Hotel is old. We had to find a person inside the bar to check-in. Smell of smoke was strong upon coming inside. Some part of carpet is torn. No security, some guest were shouting until 1AM, drinking and smoking outside their front door.

We stayed here for one night to see the Festival and found their King Room had great comfy bed and was fairly quiet. Not sure if all the rooms have been partially refurbished like this one but it wasn't bad with new quilts, curtains etc. The bathroom was clean but in need of renovation. But it doesn't pretend to be... More

We had a wonderful dinner tonight. My wife had a lamb shank and I had a Guiness Pie. Both were very tasty. The Guiness was very well poured. Service was first class and the restaurant has been refurbished to a high standard. Relaxing, comfortable, well priced and excellent cuisine.

Where to start. noisy exhaust fan in bathroom and out of date milk. The air conditioner was noisy and the remote didn't work. The bathroom was definitely not refurnished if it was wasn't finished. The lamb shanks were microwaved and cold. Hard to get service sometimes. The noise of guests coming back to their rooms when pub closed at 3am... More

Ok, so this is your typical motel/hotel where the door opens up into the car park. However the room was clean, the shower was great (hot and flowing). The bed was comfortable. If you want romantic or something special then spend more money. However if you want budget accommodation, clean rooms and comfortable bed this place is fine. Your are... More

We liked the location in walking distance to CBD but the restaurant has lost a lot of its previous appeal and service. Cleanliness adequate, service average. There are better value locations in Toowoomba. They appear to be doing work and there was a lot of construction materials on site. Perhaps we just arrived at the wrong time.
