We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at this business and after 9 years, we realise it is time for us to try our hands at another adventure. We will truly miss this place and what has been created and are looking for an owner that will love it like we have. This successful 20 room motel with onsite Steakhouse is an easy business to operate with great staff.
It recently had a $1.2 million rebuild due to a freak tornado with all the rooms being rebuilt including new curtains, air-conditioners, carpet, furniture, appliances & bathrooms.
Located on the Granite Belt – a premium food and wine destination surrounded by stunning national parks and prehistoric granite formations. The region’s reputation for award winning wine and gourmet produce has also gained national momentum in recent years.
Successful SE QLD Country Motel & Restaurant
The owner of the freehold has just paid for the exterior to be renovated with rendered walls, timber features & tiled accents. The current lessee’s have built a strong business with turnover increasing each year as well as good repeat business.
Winner of Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence for both the motel & restaurant in 2017 (for the third year in a row) as well as booking.com top 20% businesses. The last financial year reveals a dramatic increase to group tours and in turn a healthy bottom line.
The restaurant employs a manager & chef who are capable of running this side of the business with minimal input as/if required by the new lessee’s.
This business is well setup with the managers taking a 4 week break over Christmas & the staff running both businesses very competently in their absence.
