For a stop over in Toowoomba we wanted good accommodation with a comfortable king size bed and with a restaurant attached. The Best Western Plus Ambassador Motor Inn seemed to fit the bill. The rooms were renovated in recent years and our king room with spa was pleasant enough but a little dark. There was only room for one small couch (for one person) to sit and read and inadequate lighting (no light over or near the couch/chair) meant meant that after dark the only place you could read was in bed. Instead, we took our books to the bar/restaurant to relax before dinner with a drink, which was pleasant. Free Wifi is always appreciated. Although breakfast was included in our tariff, it turned out that it was from a menu to the value of $20 which was a little strange, rather than the usual buffet. Overall, we felt that at $215 for B&B it was a little expensive for what we got.
