My title above is Appearances Aren't Everything.. the same as don't judge a book by it's cover. The Colonial Court Motor Inn in Kempsey looks beautiful in the pictures. These draw you in. They did that to us. We arrived and it looked so lovely that it actually eased my headache for a little and I forgot I needed to...

Beautiful river, nice looking motel clean and tidy, stunning park like settings. Stopped here as we could park our ute and trailer on site. BONUS Room quite nice but not "deluxe" No WiFi in room. I'm not standing in the car park to access the net to pay bills. Swimming pool out of order. Fridge not working. Bit disappointed overall.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
