The managers were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were reasonably priced and very spacious and comfortable. The rooms were well insulated from the street noise also which is a huge bonus in stays on main roads. The breakfasts were good value as well when compared to some of the other chains that cost $20+ for breakfast. Worked out about... More

Hi Tony, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of our property on Trip Advisor. We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and our rooms.

The room was spacious and clean. There was a microwave but no utensils plates etc. We wanted a sharp knife to cut some fruit and had to go to reception to get it. They said whatever we wanted we could have but had to ask for it ( they removed these things from the rooms because they kept being stolen).... More

Hi David, thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property on Trip Advisor. Disappointed to hear you didn't enjoy your stay with us, as much as other guests have. Unfortunately, noise can travel into the rooms if all the windows are left open. We don't keep extra supplies (plates etc.) in the rooms, as it... More

We booked a two bedroom room at the last minute, which considering there were six of us and we were on a tight budget was a massive relief in itself. When we arrived, we were blown away by the quality of the room, especially for the extremely reasonable price! The beds were comfy, it was impeccably clean and very spacious.... More

My family and I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, it was a very quick trip to Toowoomba. Everything was clean and tidy including a wonderfully well appointed kitchen and very comfortable beds. Close to restaurants and a quick drive to the town centre. We will be staying here again on our next Toowoomba trip. The motel is on one... More

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.
