Great Motel to stay. We were there for four nights, free wifi and a nice continental breakfast that was free, the staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Hot showers and clean rooms, everything we wanted in the room.

A large family group stayed here for a family funeral. Initial welcome was missing. I think the lady running it may have been in the business a bit long?? It happens and is very hard to be friendly all the time. The rooms, recently refurbished by the looks of things were very well appointed and comfortable. The location was on... More

Room was roomy and beds comfortable. The room had free wifi and free continental breakfast. Close places to eat and undercover parking. There was a bit of noise from road but nothing overly disturbing.

Stayed two nights. Clean rooms that have recently been refurbished friendly and helpful staff. Also available free continental breakfast . The motel is close to most major venues and shops with only a short drive into toowoomba.

Rated a 3. Rooms are in need of a spruce up. Curtain were grotty, blown light bulbs, heater rattled like it was going to die. The dark brick is pretty cold and melancholy without the lights on the blink. Comfortable beds though and shower was hot and water plentiful. Had filtered tap water which was a bonus. Plenty of car... More

Thank you for your review. We always encourage guests to advise us of any faults and welcome a chat. You also had one of our budget rooms at a budget price - maybe with a friendly chat we could have fixed your bulbs immediately and also advised that we have completely renovated 14 rooms into modern kitchenettes. In a short... More

I stayed in a standard room (No. 4) which was clean and tidy with a comfortable bed and had all the usual requirements of a motel room. Friendly staff at check in. There was a odour that wafted through the room regularly, like a blocked drain smell, that was very strong and very unpleasant. Unfortunately, there were also guests who... More

Was clean and tidy. Quick check-in. The rooms are quiet despite the traffic noise. Air conditoning worked well. Good value for money. Only complaints were the renovations happening next door, I guess you have to renovate sometime but the impact drill at 7.30am was a bit much. Overall a good stay, glad to see the renovations taking place, maybe better... More

When researching a place to find, you wonder what a place is really like by what others say, but we found Allan Cunningham Motel to be clean, staff very friendly and helpful when we wanted to know where to go in Toowoomba. Free Wifi was a bonus, stayed 4 nights, our room was standard family room, new renovated with kitchenette,... More

Very bad service, stayed here for one night. They offer Foxtel but you can't watch it because it has a fuzzy picture, free wifi you have to ask for and when it bothers to work it's very very slow, my iPhone 4 was quicker with only 2 bars. When we entered the room there was no tv remote and 2... More

From the same room as previous review - sadly you do occasionally have guests who are very difficult. These certainly were. Our service was immediate, we had all their issues fixed within the first 15 minutes of their complaint. The mother was a lady who could hardly walk and upset one of our young staff when assisting them, so management... More
