Stay here. Pet friendly and friendly and welcoming staff. Although the room decor is a little bit dated. The beds are clean and comfy and heating warm. Well priced too. We were in a pet friendly room and not even a hint of any pet smells. Well done

We did stay for 1 night with our pets as a one off. We did not feel welcome all we got was how people do the wrong thing. We were grateful for the overnight accomodation but our stay was not pleasant. The next day we went to the tourist information centre and found a whole house pet friendly the owner... More

Stayed just the one night but will be back again. Typical standard motel with large rooms. Very clean and comfortable. You can order breakfast delivered to your room as long as the order is in by 8:30pm. Plenty of soap, shampoo and conditioner available. Kitchenette has microwave and small fridge. Best priced motel in Toowoomba.

As always a perfect trip away and the friendly services are wonderful. I love the feeling of home when away, with the security of feeling safe, always perfect for this. Close to shops and takeaways if you like.Undercover parking always a bonus esp with storms around.

Close to city centre without being too close. The rooms were clean, comfortable and of a good size. Our room was on the ground floor to the rear of the property so we had little to no street noise. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delivered to our room, hot and appetising. We would stay there... More

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.

Easy access to this delightful motel, with friendly chatting with everyone, felt right at home from moment making the booking to leaving, nothing was problem. The room was perfect, very comfortable bed to fall into when getting back to the room from night out. Priced perfect and very easy access along main street through Toowoomba, worth revisit to this homely... More

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
