theportseahotel - Welcome
The Portsea Hotel is an award winning reception venue situated approximately 100km south of Melbourne, on the Mornington Peninsula. Located on the Portsea Front Beach, the Portsea Hotel is one of the most naturally beautiful and picturesque venues in Australia.
Ceremonies at the Portsea Hotel are held on the north facing terrace and the lawn leading out to the gardens, with the beach panorama providing an exquisite backdrop for your special moments. With the beach a mere 22 steps from the tranquil gardens, there are boundless opportunities to capture unique photographs on the sand and by the historic pier. The idyllic location simply guarantees that your wedding pictures will be a truly remarkable record of your treasured memories.

There are three tastefully appointed reception areas at the Portsea Hotel that can accommodate both seated and cocktail receptions from an intimate group to larger numbers. What sets us apart from other venues is that our two larger reception areas The Nepean Room and The Portsea Deck both have magnificent waterfront views. The details of each room are provided in our “Reception Rooms” page found on the left hand menu.
The Portsea Hotel has an excellent reputation for both sophisticated a la carte dining and contemporary cuisine. Whether you prefer a casual cocktail style reception or a more formal seated function, we have both the experience and facilities to cater for your specific needs. The Hotel has extensive kitchens that cater to visitors every day of the year and our Executive Chef has lead culinary teams at some of Melbourne’s best known and well regarded restaurants. His highly accomplished team of dedicated staff are on hand at every wedding to prepare your chosen menu to the highest standard.
Your family and friends will thank you for choosing the Portsea Hotel as they can attend your ceremony and then relax either in the cosy Hotel Lounge or in the Beer Garden where they can watch all the action in and on the water. When your reception is ready to commence, your guests can simply stroll into the function area, ensuring that nobody misses a minute of the celebrations.
Following your reception, guests can choose to keep the party alive by enjoying a drink in one of the Hotel’s bars or retire to one of the 26 accommodation rooms located on the second floor of the Hotel. Either way, the Portsea Hotel provides a stress free experience for everyone with no unnecessary travel from the beginning to the end of your special day.
Children are made to feel welcome at the Portsea Hotel. With a special Children’s menu and pricing, you can afford to invite the little ones. Each child can choose their favourite meal early in the night, before they take to the crayons and their souvenir Portsea Hotel colouring book.
