We dropped in for a beer while our wives finished shopping. We ordered 2 coronas only to be told "We only have one". No problems, we will have a corona and a boags. Second round "we will have 2 boags" Sorry just sold the last one. We believe the day before, they ran out of food. All this, according to... More

Good value. Very friendly staff. After a stroll around the town you must have a drink here. Ordered a very yummy lunch before our trip back to Cairns on the train. Good service & food was great. Calamari , chicken burger & a wrap. All very good. This is the oldest pub in town & definitely worth a visit. Sit... More

After travelling to Kuranda on the Skyrail and a walk around the little town, we went to the local pub for a few cold beers and a meal. Apparently, new owners (or Managers) have just started running it and there were a few problems with some other customers with printing of receipts etc and we noticed one table had ordered... More

We liked the look of this hotel so decided to have lunch on the veranda after coming up on the train. We ordered a drink while we looked at the menu and then tried to order our lunch, the time was 12.50pm. We were told quite rudely that "the food is now off". We are not serving anymore food! Since...

The pub is a good place to stop for a beer and some eats when you are finished exploring Kuranda and making your way back down to the the railway or cableway station. It is not as busy and hectic as the cafes in town and you can sit on the veranda and people watch while cooling off in the... More

Pub used to be a must go in Kuranda, now its an absolute dive. People lucky to speak English, food not worthy of a greasy spoon roadhouse. My family member ordered a pretty lame lunch meal and the waiter came back three times and said certain fillings of his order had run out. He finally settled on a steak and... More

Visited for lunch and was very happy with my barramundi and chips. Service was good and the amenities were clean including the toilets. Really liked the fact that drinks are served in chilled glassware.

There is very little accommodation in Kuranda itself, so if you do want to stay in this village in the rainforest, this is about it. The rooms are spacious and they are clean. The location is perfect. You basically get your key and that is the last you see of anyone and that is not necessarily a bad thing. It... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kuranda Hotel Motel has a step back in time feel when you walk in built in 1880 & set at the top of Skyrail and Famous Kuranda Railway. Patrons can enjoy the large deck overlooking the rain forest while tasting the Famous Guinness Pot Pie and pint Guinness. Kuranda is a good halfway spot for exploring the Tablelands with great accommodation & children room, fantastic lunches and friendly service. Pop in and visit the markets which is a 4 min walk, or maybe check out the Candy Shop 3 min up the road. Accom rates start from $100. Why not give us a ring and make a booking? ... more   less
