At The Criterion Hotel, we offer guests our personal rendition of the modern Australian gastropub, with a patriotic emphasis on supporting local businesses, employing locals, and using local produce from our abundant Gippsland food bowl.

First opened in 1865, the historic venue has been a favourite of those throughout both the local surrounds and greater Victoria for over a century and a half.

We invite you to visit the Criterion Hotel in Sale. Where once is never enough....

Experience the best Gippsland has to offer at one of Victoria’s most revered destination hotels.
