Stayed at the Highlander for a work conference. Cannot recommend this place enough. The room was clean neat tidy and serviced. Check in was pain free and nothing was too much trouble, staff were so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was amazing. I really enjoyed my experience and would definitely stay again.

Booked at the Highlander for an overnight business stay and was very impressed with the friendly and helpful staff/ managers. Beds are very comfortable and even though on a main road very quiet. Would highly recommend the highlander for a comfortable stay.

We just spent time in Toowoomba and stayed at the Highlander Motor Inn in one of their one bedroom apartments. When we walked in we were so impressed with the layout, cleanliness and facilities. There was no noise from neighbours coming through walls even though the motel was full. An excellent breakfast - on time. The staff on booking in... More

Stayed here on the way to Brisbane. $139 for a queen bed with a spa. Spotlessly clean, great service and a really comfy bed. Aircon works fine. Ate out but they have room service. Decore a bit old but that is a small quibble. A great quick pit stop!

Later they confirmed they had worked a way round this to assist us. Great service. Room was good with the bed located as soon as... More
