Grand View not just by name but character too
Overlooking North Stradbroke Island is the delightful Grand View famed for being the oldest licensed hotel in Queensland. Built in 1851 it still maintains its old world charm. It is only a 30 minute drive from Brisbane CBD.
We recently enjoyed a birthday lunch celebration in the outdoor restaurant. Our visit coincided with St Paddy's Day and was very festive and busy. The staff were dressed for the occasion and all were friendly and accommodating.
On their website the heading "Heritage" is well worth the read if you enjoy learning the history of places you visit. If you choose to stay, the accommodation has been beautifully refurbished in the style of the era in which it was built and would make a great base to explore this beautiful region.
