The Prince Alfred Hotel was named "HOTEL OF THE YEAR" 2016 at The Queensland Hotel Awards. This year, we celebrate our 175th birthday and 30 years of ownership under the Johnson Family. The Prince Alfred Hotel is one of the oldest and most iconic hotels in Queensland.

The Prince Alfred hotel was built in 1842 by Mr D Bergin. It was a two-storey timber hotel surrounded by 40 acres of Cotton Fields. The original cold room still stands today, dating back to 1842. Up for sale in 1866 the Booval Hotel was a hardwood timber building and contained 7 rooms with a detached kitchen a piggery and garden, store-room, dairy, five stables, stockyard and milking bail.

In 1961, the Historic Prince Alfred Hotel was destroyed by fire. It was rebuilt and opened in 1963. In 1987, the Johnson Family purchased the hotel from Carlton and have remained passionately independent ever since.

In December 2012, the iconic Ipswich hotel opened
