I stayed in this hotel in February 2014 on a work trip. It was a Wednesday night and the hotel was nearly fully booked.
This is motel style accommodation - with two rows of individual rooms (see photos). We stayed in King suites which were fantastic. The room had a large living area, the mattress was super comfortable, and the doona soft and warm. The bathroom was a bit small.
All facilities were there - ironing board, tea and coffee, fridge, internet, table.
The place was super quiet. I didn't hear anyone leave in the morning and the rooms are far enough from the highway that you don't hear the traffic.
The only reason that I am not giving this hotel a 'very good' is the lack in quality beyond the rooms. They have a pool but it is too small to swim in (more a sitting in pool). They have a restaurant but you cannot have breakfast there. Breakfast is provided as room service only. The options for breakfast are highly limited (toast, muesli, baked breakfast). We went out for breakfast to get some fresh fruit, nice coffee and pancakes instead.
We had a very average experience dinning in the hotel restaurant. Even though the hotel was fully booked, they only had 2 kitchen staff working. As a result, our orders took 1.5 hours (!!!) to arrive. We waited for ages for our starters - which never arrived. When they finally brought the dishes out, they arrived about 10min from each-other so that one person would have finished eating before the next person's main arrived. I was most displeased when they tried to charge me $24 for a (very poorly made) salad. One person with food allergies had to order a salad because they could not have anything else on the menu. Instead of making a nice fantasy main salad (which we usually get), the salad was no more than lettuce leaves and a few slices of cucumber. To their defence: the front desk reimbursed me the $24 when I complained about the salad at check-out the next day.
I would stay again because of the nice rooms - but won't be eating here again.
Oh, also be aware that this hotel is not in Toowoomba! The motel is in Highfields, about 20-30min drive from Toowoomba.
