Portsea Hotel's $7 million facelift - with yoga lessons on offer

Hospitality owner and Rich Lister Chris Morris is injecting $7 million into the Portsea Hotel on the Mornington Peninsula in a serious makeover which is set to be unveiled next week.

It sits within the Colonial Leisure Group’s $300 million tourism portfolio.

The Portsea Hotel was purchased in 2000.

“Portsea Hotel has been a great place to go in the warmer months and although it is seen as a Portsea icon, the charm had left the building some time ago,” Morris said.

Its getting more than just a lick of paint.

Morris hopes the renovations creat a mecca for families, couples, holidaymakers and tourists alike.

“We’ve utilised every space in the venue to truly realise its full potential.”

Known for its sprawling beer garden on the water's edge, Portsea Hotel will host a number of live music acts over summer.

Morning yoga will cater to the ever-growing active lifestyle enthusiasts.

The second floor is home to the ‘Bertram Bar’  (in honour of John Bertram) and with ocean views.

There is also Cliff’s Bar  - a California-inspired burger bar - and the RIP Bar  - a whisky inspired cocktail bar to lure guests in the cooler months.

Morris’ hospitality group owns some of Australia’s most iconic destinations and venues including Orpheus Island, Mount Mulligan, Print Hall in Perth and Half Moon in Brighton.

The group is also undertaking renovations on the popular Albert Park Hotel.

The revamped Portsea Hotel will open its doors to the public next Monday.
