This hotel is a good half way stop over when travelling from NSW to QLD. Rooms are old, original and clean. Air conditioners are old box type and very noisy. Wifi is good and onsite upstairs is a nice BYO Chinese restaurant. 5 minute walk to Woolworths.

A nice way to break up the drive from Brisbane to Sydney. Very easy to find - situated on the main street heading into Kempsey from the north - with dedicated parking for each unit. The rooms are large, clean and well kept. The motel is situated within walking distance of the main town area, or a very quick drive...

Very good budget priced motel roughly half way between Sydney and Brisbane so good place to break our trip. Motel is old but has been very well renovated Tony was very friendly and helpful. Rooms at the back are really quite and well worth paying an extra $10.00 for. As we make this trip often we will be staying here...

Good value budget style accomodation. Good location . Most impressed when the staff range us to let us know that we had left a jumper behind ..... they then posted the item to us at no charge. Great to see some old fashion service.

We visited Kempsey and located this motel for a one night stay last year. The female manager was friendly and helpful. We managed to get a King room for $100.00 which was quite reasonable. We found the room a little small due to the large bed but it had all the facilities we required for one night. We got a...

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment on our way north to QLD. Apartment was spacious and plenty of bedding options. The beds were comfy too. The place was like a rabbit warren (which the kids loved). The whole apartment was very dated (thinking 70's/80's) which would not be a problem if it wasn't for the cleanliness. It wasn't filthy but...

Got the feeling that this motel is a book online motel, It was filling up with online/phone bookings and there didn't to be to many walk in booking rooms. In saying that the staff where helpful on our arrival. Rooms were clean and tidy, had adjoining rooms for our family. Good for a stop over stay.

Hi Karen, Thank you for your feedback. The property bookings here come mainly from return guests and referrals. The total online bookings are less than 15% of our business and these are mainly weekend bookings. The rooms have just had new carpet and the renovations are continually happening.

On our travels north we had a stopover at this motel. Away from the road, so it was quiet. Clean and very reasonably priced. Pleasant reception. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed but otherwise couldn't fault.
