We had to drive to Sydney from Queensland and Kempsey was the halfway mark. I booked a room over the phone to let them know we would be late and it was no trouble at all to them. Jason said he would stay up and he was there to welcome us and fix the account so we could leave early... More

Arrived late afternoon. Very polite and customer friendly reception - advised where to go for evening meal (notwithstanding Motel also offers a basic evening menu). Room was clean and tidy, bed was comfortable and shower was hot - what more does one what from a three star motel? Would recommend to the weary traveller.

Travelling to Sydney I often overnight in Kempsey. This was the first stay at this establishment and I thoroughly enjoyed the warm reception with a "nothing is any bother attitude, the room was very comfortable and clean. I'm sure that this will not be my last stay.

I was lucky enough to book 2 rooms for 1 night on 27 Dec - very busy period. Jason the owner couldn't have been more helpful. He organised 2 rooms together and called me with a confirmation. Upon arrival he was friendly and informative. The motel was clean and comfortable and had everything that you would find in an expensive... More

This is a great little motel for a nights rest while on the road. Has been renovated and has a new feeling to the rooms. Friendly owners. Easy check in check out. Has foxtel with a big range of channels. Beds very soft.

Just an overnight stop on our way north. Price was reasonable, owners/managers very helpful and friendly and the rooms, two bedroom unit, was very comfortable. Downside was traffic noise and constant dogs barking. After been on the road all day we enjoyed being able to order the Seafood basket for dinner, it hit the spot.
