We stayed 3 nights in this motel. It is a really lovely motel. The Manager is very friendly and helpful. We booked a Riverside suite which was so nice!! Slightly more expensive but well worth it! It lived up to its name and it was beautiful to sit out on the patio overlooking the pretty river and eat our meals... More

Motel was great, family room was small but comfortable. Owner gave us an early check-in which was really appreciated. The only disappointment was that smoking was permitted outside your room (instead of a designated area away from rooms). Our neighbours were very loud and smoked outside our room until quite late which was difficult as I had young children trying... More

I am very hesitant about writing this review after a comment the owner made about people's reviews but that is why it is a review for people to review their stay. We booked online and saw photos and thought it would be a comfortable place to stay but the room was tiny the bed was very hard and had the... More

We stopped off in Kempsey for 3 nights and were pleasantly surprised with our accommodation; clean, quiet and convenient. Each night we were there it was booked out, so the proprietors are doing something right- it is very well maintained and reasonably priced. A good stop off point if you are travelling up or down the coast, and about half... More

My first time here. Good basic accomodation, convenient location, clean & neat! Definitely good value and quiet too, being set back off the road. Book ahead, it seems to be busy. Parking right outside the room. Chatty owner included at no extra charge!

We stayed here for 2 nights with a work crew. Deluxe rooms have river view and breeze. Meals can be delivered to your room from a local restaurant. Room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. BBQ option was great with crockery and cutlery provided. Would stay again. Thank you Hew and Iris.

Thank you for your review. As you mentioned, it is quiet and relaxing here on the Macleay River since Kempsey town centre was bypassed by the new Pacific Highway … which (on the authoritative advice of a certain work crew that stayed with us recently) includes the longest bridge in the Southern Hemisphere!

Discovered by accident, we were very happy with this Motel. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed without being luxurious, just like the whole facility. The bathrooms are modest but clean and fresh with plenty of hot water. The location on the banks of the Macleay River means that it is possible to go for a pleasant walk, or sit and... More

Thank you for your kind words.

Also there is a variety of nearby offsite options,... More

We stayed overnight on a road trip to Queensland. The room rate was reasonable at $119.00 for queen executive. The setting is on the river with nice gardens. There is an outdoor pool, although we didn't use it. The room was very large with flat screen tv and has Table and chairs. The Toilet is separate to the bathroom. Parking... More
