My wife and I needed a place to stay while the kids camped at their very full house containing grandmother, aunt, uncle and cousins three minutes away. We had expected to stay somewhere on James St, when I came across this place. The bed was comfortable, the WiFi was good, and the bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly and...

We stayed at the Garden City Motel in Toowoomba once previously and were not disappointed with our stay there this time either. Even though it is on a main road,the motel is still very quite. It was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Overall a great and fantastic place to stay.

This motel featured rooms that open onto a garden setting. The hosts were very nice, and the rooms were quite comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing in the garden after our day long drive. The motel was located on a quiet street and easy to get back on the highway the next day.

I have booked 2 bedroom apartment for 1 night after looking at the photos on the website. When we checked in I was told that they were situated at different property. So after I got the key we had to drive out onto the busy road and turn right. When we pulled up I nearly had a massive panic attack....

We arrived at the Garden City Motor Inn in Toowoomba to stay to enjoy a night with our kids who lived just around the corner. The owner asked us if we wanted an upgrade in one of their units that they were refurbishing around the corner (even nearer to our kids). Obviously we said yes and what a wonderful upgrade...

We often stay here for a weekend stopover in Toowoomba. The motel is in a good position being close to all Toowoomba's main shopping spots. It is also only a short walk away from the local Club where one can get a selection of meals. The rooms are in excellent condition and one could not ask for more....they have everything...

The Garden City is one of your older-style variety of motel. It probably could be said it has seen better days. So, for starters, it is competitively priced (though it must also be said competition between motels in Toowoomba can be intense). My room was clean and of more or less a standard size and amenity, with comfy queen-size bed,...
