We chose to stay at the Highlander as my husband was having some surgery done, and we were from out of town. Everything was wonderful. The service desk was excellent, helping me with all my driving and road directions. The room was immaculate and had everything you would expect. No road noise at all. Meals were hot and very enjoyable... More

We are seasoned travellers going on a couple of overseas trips a year and several regional trips. We stay in 2-4 star hotels. We have been using trip advisor for all of our trips since 2008. I have never been let down by trip advisor till now. From reading the reviews it was probably just not our night. I hate... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are of course disappointed to read of your experience. We have the property regularly fumigated (in fact it was last done on the 4th of November) and have taken up the matters you have raised with the Pest Controller. We appreciate that bed comfort is very subjective. Our premium... More

We stayed in a two bedroom self contained apartment (No. 37) with a very comfortable king bed and a TV in the main bedroom. The apartment had everything that we needed for a self sufficient stay. The apartment is very large with everything on the one level. A wide carport in front of the apartment provided protection for the car... More

Stayed in this hotel during the weekend as my daughter was playing a tennis tournament. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment (room 27). The place was clean and tidy and sufficient for what we were after. As we had 6 staying in the room, it would have been great to have 2 bathrooms. Check in and check out was... More

This has a good central location and is conveniently placed for a short drive to the shops. It is a clean hotel with extras like a kitchenette area which is handy. I have stayed there been before. There is an outdoor pool which is good to cool off in summer.

We stayed for one night, and were made very welcome, the design of the Highlander is excellent for privacy and noise reduction. The weather was exceptionally hot, and the air conditioning was very welcome. The pool is also very well designed, solar heated and shaded at one end with seats and tables around it. Wonderful staff added a real friendliness... More

Hello Stay S. We appreciate the time you took to write such a positive Review of our property - the Highlander Motor Inn. As you rightly point out, the construction and lay out of the motel is such that, whilst at the intersection of two fairly bust roads, noise is not an issue from any of the rooms. We look... More

Stayed for three nights in a 2-bed apartment. Fantastic. Quiet, clean and comfortable. Manager Dianne was amazing. Professional, efficient and very caring and pro-active. Ensured that the room was suitable for asthmatics. Most places just don't care, but this one does. Well done, and the room was way back from both busy roads, so it was very quiet. Well done....

I have stayed at several motels in Toowoomba, the Highlander was far ahead of the others, it had everything from a very practical and pleasant room to amazing staff. It was a very hot day and the air conditioning and their solar heated pool was perfect. The staff went well beyond the usual level of service and the quality combined... More

I stayed for two nights while doing some training at the Toowoomba Base Hospital and the location is perfect. They even have a secret gate that gives direct access to the TBH grounds and on my last day let me keep my car parked in the motel till I was finished which was great.
