If you are looking for a wonderful yet affordable place to stay in Toowoomba then I highly recommend staying here. The cleanness of the room we stayed in was excellent so much so that I had to make a comment when I booked out. Everyone was so friendly.

This place is so well run. Customer service is great, the rooms are always clean and comfy and the team go out of their way to make checking in and out easy. It's run like an old school family business, which is exactly what it is.

Stayed in a king spa for a couple of nights during the easter period. Check in was efficient and pleasant; the hosts are super friendly and knowledgeable. The room itself is basic, yet comfortable and clean. As mentioned in a couple of other posts, the shower positioned inside the spa was awkward and worth avoiding if you have any hesitations...

Had a nice three night Stay in a 2 bedroom apartment. Spacious, clean and everything you could want to prepare a nice meal. The apartments are not serviced, but if you want clean towels you just leave the dirty ones outside on the bench before 10am and they will replace them. Not far from a major shopping centre.

We needed a motel suddenly as we had a change in plans. Stopped here and we were so glad we did. Great service, they couldn't have been more helpful, meals provided to our door, good size comfortable room. We had a great restful night and decided to stay another night. Know where we will be going next time!

Good sized rooms. Very clean and tidy. Good amenity. Had everything you would want plus a little bit... microwave for example. Good quality flat screen. Great spa bath. Everything was spotlessly clean and beautifully smelling rooms. My only little gripe was the effort and risk getting in and out of the bath/shower. It was not easy and really didn't feel...

Great location, family room is huge with combined living/kitchen area with two single beds and separate room with queen and ensuite. Clean and modern, staff were friendly and helpful. Only minor criticism is that it we thought it as a little odd to have the family room upstairs. Will definitely be back to Toowoomba and stay here again.

You know how sometimes you go back to a place that you've found outstanding and it's never quite as good? That's not the case here. 3 visits now, and each one as good as the first, with a thoughtful, helpful approach to making our stay just that little bit better. Whether it's ringing ahead to get something from the office...

We stayed at this motel in a comfortable, beautifully appointed and very clean 2 bedroom self catering apartment for 6 weeks. The apartment was spacious and had every amenity including kitchen and laundry facilities, air conditioning, TV in both living room and main bedroom. It was fully serviced each week with towels being refreshed as often as you wished. It...
