We stayed at this motel on our way to Queensland,we had hoped the Chinese/Thai restaurant on the premises would be open however not so on Sundays, take note! We stayed in a King room which was clean and comfortable, updated furnishings and although near MacDonalds we heard nothing at all to disturb our sleep. In all we would consider staying... More

I just want to say I totally disagree with the previous review. I recently stayed at this Motel only to find that my room was very clean & very comfortable! The reception staff were extremely helpful and very courteous. This motel is in walking distance of shops and eateries but when I mentioned we wanted to eat at the local... More

It is next door to a McDonald's, so expect lots of traffic noise and randoms yelling out. it is also very close to a woolworths supermarket which was great for our job. The room was old and tired, had a microwave and kettle ( which was dirty ) but the carpet was dirty, bathroom not much better. The wifi was... More

We drive regularly between Sydney and the Gold Coast. First time I stayed. Location is great but the room is tired and over priced the Queen Size bed and single were uncomfortable. Kitchenette was a microwave, kettle and toaster. Clean and convenient if that is what you need next to Maccas and close to Woolworths

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 booked a room with queen and single bed and upon arrival was told i could have queen and double for same price plus the tariff $110 included 2 continental brekkies. Bonus! 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
