helpful.
Lovely rooms, not the same boring bed covers. Great colour scheme and decent size towels. I discovered Dawson Motor Inn simply by driving by.

Robyn Brentall        Brisbane QLD

Awesome Service        7th April 2010

Awesome service along with very genuine people, very clean & tidy rooms, enjoyable.
I would definitely stay again since the customer service is excellent, even the cleaners were happy & friendly.
I found out about Dawson Motor Inn simply because it was the first motel I came across entering Lismore. Has to visit family in hospital

 The Best, Just wonderful‎- Kip‎    12 Jan 2009

I would like to say after looking on line and reading the review of this Motor Inn I decided to book in after travelling for 2 days and it was 9pm on a Monday night.

I have never been more pleased and welcomed when we arrived and even has great parking for car & large horse float or trailers.

Peter is just a delight and nothing is a problem even late on a Monday night. The rooms are above a 3.5 star rating in my opinion and so crisp and clean. Customer Service is lacking in this day and age and it is just a breath of fresh air when you come across people like Peter & Garry.

My husband & I will now always be planning any of our roadtrips around being able to stay at the Dawson Motor Inn @ Lismore. Cheers Melissa (Dubbo NSW)

Excellent Place to Stay‎ - Don‎ - 25 Mar 2009

I was tour leader of a group of 30 who stayed 3 days in Lismore. Our decision to stay at Dawson Motor Inn proved wise.

Peter Gerstenberg and Garry Jones were terrific hosts, very welcoming and ensured our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. We made a decision at late notice to have all 30 breakfasts at Dawson Motor Inn instead of elsewhere which again proved to be the right decision. Peter and Garry set about providing 30 breakfasts at no fuss, on time, delicious, high on quality and quantity. Made our start to each day a positive one.

We also left behind luggage by mistake, the guys acted swiftly to ensure we retrieved the items before we caught our next flight out of Coolangatta. I would recommend Dawson Motor Inn to anyone wanting a good, comfortable and relaxing stay in Lismore. Don Mann (Auckland, NZ)

Great Service‎ - Sonya‎ - 21 Apr 2008

A fairly standard 3.5 Star Motor Inn but what sets it apart are the friendly hosts who seem to be more than happy to do anything they can to make your stay comfortable.

I also recommend the room service meals - simple home-cooked style food at reasonable prices - very reasonable for room service. Conveniently located, free wireless broadband and a great pool.

Well Run and Friendly‎ - Rohan‎ - 9 Jul 2009

I stayed at the Dawson Motor Inn for 2 weeks on a business trip. The motel is very comfortable and in a handy position, but the best feature is certainly the service. I don't know when they sleep, but the hosts Peter and Garry seem ever present and always friendly. There has obviously been a lot of thought and planning put into the procedures, as this little motel runs like a well oiled machine. I worked in hotels for nearly ten years, and I know an organised outfit when I see it. Highly recommended.
