A Grand Place to Stay
There’s so much to take in on the Bellarine, that sometimes a day trip alone will not do it justice. Why not make it a proper escape and stay in one of our newly refurbished 18 boutique rooms?
Our Portarlington Accommodation offering is modernised to meet the highest standards of luxury, while still enclosed in stunning historical architecture, there’s 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. Portarlington is a location you must put on your “to do” list and make sure it’s on your “to stay” list as well.
