“Nice”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

My family and I stayed at the Ruthven Street Motor Inn during the festival of flowers. I was the only availlable in Toowoomba at the time.. The owner were nice and explained that they had recently purchased the property and wer in the process of renovating. It was inexpensive, but it was clean. The owners were loveley.. If you have a family and are on a budjet I would reccomend that you give it a try.

Room Tip: Ask the owner if you are not sure, they are only to willing to help

Reviewed 25 September 2011

We booked a self-catering family suite for 4 adults and 2 little children. What we got was two interleading rooms with a double bed and a single bed in one room together with two single beds in the other room. To accommodate the 6th person, management brought in a roll-up bed. The only space for this bed would have blocked the entrance to the toilet, so we had to take the mattress off and put it on the floor.

While the rooms were nice and clean, the title "self-catering family suite" is not too accurate. They have turned two normal inter-leading motel rooms into a "self-catering" suite by using some of the already limited space to put in a work surface which incorporates a microwave oven and small fridge. There were 2 or 3 bar stools at the work surface for the 6 of us to sit on to eat. Washing up facilities were non-existant other than the basin in the bathroom which had lots of chips and dents in it from people trying to wash crockery cutlery etc. What was a nice family suite, does not make an adequate self-catering unit!!!
