First time, stayed in Jan 2014. Most recently stayed for two nights in mid-Jan 2015. Nice big rooms. Awesomely effective AC (two vents, on opposite ends of the room) - especially useful in 35C+. Very comfortable beds. Well-equipped ensuite bathrooms, but a very strange, mazy layout - quirky! Also ate in the bistro twice. The first time at 20:55 just... More

This hotel is in the centre of town with free parking. We stayed here New Year's Eve so it was easy to walk to the entertainment but quite soundproof. We had a nice view of the fireworks. The hotel is lovel and clean. The sheets and towels were good quality. I slept soundly

I always enjoy staying here, the beds are comfortable, the staff friendly, the wi-fi is good. Look it is not the Hilton, but Neither is Toowoomba Sydney. If you are here for work, this is a good hotel, you even get a free drink at the bar downstairs.

We recently spent a night in Toowoomba on our way to Bribie Island, choosing to drive there rather than go via Brisbane. We didn't have a booking and the city was full of visitors for a flower and garden show but fortunately there was a room available at a moderate tariff which suited our needs perfectly. The welcome at reception... More

we dined at the restaurant today. $9.90 for a sunday rump with pepper sauce and vegetables. Steak cooked just to my liking with a good amount of vegetables a lovely meal. The kids meals are really good value, large meal with lots of choices for the extras like vegetables instead of chips if that's what you want, which we did.... More
