Celebrations at the Grand

Whether you’re celebrating a milestone birthday, anniversary or catching up with loved ones, the Portarlington Grand Hotel has the perfect space for your function.

Celebrate life’s special moments in Grand Style

It is important to celebrate the milestones in life. Birthdays, engagements, promotions, they are all once in a lifetime occasions. Now, more than ever, it is vital to make the most of the time we can chat, laugh and congratulate our friends and family. From the moment you step inside to celebrate, we are celebrating with you.

With four function areas to choose from, if you want to go grand or keep it quiet and intimate, we have the space for you.

Be the first to know when we are open for functions

The Portarlington Grand Hotel is the jewel of the Bellarine Peninsula offering a contemporary location for locals & visitors to come together and celebrate.

We’d love to learn about your celebration and help make your event a success.

We are very close to reopening the Bistro and Front Bar spaces. We will not be taking function bookings for June or July, just to allow us some time to settle into the new spaces.
