We had an enjoyable stay at Beccles on Margaret. The property itself is lovely, with beautiful grounds and the B&B room is comfortable and spacious enough to be able to relax and unwind. The ensuite was a good size for us and was well fitted out and included quality products. We opted for a continental breakfast on one day and cooked the other. Breakfasts were fine, not quite what we expected based on the guest comments and website, but presentation was always great and the dining room is a lovely room to be able to have breakfast in.
Beccles is really well located to the facilities in Toowoomba. While it is on a busy road, we've realised that Toowoomba is a very big city, so it was not a major issue given the convenience of it's proximity to attractions etc. Bob was a really helpful and attentive host and his local knowledge and tourism advice all added to the enjoyment of the stay.
