Looking for a pet friendly cottage in Toowoomba? We have just stayed at Banksia Cottage which is in a quiet area and not too far away from anything in Toowoomba. Beautifully presented with an eclectic range of furniture and furnishings, it was very clean and had everything needed. Lovely fully fenced garden for our English Cocker Spaniel, Mr Bentley. We...

We really enjoyed our stay at Banksia Cottage. Great location. Very relaxed, the gardens were beautiful and our little dog equally enjoyed himself. Everything was a stroll away. Loved the records, the record player and the fire place were awesome. Overall the place had a lot of charm and was very inviting. Thankyou for a great stay. Look forward to...

A beautiful historic cottage in the heart of Toowoomba. It is just lovely. Historic, yes, but with mod cons (air-con etc) for a comfortable stay. There are two bedrooms (you get the entire cottage when you rent it) and it is dog friendly. After staying here, any standard hotel or motel will seem drab and boring. My wife and I...

Stayed at Banksia Cottage as a treat for my birthday and fell in love with the place (as did my dog)! The charming decor, the fireplace, the garden and amenities were first rate. And so close to everything! About a half hour walk to Queens Park, a 20 minute walk to the town centre and nearby Cafes. Definitely coming back!

I am sitting in the cottage writing this just before I have to leave :( Very cozy , great little fireplace and plenty of warmth from aircon as well. Nice bed and furnishings and very well equipped. More than most people will need. Loved the little things like the nostalgic record collection and turntable and games books etc. We loved...

We stayed in this beautiful cottage just recently and it was fantastic. The kids were able to play in the backyard and there was park across the road as well. It's close to town and the cottage is beautiful - it was also great to stay somewhere self contained so we could cook our own meals. Compared to staying at...

We have stayed at Banksia cottage twice now and both times have found it cosy and welcoming. The open fireplace is just lovely and the beds and rooms comfortable for a family to stay. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals although it is only a short drive to the Main Street of Toowoomba with restaurants etc. There...

This is our second stay at Banksia Cottage and we just love it. It is warm, cosy and comfortable, perfect for a stay in Toowoomba. When traveling with children I try and avoid interconnecting hotels rooms - the living areas are so confined. Here we could spread out and relax and feel like we were home away from home. There...
