Bellevue Hotel hits market for $2.1m

A WORKING man's pub with more than a century of tall Toowoomba tales to its name has just been put on the market.

The Bellevue Hotel is selling for $2.1 million after shutting its doors in July due to health issues for publican Paul Moore, a legendary sportsman who was inducted into the Queensland Boxing Hall of Fame last year.

The two-storey pub was put on Toowoomba Regional Council's heritage list in 2013 as a nod to its 1904 construction.

Colliers International agent Drew Camm expected a quick sale with a chance the Bellevue could be up-and-running by early next year.

"It's a fantastic opportunity for someone to own an icon of Toowoomba," he said.

"And all the licences are included - 20 pokies, the bottle shop, keno and the gaming and liquor licences."

The Mort St hotel sits at the future gateway to the city via the Toowoomba bypass.

"The old bottle shop is ripe for someone to put in units or something as well, so it could potentially become a hotel-motel," Mr Camm said.

The Bellevue's fine-dining restaurant, Isabella's, was named in 2012 as a nod to the hotel's first publican, Emily Isabella Lucas.

It is also up for lease for $8000 a month.
