Stay At The Grand

Turn a perfect day trip into the perfect getaway by staying in one of our boutique rooms, and explore the Bellarine, before returning to true comfort at the Portarlington Grand Hotel.

Portarlington Accommodation
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.

Currently taking bookings from August 1. 2022, and onwards.
