Friendliest staff around especially Lynda at front desk who was so informative to us New Zealanders who had never been to Toowoomba. Well organised establishment. Also a top sponser to the local event TG Smith's boxing event at Rumours International between Paul Gallon and Herminator. Boxers stayed here and families. I loved the spa rooms they were spacious.

My partner and I recently attended a wedding in Toowoomba and stayed overnight at the Burke and Wills Hotel. We were suitably impressed with the friendly service of the staff to the provided amenities in the room. Being centrally located meant easy access to shops, cafes and other services/places to visit. Would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to... More

We had a family dinner recently and the meals were amazing and very reasonably priced. Most of us had steaks and they were cooked perfectly according to our orders and we had nothing to complain about at all. Staff were great and couldnt of been more pleasant. Thank you and we will be back.

Air con didn't work that well so room was a bit stuffy. Restaurant served basic pub food and had a good range of drinks. Breakfast was good and there was plenty... More

Hotel accommodation was of a good standard, good access to food and drinks within the hotel. Breakfast was simple yet good value for money. Plenty of parking beside the hotel and the location was excellent in the centre of town. Easy access in and out of Toowoomba. Would have liked to stay longer than just overnight.

Burke and Wills Hotel is a lovely hotel and a great place to stay during a short trip to Toowoomba. The staff were friendly, the room service was excellent and the rooms were nice but a little dated. My partner and I would gladly stay here again!

The Hotel was booked for one on my workers on a training course. This hotel was more than adequate and above all friendly staff, clean rooms and easy to work with. The booking was an easy process as well and all conducted over the phone. I will book further rooms at this hotel.

Whenever we stay in Toowoomba we stay at the Burke and Will. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, the beds are very comfortable and the staff are always friendly and helpful. The restaurant has excellent, well priced meals again with friendly service. Yes it is old but that is part of the charm - always very clean and presentable.
