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

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Toowoomba, do not go past the Burke and Wills hotel. The hotel is in the centre of town and close to everything. The rooms are small, but well appointed and clean. The staff are all very welcoming and friendly, with nothing being too much trouble. The food in the bistro was... 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

$9.90 specials each day for lunch or dinner. Great sized plates of well cooked food in pleasant surroundings. We might even become regulars. When you come to Toowoomba, this is a great place to relax & they have Rogers beer on tap.

So the Burke and Wills is central to everything and a very nice hotel for a regional town. It would be in the top 2 places to stay. Staff are always friendly and professional and the rooms are always very clean. The birds in the car park trees crap on your car so the staff go around in the morning... More

One lift, a marble staircase, excellent service, free internet, cheap food, a free drink on arrival, free parking, quiet rooms, free newspapers, all the things you want in a hotel. Classic! It was a very pleasant stay, and I will be back. The only downside was the smoking area by the front door, if they shift it so you don't... More
