“Cheap Hotel”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

Room was clean, air con old and noisy, carpet a bit smelly, bed lumpy, but what can you expect from a cheap motel, its just a place to sleep in overnight. The location is ok, only stayed there because it is close to go to the footy at Bluetongue Stadium.

Room Tip: Cant help, its only for a cheap overnight stay

Reviewed 10 March 2013

Another stop-over on our road trip to Sydney was at the Ibis in Gosford, Formerly Formula 1 this hotel is the latest addition to the Accor chain and it was priced to suit our budget, The rooms were clean, small but comfortable. Host Sam was approachable and all the staff were talkative and friendly. The $7 breakfast was adequate and fresh,(juices, toast, cereal, coffee and tea in copious amounts). Could only swing half a cat in the bathroom but who cares. We don't have a cat! And the bed was very very comfortable.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the far end of either floor.

This was a nice place, basic however it was clean, comfortable and quiet. We had booked a family room but this room was not available when we got there however we were offered an interconnecting room which suited us better. So very happy with the service we received.
