I stayed at the Highlander's one-bedroom apartment while I was up in Toowoomba on a stressful work-related trip. The apartment was clean, comfortable and quiet. A notable point is that the mattress is fantastic and pillow-topped, which made for very welcome nights of sleep. I also really have to compliment the warm service - particularly Michael and Les (who also...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our property on Trip Advisor. Wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, and our great beds, the owners spared no experience when they chose all new beds for the property, and we get lots of comments about them. The company should pay us for the amount of...

Booked last minute during longer than expected work trip. Room was clean and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Both the room service dinner was massive and delicious and both it and the breakfast were great value. This is a Motor Inn that gets everything right.

I stayed for one night recently and thought this place was excellent. I was upgraded to a spa room by the wonderful staff upon arrival. The room smelt clean as soon as I entered. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the extra channels on the tv (pay tv) were great! The shower was good and hot, although I love more...

We stayed here for one night en-route to Brisbane. Checkin/checkout was friendly and efficient. I had forgotten to ask for a room on the ground floor when I booked, but my request was accommodated when we arrived which was much appreciated. We were in room 1 which faced on to an incredibly busy and noisy road, however the hotel has...

Hi Tessacate, thank you so much for taking the time to write a very detailed review about our property and facilities on Trip Advisor.

We stayed two nights in unit 1 which has a shower over the spa. While we managed the climb up and over the step into the spa for a shower I would think it would be a bit awkward for older guests.

As far as motor inns go, this is as good as they get. We were able to easily get an early check in, the rooms were large and clean, the staff all friendly and the rates reasonable. 15 min walk to city centre. Can recommend.
