Portarlington Grand Hotel

Restaurant and Cafe

Built in 1888, the Portarlington Grand Hotel watches proudly over the main street of Portarlington and down to the popular and scenic harbour area.

Recapturing an era when paddle steamers traversed Port Phillip Bay, the historic yet newly refurbished Portarlington Grand Hotel offers a boutique experience with a local welcome for all.

Stay for a while, visit for a meal, and reunite with friends and family.

Choose your experience by eating and drinking in one of our four unique dining spaces. The Bistro and Front Bar feature a regional town atmosphere and some of the best local produce, and is the beating heart of the Portarlington Grand Hotel. The Atrium and Lawn are our newly designed open-air dining and drinks areas and are the perfect place to soak up the atmosphere, enjoy a seaside view and socialise.

Expect the classics that everyone loves to find at their local or step it up with cocktails and oysters if that’s your vibe.

Why not make it a proper escape and stay in one of the newly refurbished 18 boutique rooms?

Modernised to meet the highest standards of luxury, while still enclosed in stunning historical architecture, there are sure to be few experiences like it.

Travel direct from Melbourne via ferry, or enjoy a regional drive to a place where the country meets the sea.
