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...

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...

This motel is located close to the hospital a couple of blocks from the town centre. My room was one of the minority facing the highway but had double glass that worked well to block noise. Clean and tidy with plenty of space. Complimentary guest laundry. Great service.

We stayed at the Highlander for only one night but wish we could have stayed longer! Great rooms, some with spa baths. We were in an apartment and it was so comfortable. The host is very genial and goes out of his way to be helpful, I would definitely recommend staying here when in Toowoomba

Tidy room, delicious linens, and a jacuzzi tub/spa tub in the room (see below). Wonderful cross breeze from front door to balcony keeping the room fresh and cool. Cheeky feathered neighbors. Truly enjoyable stay!

We booked one night enroute to the trip out west. It was a hot day when we arrived. The room was clean and spacious & the aircond was working. The location is right in the middle of a main road, but not noisy at all. The staff was friendly & helpful. Summing it up, the stay was good and would...

These wonderful people saved us from complete disaster. Vacy Hall had lost our booking despite debiting my credit card and confirming. Late in the day and lucky for us the folk at Highlander welcomed us warmly, made us a lovely dinner (and morning breakfast). The room was immaculate and well appointed. Could not fault it for service or amenities. Highly...
