It was one of the cheapest deals I could get and included a continental breakfast basic supply minivan and WiFi (that was very slow). It was close to everything that we intended to do and back far enough off the riadvto be quiet

Not bad room was clean very helpful at the front desk close to shopping centre. The front desk was fantastic changed our room to a lower floor because we had a toddler The only problem I had was location which isn't the hotel fault.

This motel is located in the middle shopping complex. From the outside it looks quite dated. Rooms were a pleasant surprise. Nicely renovated, clean and comfortable. It is far enough back from the main road to not hear any traffic noise. It is only about a 10 minute walk to town. Would stay here again. Excellent value for money...And free...

Stayed two nights as we were in town for a wedding. The staff are really friendly and the room came with complementary coke and orange juice. the rooms are a little dated but you get a very comfy bed, free WiFi and TV has some foxtel channels. If I am ever back in Toowoomba I would definitely comeback.

We stayed in one of the ground floor units on the left, it was a large room but needs updating. Bathroom tiny with horrible lighting after dark. Noisy aircon unit made it hard to sleep. The bed was comfy with nice linen so extra point for that! I would shop around at others in this price range first.

Hello and thank you for your feedback. It's frustrating for motel owners and managers when we aren't told about any issues you may have while staying with us. This sort of thing could have been brought to our attention and we would have happily up-graded you to one of our queen studio rooms.

Wonderful little motel. Friendly staff and we took advantage of the free continental breakfast on offer. And yes..complimentary timtams and cold drinks in the fridge. What a great touch. Highly recommend.

Highs: Excellent comfort all round (especially the bedding). Great TV selection. Finally I found a motel with Air Con that actually works. Very friendly and helpful staff. Easy access to CBD Lows: Could do with more cutlery and crockery.

Went and stayed at the downs motel last weekend. Great location as its only down the road from town and the nightlife. Room was clean, dainty, good for the weekend and the reception lady was lovely and very helpful. Would definitely stay again. P.S The free tim tams in the mini bar were after a long night out

Hi Csharman and thank-you for your feedback. Our location is set back from the main rd (Ruthven St or New England Hway) which ensures our guests enjoy a quiet night stay. We have gone into every room to test the heaters and did notice one particular room was set on timer which has now been reset. All rooms are thoroughly...
