Vacy Hall was a delightful surprise! Housed in a heritage 'Queenslander', this charming guesthouse is one of the best accommodation options in Toowoomba, just 5 minutes walk from the center of town. The rooms are decorated in period style and are very comfortable. Breakfast is additional, but well worth the cost for the quality and choice of options. Ideal for... More

I’ve just returned to ‘real life’ in Brisbane after spending Saturday night at Vacy Hall with a girlfriend. Both our rooms were great – full of atmosphere and lovely old-style furnishings. My room with fireplace was a great treat on a very cool night although the house was very warm with the central heating. A full breakfast on the verandah... More

Sipping a glass of red in front of a blazing log fire within a beautifully appointed, absolutely charming Guesthouse. Should you ask for more? If you do want for more; a delicious hot breakfast served on the verandah each morning and sensational restaurants within walking distance make for a memorable stay at Vacy Hall.

What a beautiful guest house and so close to the middle of town. It sits opposite a fantastic restaurant called "Gips" and the price was on par with the going rate of most nearby motels. Booked! We arrived a little later than most people and we had advised management of this. They left an envelope taped to their office door... More

Dear "AussieExplorer", Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your visit to Vacy Hall this week. I am glad you found Vacy Hall very pretty, beautiful and super convenient. However many of your other comments are unfair because they are based on a number of inaccurate assumptions that would not have occurred if you had arrived during office... More

The rooms are huge.I stayed in room 1, the Kings Suite, and it is beautifully appointed. The bed is very comfortable and the location of the hotel is central to... More

A very nice...guest house (not a hotel). The breakfast was great, fresh simple and delicious. The rooms (ours was very small) but none the less charming and romantic We took advantage of the fireplace which added great atmosphere......a small criticism, our room we had did not have comfortable chairs which negated the opportunity to sit and enjoy the fire with...

We loved our large ensuite room and authentic furniture the room was very cozy and well heated but lighting the fire gave... More

Over the last 20 or more years, we have had many stays here, some with a previous owner. We used to always stay in what was then called "the Library", a former library in the house as it was less expensive than the huge en suite rooms but had an open fire and was spacious enough. However, in recent times,... More

As soon as you drive into Vacy Hall you are greeted by a gorgeous late 1800's homestead perfectly suited to the gardens and furnishings on the verandah. Graham was lovely and our room was cute and comfortable even with our portacot. We didn't light our fire as we were only staying one night and it cost $25 but if staying... More

Had another fantastic stay with excellent service in such a well kept and maintained piece of history. The room was so well presented and the amenities were perfect. I highly recommend this wonderful establishment to all to take a break from the hustle and bustle often found in larger establishments. Cannot wait for our next stay.
