I/We liked the gardens and surrounds and that it was well off the road. Bed was comfortable and the room a good size.. All was well - would stay there again.

The man at the reception was not normal, he was taking like mad man who had not spoken to some for long time. his humour was not what I was expecting. I had a tired family who want to get to bed after 5 hour drive which was made harder by his small talk. I will not stay at this place again and will not recommend as well.

It’s far enough back from the road to be nice and quiet. It backs onto the river which is nice.

Quite, clean and comfortable. Hotel is on river bank and has barbecue facilities. You can sit outside and enjoy the nature. Close to Kempsey CBD. Beaches are 20 to 30 minutes drive depending on which beach you are going to. Location is halfway between Sydney and Brisbane. Kempsey is a nice place to take a break if you driving between these cities.
