This is our second stay at Banksia Cottage and we just love it. It is warm, cosy and comfortable, perfect for a stay in Toowoomba. When traveling with children I try and avoid interconnecting hotels rooms - the living areas are so confined. Here we could spread out and relax and feel like we were home away from home.
There are lots of thoughtful touches: a dvd library, electric blankets, effective heating, a well appointed kitchen, tasteful decor and even bread, butter, jam, milk, tea, coffee and Tim Tams!!
The rate is really reasonable, it's well located near the centre of town. Couldn't recommend more highly.
