Always a clean and tidy establishment, everything that is needed for a short stay. Could be ashtrays provided for all out door tables, for the convenience of those guests who need them.

Top spot in Lismore!

Pros: Location and the lack of traffic noise.
Cons: I can't think of anything which *needs* improvement but perhaps a light over the vanity basin would be a worthwhile upgrade.
Location: I know nothing about activities.....we were there for a medical appointment.
We arrived late on a Sunday afternoon, staying overnight so that an early-morning hospital appointment would not inconvenience us in having to travel 75 kms very early in the morning. Quiet! So quiet at night, without any traffic noise whatsoever. No trouble at all in sleeping. A comfortable bed, an efficient reverse-cycle aircon unit to keep the room warm and it was a very peaceful night's sleep. An excellent evening meal (delivered to the room) which saved us having to go down the road to a take-away or look for a restaurant (not many restaurants open on a Sunday). An excellent breakfast the next morning with hot, fresh plunger coffee. Very friendly and helpful staff, who made us feel very welcome. The next time we have to be at Lismore hospital for a 7:30 AM appointment we will do exactly the same thing and stay at the Lismore Wilson once again.

Still a great place to stay

Pros: Comfortable, quiet and value for money
Cons: No I don't think there is.
Location: Some good restaurants and the Workers Club
I first stayed at the Wilson when it first opened over 20 years ago, it was great then and has been kept in great condition. The staff are friendly, the rooms comfortable and quiet. I believe it is value for money and would recommend it without hesitation.

The room was good, the beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The only issue was the noise from above was bad and shaking the light fixtures
