“Beautiful and relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed November 15, 2010

I recently stayed at Vacy Hall for a weekend away. I was blown away by the terrific atmosphere, the great service and furnishings of this lovely heritage listed property.

Toowoomba doesn't really have great hotels to stay at, and most are motel style without any character. Vacy Hall was so lovely, old world and felt homely.

I will definitely be coming back here again soon with my partner.

Absolutely superb, a unique experience. We stayed in the Gilbert Cory Suite which is just fantastic - King size four poster, original rolltop cast iron bath, swing chair on verandah, beautiful fireplace. The service is brilliant, we thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts on both mornings served to our private table on our verandah. The porridge is amazing!!! Graham is attentive and made sure we knew everything about our room etc. We had arrived expecting to have to pay for breakfast extra, but that was included as well. Angelo's Italian was a great recommendation from graham.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my family and now husband on the weekend of our wedding. It was a fantastic place to stay! The characteristic and charm of the guest house is hard to beat. It set the scene for what was a fabulous weekend. Graeme (the host) did a fantastic job to accommodate us and at times our unique requests, such as gaffa tape for the ribbon to attach to the cars. The feel of Vacy house was so lovely, old world charm and beautiful gardens. Can't thank you enough Graeme for a fantastic weekend, thank you for looking after us.

Book for a couple of days at Vacy Hall and experience Toowoomba and the Downs. A must di is Gips Restaurant for the ultimate dining experience - great service by a very skilled young crew who just spoil you. Breakfast at Vacy Hall with a compulsory porridge to start. Excellent

Beautiful old heritage home with all the modern expectations. My boyfriend and I arrived at Vacy Hall on a trip to Toowoomba for a job interview. As soon as we arrived our stress of the drive and the day to come melted away. It was an escape back to the prosperous beginnings of Australia. Our room was lovely: a comfy queen bed with luxourious duvee and pillows, bed canopy, antique wooden furniture, fireplace, rain-head shower...
It was the little things that made the stay so comfortable; big fluffy towels, bath robes waiting in the beautiful tall-boy, tea and bikkies.
We had an amazing breakfast served to us on the varrandah with the morning sun shining on the fine silver. The service was OUTSTANDING at Vacy Hall; Graham was warm and helpful and Lizzie was a meticulous housekeeper who makes the best porridge I've ever had.
This place is more than a hotel or a bed and breakfast...I would recommend it as a destination.

My husband and I have just enjoyed the most wonderful time at Vacy Hall. Let me see first our appreciation must go to the team who had made out time at Vacy Hall memorable. We stayed in a queen room for a couple of days then decided to go back and stay in a large suite. Graham thank you for your time answering all of our questions and being a most gracious host. Liz, we thankyou for the tastiest porridge we have ever tasted and for your happy personality we give you an A+. Leanne, our thanks to you for answering the many questions we put to you. We loved your trendy galoshes and for a personality even the morbid couldn't ignore.

Now we should mention the memories Vacy Hall has now entrusted to us. The most beautiful home which houses some of the most elegant beds I have ever seen. The fire places with flames that get you in and set the scene for the night ahead. The comfy chairs to a warm welcoming clawfoot bath filled with warm sudsy water. The wide hall ways filled with memorbillia of a bygone era. Oh if only...... oops the kettle has just boiled I will now sit and enjoy the memories I have of Vacy Hall. By the way we have booked again for our wedding anniversary. But hey this is my story, yours is waiting to be written.

My husband, mother and myself had the pleasure of staying at Vacy Hall during June 2010.

It is a beautiful, historic building, that allows you to "step back in time, and pace". The rooms are beautifully decorated, with comfy chairs and beds, and architecture to just sit and be astounded by. The crackling of the fire that evening, added to the overall relaxation and soothing experience.

Graham was most welcoming, informative and well informed of the house, and the area. We look forward to the future when we will enjoy another stay at this marvellous place!
