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 motel has the dubious honour of being the worst place I have ever stayed in years. After a bumble with another hotel I ended up here late at night looking for a room. I booked the room without seeing it, wrong thing to do. When I opened the door the stench hit me in the face. The carpet was stained from one end of the room to the other with various substances. It took me a little to figure out the smell that dominated above the others. It seems someone spilled milk in front of the fridge, it's still there, dried and soured. Don't clean the carpet, just blot it up and rent the room again. The room had three beds in it, I turned down the large bed and the pillows smelled bad. I wasn't going to lay in that thing. I was exhausted, so I went and sat on the day bed and dozed sitting up. I kept waiting for bugs to bite me and slept about ten minutes that night. The bathroom and shower were equally gross. The shower curtain looked dirty. I folded it over the stall and used the shower on low, I didn't want to water to splash out and accidentally clean something. The only redeeming factor is there were enough towels that I could line the bathroom floor and not have to step in the filth barefooted. The room wasn't cheap either, $175. I should have slept in my truck, it would have been a lot nicer without the unpleasant odours. The owners or managers of this property just don't care and it shows.

We stayed overnight at this motel. It was clean, comfortable bed, toiletries were provided and the reception staff most helpful. They even organised our membership at the Gosford RSL where had dinner that night. The RSL is a five minute walk away too.

On arrival I was greeted by a young man, Connor who went above and beyond. The Ashwood Motel is associated with the Gosford RSL across the road and Connor stated that if I have Veterans Card I'm entitled a discounted room rate of 15% which he applied straight away, and then I was offered a complimentary membership to the club which would give me 10% food and beverages The rooms were great and I liked having a supply of crockery and cutlery, the bed was super comfy. The only small complaint I had was the guest laundry, which required tokens from the reception and they had no detergent available either. Also if you are coming from the East it's bit of a nightmare trying to get into the driveway.

We needed an overnight stay and picked this motel as it was not far off the motorway. It was clean and comfortable with a microwave, crockery and cutlery. It has a guest laundry which I made use of - reasonably priced. Handy to takeaways (walking distance). Lovely pool and games room. I would certainly stay again.

The room we had is clean and tidy. I would call it basic accommodation. The room has tea & coffee making facilities with a toaster and microwave. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Being owned by the local RSL & getting a complementary membership was a bonus for eating out!

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, although the bed sheets were showing their age. The small fridge had separate fridge and freezer sections (each with its own door). Although located on the highway our unit was quiet. Wifi was very limited, continuously dropping out and very slow. When arriving there was manual paperwork to be completed which seemed to take forever.

We had a king room for one night. We really enjoyed our stay at the Ashwood - clean, quiet, updated, good size room and really great value for money. I’m giving it five stars because I think it’s an exceptional budget stay. Great location and very convenient. Would stay again. Thank you!

This motel is clean...and that's about it. After a trip to Qld and back staying in numerous motels, this one definitely asks too much for what it is. Right on the 6-lane highway, it is easy to find but hard to sleep. The 'deluxe' room is a shoebox. The RSL across the road owns it, but should stick to running the club not the hotel. Lots of tradies were staying so early truck starts didn't help. Best avoid this one if you have another option.

I guess the main attraction for me was the fact that is just opposite the Gosford RSL where I had a function. However, the room and amenities were a pleasant surprise for the price. It was Saturday night and the town was full, so I was more than happy with the rate. The rooms were modern and comfortable. I had a quick look around next morning and the amenities were also very good - a place I could spend some time.
