We stayed for a night and were very happy. The king room was spacious and clean with all the expected amenities. There was even a spa bath - luxury! Reception staff were friendly and efficient. There is a pool and covered parking.

Motel rooms are pretty standard layout but very clean and well furnished so a more pleasant experience. Location is a little out of town but a short drive. The restuarant again is far better than a motel average with great service and good food and a nice setting I would go to for dinner even if not staying there. For... More

The reception staff are really lovely, however we were not happy with original choice of King with spa as it is on the 2nd level with access up stairs and no access to a terrace. Also, the TV channels didn't work so we requested a room change to one that had a terrace on the ground floor. We were offered... More

This is a standard highway-style hotel which pays just a little more attention to detail than most. Our room had a comfortable chaise lounge as well as two desk chairs. The beds are perfectly adequate, although not quite like sleeping on a cloud. Wi-Fi is fast. The bathroom is quite spartan with toiletries placed in wall dispensers. The shower cubicle... More

Going to the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers is not just a one day event. Packed the car for a road trip to the region to have a good look around and over night stay. We pre-booked the BEST WESTERN PLUS Ambassador on Ruthven Motor Inn before we left. No deposit required just the credit card number as security. This was... More

This motel is a short drive from the CBD, easy to locate and well maintained. It is set back from the main road so is in a quiet location. Car parking not overly generous for todays larger vehicles. Room was spacious and quiet, the window coverings did let quite a bit of light in from the outside night lights until... More

By far the best hotel I've stayed in in toowoomba. The rooms are a good size and completely modern. The bathroom is fully renovated complete with spa bath. The room service menu is very extensive and the meals are delicious. Staff are very friendly. Will definitely stay again on my next trip.

Friendly staff, comfy room, modern, tea and coffee making difficult, no bench room for it, but overall really nice, close to town, one of the best restaurants in town there, and a pub just across the road for a cheap counter meal or drinks.

Nice friendly staff, easy check-in and quiet well appointed rooms which were spotless! Surprisingly good restaurant in a suburban motor inn. Meal was exceptional (serving lobster no less), great selection of wines and a short walk from our room. We'll definitely stay here again!
