The Burke & Wills Hotel is proof that beauty does improve with age. Unveiling its charming new design after undergoing eleven months of extensive refurbishment. The prestigious hotel, found on Ruthven Street in the heart of Toowoomba, was built in 1956 and officially re-opened its doors on 13th May 2018.
Many of Toowoomba’s local business owners, operators and socialites enjoyed an exclusive first hand look at our new hotel when they joined us for our gala unveiling on Saturday May 12th 2018.
After 335 days and over 15 million dollars of extensive internal and external renovations and refurbishments the all new, all improved Burke & Wills Hotel has reopened its doors and the results are breathtaking.
The family-owned Hakfoort Group enhanced the hotel’s timeless elegance using contemporary themes and an old world charm design with the addition of state of the art modern facilities. The luxury hotel entrance’s gold revolving doors open up to a five-meter high grand lobby with two new large reception desks which are open 24 hours a day.
In addition to the public spaces, the Hakfoort Group has also created a completely new look for the guest rooms and suites. Featuring 82 elegant guest rooms ranging from Corporate and Superior Rooms to Deluxe Queen and the impressive Luxury King Spa Suites, each of which promises guests’ the highest quality accommodation available in Toowoomba.
Following this significant 15 million dollar renovation project, Burke & Wills begins a new chapter in its history as Toowoomba’s luxury hotel. This gem of a hotel repositions itself as a landmark for travelers in Toowoomba for both business and pleasure.
