15 of us were away on a girls weekend & decided to hit up Portsea Pub. We got two tables next to each other in the sun- which was absolutely awesome! The only bad thing about this was the seagulls- & they were EVERYWHERE! The waiters were a bit slack with clearing tables, so the birds stuck around, eating off... More

Recently I met with a bunch of old army mates for a drink at what used to be 'our local' pub. Back in the day, the Portsea Hotel had an intimate country feel about it, even when it was crowded with the transient Summer population. The view over the water is still magnificent, but that welcoming ambience, that intimacy has... More

Self service - no customer service or anything friendly at all. Had to order and pay at the bar even though there were like 2 or 3 other small tables? When they came to clear the table at 9:25pm one person asked for ice cream and we were arrogantly told: 'do you know what time it is?' Um, kitchen is... More

My husband & I cruised down the Peninsula last Sunday for a relaxing lunch 'date' (we've been married nearly 30 years) at the Portsea Hotel followed by a walk on the beach in the sunshine. The outcome was a gorgeous walk on the beach but sadly the once iconic Portsea Hotel left us wanting....particularly in the area of meals &... More

Stayed here on a package that included bathe passes to Peninsula Hot Springs. The hotel had a very country feel about it but had everything I needed. Food & staff were excellent & all a stones throw from the beach.

Turned up on spec on a Monday night to find a board out the front advertising a mid-week standby rate of $99 incl continental breakfast - much better than anything on internet booking sites. Queen room with ensuite was average at best. Antique wardrobe had door that didn't close, so had to be wedged shut with a bag. The minibar... More

Hi, My wife and I had a terrible first night as a married couple. The Portsea Hotel was entirely unprepared for bridal couple arriving back late from their wedding function. During the day we asked a friend to drop off our bags and check into honeymoon suite. Our friend brought the bags to reception and "clarified that this was for... More

Went on 8th June for lunch. Great view but that's where it ended. Observed two waiting staff to be rude and abrupt, answering patrons back rudely when they asked politely about the delay in meals and muddling of some orders and table number. Some of the group waited over 2 hours. Food cold and overall not worth the wait. Bar... More
