I stayed here whilst in town for business. $100 for a night was a bit much. The room was small, clean but for the rate could be updated a bit. Found a few holes about the room and the ants were off-putting. Good for 1 night quick stop over.

Stopped here on a return leg to Sydney for work. Manager was very friendly and polite. Room was a little small but clean, comfortable and had all the appropriate creature comforts one would expect. Being beside the river was a plus and zero traffic noise was also a noteworthy factor. Price may be a little high for what you get,... More

Management staff are new to premises, but are keen to please guests by giving complimentary fruit juice upon arrival. Staff are friendly and obliging. Gardens are well manicured and maintained. Rooms and bathroom are very clean and hygenic. Also are reasonably well sized. Very quite with minimal traffic noise as motel is set well back from main road. Motel is... More

The reception is located in an old home and the motel units are located quite a long way off the former highway, so it is peaceful and the property backs on to the river. I had a room at the front that had a front verandah, so car is parked at the back. Check-in was no problem and a service... More

As Kempsey is the half way point from Sydney to the Queensland boarder, we stopped off for one night. Kempsey motels in general are all much nicer to stay in since the highway bypass has been opened (for some years now). No more noisey trucks at 3:00am. With plenty of highway construction going on, unfortunately we had workers staying in... More

Let's be real, these places are often awful. This one is clean, tidy and very very quiet (being next to the river). The room was comfortable enough and the shower etc was all just fine. We were worried about this stay as it was all we could get in Kempsey. It turned out to be a very pleasant stay. Note... More

It's a pleasant change to stay in a motel that isn't right beside a busy road. Motel set at back of block on bank of river. Rooms were old but clean. Well priced accommodation. Aircon was a bit noisy. Fridge wasn't switched on when I arrived which was a bit annoying.

Spent a night here as a stopover, and was impressed with the cleanliness. The motel is a little dated, but the rooms were clean and comfortable. The receptionist was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast arrived hot, and on time. Meals are made at a nearby restaurant/pub and delivered to your room. The motel is set back from the road, which... More

Stayed as a single for 1 night. Chose to leave the highway as I thought the town might be struggling after the recent bypass. Small room,clean & well equipped. BUT.... I was charged $94.05 including an NRMA discount & a Senior's discount. Should have asked the price first.
