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.

I was only there for one night but in that time I was so well looked after. I had such a pleasant stay the room was so comfortable. Breakfast was included and was fantastic. Staff could not be friendlier! Location is perfect to the cultural district.

Beautiful comfy room, nice service, but got woken up at 3.30 by street sweepers, (main road frontage room), and subsequent noise kept me awake from then on. Perhaps double glazing on those front rooms would be helpful.

We attended a function downstairs in the hotel and were very happy with the accommodation. Staff were extremely accommodating and assisted with the little things like carrying our luggage upstairs, and allocated us a room not above the function due to us travelling with a baby who went to bed early. There was some street noise through the windows but... More

Arrived on sat 6th sep. Had booked rooms 1 and 6 which were executive rooms. On entering room 6 we were surprised to find the room smelling of a strong, unpleasant Odour coming from the bathroom. We informed the staff who let us change rooms to room 12 which was a deluxe room. In room 12 the power shower temperature... More

The only drawback for me being a light sleeper was the truck and car noise from the main road.My partner had no problems sleeping.I would try it again but in a rear... More
