I have never stayed at such a place with such lovely staff. Understood my need for space because I had a porta cot and got a free upgrade. The rooms were beautiful and felt so comfortable and relaxed. They even brought there parrot out for my son to see and his whole face lit up. Will be going there always.

I cannot pick one negative about my stay here. Room was very clean, bed comfy, heaps of room and love the open shower. No curtain fights! Plenty of... More

Have stayed a couple of times at this motel and it's a great country motel located next to the river and within easy walking distance of the town. Has quite a few rooms and is friendly, clean, reasonably modernised and priced. Kempsey is a quiet town as the main highway bypasses it so no noisy trucks passing through at any... More

Staying for two nights while travelling to dive in Sth West Rocks, we found this motel very clean and well presented. The only downside was the foul language used by the cleaners during the day and I had to ask them to mind their language as my ten yr old daughter could hear every second word which was the f...

The motel is next door to Woolies and McDonald's and a very short walk to the CBD. Staff at the front desk are friendly and helpful and even held on to something I left in the room after check out and called to track me down. WiFi signal was good and the room was well cleaned with toiletries restocked appropriately.... More

Friendly receptionist. The room was clean and pleasant. Parking right outside. Kempsey is now off the highway so nice and quiet. Bathroom modern with a good exhaust fan. Comfortable bed. Most importantly the jug fitted under the tap! Real test for a good motel. Will no doubt stay there again.

We stopped at the City Centre Motel on our way from the Gold Coast to Sydney and chose this motel as it was the only one available! We had room 49 which is upstairs. Some rooms are so make sure that you ask for a ground floor room if you can't use stairs. The room was clean and practical: 1... More

Thank you for your comments about how tidy & clean your room was. The room that you stayed is built above the ground and there are about 10 steps to get up to it. The City Centre Motel is a 3 1/2 Star motel, not serviced apartments, and has an on sight restaurant so does not have crockery & cutlery... More

On the way to Gold coast, got one night break here. Although I didn't expect much, surprisingly this turned out one of the best motels. I got everything I would need, services, amenities, information. It was really a very pleasant experience.
