Stayed at the Motel Kempsey for 3 nights. I arrived 3½ hours ahead of schedule, and I was able to occupy my room immediately. D.I.Y. Laundry only $5 for full load wash & dry. Room was spotless with a full load of coffee, sugar and tea sachets. Room also had toaster, kettle and microwave. Ironing board in the wardrobe. Also... More

I recently attended a wedding in Kempsey and Motel Kempsey was recommended by the bride and groom. It was very reasonably priced and extremely clean, neat and tidy. There was complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits along with a small gift pack of chocolate! We had a lovely time at the wedding and slept very well at the Motel Kempsey a... More

I recently stayed at the Kempsey Motel for a week. It had been promoted as a budget Motel of 2.5 to 3 stars. Whilst it wasn't a five star motel it certainly was surprisingly good. I would say more like 3.5 stars. It was very clean. The sheets were crisp. The linen was changed as required by us. The room... More

Stayed here for a night arriving later in the evening. Pleasant welcome and no trouble. Room was clean with good wifi and television. Very comfortable bed and quiet sleep. Liked the complimentary chocolates as well. Would recommend this to others.

we could check in late and the man at reception was terribly rude. We got to the motel at 21:30 and the reception was closed, there came a man and opened! he was upset by we disturbed him. He was also intimidating! We can not recommend anyone to stay there when we got this round! We were very disappointed!

Firstly thank you for reviewing our Motel without actually ever having a booking with us. 90% of Motels in Australia have office hours of 7.00 am - 9.00 pm as requested by membership of AAA tourism body. So firstly when a potential guest turns up unannounced outside of office hours they should be prepared to take a room especially if... More

The food is excellent and although I have not tried everything on the menu what I have tried is superb.The staff have always been friendly, courteous and level of service is always top shelf!

We booked a double room for 1 night due to previous positive reviews. I'm not sure which rooms others stayed in but our rooms were nothing like what I'd read about. The rooms had not been maintained: 2 of the window winders weren't there so we couldn't open or close them, the air con in the main room was a... More

Perhaps you should not be so quick to put down someone's livelihood. We suggest that anal people who think the whole world is allergy infested stay home in their little bubble. You were rude right from the very first phone call to book and obviously nothing has changed. Please do not try to book here again. More

Stayed in a family room which was immaculately clean and tidy. The managers were a lovely couple who obviously take pride in their work. Both the kids room and bedroom had TV's and the whole unit had been decorated in a modern style. It was a great last night of our holiday.
