Our Oct 7th wedding a the Portsea Hotel was breathtaking and we enjoyed every moment of it. The staff were outstanding, all our guests were extremely impressed with their professionalism. They ensured that we did not have to worry about a thing, the ceremony and reception were set up beautifully, it was hassle free and they were more than happy to accommodate any request. We loved having our wedding at The Portsea Hotel, I wish we could relive it all again! One of the happiest days of our lives!

Amazing venue, terrific staff and incredible food. We had a cocktail style wedding but there was no shortage of food, but even better was how delicious the food was. The view and atmosphere from the deck is wonderful, I cannot recommend this venue highly enough.
