Why Ange & Jeff Aikman chose Toowoomba
We fell in love with Banksia Cottage the first time we walked through the door. Soon after that, we were the proud new owners of the historic Banksia Cottage. Our guests love Banksia Cottage because it is enchanting and historic. The location is also unbeatable, positioned in a quiet tree-lined street, but only a 10 minute walk from the CBD, restaurants, parks and gardens!

Perfect birthday getaway
We had the pleasure of staying at Banksia Cottage as a 4day getaway to celebrate our labrador's 10th birthday. Ange and Jeff have an absolutely gorgeous property in the most perfect locale in a quiet neighborhood, only a km from the city centre. The cottage exudes comfort and warmth throughout, Our dog was in heaven exploring their backyard which is more like a parkland with so many trees and bushes. My husband and I took their decorative sign to Relax to heart and spent days drinking coffee whilst watching netflix on the comfy furniture. This is truly the perfect place for a getaway and quality time with loved ones.
Picture Perfect Cottage
We had a fantastic four night stay at Banksia Cottage. The location is perfect, being both within walking distance of the CBD but very quiet and with a park around the corner. The cottage itself is a pleasure to stay in; comfortable and with fabulous ambiance. Perfect for a couple or small family. We noticed that dogs are also well provided for...though we left ours in Sydney.
Having spent part of my teen years in the 70's in a cottage very similar to Banksia, it had me reminiscing about those times especially when looking through the box of records and finding LP's that I had brought in the early 70's. My wife who came over from England in the 60's loves the cottage and garden as it reminded her of the cottage gardens in the village where they lived. We loved everything about Banksia cottage and have rebooked for when we are in Toowoomba again. If your looking for a cosy, warm, relaxing and comfortable place to sleep and stay then Banksia Cottage is the place to stay.
Thankyou Jeff and Ange
Wonderful place to stay. Superb attention to detail, very clean and comfortable. Warm and cosy in winter. Very pet friendly. Our miniature schnauzer had the best holiday ever. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners Jeff and Ange who couldn't do enough to make our stay the best experience possible. We totally recommend Banksia Cottage, we will definitely be back for a return visit. Greg Nerryl and Floyd the schnauzer
Feels like home!
My family absolutely loved this cottage. It was cozy, all the comforts and really set the scene for a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. It was well presented, very clean, kids loved the cricket set and the board games made for family time around the fireplace. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
So clean, comfortable and atmospheric. Every possible need was catered for, with some added thoughtful touches. The bed was SO comfy. Loved the wood fire too. Very well maintained with a pretty garden. Handy location. Very dog-friendly with nice park behind back fence. Thanks for a most enjoyable experience, Ange and Jeff.
