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

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.

Have stayed here three times in the last few months and is very good value for money. Not flash but the units are spacious and clean and are all you would want and the management are friendly and extremely helpful. Free internet a great bonus and undercover parking. We will definitely stay there again.
