The Portarlington Grand Hotel has been one of Port Phillip Bay’s popular destinations since 1888. Now refitted to the highest of modern standards, it is set to recapture its former glory. 


The newly refurbished Portarlington Grand Hotel on the Bellarine Peninsula was envisaged as the perfect seaside retreat.

Preserving our state’s and the Bellarine’s grand history while offering a welcoming environment has always been our central goal.

The theme of duality persists in the identity of the building: new and old, land and sea, city and country.

It’s a place for locals to gather and celebrate, and invite their visiting friends and family to.

Travellers to the region will find a sample of the Bellarine’s best produce at the hotel and from there can explore the region and all it has to offer before returning to the comfort of the hotel.

Travelling to the hotel by ferry, as our forebears once did, will be sure to evoke historical wonder and make for a unique and memorable escape.

With thanks to Paul Little AO, Chairman and Founder of the Little Group, the history of grand getaways and transport across Port Phillip Bay will continue for many years to come.
