IT was VERY disappointing. The bed was two singles pushed together NOT a KING BED! And the Spa room was a joke just a single bath with broken jets in normal size bathroom. Air conditioner didnt work and the room was small and hot nothing like the pics very good trick photography. No secure car park just park around back... More

Excellent food, service and fantastic rooms to stay. So close to everything you need. The food was suited to both of us and didn't have to eat anywhere else during our stay. The room was extremely clean. Free parking out the back was very convenient.

Dropped in for a hearty country lunch and we weren't disappointed. Even though they were busy the wait staff were welcoming and attentive, the food was great well worth a visit if your in Ballarat. Great range of drinks available they even have Bulmers cider on tap! Also has Accomodation on site.

If you plan to sleep while you are away DO NOT CHOOSE THIS ACCOMMODATION!!!!! Between the in-house music thumping and unsavory people on the street at all hours, it was VERY disappointing. The "double" bed as stated turned out to be two singles pushed together!!!! If you wish to enjoy wonderful cafe service and food by all means call in,... More

This has to be the worst hotel overall experience we've ever experienced. We planned to spend 3 relaxing nights in what was supposed to be one of Ballarat's nicer hotels- NOT! After travelling all of that day from London to visit with family for the holidays, we were informed upon check in that the hotel was not going to be... More

The room was nice and I liked the art deco aesthetic. All rooms are upstairs, and the staff helped me with my small bag. The location was good, but my view was the Target store which was a bit unfortunate as central Ballarat has so many spectacular buildings. The free wi-fi kept dropping out. My main concern was that this... More

My wife & I stayed at the hotel 6 nights. Arrived in Ballarat after 11pm and staff had stayed to meet us. Staff were always friendly and helpful.giving directions and arranging taxis. The restaurant/cafe was a pleasant place to dine with a good selection of fare. The beds were very comfortable. On a negative side thought value for money for... More

We stayed at Oscar's hotel for one night as we were in town to see a show. So close to everything! A quick walk to a pre-dinner drink then short stroll to dinner, and you guessed it, a stunted hop to the theatre... Check in was friendly and a breeze. Stayed in a beautiful spa room, and was a great... More

overall is was a terrific place to stay.Central location - good meals and helpful staff but due to the street noise I'd have to think about returning unless there are other rooms back from the main street.Loved the modern art-deco feel.
