We booked through a booking site and this place was advertised as having spacious family rooms and a pool. When we got there the "Family room" was a normal double with two double beds squashed into a small space and a shower only bathroom last renovated about forty years ago. The pool was literally green and "closed for winter" (we... More

The rooms here were average and parking was a bit of a problem. Access to the road was hampered by a huge tree which you could not see past. No restaurant or bar but breakfast was available. Close to town.

The place is pretty reasonably priced compared to other motels ive stayed in Toowoomba. To be honest its probably one of the better motels ive stayed at for its price. Its about 1.7km walk away from the city centre. Bernys fish and chips, the spar, bakery, kebabs and Chinese is only a 200m walk. Which I found handy. Bernys fish... More

The pool was closed for cleaning which was a huge disappointment for the kids. The rooms were small and dated, the kids room was like a prison cell. The bathroom must have been last renovated in the 70's and was very grimy. Kept awake all night by the TV blaring from next door and constant coughing.

This Golden Chain motel is located only a few minute drive, to the main shopping centre and also to a large variety of restaurants and other attractions. Although located along a main road, the motel was very quiet and we did have a good sleep. Adele and Ben are very welcoming, friendly and keen to have a chat when not... More

We spent one night here. This motel is set in attractive and treed grounds. Our room was comfortable and very clean. The shower was very good. Although our room was just one back from the busy highway the noise from passing traffic was not too bad. The hosts were friendly and helpful. It was good value for money and we... More

I have stayed here several times over the last few months. Rooms are very clean and comfy. But what sets this motel apart are Ben and Adele who run it. They are awesome and nothing is too much trouble for them. Would not stay any where else in Toowoomba.

Stayed one night & found the room to be clean, comfy & reasonably priced. Being on the main road, I found a lot of traffic noise & the workers staying there at the same time arose early and were very loudly talking outside our room from 6.30am. Not the motels fault, just guests without manners!! Probably wouldn't choose this motel... More

Stayed here one Saturday night. Staff very friendly and cheerful. Requested a room at the back so no traffic noise. Rooms large, clean, quiet and comfortable. Would stay again and recommend to others. The only hassle is getting to the hotel if approaching from the west. Had to go into the shopping centre, make a "U"turn to get across the... More
