While generic motels and uninspiring hotels are a dime-a-dozen in the Darling Downs, the region does harbour some highly atmospheric options, from a sophisticated, historic guesthouse in Toowoomba, to welcoming homesteads in Crows Nest and luxe, vineyard-flanking cabins in the Granite Belt. The Granite Belt is a popular weekend getaway, with cheaper rates earlier in the week and accommodation commonly booking out early on weekends.
