Clean and comfortable with good sized rooms, ample parking, set back from the road on the banks of the Macleay River, this motel provides good value for money. Our room is a double and comes with a small table and chairs and a separate two-seater lounge. Located just a kilometre north of the town centre, it is also quiet. They... More

I stayed in this motel in late 2914, and needed to stay in Kempsey again in June 2016. I chose the Colonial again, as it is in a quiet location minutes from the towns Centre. The owners are friendly and welcoming. The rooms are clean & comfortable, shower has good water pressure that is nice and hot. This motel has... More

This motel is located on the banks of a river. So a lovely view to enjoy with a glass of wine. Stayed in a family room. It was clean and quiet. Ample parking available directly at the front of the room. The reception on arrival was not particularly welcoming but they also didn't waste any time. The general feeling on... More

We stayed in room 25. It is 5 star. Excellent room, view, balcony, clean, comfortable. Book it if you can as it could be the best room in Kempsey. We prefer to stay in cabins and find motel rooms a bit close. In most of the rooms you will get to know your neighbours. This is why I am giving... More

Spent 3 nights at the Colonial Court and could not fault the friendly service or neat and tidy rooms. The location is close enough to town to access shops and restaurants but still in a quiet and peaceful location.

Although room was adequate and quiet, the staff are difficult to deal with despite smiles. Everything was difficult or a problem to them l. No TV signal, no free internet as promised. Every issue too hard to deal with. The bed was hard also. I will be staying elsewhere next time.

We feel this guest review is inaccurate and unfair to our staff … The guest was upset on arrival (quite understandable, but due to a problem of her own making), and she did not raise any other stay-related complaints with our staff (despite her implication here that she did): (1) Guest was initially frustrated and upset at Reception check-in because...
