Allan Cunningham Motel

Location: Toowoomba, Southern Queensland Country

Check In: 13:00|Check Out: 10:00
Hours: 7am - 9pm (24 hrs with night bell)

A FREE CONTINENTAL BUFFET BREAKFAST (see photo) is offered to all Guests on each morning of their stay in the Licensed Restaurant. The Motel is centrally located just 2 kilometers from the Toowoomba CBD, close to Shopping Centers, Clubs, Hotels and the University.

The motel draws its name from a great explorer and botanist Allan Cunningham who explored the Darling Downs in 1827. Cunningham's Gap and the Cunningham Highway in the State's south east are named after him. The Architecture and theme of the Motel is to commemorate those earlier explorers and the double brick construction certainly eliminates those external noises. All refurbishments are completed with this theme in mind.

A cleaning program with Healthy Hotels is in place to add to your comfort and make your stay more enjoyable.


We have 24 motel units; including self-contained Studio, 1 and 2 bedroom Apartments, Spa & Executive suites, Family rooms and rooms with queen and queen plus a single bed. There is a variety of combinations to suite all your needs.

Our Licensed Bar/Restaurant caters not only for that free breakfast but also for that unique dining pleasure of an evening. For those who just wish to put their feet up we offer free room service.
