Where to start. noisy exhaust fan in bathroom and out of date milk. The air conditioner was noisy and the remote didn't work. The bathroom was definitely not refurnished if it was wasn't finished. The lamb shanks were microwaved and cold. Hard to get service sometimes. The noise of guests coming back to their rooms when pub closed at 3am... More

Ok, so this is your typical motel/hotel where the door opens up into the car park. However the room was clean, the shower was great (hot and flowing). The bed was comfortable. If you want romantic or something special then spend more money. However if you want budget accommodation, clean rooms and comfortable bed this place is fine. Your are... More

We liked the location in walking distance to CBD but the restaurant has lost a lot of its previous appeal and service. Cleanliness adequate, service average. There are better value locations in Toowoomba. They appear to be doing work and there was a lot of construction materials on site. Perhaps we just arrived at the wrong time.

A little less expensive than most. Central to town, Don't do it! End of the day a few bucks extra will get you one heck of a better place to sleep. Carpets are filthy. Changed rooms 3 times. Second key not available for twin room. If the Shamrock insists via website that I complete 282 charectors so be it. This... More

We stayed here during the Carnival of Flowers, a gorgeous time to be in Toowoomba. The location of this hotel is perfect, a 15 minute walk to Queens Park, the main venue area of the Carnival, and 30 second walk to where the parade was held. But being attached to the hotel meant it was SO noisy - terribly bad... More

This Hotel has the best staff ever. It has new management and they have really cleaned it up. The cleaners are so friendly and nothing is a problem. The whole vibe of the place is friendly and safe. Food was fantastic and even though a lot of the bar staff are new they made sure everyone was looked after. Great... More
