The Lyre Bird Motel, Mullumbimby: The very best accommodation available

I most certainly would recommend this accommodation to others visiting the area because they went above and beyond the call of service to us. We were in a distressed state and they coped with our late arrival, our lack of booking and all of the extra requests that we piled upon them to help us to get over our ordeal and feel comfortable again. Their website:- - search Lyrebird Motel Mullumbimby

The beds were comfortable, clean and well cared for. They provided air conditioning and ceiling fans and wall heaters (not that we needed that), and while they aren't equipped with a restaurant they provided us with sufficient utensils for us to prepare our own light snack.......that ended up being a banquet with wine and sweets to boot. LOL. Fantastic.

We had booked into a guesthouse (look after ourselves kind of accommodation) but had been mislead by the advertising - which ended up endangering ourselves and our vehicles. I can not possibly recommend the guesthouse to anyone and suggest that anyone visiting the area either visit the above motel (there is one other which is also probably fine), but do not try the guesthouse unless you drive a tank or at least a four wheel drive.

The motel does not have a pool or any magnificent view but the people are fantastic and rooms comfortable.
