“even worse since rsl took over”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

On the only good side of this motel are the freindly helpful as can be staff,cant fault them at all, now as for the renavations we stayed in the newly renavated rooms over the oct 2012 long weekend & will be our last, we did stay before with the old owners so this isnt our first time here. We took a chance and booked late as there was now where else avalible in gosford for the 3 days so what went from $85 a night for a couple now jumped to $120 a night but 3 nights cost $340 for a couple.Being told we were going into a new deluxe room we got a surprise,fri was hot so we thought we would go for a swim in the pool ,wrong it was green,filter not working or on 1 or the other,and leaves in it now you would think being the long weekend and booked heavly they would of had that cleaned. so we were able to use the spa and pool in the galexy acrossed the road.next go for a shower and after wasting 5 min waiting for hot water there was non.2nd prob so were changed rooms got a larger room no extra charge,prob3 arrived with no sore back leaving very tired and a very sore back would of been comfortabler on floor with a blow up matress as well as the bed being a double not a queen &a new cheap mattress.prob 3 be very careful the tiles in the rooms are so slippery its dangerous especially if you have kids even with dry feet.theres no toaster or microwave to heat anything just a jug.they give you 1 free membership to there club accross the road with 10%off drinks and food but food made us sick the next day and cost like the room expensive & was tough & horrible.then theres the knocking out the back all night at intervals of 3or4 bangs have no idea what it is.the fridge is smaller than an esky inside so dont hope to put to much in it but on the plus side you can buy breakfast at the motel.The walls even tho are brick you can hear the people in the next room.i no since the rsl took over even with the changes it doesnt warent a $35 per night rise and i no a lot of people who book these rooms 12 months in advance after this weekend are looking else where now for better & more reasonable value for money.if you have no where to go & a lot of money stay if not your car probly be more comfortable then there beds.the staff did everything they could even cleaning the pool at 9pm for the Sat so we have no complaint with any of the staff.

I stayed there one night last year in Aug .. I ended up catching viral meningitis after staying there. It seemed to be somewhat clean and didn't seem too bad for the price I was paying until I was in Gosford hospital the night after on a drip being told I need a spinal tap !!!! .. NOT WORTH THE PRICE .. go to the F1 down the road .. its cheaper and at least you don't almost die from staying there
