Booking a hotel for our family trip to Toowoomba's Easterfest wasn't easy due to the popularity of the festival. The Highlander Motor Inn is conveniently located, well priced and as it turned out, a very pleasant motel. Clean, well maintained and managed by lovely people this motel is a must stay at. Only negative, still using bed spreads and blankets... More

I do love this place and have stayed here many times. Always clean & tidy. Quiet in spite of James Street. Comfortable bed. Good water pressure. Red Edge food centre just up the road. Short cut through to Toowoomba Base Hospital. Welcoming & warm staff.
