Had Dinner there with group of work friends, good friendly service and the food was very tasty which is at a decent value, the meals came out quickly also, generally our drinks were sorted by the passing waiters and no issues with paying individually, overall a good night out.

Had a great weekend away at Oscar's. The service we received from every one of the staff we came in contact with was exceptional. Nothing was to much trouble and the attention to detail was spectacular. We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and both meals were fantastic. We spent a good couple of hours sitting in the cosy... More

Nothing to criticise. Just not extraordinary. Service was quick and staff pleasant. Just not rushing back. The ambience was a bit lacking.. More cafeteria than bistro. Kids welcome. A bigger selection of craft beer and wine wouldn't go astray.

We recently visited Oscars with another family and we're all very impressed. The decor was classy and comfortable, the service was helpful and attentive and the food was excellent. We turned up as a party of 8 and had not booked. The staff quickly put a couple of tables together and we were seated within a very short time. The... More

Ballarat is beautiful, and there is an abundance of great accommodation at good prices. Oscars is not one of them. $200 for an average room and ensuite. We were advised to park out the back and make our way to reception. Unfortunately, this means having to carry all your bags through a crowded restaurant to get to reception. Ballarat is... More

I have stayed at Oscars before but again was thrilled with my visit. I was away on business and it's the perfect spot for a relaxing night. The shower was amazing and even that alone won me over. The food is delicious and the staff are so friendly!

My husband and I have stayed at Oscars many times now. We have stayed in both a spa room (didn't use the spa but loved the space in the double shower) and the deluxe rooms with balcony. The beds are large, snug and comfy, the reverse cycle heating/cooling allows us to control the room temperature and we have had no... More

The room was small but this was fine for one night and all we needed. Their was a modern, well presented ensuite with the bedroom. The hotel is well located in the centre of Ballarat. We walked to...

My wife and I have been staying at Oscar's whenever we are in Ballarat. The rooms are modern and very comfortable. The Staff are always tremendous and the food excellent. An ideal location in the centre of the city but very quiet.
