The Calamvale Hotel operates on the principles of good old fashioned service and family values, encouraged by the McGuire family who are long standing members of the hospitality community.

The McGuire family saw the need for a good family hotel back in 1979 as the Calamvale and Algester area was starting to open up to families.

At this time they purchased the land and developed the original hotel four years later.

Further construction of the 4.5 star accommodation and function facility was completed in May, 2015.

"We are currently renovating the bar and gaming room of the hotel - this will be completed mid August," said manager Jay Hudson.

Since the early 1900s the McGuire family has been running hotels in the Brisbane and South-East Queensland region.

"In an age where many local pubs have sold out to major retail chains the McGuire Hotel Group remain proudly a family owned business," Jay said.

The Calamvale Hotel offers a family friendly restaurant, a kids' playground, dedicated sports bar (including TAB), a large indoor/outdoor garden terrace bar, retail bottleshop and gaming room as well as a 4.5 star accommodation facility and functions centre.

"Believe it or not playgrounds for kids are a current trend - they've become a huge drawcard for families," Jay said.

"The hotel hosts many community events in our function centre from school formals to sporting club presentations."

The Calamvale Hotel has a dedicated team of 72 including managers, chefs, bar and food attendants, retail attendants and admin staff, with new employment positions predicted post renovations.

McGuires' Hotels are the largest family owned chain of hotels in Queensland and if anyone knows hospitality, it's this dedicated family.

Handed down from one generation to the next, family values focus on the importance of honest value for money in friendly, neighbourly hotels where you will always feel welcome.

The family demonstrate the high standards customers expect with a great modern atmosphere, large range of entertainment for all tastes, the ever increasing variety of beverages and the provision of excellent food.

But there's one thing that will never change and that's their reputation for providing great value and quality, and Jay said he feels lucky to be part of the experience, working in the community he lives in.

With venues all over Brisbane and The Gold Coast, you can experience the McGuires' hospitality almost anywhere.
