Thank you Jason so much for the lovely review of our property on Trip Advisor. We love hearing from our guests, and sharing their experience of staying with us, especially when you have stayed with us so many times.

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...

Fantastic place to stay. Our go to motel when visiting Toowoomba. Great sized rooms, comfortable beds and pillows, good wifi. Superb location. Close to the shops, hospital. On the highway but not noisy at all. Delicious food, have eaten here lots of times. Lovely staff, always happy to go above and beyond. Great stay, thank you very much.

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!...

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...
