The Border Inn Hotel - BUSINESS FOR SALE !


Due to the ongoing COVID situation in Melbourne & the border restrictions on the SA‚Äôs visiting Victoria, we have made the decision to temporarily close the doors @ The Border Inn. ūüėě

This will hopefully be a short term situation until it all improves for the hospitality industry & living life on the border.

We have been incredibly grateful to the local community for your massive support over the past year.

Another note of appreciation is to shout out to our staff, especially Tam & her great crew & of course Rob & Di. This has obviously been a very difficult time for us.

We look forward to ‚Äėherd immunity‚Äô & restrictions easing.

Thank you! ūüôŹ

“Rocked up to the Border Inn today for lunch with a friend, was greeted by a friendly face, set up with a table by the fire for myself and my friend who was bringing her newborn and a 2 year old. Straight up they had a high-chair, a colouring sheet, the Border Inn folks were warm, considerate and accommodating.
