I'm rarely surprised by motels but this little one despite it's outside appearance was one of those. Although the painted block walls were very familiar of most I was so happy to see such a clean appearance. Lovely crisp white linen on a great bed with a pillow top and some really nice little touches usually only found in larger...

The hotel walls are paper thin, I could the next rooms conversations. I had to turn the ancient AC unit on to dull the noise. When packing the car to leave a large unrestrained German Shepard entered my room and started eating my breakfast. There are FOUR German Shepard's on the site. Once they start barking forget sleeping. Under the...

We respect our guests opinions but we will not tolerate out right lies and misconceptions. You were charged $50 for extra cleaning and the replacement of one bath mat, one hand towel and one face washer which you had used to clean your muddy mountain bike. We had 5 other mountain bike riders stay for two nights the same as...

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...

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.

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.
