Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review of your recent stay at Athena. Due to the fact that we are a corporate based Motel, our restaurant facilities are available from Monday-Thursday night. Management made the decision to close the restaurant over the weekend as it was not gaining the interest or attention expected from our leisure guests. Therefore, it was not viable to continue to keep it open during these times should only two people be interested. Our staff are more than happy to recommend you a multitude of dining options here in the Garden City as we are certainly not the only restaurant available to you! We hope that this did not cause any inconvenience during your stay and that you understand our reasoning. Thank you again and we hope to see you on your future travels. Kind Regards, Louise Athena Motel Apartments Reception

Hi there Lisa! Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with some online feedback. I am disappointed to read that you found the room unwelcoming, our management team worked hard with designers when the motel was first established to ensure that all rooms were aesthetically pleasing, well equipped and comfortable. I will pass on your suggestions in regards to the lamp in hopes that the lighting issue can be rectified. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to see you again soon next time you are in beautiful Toowoomba. Kind Regards, Kaitlyn - Reception Athena Motel Apartments

The only thing is the car parking, if you have a 4 wheel drive which we have the parking is very tight if the car beside you parks to close to the white line it is a bit of a squeeze to get out of your car.

Hello there, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with some constructive online feedback regarding your stay here at Athena. We rely on our guests communications with us to ensure we are providing the very best stay in Toowoomba and we welcome all opinions, concerns and praises. We are so happy to hear that the only complaint you had throughout your stay with us was regarding the parking facilities we provide. At Athena, we have endeavored to utilize all available space within both our rooms and the property itself and we believe that we truly have accomplished this. We provide car parking both covered and uncovered for our guests to accommodate any higher vehicles and we also have an extra large car space located at the front of our motel which many of our guests who require space for a truck or van do appreciate. We also have an additional 5 car spaces in case our guests have multiple vehicles or visitors. We do apologize however if you have any difficulty and we hope to see you in your future travels to Toowoomba. Kind Regards, Emma, Reception Team, Athena Motel Apartments
