We looked on TripAdvisor the day we needed to stay somewhere in Toowoomba and this motor inn was rated highly for very good reason. We needed to check in after reception hours - reception rang to check arrival time and arranged for keys to be left for us. Very good service! The room was clean and large, and on a... More

Considering its location on a busy road noise inside unit was almost non-existent. Very clean and a most comfortable bed. Only minor problem was plug in spa projected above tub surface and was easily knocked. We have stayed in several motels in Toowoomba over the years but this is the nicest.

Hotel pictures make rooms look dated but they are not (stayed in Room 8 for two nights). We were happily surprised with the large room which was very clean with good heating and 'kitchenette'. Off street parking and easy access up one flight of stairs. Quiet room despite being on a busy street. Price was very reasonable. We joined friends... More

My first impression was how large the room was. It was clean and comfy. The free use of the guest laundry was appreciated. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was concerned about the close proximity to two very busy roads but found traffic noise was not an issue.

We are regular visitors to Toowoomba and have stayed in many motels, but this is by far the best we have stayed in! We stayed upstairs in a room closest to James St (hi way), and surprisingly the noise level wasn't at all bad. The rooms were very spacious and extremely clean. Oh and the bed...heaven! Both rooms have reverse... More

My husband & I decided to stay here for our wedding anniversary in May & we were so happy with it. It truly was the best bed I've slept in away from my own. We've stayed at a few hotel/motels in Toowoomba & this is by far the best!

Can really only enter and exit property in one direction because of traffic islands in middle of road outside both entrances/exits.

Road noise nil from highway going past motel entrance , room clean and tidy and ready for guests. Still wondering why a establishment of this standing requires guests to go to reception and ask for plates and knives to have food on? shower cubicle floods out to centre drain away outlet of the bathroom.
