One of the worst experiences. After we booked we called and was confirmed over phone that they got microwave in common area. We were travelling with our 2 year old kid and had to heat the milk and her food. Once we reached we were advised by reception that microwave available between 7am -7pm (which is fine). My wife went to heat the milk and baby food and had to go through kevin who treated her quite badly beacuse she wanted to use microwave. Next morning my wife went to heat milk and baby food again and got the simialar bad behaviour. She was even told to buy her own microwave if she had to heat. Most horrible, disgusting, unethical ,unaustralian thing we have seen in our entire life. We have a stayed in 3 motels during this easter holiday, the difference in customer service is massive.it almost spoiled our whole holiday. We did not expected a 5 start treatment in a cheap motel, but atleast not this type of behaviour and not after confirming on phone. Will not recommend this crappy place at all. Would have given minus score if possible.

We are sorry, but we don't have a common area, but we do have 2 mircowaves to go to rooms, but no one asked us for one, and they where already out with workers. The owner does not want to buy 31 mircowaves as we have a restaurant on site. If you required one, you could have booked two other motels in the area, but you would have paid extra for them.

Late Booking for Primex

Pros: Easy parking, quiet, good, central location, comfortable room with an excellent shower!
Cons: Nothing that comes to mind. Generally happy with the quality of the room that I had booked.
Location: Handy to the centre of town for meals. Also very close to the pool, which I will take advantage of in summer.
I was in the area for Primex and had left the booking too late, so this isn't the hotel that I would usually stay at in this area. I was very happy with the room and the location. I would definitely stay here again next time I visit Lismore.
