“Excellent staff and a fantastic place to stay.”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

I travel a lot for work and have stayed in many different places across NSW, motel Kempsey would have to be up there with the best motels. It is without a doubt the best motel to stay in in Kempsey and I would recommend it to anyone.

Every thing said in previous reviews seems to be accurate however .the dogs are wonderful German Shepherds and are great for a pat. Traffic is noisy outside but not able to be heard inside. Staff were friendly and helpful regarding the booking but even lovelier in person. We had a very welcoming greeting, towels and toys for the pool, a tempting in-room menu, great facilities and a lovely, inviting, clean room.
Great BBQ facilities both near the famly rooms and near the pool with plenty of space for mulitple groups if necessary.

It is a motel but one of the nicest, and the people have made it a great experience already.

Room Tip: We had the family room closest to the pool. It opens out to a lovely wooden deck with undercover tab...

First inspection NO ODOURS,mildew old smells or chemical room deodorisers smells,furniture light and clean,the quality of sheets and pillows were excellent and white and the white towels were wHITE and fluffy.All amenities were there. I was impressed ,compared to other Motels we have stayed at. Minimilistic but clean and well maintained. Would book this again.

On our way from Gold Coast to Sydney we stayed in this motel for one night. We were 6 people and had booked a single room for 6 of us. The room was quite large with six beds. It had one bathroom and a small space for kitchen in the corner. It had fridge, microwave oven, electric kettle, crockery, utensils and electric iron. There was ample parking space in front of the building block. The management was quite friendly and helpful. Nice experience.

The noise from trucks on the highway makes it almost impossible to sleep. Paper thin walls. There were dogs kept near reception that barked when guests arrived or departed! My kids freaked out at the huge cemetery behind the motel, almost comical!
To be fair, the room was clean and spacious, but I'd give this one a miss.

This is a pretty basic but good place to stay. Clean, (although not spotless) but certainly clean enough. The rooms were bigger than other family motel suites, there was real milk and even biscuits too :)
the location is not perfect as it's on the main road and the trucks are loud but it's not too bad. We were running 20 minutes late but the hosts were pretty good about that which was nice too. Good place for a cheap stay.
