“Immaculately clean comfortable motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

We recently stayed at The Gosford Palms as a stop over travelling from Melbourne to Gold Coast. We didn't pre book but were welcomed by the friendly owner and given a room immediately.. The rooms are immaculate and THE cleanest motel I have stayed in in a long time. Good sized rooms and large spacious bathrooms with lovely thick towels and complimentary toiletries. Located close to shops, fast food outlets and clubs. We dined at the nearby club which offered us a discount on presentation of our room key. Very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend this motel and definitely would stay again. Good rates. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: We had room 12 ground floor queen and single beds

A little Oasis in Gosford! Being from out of town, & not used to the traffic & general bedlam, that represents Sydney and surrounds, found this little gem, thanks again to Trip Advisor.
The rooms are large, and well appointed, with enough room to spread out and work, or just enjoy with your partner (can swing the proverbial cat if one wishes) The attention to detail in the room regarding cleanliness, & polish has to be seen to be believed. Excellent free Wi-Fi, good medium sized fridge in room, access to microwave in laundry room, & a good friendly welcome.
Quality Iron (not a Tiffany piece of crap, with burnt pieces of the last poor guests shirts burnt to the bottom) Makes me a very happy camper I stayed here! recommend you do to, next time you have to visit.
I truly believe this to be excellent value.

I stayed one night at Gosford Palms Motor Inn recently and would highly recommend it. Its clean, in a quiet location and very comfortable. Its in walking distance to the train station and local restaurants. The owners were very friendly and helpful with any enquiries that I had. I didn't have time to take advantage of the pool but it looked very inviting and relaxing. I will be back in Gosford later this year and will definitely be staying at this motel.

While travelling it was very late and we decided to stop here at the last minute. We chose this accommodation through the great reviews on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. As B&B owners our standards are pretty high and all of our standards were met. We arrived after closing time and when we rang the bell the owner answered with a smile. When we entered the room we noticed it was spotlessly clean and being off the Main road it was very quiet. Price was good too.
We had everything we needed for the night and had a toaster and kettle so we could have a quick brekky in the morning. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Stayed here for the long weekend. I picked this motel based on TripAdvisor reviews plus its reasonable rates and location. Most Gosford motels are on the busy highway while this is still close to town centre but you can't hear the highway.

The buildings are 1970s motel standard brown brick but inside have very high quality modern fittings. The bathrooms have had new shower screens and taps etc, but the funky retro tiles and brick wall have been left in (at least in our room!). I love it! Gives it a bit of character without being dated in the bad way.

Everything is spotlessly clean. The beds have good medium firmness mattresses, great pillows and super quality sheets. Seriously, these are the dense weave thick cotton sheets like your great grandma would have dreamed to have in her trousseau - you can't buy these retail anymore. (Pro tip: those "soft" 1000TC sheets you got are not going to last 5% of the time these sheets will.)

We ordered breakfast for one of the mornings and it was delivered on time, hot and tasty - and about the same price as an average café.

The pool looked as scrupulously clean as everything else but sadly we did not have time to try it out!

There was lots of cupboard space in our family room as well as a decent size tv in each with basic Foxtel channels.

Like most motel stays we didn't have a lot of interaction with any staff or owners but when we did they were lovely and friendly.

This place was easily the same or better standard than any 4-star hotel I've been in. Highly recommended!

If your looking for a quiet,very clean,friendly reception and good location, this is the motel for you. Stayed 2 nights recently and could not fault this establishment. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.
