Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great place to stay in Toowoomba! Very central location to visit everywhere we needed to go. For three people, the 2 room motel unit was perfect and way larger than other motel units. We really appreciated the kitchenette and the beds were very comfortable.

We stayed here briefly for a hospital visit, room was amazing, clean and to a real high standard, staff were super friendly also. Definitely worth re visiting and would be fantastic for all types of stays. Staying again next week, and have no hesitation in doing so.

A very warm friendly greeting upon arrival. Our room was a spa deluxe and was great. We ordered dinner to our room. My partner said "best steak" ever. We enjoyed a cooked breakfast delivered next morning - again delicious. Highly recommend, will most certainly return. THANK YOU

Rockhampton, Australia58 contributions5 helpful votes
Stayed at this motel back in 2009. Has not been maintained to any level since, becoming sad and rundown. Room was small with poor layout. Expect to sit on couch facing TV, not at 90 degrees. Small wooden table with 2 uncomfortable wooden chairs for dining. Would require a severe makeover before we were to return.

We stayed here for 3 nights recently to visit the Festival of Flowers. I booked via phone back in February at a great price, and I rang and confirmed the booking about a week before we left home on our road trip. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we had a very large room with plenty of space. We would definitely recommend this motor inn.

The room was very clean and tidy. Phoning up to book was an easy process and communication to book in was very good. We ordered breakfast and it was great value for money. We will definitely look at staying there again on our next visit to Toowoomba.

First impressions at reception friendly staff asked if we could have late checkout they were happy to oblige could have given more direction as to where our room was, went all the way up the other end but our room was pretty much right above reception. They also explained as we asked about balcony the door was broken so needed to be careful. Once getting to our room we did realise the balcony door was actually fully broken and had to move whole door to side for safety. On first impression the room did not seem clean the shower screen looked very dirty. The next morning we woke to coffee tea and sugar sachets no milk had to call down to reception for some, could also have provided more sugar. Our room had a spa bath and went to run it and soap residue still on the soap holder and hair in the jets had to give it a good clean before we could use it, then turned the jets on and one off the jets totally blew off so all in all wasn't a very nice experience and will definately not be going back refer to photos included
