This motel is a short drive from the CBD, easy to locate and well maintained. It is set back from the main road so is in a quiet location. Car parking not overly generous for todays larger vehicles. Room was spacious and quiet, the window coverings did let quite a bit of light in from the outside night lights until... More

By far the best hotel I've stayed in in toowoomba. The rooms are a good size and completely modern. The bathroom is fully renovated complete with spa bath. The room service menu is very extensive and the meals are delicious. Staff are very friendly. Will definitely stay again on my next trip.

Friendly staff, comfy room, modern, tea and coffee making difficult, no bench room for it, but overall really nice, close to town, one of the best restaurants in town there, and a pub just across the road for a cheap counter meal or drinks.

Nice friendly staff, easy check-in and quiet well appointed rooms which were spotless! Surprisingly good restaurant in a suburban motor inn. Meal was exceptional (serving lobster no less), great selection of wines and a short walk from our room. We'll definitely stay here again!

Stayed here on a very cold night in Toowoomba in July. Hotel room was suitable, shower door leaked a little. Reception was civil but gave no extra information, almost like they assumed I had stayed before (I hadn't) and knew everything, don't even think he told me my room number! But still a clean and tidy place to stay.

We don't stay in motels every week but this would have to be the best room we've ever stayed in and we are in our early 50's. Quiet position, room was clean & modern, bed was fantastic, no squashy car park. The only downside was the person at reception lacked PR Skills. Would certainly stay again.

My first impressions always count for a lot when I book and stay at a motel and this one didn't let me down. It was conveniently located to the centre of town compared to a lot of others. The motel and grounds are well maintained and inviting. The reception was friendly and helpful even offering advice on things to do... More

Great and close to the city. A few extra touches like cutlery and plates for our own breakfast would have been good to make our stay even better. The restaurant was excellent with great service and lovely food.

Great location and the service and rooms were excellent. If you're staying in Toowoomba I recommend that you stay here. Breakfast on the morning of departure was excellent with big servings and arrived promptly at the room. The added ability to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points is a bonus.
