The Veresdale Hotel

Logan City Area
One of the older, family friendly hotels in Queensland, the Veresdale, or the 'V' Hotel as it is now affectionately known, was sold privately in November, 2010. Since that time it has been tastefully renovated in keeping with the best attributes of the friendly Hotel atmosphere. The Veresdale Hotel is located on the Mount Lindsay Highway approximately half-way between Jimboomba and Beaudesert. It is situated right in the heart of Queensland's richest dairy, beef and horse stud area, with the very best of the state's thoroughbred racing horse studs. The Hotel may look a little small from the outside, but once indoors you have access to their beautiful outdoor dining areas, where the pastoral view is quite spectacular. Don't forget they have a stylish gazebo for that special luncheon or dinner. In their new modern kitchen, chefs produce fine food from their Bar and Grill and offer an array of great cuisine specials. Families with children are welcome at the Veresdale Hotel and can either dine outside or in their fully renovated and air-conditioned restaurant which offers an inviting, relaxed atmosphere, typical of the friendly Hotel tradition. See you at the 'V'.
