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.

This was my third stay at this motel. Each time I have stayed here I have been given a warm, friendly welcome. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable with all amenities provided. I really like having the microwave to heat meals as I am usually tired after working and do not feel like going out for food. Having said that there are plenty of places close by to eat if needed.
The motel is easy to find and even though it is close to the highway I was not disturbed by the traffic noise.
I can recommend this motel and will definitely stay again.

The accommodation was very comfortable, with a large room. A lounge and 2 single chairs were provided (great!) and there was a luggage rack for the suitcase.
Rooms were available upstairs and at ground level, though some ground floor rooms would not be wheelchair/disabled accessible as there were (large) steps from the car parking.
In the publicity listing and on the motel web site, it states breakfast is available but this is no longer so, therefore we decided to shop locally and self-cater on this occasion.
Getting from the Motel to go west is not easy due to main road traffic at busy times of the day (e.g. mornings) and we ended up having to go east to a roundabout and double-back.

Stayed one night when travelling through Gosford and was glad we picked this one over the other motels situated on the main strip. Although the interior is simple and a little dated, it was clean and most of all quiet for our short stay. Check in and out was a breeze and although we only stayed ~12-18 hours (arriving in the afternoon and leaving in the morning) - the beds were comfortable, the air conditioner was great and the room and bathroom quite spacious. It was a short walk to / from local shops and although hilly - the views were worth it! Great job Gosford Palms and thanks for the pleasant stay!

We stayed here for one night on our way from Canberra to Port Macquarie. It's on a quiet side street that is a bit dark so I'm glad I was with my partner rather than alone as it was a bit creepy.
I wasn't 100% convinced of their commitment to being COVID safe so wiped down the room with a disinfectant wipe and it did pick up a little bit of dust so I'm glad I wiped it. The bathroom was nice and clean with a good shower.
I hate when hotels just have a sheet and then woolen blanket on the bed instead of a doona, so that was a negative for me.
We couldn't work out the airconditioner properly - it kept switching off.
It's a 10-15 minute walk to the Settlers Pub and the RSL so that's where you can get a feed. Otherwise there isn't much around except for petrol stations/take away shops.

We arrived to check in @ 2pm & had to wait as there was nobody at reception (we were greeted by a cleaner). Got our key card & headed up to the room where we found bags of rubbish at the front door. The cleaner was apologetic, but confirmed that the room was clean. In short it wasn’t. After we got settled we discovered the shower still had the previous guests half used soap & shampoo, the toilet had pubic hair under the seat, the floor was covered in talc. After some deliberation on wether we should stay or leave and cut our losses, we headed down to reception to let them know the situation an hour after checking in (3:20pm to be exact). To which we were asked why we didn’t complain earlier, questioned on how we paid, & asked if the receptionist could see for himself. We were asked again why we didn’t complain earlier repetitively even after explaining that we had 2 kids (a 4mo and the other almost 2 that needed to be changed, fed and settled after 4 hours in the car). After seeing the state of the room we were told he would clean it himself while we were out (host called @ 4:24 to say it was done). Once we returned to the property we found a clean bathroom, which was great. However upon further inspection, we found it was far from the only issue in regards to cleanliness. The microwave was scattered with crumbs, the fridge had sticky spills covered in fuzz, almost every surface was dusty, the back balcony was covered in leaf litter, rusty Bobby pins & old cigarette butts & there was bottle caps, wrappers, & other miscellaneous bits & bobs under the lounge. The second day we left our towels hanging on the rail as instructed (by a plaque on the wall; floor= please replace, hung up= please leave).We came back ready to jump in the shower (super temperamental, scolding to ice cold with a mm turn of the tap) to find no towels. So again had to head to reception to ask for replacements.
All in all it was one mishap after another, and based on our experience we will not be staying again.

The Gosford Palms is conveniently located within walking distance of the main area of Gosford, in particular the leagues club and sporting ground.
The motel is very standard and meets the basic needs. It looks a little run down, but for a night or two is an okay place to stay.
There is tea/coffee, micro wave, fridge, iron and tv (with basic Foxtel) in the room. There is a small swimming pool and ample free parking.

I had originally booked two nights but due to the motel being so unpleasant we only stayed one night. The room smelled horrible, not a clean odour at all. The bathroom sink screamed with a water hammer that I’m sure that offended the entire place every time it was turned on. The shower water pressure was so low it was like trying to shower under a hose in a third world country. The motel advised there was free Foxtel, but it did not work. When I called for assistance to get the TV working, the male manager arrived and filled the room with an alcohol smell so bad I don’t know how he was still standing upright. There was no breakfast being served due to COVID-19 which was disappointing.

Overall I would NOT recommend this motel, it is not fit for my dog to stay in. Very very disappointing.

Oh and to top it off, I was declined a refund even though I advised I would not be staying the second night first thing in the morning.

Jodi was a first class host with our recent working visit to Erina recently. Nothing was a problem if asked, rooms were clean with plenty of beds, blankets & towels. Parking was easy enough considering a trailer was part of our transport requirements & hotel is close enough to amenities with being in the town. As a relatively new owner of the business it seems as if they are going to give it a good shot with the attitude they have towards it.

good basic accommodation. bit dated and basic. however it was clean and we slept well. Checkin was quick without any niceties. Did not feel secure with a loose fitting back door. Had to walk up a side passage to access room that could have been cleaner. People sat here to play cards at the bottom of the stairs
Would not stay here again

Good stay, room was clean and tidy. Peaceful, quiet and safe. Shower head could be a bit bigger/wider instead of mini jet stream style water flow. Aircon was also faulty and system did not work please look into it. Over all stay comfortable :) :)
