“A Good Value Motel”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

We spent one night here. This motel is set in attractive and treed grounds. Our room was comfortable and very clean. The shower was very good. Although our room was just one back from the busy highway the noise from passing traffic was not too bad. The hosts were friendly and helpful. It was good value for money and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: A room at the back would probably be quieter.

I have stayed here several times over the last few months. Rooms are very clean and comfy. But what sets this motel apart are Ben and Adele who run it. They are awesome and nothing is too much trouble for them. Would not stay any where else in Toowoomba.

Stayed one night & found the room to be clean, comfy & reasonably priced.
Being on the main road, I found a lot of traffic noise & the workers staying there at the same time arose early and were very loudly talking outside our room from 6.30am. Not the motels fault, just guests without manners!!
Probably wouldn't choose this motel if I had my time over.

Room Tip: Don't get room 9 as the parking is in the corner

Stayed here one Saturday night. Staff very friendly and cheerful. Requested a room at the back so no traffic noise. Rooms large, clean, quiet and comfortable. Would stay again and recommend to others. The only hassle is getting to the hotel if approaching from the west. Had to go into the shopping centre, make a "U"turn to get across the traffic island.

stayed 2 nights
good value for money - clean - modern - serviced and comfy bed - friendly owners.
near old part of town which is ok for 6 days but not much use on Sunday for shopping
unless you drive but there are 1 or 2 small shops nearby open on Sundays within walking distance
it is on the highway but the noise in the room was minimal and did not bother us at all.
big tree near entrance/exit can cause access/exiting difficulties - might need to remove tree for safety reasons asap - safety of people comes first.

Room Tip: as far from the road as possible

I have stayed twice at Garden City motel and it is the best motel I've stayed at in a long time. The rooms are very clean and the staff go out of their way to make you feel at home after a long days work. The food is fantastic. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Toowoomba.Megan.

Room Tip: I have stayed in two different rooms and I think all the rooms would be as good as the next one
