A Historical Gem

on Moorabool Street

Step Back in Time

with Ambergris Hotel’s Vintage Charm

As you step through our panelled oak doors, you’ll be greeted by the warm glow of our open fireplace and the luxurious Chesterfield lounge. Make your way to our bar, made from pressed black tin and polished hardwood, where you can treat yourself to a cocktail or ice-cold brew and a delicious counter meal. Our emerald-backed gantry and brass trim add an extra touch of elegance to the space.

For those seeking a more refined dining experience, make your way to one of our two intimate dining rooms, each with seating for up to 15 people.

Our secluded beer garden is also the perfect spot for a relaxed afternoon drink in the sunshine or a romantic dinner under the stars by the fire.

A Dream Come True:

Sommelier David Ellis’ Vision for Ambergris Hotel

In our kitchen, our talented chef Jackson Wilde creates a menu using the freshest local produce from the Bellarine Peninsula and beyond. From golden crisp croquettes filled with velvety béchamel enriched with Bellarine truffles to Western Plains pork belly and pippies in XO broth, there’s something for every taste.

We believe that our venue is more than just a restaurant – it’s a space where history, elegance, and great food come together to create a truly unforgettable experience. We can’t wait to welcome you to Ambergris Hotel and show you everything that we have to offer.
