Recently spent 4 nights at this hotel for work. Staff are very friendly, accommodation is spotless, free internet is excellent. Inroom dining was average, however it is in a pretty central location so there are other dining options close by. I am a light sleeper so woke every time someones car started outside the room, but this is something that... More

Great service and rooms. Breakfast was included and delivered, restaurant closed, to the room. Presentation and portion good. Has a nice area at rear of room, outside and we had our breakfast there. Only downside was the shower screen and around the taps/drain needed a scrub. Would stay again.

Found the beds quite comfortable. Breakfast in room was to menu and good size portions. Restaurant is extremely popular and we were unable to get a reservation. If we had known that we would have reserved when I booked the room. Would definateley stay here again.

I chose this hotel due to its proximity to our Toowoomba Branch. It had good reviews so I chose it, albeit my experience at other Best & Western Hotels, e.g. near Brisbane Airport and in Ipswich were less favourable experiences. The accommodation and service was very good. Stay only spoilt by a noisy neighbour. Otherwise happy and will return.

Hi Maike T Thank you for making the time to write a response. Very happy that we could offer you a positive experience. We do apologise for your noisy neighbour unfortunately from time to time we do get inconsiderate people that seem to have no thought for fellow guests More

Stayed at the Best Western Plus Ambassador on Ruthven again last night. The first time we stayed there, it was such a pleasant surprise when we opened the door. These motels have been TOTALLY refurbished. Large enough room with quiet air conditioning. No need to take your own pillow and there's a well stocked mini bar. The bathroom is big... More

Hi Nyree Thank you for going to the effort to write such a lovely response. It has been a lot of hard work from our wonderful staff to get the restaurant and motel to the standard we have achieved. To get such positive feedback makes it all worth while. Regards More

We stayed here for one night and found the room was really nice and clean. Would stay here again. The only thing I would suggest is that they have a designated smoking area near the front entrance away from the outside of the rooms as smell of cigarette smoke kept wafting in under the door.

So pleased we booked into the Ambassador! We had a lovely room by the pool with a quaint patio area. The pool area was well secluded, and bordered by well manicured hedges, with plenty of comfortable chairs to choose from. It was a lovely space to relax, unwind and enjoy a peaceful read by the pool. The rooms were spacious,... More

This is a lovely spot and the staff provide great service. Access is easy, the rooms are well appointed and the bath/ spa is worth a visit in its own right! Toowoomba is a lovely, welcoming town and this hotel typifies the happy atmosphere.
