Uninterrupted views of Port Phillip Bay and its serene location makes The Portsea Hotel one of Melbourne's finest waterfront wedding venues in Melbourne. From start to finish, couples can host their day overlooking the glorious sea views, and let their guests stay overnight in the 4-star boutique hotel accommodation.

Ceremonies at The Portsea Hotel are held on the lawn overlooking the gardens and the beach panorama. This setting invites guests to gaze out across the water as they await the arrival of the bride.

Eliminate the need for your guests to travel between your ceremony and wedding reception by holding both at our waterfront venue.

*The Hotel makes the most of its unique location with both reception rooms opening onto water views
*The Lnngshore Room is tastefully appointed and can host cocktail or seated receptions from 60 to 300 guests
*From the terrace you can take in the water views as you enjoy pre-dinner drinks and canapes  

The Bertrand Bar is located on the second level of the Portsea Hotel. By day you can enjoy the breathtaking views, at dusk the sunset and by night the alfresco style open walls allow you to gaze at the stars. 

Our award winning wedding coordinator is here to help you every step of the way so please feel free to call Nicole at the Hotel to set up an appointment to discuss dates, or to be shown through our venue.

This venue is absolutely beautiful on a nice day. The ceremony at the lawn and the reception space at the Bertrand bar are so dreamy both day and night. I would only recommend this venue to couples who have lots of time and patience during preparation of the wedding. Because it takes 3 weeks in general for the venue to reply emails. 2 months before my wedding, venue coordinator role changed 3 times… I can feel that the hotel management was very messy, and nobody really cares about money or your wedding or anything. I was quite chilled so it only bothered me a little… Generally speaking Its still a stunning venue to do weddings, the staff working on the wedding day were very nice and helpful.

We stayed at the Portsea Hotel for 2 nights. The rooms were stunningly beautiful, newly renovated. Staff is super friendly and very accommodating. Food was super good and the views to die for. Highly recommend.

The Portsea Hotel and its staff were AMAZING! From the front of house, event staff and management, the waiting staff to the cleaning ladies who looked after our room while we stayed there, everyone was super friendly and accommodating. Knowing how much the staff at the Portsea has been working since lockdowns and restrictions have been lifted and having the same issues as everyone with having not enough staff, we never felt it! Everything was just perfect, the assistance leading up and on the day, the food was delicious and all our guests were happy. Our Wedding day was pure perfection. The location of the Portsea Hotel with its views of the ocean is breathtaking. We highly recommend the Portsea Hotel and its team for any event. Thank you so much for making our day so special and unforgettable!
