Pulled in late on my way through looking for something clean, and quiet. Found it. The rooms range from budget through to river view, $10 increase with each upgrade. Room was clean and basic. Bed was comfortable and the shower was, wet. Bathroom was very 'cozy' but the rest of the room was spacious and quiet. The motel is great... More

The customer service was excellent. The rooms are very clean and do not smell. We ordered dinner through reception from 'The Flaming Steer which was excellent. Free WiFi made our son very happy. We could not fault this motel and would happily stay here again.

We driving through and stopped at 2am with no reservation. The owner was not fussed we arrived at this hour and found us a room in minutes with bedding for the whole family. The room was clean and spacious. Property is large and looks beautiful. We enjoyed our short stay.

There must have been a time warp crossing the bridge into Kempsey. Driving up to the motel, it looked nice enough. the over patronising "host" needs a few lessons in listening to your guests without speaking over the top of them in a over rehearsed drivel about tomato sauce (apparently this was part of the TV instructions). Apart from being... More

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
