i don't understand why they don't have good Mornington Peninsula Wine when we live on the Peninsula that has the best Wines please stock good wine. Went for a drink in the back bar to find it was like going into a child care centre not the place to take your kids

We lunched here late on a Monday. There was only a handful of diners already seated and it took sometime before our arrival was acknowledged. We ended up choosing a table and settling in before John, the only person working the dining room, came over and apologised before taking our drink orders. Understandably he can't be serving/greeting/mixing drinks all at... More

Being local we have dined here a few times, and the food has always been very good. The let down is the haphazard service. No one seems to take responsibility for your table - when you do catch a waiters attention they seem surprised you asked them. Follow up after dishes are delivered eg to get another drink or to...

We stopped for lunch today. Young staff, doing a good job. Had the lunch special, $29 for 2 courses and a glass of wine. Tasty pate and skinny baguette, yum. Then really good barra and chips. Great view and I'm in awe of the beautiful dining room. Large, French provincial style, with polished copper pots and dressers of white crockery.... More

Been there for lunch on a sunday. Food is very classic but of very good quality. Fish is fresh and the "fish and chips" we have for the children was excellent. Nice staff, excellent position, enough parking. Prices a little bit high Worth to come back anyhow

This is a very good hotel and has been beautifully restored. The food is above average pub food, tasty and well presented . The service is friendly and competent. Of the hotels in Mornington this is probably the best located overlooking the water, with ample parking and above average hotel food. I have been here a few times and will... More

A lunch stop at this Hotel for Lunch proved to be a great move. Hotel is situated opposite the Bay and is geared for quality diners. Plentiful outdoor seating is available as well as inside and verandah. We were seated at a table near a window and were served with a plentiful wine list and a lunch time menu. All... More

A fabulous location opposite the bay - beautiful views and a lovely historic pub that has been lovingly restored. Great vibe, loved our room with its balcony and the beer garden and bistro had great service and good food. A great spot for a getaway!

Exploring the area and found the Hotel on a busy market day Wednesday. The atmosphere, food and service were excellent. I only wish this place was local to us, it'd be a regular haunt. Cannot fault anything in the dining experience we had.

We regularly eat at the Grand Hotel and have not had a bad experience. Amazing location, friendly service. Have also stayed overnight one night - room was spacious and comfortable, with a great private balcony and view.
