From the moment I checked in, the lovely young girl was very attentive and even moved me to a room with a large terrace, no problems whatsoever. Lovely heritage building with a lovely appointed room and beautiful bathroom. Great bar and food in the downstairs bistro. I shall be back to Oscars on my next work trip.

Room was small, but bed very comfortable.Shower hot. had all the basics. Location was good, and breakfast and lunch on site enjoyable. Coffee good as well. Service good as well. However one improvement is that there is no bench space at all in the bathroom

We stayed for two nights and were pleased to find that all of the positive comments we had read were correct. Staff were friendly, obliging and polite. Room very clean. Bed very comfy. Spa a good size for two people. Great shower. Room quiet. Value for money. Would definitely stay again.

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
