170 Brisbane Road‚ Booval

Ipswich’s Prince Alfred Hotel, which locals have fondly been referring to as ‘The PA’ for many a decade now, continues to forge new frontiers in the local hospitality scene.

The hotel can lay claim to having the biggest craft beer bar in the southern hemisphere in Tap’d – with 72 craft beers and ciders flowing on any given day.

And that it won the title of Hotel of the Year – in Australia – at the 2017 Australian Hotel Association Awards.

The hotel is also home to the 250-seater Char’d restaurant where the menu includes The Ultimate Seafood Platter – an eye-popping spread for two that features seasonal seafood such as fresh prawns, oysters, red claw crayfish and crab, along with fresh fruit.

There’s also a more relaxed dining area in The Plantations which took out the Best Casual Dining Restaurant at the 2018 Queensland Hotel Awards.

All up, the whole venue can seat up to 700 people on a busy night.

The hotel has undergone extensive remodelling to become the stunning venue it is today.

Can't fault the food.

The food is fantastic, the staff were very switched on and we had a great time. The only problem is due to the popularity of the place it was a tad noisy. But the food more than made up for that. more »
