Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Have stayed at the Galaxy several times when visiting family in Australia, so obviously rate it very highly. We always manage to get the same upper room which is a good size with comfortable arm chairs. The room overlooks the pool area which has a few sunbeds and there is also a hot tub. The Galaxy is situates at the rear of the Gosford RSL Club and at present a new club building is being built on the old club car park. The building work which is scheduled for completion March this year has been on going on our last two visits, but has not caused us any inconvenience. Work does not start early morning. The location is ideal for us as we use the RSLfacilities for meals and drinks in an evening and weekends. We found all of the Galaxy staff to be extremely polite and friendly with rooms and pool area cleaned to a high standard. We consider the motel to be excellent value for money and would not consider staying anywhere else when in Gosford.

Great motel within walking distance to all amenities. The room was perfect for a short stay and the staff were excellent and very nice to speak to. They go out of their way to help you. Being affiliated with the RSL, they are only a few steps to great meals at excellent members prices and to try your luck with the meat raffle or pokies. The rooms were in great condition and there was many options for in-room breakfast or dinner. Definitely recommend to anyone as a halfway point between the NSW Northern Coast and NSW Southern Coast or if you are staying for a few nights in West Gosford.

We stayed 19/07/23 I wasn’t going to review this place, but when I was woken at 6.30 am by construction site on a nearly 8 story building I thought it wasn’t fair to not warn others. No Look, I’m fairly sure this was once a great place to spend a night or two, it is now the center of a VERY NOISY, DUSTY, industrial construction site. We stayed as the workers had gone home when we arrived late arvo and thought we would have been told if the place was uninhabitable. Then today, I checked the pricing and realised we were charged $170 a night on Bookings. Com. Silly us, we should have been more diligent as the going price on other sites was around $140. Nope, no discount at this place. So we were given our upstairs room a floor up by the very lovely office staff.(the last available room) I suspect the majority housed the building workers. The room was ok. The cement mixer 3 metres away under the crane next to the workers huts and what appeared to be toilet blocks, which literally were placed against the building and the scraping sound of what we think was a digger(but was too loud to be) was not one bit ok. Please see my photos below. I kid you not, this was beyond taking the Mickey. AVOID this place. The staff were lovely so they can have the 1 ⭐️

EVERYTHING is PERFECT from reception to leaving. Staff are exceptional, bed is fantastic. best 2 night's sleep on our trip. Sooo Quiet. I have already booked our next stay in September later this year. We always stay here when visiting family at Sydney & central coast. Pool was great. The RSL club next door is great for meals & you don't have to drive anywhere.

Friendly service from reception to cleaners. Nice big clean room. Comfy beds. Quiet stay even though not too far from main road, it was far enough. Rsl so handy , two minutes away. A small walk to woolies metro for essentials. Parking was plentiful, even found a spot on new years eve late arrival home. Especially loved the pool ! Would recommend and will be going back.

Stayed one night only. Executive room on ground floor as requested. Reception and housekeeping staff very good. Under pressure accomodating people who had been flood affected, but carried out with professionalism. Handy to exisiting RSL Club for meals etc. Quiet room even though new Club is under construction. Good bed, very clean. Only negative, shower gel container on wall was totally empty. But housekeeping was under pressure to have the room ready for us, so forgiven, not a big issue given the circumstances (flooding etc in region).

Short stay for myself and my wife, what a wonderful surprise, the staff were friendly and approachable, the convenience of the club along with the membership was an added bonus and the motel location was central for everything we wanted to do whilst we were there. The retail outlets within walking distance was great. The room service was excellent and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. Excellent stay, highly recommended.
