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.

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

Stayed in a king spa/apartment recently and it was fantastic. The room was massive, well appointed with a separate bedroom, 2 reverse cycle air conditioners and 2 big TV's. The kitchen was modern and had everything we needed. Full undercover carpark was much appreciated as it was raining and very cold outside. Michael gave us a great deal and there... More
