This is perhaps the best Motel we have stayed in. Positioned on the Pacific Highway 5 kilometres south of the township of Kempsey diagonally across the road from the new Slim Dusty Centre (due for completion at the end of the year). The web site is informative and the New hosts promise hospitality and they deliver with a graciousness we have not seen for a long time.The Reception area is comfortable and welcoming and on my arrival with walking stick in hand reaching the top of the stairs I found the door had been opened by Tracy with a smile as wide as the welcome mat. Inside is the bar, fireplace and restaurant which are in warm, well appointed furniture with excellent views through the windows.Leaving was difficult, it was like leaving home. We will be visiting Crescent Head and South West Rocks on our next visit and guess where we will stay -Yes- The Powerhouse, the home away from home -And don't forget the most important, the rates are excellent.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on 5 acres of manicured bushland, the Kempsey Powerhouse Motel is a quiet place to unwind after a day on the road. It is suitable to sit amongst the trees up the back and enjoy the wildlife that abounds or watch your children kick a ball around in safety well away from the road. We are no longer pet friendly. The motel is also very conveniently located set back from the highway halfway between Sydney and Brisbane. The motel is 500mts from the southern most exit if heading to the north or 1klm only if heading south. The now completed Slim Dusty centre is only 200 mts down the road. The motel is close to beaches and other interesting icons around town. 21 Very clean and spacious rooms, majority are ground floor and others have a maximum of three steps and handrails. Parking outside the door for most rooms. All rooms have had a modernized makeover with the bathrooms being our main priority at present. Ample truck, trailer and caravan/camper parking available near units. A very affordable a'la carte restaurant and bar is available Mon to Sat from 6.00Pm and can vary depending on the season. Closed on Sundays and Pub Hols. Booking a table is recommended on arrival to ensure you do not miss out on a delicious meal. Room service is also an option. A wide variety of Australian meals is offered. Children, romantics and small groups can be catered for. Your hosts, Tracy and Martin, are welcoming folk who enjoy and take pride in caring for the needs of their guests. ... more less
