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.

We booked 3 nights at the Gosford Palms Motor Inn, glad we chose here to stay! It is walking distance to transport, shops and pubs. The room was very clean, bed & pillows comfortable, room was serviced daily. Will definitely stay here next year if we attend the same event.

If you enjoy 1970s motels you may like this place. Problems I had in a 2-night stay: There was an unwrapped half-eaten chocolate chunk on my pillow when I arrived. I had to ask 3 staff before my ground floor bathroom window was secured; needs a key, staff don't know where to find one. Bed was made but tea, milk etc. were not replenished. Asked for ice, there was none. They did volunteer to put an ice tray in the office fridge, so there was a bit available for me to pick up several hours later.

Room was very clean and tidy. Rooms are outdated but that reflects the price. Very pleasant check in with Michelle. Comfortable stay, close to the tavern for dinner or service stations for convenience. Would recommend and would stay again.

I booked this Motor Inn solely on its looks. I love the retro vibe and wasn’t disappointed. Michelle at the front desk made it even a better experience, what a delightful Human. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. I heard there was to be some Reno’s to this beauty of an Inn, hope they keeps its retro charm, it’s the biggest draw card.

Stayed here during a last minute business trip. Rooms are simply furnished but very clean and comfortable, all you'd need for a night or two. The microwave oven in the room was a nice touch although it wasn't needed this trip. Rear door access, heating and cooling were good, and the bed was clean and comfortable. Quiet too, despite being only a little back from the main road. Check in was friendly and easy. The car park could be a little tight if you have a large 4WD, but it just means taking a little extra care, nothing that would prevent anyone with a large car parking there. Would definitely stay again.

Great service. Comfy bed & good facilities in the room. I would definitely stay again. Reception staff were very accomodating. I stayed sole in order to recover from an operation. It was peaceful. Loved the back door for fresh breeze

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 :) :)

We stayed overnight to attend a friend's party. The room was neat and pleasantly presented with plenty of toiletry supplies. The aircon was quiet, as was the fridge. We would stay again if needed. The only issue was the shower floor- once the floor was wet, it was slippery which is a hazard. The bathroom seemed to set up as an accessible room. Maybe a non slip mat could be provided as a safety measure.

Beds need replacing, did not look like the photos..very old hotel..some sort of air freshener used to cover up smell of ageing carpet .. bathroom we needed to keep the window open.. walls are paper thin. Needless to say we got up early and we’re out of there.
