I stayed at the Highlander 3 years ago as I was leaving Toowoomba to move to Townsville. This time I was only visiting for a night and decided that I would stay again as last time was lovely, even though the pillows were a little average. Happy to say, this time around, zero issues whatsoever. Room was spotless and quiet,...

Only spent one night in an upstairs room remote from the Highway so it was quiet. Rooms are very spacious and clean, Staff are friendly. In House dining was really good and when my steak was overcooked it was not charged. Recommend this place to all. Right on the Highway and close to everything.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about our property. Great to hear the room was quiet, and sharing that experience on Trip Advisor. Due to our location near the main highway it does "scare" some people from booking. Glad you enjoyed your meal too, and sorry to hear the steak was overcooked but glad...

The Highlander is rated at 4 1/2 stars but is worth 5 plus. Good location (especially in relation to the Base Hospital if you have anyone there); not far from city centre; easy to find; very well appointed; clean, comfortable, good sized rooms, great staff. Price is very reasonable. Overall a very pleasant experience and highly recommended.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about our property on Trip Advisor. Glad you enjoyed your stay and breakfast. Toowoomba is slightly higher for accommodation rates, however the prices in the past year have slowly come down compared to two years ago - when the same stay would have cost 120 pounds. The WiFi...

I stayed at the Highlander's one-bedroom apartment while I was up in Toowoomba on a stressful work-related trip. The apartment was clean, comfortable and quiet. A notable point is that the mattress is fantastic and pillow-topped, which made for very welcome nights of sleep. I also really have to compliment the warm service - particularly Michael and Les (who also...

Booked last minute during longer than expected work trip. Room was clean and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Both the room service dinner was massive and delicious and both it and the breakfast were great value. This is a Motor Inn that gets everything right.
