We stayed here for 3 nights, as a couple, during a visit to Toowoomba. Very clean, spacious and comfortable rooms, with good facilities. The reverse-cycle airconditioning was appreciated, as was the free wi-fi. The beds were comfortable enough, the pillows were average. I must highlight the room service food. The cooked breakfasts were delightful, and the one room-service dinner meal... More

We stayed at the Highlander one one night with our children 10 and 8. The rooms were spotless, the beds were comfortable and plenty of hot water. I am sure if it was summer the pool would have been very welcomed. It was the middle of winter and the room very warm and cosy. We will stay again.

We stayed for one night in August. The room was lovely and spacious and extremely clean but did not have that 'disinfected' smell about it. The bed was very comfortable as we're the pillows (I can be a bit of a pillow snob...). Reception was extremely friendly and helpful. Close to shopping centre (walking distance) Although the motel is situated... More

We booked 2 rooms side by side just for a quick stop over early in the week. The spa suite had all the necessary amenities and was very clean. A massive TV and heated room made for a perfect night in. We would definately stay again and would recommend.

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
