Our stay was fantastic, we booked only an hour before we arrived and were greeted with a friendly smile. Our room was comfortable and warm, and there was plenty of parking. After a long drive it was great to relax. The only downside to this hotel is the showers, which has always been an issue here - its not possible... More

I stayed at Ibis budget Gosford recently for 2 nights. Reasonable price, clean room, located close to the city, hospital.. 20-30 min drive to the beach.. 1 hr from Sydney airport. Well, there's no lift. I had to carry all my luggages to 3rd floor via stairs. We're not allowed to use kettle, hair dryer, iron clothes etc due to... More

We chose the Ibis Budge at Gosford as it was across the road from the baseball fields. As the name says, it is budget accommodation, but it is good value for money. It is clean, and the staff are friendly. The rooms are very compact but had everything that we needed. Kettles are available from the office so you can... More

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...

Having stayed at 13 hotels in NSW over 3 years. The Ibis Budget is extremely good value, the staff are friendly and the rooms are secure. 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
