Very comfortable, the only issue is that the parking is a bit of a shamble...... Everything worked in the unit, good location. Instructions on how to work TV a bit vague initially. If you have milk in coffee ..... maybe ask for extra. I'm nit-picking now.....On the whole great and look forward to my next visit.

Like many country visitors to Toowoomba, we are here for a trip to the specialist. So we appreciate the TLC from management as we will be a bit fragile after the procedure. Close enough to all of the hospitals and day-surgeries

The room was very pleasant and welcoming. It was very clean and serviced every day we were there. The staff were very helpful and they were happy to spend as much time as I needed to help with finding my way around Toowoomba. A big thanks to them for all their help.

My family and I had to go to Toowoomba for a wedding, and didn't want to drive back to Brisbane late at night. We were very happy with the cleanliness of the room and the price.

What a great place this is. The staff were very friendly, the room super clean, the beds comfortable, breaky was tasty and the machine coffee they make was very good too. And to top it off they are pet friendly. Second year in a row we have stayed here and will definitely choose this place to stay at again.
