I stayed there with my husband and we both enjoyed our stay. The staff was laid back and friendly. They gave us recommendations where can we stop next for the best value. Also, the room was clean and cosy, so I'm sure we'll be back!

Rooms were spotless and the beds were very comfortable. Very nice setting in the riverside rooms. Bathrooms made the room feel very modern. Not a fan of the "art" on the wall in the room i stayed in but not enough to deduct points.

The room was very quiet and clean with a lovely view of the Macleay River. There was outside seating to enjoy time outside viewing the river. At night it was lovely with the full moon rising across the other side of the river. We had the attached restaurant deliver our meal and it was very nicely presented, very plentiful and...

Travelling from Brisbane to Katoomba we stopped for a night about half way in Kempsey. About the first place for accommodation as we approached the town and a welcome sight after a long drive. The rooms were clean, comfortable and basic. We ordered breakfast for the next morning to be served in our rooms. The stay was extremely well priced...

Quite old budget motel. Bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. The rating of the motel at reception was 3.5 stars but it was no where near the standard of 3.5 star motels I have been to. Probably 2 or 2.5 stars. The shower was old with a curtain with basic cake of soap and a squeeze bottle of...

Moon River Motor Inn is handily located just north of Kempsey town centre, on the highway, with easy access to services and food options. We booked the 3 bedroom apartment which is a great option for a family group. Two rooms with double beds and one room with two singles but you could comfortably fit a few more in. All...

Finding a motel online that wasn't booked out on New Year's Day was impossible so calling the Moon River direct was the way to go, we got a queen exec room at good rates, room was immaculate as was bathroom. Ate dinner at motel restaurant which was also very good. Although slightly slow on service the food was lovely with...

Easy to find on the main road but away from any traffic noise. Great food in the onsite restaurant and rooms are a good size. Very reasonable rates. Breakfast is only served to the room but was prompt and enjoyable with outdoor eating at your own table by the river. Outlook over the river from rear is delightful. Will stay...
