Family owned Motel, booked me in no problem before 2pm. Have a room towards the back of the hotel, so no road noises can be heard. 1 star lost because the cleaning detergent smell in the room was a bit overwhelming, left the door open for an hour or so and it was ok, but not totally gone.

This motel is only a short walk from the Slim Dusty Centre in South Kempsey and provides great service and clean spacious rooms with a good sized bathroom. Parking is right at the door. Sadly the WiFi did not work. Breakfast is available, there is no on-site restaurant although the owner did offer to arrange some delivery to the room. We drove a few minutes into the heart of Kempsey and had a great dinner at the local club. The motel is only a short drive from the Kempsey CBD.

Dark furnishings made the decor feel dated, but the carpet was new and everything was clean. The bed was very comfortable. It's location near the South Kempsey exit and service centre makes it quick and easy to get on/off the motorway without going through town, so it makes an ideal stopover.

What a find. Such comfortable rooms. Large room and bathroom. Jason was so generous helping us. They provided us with delicious meals. We can highly recommend this place just off the highway. Just near the golf course.

Everything a weary traveler would want for an overnight break on a long trip. Clean, spacious, well equipped rooms. Helpful owner and even a room service dinner menu if you don't want to drive any more (we didn't). Good quality beds and bedding - could hardly be bettered in this price bracket.
