We stayed here for one night en-route to Brisbane. Checkin/checkout was friendly and efficient. I had forgotten to ask for a room on the ground floor when I booked, but my request was accommodated when we arrived which was much appreciated. We were in room 1 which faced on to an incredibly busy and noisy road, however the hotel has... More

Large,clean,well laid out rooms. Close enough to city centre that I walked and had a good look around. Hosts were very pleasant and accommodating. Even though this motel is on a very busy highway there was no road noise. Would recommend

We stayed two nights in unit 1 which has a shower over the spa. While we managed the climb up and over the step into the spa for a shower I would think it would be a bit awkward for older guests. The unit is quite spacious, very clean with a comfy bed and good kitchenette facilities. The motel is... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor about our property, and the feedback. When guests book direct with us we always try to match our room types with the guests needs, especially with elderly visitors and spa rooms, if we think there will be an issue, we advise against the spa option, however we...

As far as motor inns go, this is as good as they get. We were able to easily get an early check in, the rooms were large and clean, the staff all friendly and the rates reasonable. 15 min walk to city centre. Can recommend.

Highlander motor inn is a great choice. Cannot complain about anything! Three adults stayed one night, we were upgraded to a two bedroom suite. Location: on a main hwy, but the windows are double glazed, so slept soundly. Cleanliness: could not fault, room was fresh and clean. Staff: very friendly, happy. Room: linen and towels were top quality. Shower pressure... More

We had a one bedroom self contained apartment. The accommodation was very clean and modern and quiet. Very comfortable bed and comfy pillows. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating with our early arrival. Very close to the CBD . Will definitely stay here again when next in Toowoomba. Highly recommend this place. Secure off street parking
