Centrally located which is good. The room was adequate and shower good. It's a good "basic" hotel which is attached to gaming and event facilities. That's probably why there is a big problem with the size of the carpark. We had tremendous difficulty getting a park and felt the overnight guests should be catered to first. While there is "other" parking around, it's not in a secure carpark. We also found the elevator (only 1) VERY slow. WiFi was quite good and bed comfortable. Our "view" was metal roofs of other buildings.

Spent 2 nights here to take in The Carnival of Flowers and found it to be a great central location. We had a King room with spa which was large, quiet, comfortable, (except for the stupidly designed couch with a seat so deep that if you wanted to lean against the back you ended up almost laying down) - it was also nicely decorated. There were balconies on two sides with lovely views. The only negative for the room was the maintenance, a worry in this time of Covid. The low coffee table and the coffee making area marble tops were not even wiped down and drips from the morning coffee and a couple of wine drops were still there after the room was supposedly serviced. We did leave a bathmat/towel on the floor to be replaced which it was, but the used, wet one was not removed. Check in was easy and the staff friendly. We did order breakfast in the room one morning which was totally cold when it arrived so would not recommend that. It could be that the staff were waiting for ages to use the lift - only one for use of staff and patrons, and supposedly in Covid times only to be used by 2 people - there was always a wait - and people ignored the restrictions most of the time.

We were welcomed without a prior booking for breakfast. On arrival range of cooked dishes was limited but chef brought out food as necessary for the client load. Food was delicious! Plates were not clean though! Great pod coffee!! More gluten free options would be fantastic but certainly didn’t go away hungry. Buffet breakfast Great value for money. We will definitely return there.

This accomodation was arranged for us when my husband had to work in Toowoomba for a few day. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived having suspected that we may have been booked into 'cheap' accomodation. The foyer of the Hotel was beautiful and staff were so welcoming. Our room was not large (being a corporate room) however was big enough for the two of us. Facilities were lovely and everything was clean. We had a small problem with a shower head but staff were apologetic and had it fixed straight away. Everyone was very lovely and the food at the downstairs restaurant was great for our first night there - not knowing the area and arriving late we didn't have time to search around. This hotel is central to everywhere and we were able to leave the car and walk everywhere. So many amazing food places around and lots of places to explore. If we are ever visiting Toowoomba again and arranging our own accomodate, we would stay here again. Thank you so much for a lovely visit.

This is meant to be a 4 Star Hotel... OK... Location is in the middle of Toowoomba, which is good for visitors etc. Rooms seem to be fairly soundproof, no road noise etc once it gets out of business hours. Hotel is clean & tidy. Looks nice. We went with the Indulgence package as it was our Anniversary. Which is meant to include a couple of extras.. A platter, chocolates, spa pack.. Speaking of the spa pack.. It comes with a Dental pack only thing is, that there is 2 guests they give you ONE TOOTHBRUSH, are we meant to share it? And the only thing that could be used in the spa was a very tiny packet of bath salts....not sure why it's called a spa pack. The room was fine. Bed a bit hard. Closing the toilet door might be an issue for a bigger person. Spa could do with some handrails for people that are no longer spring chickens. TV above the spa is useless as you can't actually watch TV only movies... Couple of issues.. Phone wouldn't work when we went to order dinner, eventually worked out the power point had to be turned on to get the phone to work.... Coffee machine needs to be descaled, lucky I ran some water through it first as it came out pretty dirty. The meal from Zacks cost $39 + $5.90 room service fee... A bit of a rort! Dearer than using uber eats... The food was OK, supposed to be wings, yet you only receive the tiny piece... Is it worth $39 who knows... The room includes Buffet breakfast in Zacks too... We had bacon & eggs... Tasted fine, would have been better if it wasn't just luke warm... Over all a bit over priced at $300 for the night!
