Fairly basic accomodation that was clean comfortable and convenient. Fast and easy checkin and out. Didn't get to try food so can't comment. Walked to hospital which was a bit tricky due to poor signage but I'm sure it's easy once you know the way.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our property on Trip Advisor. Glad you found our facilities clean and comfortable. The special gate we have on to the hospital grounds is so convenient for the many guests that use it. We will contact the Hospital Admin staff and ask if they can put up more signage... More

Thank you for having us and accommodating our special request, the kids were very happy as well hence why they both decided to write you a thank you note. Will certainly choose to stay at your motel on my next visit to Toowoomba.

We flew in from Alice Springs and stayed 1 night before a hospital admission. So convenient being able to use room key to walk through to back of hospital grounds. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the 3 bedroom apartment was fantastic to stay in after a long day of flights and thoughts of hospital in the morning!... More

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,... More
