Very nice and clean older place. Initially I thought it was going to be pretty average but was pleasantly surprised. The bistro meal was great nicely cooked steak. Room was an acceptable size. Would look at staying there again .

It suited us perfectly! The room was huge and the bathroom very generous. It was warm and very comfortable. We loved the convenience of the restaurant downstairs and the meals were very satisfying and generous! Would definitely stay here again.!

We were put up at this hotel by my husband's company. It's been a little while since we were there, so I don't remember too much about it. I recall a problem with the air conditioning, but they were responsive and fixed it promptly. My husband left his toiletries kit there by accident and they were very helpful in making... More

Was a lovely venue for this purpose. Cocktail area was just lovely & nibbles were delicious.. Service was very, very good. Meal for reception was a little disappointing, but overall a great place for a wedding reception.

I stayed here over the Easter long weekend in 2014. Looking on Google Maps, it seemed that the Burke and Wills was in a reasonable location and was reasonably priced in comparison to the other hotels over the weekend. Despite being delayed significantly in my arrival, the staff members and the B&W were able to check me with a smile... More

We always stay here, you should book, we like a spa suite, so do a lot of other people. They offer a great indulgence package which comes with spa products, slippers & the biggest best cheese & wine platter. You get 2 free drinks vouchers for the bar downstairs, another added bonus. We haven't tried the food there but will... More

I stayed here for a work conference over night, the staff were very friendly, the rooms were small but for an overnighter, that was all I needed. It was neat and tidy, the bar downstairs was also nice and not too busy. It appeared a popular stop over for business people for a one nighter and it was reasonably priced.... More

When I arrived at this hotel, it appeared to have seen better days. But the room was a lovely surprise. Yes it was very small and the bathroom quite tiny, yet it was clean, pleasantly decorated and generally very comfortable. We didn't have a view but that is not why we booked this hotel. A view would have been a... More

I stayed at the Burke and Wills for four nights in February 2014. This is a well looked after hotel in the heart of Toowoomba. The service was excellent and my room was well appointed, clean and very comfortable. The restaurant dinners were very nice and reasonably priced as we're the breakfasts. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel.

Last minute, late night checkin, only one staff on, lift was broken, however staff member was helpful, informative and accommodating to our needs. Room was adequate, furniture and bedspread a little dated, but otherwise all was clean and functional. Met our needs.
