The tavern is very close to where we live, so you might think we'd be biased, but it is a great place to get pizza and does a high quality restaurant service in the evenings which is just as good as if not better than a lot of 'fine dining' restaurants in Cairns - the chef and staff are friendly...

If you are worried about mobile phone reception, you shouldn't stay at Speewah Tavern. If brilliant starlight dazzles you, protect your eyesight and stay clear of this place. If the haunting call of the curlew sets your teeth on edge, you won't get a good night's sleep here. If a kookaburra alarm clock makes you wake with a frown, you... More

we stayed here for one night and really enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious, clean with good balcony and view. Our son enjoyed the swimming pool and beautiful grounds. We had a pleasant easy walk from our room to a lovely dinner at great prices. The staff were friendly and accomodating. I have no complaints except you couldnt get... More

We stayed here for one night after a function and were pleasantly surprised having never even driven into Speewah before. The grounds of the hotel are lovely and are home to some very tame curlews. There's a great sized swimming pool along with a petrol station/convenience store which is pretty well stocked. The pub has lots of country charm and... More

We stayed here and had dinner and it was a great recommendation by the Kuranda Visitor Info Centre. The rooms were basic but clean and well presented, the drinks at the pub were cheap and the meals were way beyond what we expected. I had an enormous plate of ribs and they were delicious. It was a quiet night and... More

Three of us called in to the Speewah Tavern today after completing the Glacier Rock walk from Speewah camping ground. It was great! The place is spotlessly clean and the food a real surprise. Two of us had delicious beef burgers made with the chef's own meat patties (that's right - not the bought in frozen variety!) and our friend... More

Worth the drive - good atmosphere, good food, good prices. Have come here in a group a few times and haven't been disappointed once. Staff are all really friendly, just a really feel-good place to be.
