With only 1 night in Toowoomba we decided to do something a little different to the normal motel/hotel. Am not disappointed that we did. A beautifully restored grand old Queensland residence, with the refurbishment designed to enhance the period. Unfortunately it was raining so we did not make as much use of the verandah dining as we could have, but... More

Chose Vacy Hall largely based on TA reviews. It was a great choice ! Quiet, restful, just right after a day's travel. We had the Emperor Suite which was really neat. Loved the fact that we could just walk right out the back of our room and onto the verandah for a tea or coffee. (or breakfast) It is a... More

Staying at Vacy Hall was a good choice for us, the heritage listed building has been beautifully restored to its original glory and it made our stay seem like a walk back in time, our room was beautifully furnished in period funiture and soft furnishings. The rest of the house and its "nick nacks" really gave the house a great... More

We stayed at Vacy Hall during the Shakespear Festival. The whole place is very grand and kept in imaculate condition. Although it was 32 degrees in Toowoomba on the day we visited, the Hall was very cool and we didn't require airconditioning or fans. We spent the afternoon exploring the rooms of the house and the beautiful gardens. Before we... More

An authentic piece of Toowoomba history. Beautifully restored and maintained house and rooms with a real sense of history. An eye for detail meant that wherever the eye was cast, it was happy. Yummy breakfast - the slow cooked porridge was a real treat even in summer.

I stayed here on business in August 2013 and found it a pleasant, restful place to stay. The property is quite unique (at least for the places I've stayed in) in that the individual guest rooms are inside an old country manor. The furnishings in the rooms are all period, even down to the brass bed, which was surprisingly comfortable.... More

I specifically booked Vacy Hall for a romantic weekend away during Toowoomba's flower festival. It did live up to my expectations. I requested the room I wanted (info on their website) and got exactly that. It was a beautiful old Victorian style room with lace, 4 poster bed, fireplace and all the comforts you needed. It is obviously a very... More

My pet hate is when you order a $30 steak and your told after it arrives its another $3 for salad and $3 for sauce, Vacy hall is in the same league, as advertised $155 for room with fire place and not until we arrived at the room did we read an additional $25 a night for " firewood and... More

Dear Trapper97 Thank you for your feedback. The fireplace policy is displayed on our website as part of the introduction in the ‘Rooms’ section however in the light of your comments I will review the copy for specific rooms to best ensure that potential guests factor the fire usage charge into their considerations when making a selection.

My daughter and I spent 3 nights at Vacey hall and both wish we could have to stayed longer. We loved the old world charm and found the staff to be amazingly helpful and friendly. The rooms were presented beautifully and the verandah with its may cosy spots to enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine are something... More
