If our clean, quiet, we'll behaved dog is no longer welcome, then neither are we. Australia has finally joined Countries all over the world in welcoming older people who travel with their beloved little dogs, and everywhere we go, w find people with motels to welcome us. But not this one, anymore. Dog lovers, stay away! Spend your money with... More

First impression was it was a relic from the 50's - fibro walls and flowery bedspreads. But it lacked nothing - small flat screen tv in both rooms, effective kitchenette and free wifi. Wouldn't hurry back but it met our needs.

The room was perfect, very comfortable bed to fall into when getting back to the room from night out.

As we were coming up for the Toowoomba Show and we have rescue dogs we booked this motel because it was advertised as Pet Friendly. We also called prior to coming to check. We arrived in the pouring rain and at that stage I only had my old cattle dog with me. She is incredibly well behaved, was on the... More

Called them and was advised they are longer pet friendly, too much of a hassle they said and there were Council issues what ever that means? I was also informed there is no longer anywhere in Toowoomba that is pet friendly, which is very much a shame if that is true. Obviously I had to book else where and not... More

The service and friendly attitude made this a great place to stay with my dog. The room was very clean and Jan makes the best fruit salad I have ever eaten ! Dog friendly accommodation is rare and people being so helpful is rare as well. We were at a show in the heat and a friend & her dog... More

We stayed here with 2 adults, 1 child and 2 small dogs. Rooms were clean and great value for money. Owners were very helpful and accommodating. There was free wireless internet an the pool was clean and inviting and away from prying eyes. A convenient place to stay in Toowoomba.

Stayed overnight here to visit the Carnival of flowers. A basic room, but with unexpected extras such as hand soap, body lotion, shaving cream, shampoo, conditioner and body wash all on tap. Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds and a very friendly, helpful staff. Nothing flash, but great value for money.
