Scott Reinke surveys the newly refurbished Clermont Hotel Motel. INSET: A huge barbecue was installed as part of the pub’s facelift.

A $320,000 facelift has delivered Clermont a new experience at an old favourite address - 30 Herschel St.

The Clermont Hotel Motel, fresh from a full-body makeover that included the installation of a huge outdoor barbecue, is open for business and on the market.

Manager Scott Reinke said the pub's owner, CQ Accommodation Services, contracted to Carabella Resources, had taken a strategic change of direction and listed the establishment as an investment opportunity in Clermont.

"Look, if I had the money, I'd buy it," Mr Reinke said with a laugh.

"Unfortunately I don't (have the money) but it's a great venue and all the foundations are there."

Patrons to the favoured watering hole now enjoy a panoramic view from their bar stool, with the fridges now gone from the centre of the main bar.

All the usual favoured brews flow from the newly installed and upgraded glycol beer systems, and the wine cellar has been deepened and the drop selection increased.

But the highlight is the outdoor entertaining area which centres on the brand new barbecue.

"Basically we're focusing on family and friendly dining," Mr Reinke said.

"We've recently installed CCTV footage so it's a very safe venue."
