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

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.

Stayed here due to normal place I stay being full. Centrally located with bar and restaurant. Room was a little small but comfortable enough. Only minor things that caused disappointment. Digital TV in room only worked on certain channels. Noise from downstairs travelled through. Sink area was small resulting in no space for toiletries. Had a nice evening meal in... More

We went to Ballarat on the spare of the moment and booked this hotel the day prior to arriving. The reason for choosing the hotel was it's location and onsite parking. We also booked ourselves in for dinner, and thank goodness we did as there was very little open in Ballarat on Monday night. The meal was generous and delicious;... More

Stayed at oscars when going to a show at her majestys theatre. Picked this hotel as close to theatre, 5 min walk away. Dinner at cafe was lovely and reasonably priced. Room was well appointed and bed very comfy. As per other reviews the noise from a function being held was quite loud but didn't stop me sleeping well. Staff... More
