Reviewed April 6, 2015

This should really be viewed as "bed for rent" rather than a full hotel accommodation. It does its job without bells and whistles. We stayed on a Wednesday night so there was not noise issues with McDonalds being in front of the hotel. Bed was comfortable although the bunks were rather squeaky for the kids. Perfect for a pit stop.

We stopped off in Gosford on the way down to Sydney. After a long drive the Ibis was just what was needed. A cheap stay, but clean rooms and helpful staff, who directed us towards some good places to eat that evening. The Internet is limited to the lobby, and is free for 30 mins, otherwise be prepared to pay...

Stayed here with my daughter in January 2015. Found if clean and affordable, the hosts were friendly and helpful and surprisingly quiet for its location. Rooms are small and this hotel is ideal for those who want somewhere affordable to sleep between days out. Communal fridge in the common area was useful but some kind of shared kitchen facility would...

I've stayed here on a number of occasions when I've been visiting Gosford but no longer than just the one night. On each of my visits I've found the motel to be always clean and neat, the front desk staff always friendly and helpful. Whilst the rooms are a little on the smaller side, I don't have a problem with...

Wow ... This hotel is what I would imagine Formula One hotels to be like..... Except that I have heard Formula One's can sleep 3 people so it has to be bigger than my room at Ibis. There is no room for bedside tables so your clock is mounted on the wall under the TV. My window looks onto Macdonalds...

Hotel owner delightful, room great. I have stayed there a few years ago and it was extremely loud. New owners have noise restrictions in place which was awesome,. Still some noise but a lot better.. Bed was extremely comfortable. As a travel agent I will definitely recommend this hotel to my clients

We had one of the larger rooms with a double and a set of bunk beds and we found this to be much better for 3 adults that the smaller rooms with the overhead beds.

After a long drive from Bega, my husband and I were desperate to find a place to stay for the night, before pressing on to Coffs Harbour the next day.
