Full of character and charm. If you want to experience the old world (and have a great sleep) ! Netherby House B&B is perfect. We loved it from the moment we walked in. Wonderful hosts and a great brekkie top it off.

Quaint bush setting overlooking the Macleay River. Stopped there for a delicious lunch in the quiet relaxing atmosphere. Enjoyed the pumpkin and blue cheese tart & chicken filo and beautiful salads. Great coffee and friendly service. Highly recommend this Cafe.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. I was the first ever guest of the new owners Bobi and Richard and had an amazing week-long stay while in town on business. With beautiful Victorian-era rooms (with complementary port and Belgian chocolates!) stepping out onto a deck overlooking the river, Netherby House has a wonderful other-world feel I absolutely loved.

Netherby House is quite a historic house and as such has a lot of character. The room was not large but there was plenty of other spaces to sit and relax both indoors and outside. Richard and Bobbi have only recently taken over the running of Netherby House and they were most hospitable hosts who are looking to make improvements...

What a beautiful house you have, so tastefully decorated and a great location in Kempsey overlooking the river. The rooms are gorgeous and comfortable and even fitted in our two boys as well. They were very accommodating even with our two boisterous boys, and Jasmine made sure that we were very comfortable and had everything we needed. Thank you! Also...

Wow, what a surprise this place was. We were looking for some better accom in Kempsey and this was recommended. Old world charm coupled with great hospitality and even better food. The rooms were comfy with aircon and being able to walk onto the balcony from your room to dinner and breakfast a treat. The bathroom was tight, but very...

Staying here was going back in time to this beautiful charm and comforts of this amazing home on the Macleay River. Great stay once again. Bedding so comfy, with a lovely cooked breakfast for a small extra charge. Much quieter stay than last time as main highway has been diverted around the outskirts of Kempsey. Sitting on front verandah watching...

We were delighted when we arrived at Netherby House B&B by the beautiful gardens, house and furnishings. It's swtting beside the river adds to the places appeal, especially at nightfall with fish leaping in the river and the lights reflecting on the water. What really made our stay however was the friendliness and helpfulness of the welcoming hosts, Jasmin and...

Old and stylish place by the river. It is like to travel back to 1922 and see what was it like to stay in 1922 Premium Accommodation. Everything feels authentic, like mirrors, forks, door keys, etc. Well, despite it is old they managed to keep it very clean and tidy. Also, there were no mosquitos, no flies, no insects. Maybe...

A big thank you to Jasmin for making our stay such a wonderful experience. We were there for New Years Eve and it was a perfect evening. The food is out of this world. Be sure to save room for desert as this alone would deserve a chefs hat in any major city. The quality and subtle flavours are out...
