Blue Violet is an excellent home base for exploring Toowoomba. Quiet, clean and spacious it has all the amenities that make travel enjoyable. My room had a microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle so I could have more choices than just eating at restaurants. Hair dryer and iron ensured I looked my best. The room is spacious with a comfortable bed,... More

Would not advise people to stay here. Rooms are dirty. Car park is very small . People that run it are rude and the care factor is zero! Can't believe I wasted money on a room here! Never again! Be warned grammar parents find somewhere else to stay!!

We booked via another booking agency. Forget the photos in the ad. - it is a smaller, older motel but a great place to stay. "The Boss" noted the quality bed linen, the beds were all comfortable (singles and double). The motel is situated on Margaret Street which took us a long time to find as our Tom Tom was... More

Made our booking very late at night and while we were concerned that there would be nobody awake to let us in we were lucky to find a very friendly hotel manager who jovially welcomed us to the hotel. While our stay was short we found our room to be very comfortable with a great bed and lovely hot shower.... More

Breakfast was beautiful. Stayed at a 4.5 star island resort a few days earlier & would stay rather stay here any day!! Will... More

The owners and their family ensured that a booking problem was solved quickly. The three bed configuration was not available despite being told it was by another booking agency. A fold up bed was added to the room and complimentary breakfasts were supplied for the inconvenience. The Rooms were comfortable for the price and convenient to our destination.

Blue Violet Motor Inn is located in a lovely tree lined street in Toowoomba, not far from the top of the range, Picnic Point, Queens Park, Cobb&Co Museum and the city centre. The popular Weis Restaurant is close by. It is a clean, comfortable smallish 3-star motel, basically what you see on their website is what you get. It is... More

Stranded at Toowoomba during the Tsnami and floods of January 10th and Peter the owner could not have been more helpful, welcoming or hospitable. The rooms were very clean and well provided for and the food was excellent. We had an extended stay due to the flood conditions but notwithstanding that, we enjoyed our stay. Thought Peter was a great... More
