While this type of hotel is not anywhere near the top of the list, it is great value for money and the change from Formulae 1 to Ibis has definitely improved room quality. It is close to all amenities and the rooms are clean and tidy. While there was an issue with excess chlorine being used this has been addressed... More

Stayed here for five days while relocating. Situated within walking distance of the cbd and the train station and there is also a bus stop not far from the hotel. Situated behind a 24hr mc donalds. We were on the ground floor so we couldn't really open the blind without everyone in the car park of mcdonalds and the hotel... More

Travelling on business I only look for a comfortable bed, a good shower and a clean quiet room. The Ibis Budget Gosford fitted these requirements perfectly, the bed was queen and the sheets were good quality, however it is a no frills room, two towels, small bathroom, no bath mat, soap but nothing else, a small chair and desk and...

The staff go out of their way to help you and they take the time to find out how your experience was. You will find it hard to get a hotel of this quality... More

For the purposes of its definition, the Ibis Budget Gosford met all the requirements. For the purposes of our Easter holiday getaway, it was definitely not the place to stay. Perhaps, my mistake more than the hotel's. I can say that the room was clean and rather spartan-like. Just a room for sleeping with a small shower/toilet room. Room service... More

We booked into the budget ibis as it was half way between where we'd been(an engagement party), and where we were going(Home). We didn't need anywhere special, so knowing that all we needed was a place to sleep we were happy to stay in a more affordable place. It was immaculately clean, the staff on the desk were pleasant and... More
