The Burke and Wills hotel was for years THE place to stay in Toowoomba. One of the first high rise buildings many locals have fond memories of functions held there. From the moment we walked in I liked the old fashioned charm, sort of a 70's time capsule. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable,...

Our first time in Toowoomba and held no great expectations. The hotel is multi storey and very well located in the centre of town allowing easy walking distance to a number of places. The reception greeting was very professional, detailed and friendly. The room whilst large and fairly well appointed was let down by the bathroom, it is in need...

Wonderful staff on reception, check in and out quick and efficient. Room was a good size and bed reasonably comfortable for a night sleep. But the decor in reception is in need of a refresh and well .... the bathroom was a disappointment. This hotel is in need of some TLC which the receptionist acknowledged when I mentioned the bathroom....

We stayed one night while in Toowoomba to see old friends. Our room was very clean. Bed comfortable with crisp white sheets. High ceilings and spacious room (although the ensuite bathroom is a little small). Staff are friendly and helpful. They seem to go the extra mile to make everything above average. For example, nice toiletries are provided, and a...

We had a pleasant stay at this central hotel in Toowoomba. It is closing soon for a major renovation which it does need. Very pleasant staff, well priced meals, however the service in the breakfast room was very slow. The manageress did address this but waiting 45 minute for an omelette is not acceptable.

This is an old building. It beautifully renovated and refurbished. The rooms are very comfortable but the construction nearby made for an early awakening. The single lift was very slow and if you are any way fit,it is better to use the stairs,even on the fourth floor. Breakfast was frustratingly slow and whilst adequate,the coffee was substandard. Overall a reasonable...

I was incredibly impressed with this hotel last night. It's a tired old lady awaiting a much needed facelift - a bit like myself - but I've never slept so well in my life. The staff were magnificent and could not have been more helpful. From Linda on reception who gave me a VIP level greeting and went out of...

Can't fault the central location, was great. If I had not known that refurbishment was planned for 2017 I would have been really disappointed with this hotel. The price tag is high for a room that had faults - bathroom not overly clean, wet and mouldy carpet at bathroom door. Bed was comfy. Has potential and refurbishment will mean it's...
