Stayed in this hotel for business and family,it is centrally located which I found appealing as not knowing Toowoomba it was easily recognisable from highway. Free mini bar excellent,our room had been updated with new linen and bedding and was very comfortable ,reception was very friendly and accommodating when requesting information of surroundings.

We struggled finding this motel as it is built in the middle of an industrial estate. The car park is tiny but there is plenty more parking at the warehouse shops next to it. Staff were polite. Room was very small and bed was hard. It was clean and had a microwave and toaster. They say it is a free...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review regarding your recent stay with us at the Downs Motel. As we are located within the Bernoth Shopping Centre, the location is not what you expect for a motels location however the majority of our guests do comment that it is much quieter opposed to being located on the main...

Rooms are small but clean. Very friendly staff. Central to the city of Toowoomba. Restaurants and shopping centres just 5 minutes from the motel. Car park available at the motel. Free small chocolate biscuits, juice & milk in the bar fridge which was nice and welcoming.

Husband and I came to Toowoomba on a scouting trip before our big move to this city. Stayed here for 5 days and the staff were beyond helpful when we needed unusual items (eg. Measuring tape, umbrella and printing/scanning documents). Amenities are adequate and the location is great! Would definitely recommend this place.

This is probably a bit of an unusual review, but I can't praise this motel enough. I have stayed at the Down's Motel many times since about late 2008, with my last stay in late April, 2014 with my mum and aunt. It is no coincidence that 2008 is when I started my Masters (Physics) at the University in town....

Small Hotel. Well located to main city and restaurants. Very clean and well presented. It is back from the road so was very quiet. This is not a luxury hotel, however it was perfect for a one night business stay.
