Brisbane’s Acacia Ridge Hotel hits the market with $30 million expectations

A Brisbane pub asset that figures in the top 10 gaming hotels in Queensland is up for sale for an expected $30 million.

The hotel has hit the market amid a backdrop of high-profile hotel transactions in 2016, with the most recent being the Colombian Hotel in Sydney for about $20 million.

Ray White’s Andrew Jolliffe and CBRE's Glenn Price have been appointed to sell the large-format Acacia Ridge Hotel in Brisbane's South West Corridor. 

Joliffe has been instrumental in other prominent hotel deals in NSW such as Parramatta's $60 million Albion Hotel and The Colombian Hotel. 

According to him, market thirst for A grade freehold property such as the 18,450 sqm Acacia Ridge Tavern site remains unquenched. 

"We've seen the depth of the market tested several times this year in gateway cities across the Australian East Coast, and the almost invariable result has been that high quality assets which enjoy a confluence of both scale and opportunity remain compelling and commensurately sought after by well-informed capital,” said Jolliffe. 

Located at 386 Beaudesert Road in the blue collar industrial precinct of Acacia Ridge, The Acacia Ridge Hotel has benefited from the expansion of surrounding residential suburbs including Sunny Bank, Sunny Bank Hills and the $600 million Cornerstone Living master plan development at Cooper Plains.

Sitting next to the hotel is the Acacia Ridge Intermodal Freight Terminal, which services rail and road freight from the broader Queensland logistics network.

CBRE's Price added that the major land size upon which the hotel is located would also provide an investor with ancillary mixed use, or wholesale alternative opportunities. 

The Acacia Ridge Hotel is regarded as one of the most sought after hotel properties in Queensland, and recently underwent a renovation. It has figured consistently in the state’s top 10 gaming hotels ranked by profit. 

It has 45 gaming machines, a large format drive-through bottle shop, bars and conference facilities as well as a 34-room accommodation centre.

The hotel will be sold through an expressions of interest process ending late October. It is expected to draw wide investor interest.

The Commonwealth Games in 2018 are an added boost, said Joliffe.

“We are bringing to the market a prime 18,740 sqm commercial property holding, set upon a major arterial road and which has historically generated significant annual profit.”

The hotel was bought by Sydney investors Peter Calligeros and Stephen Farley for $16 million in 2014, according to the Australian Financial Review.
