Stayed here with my daughter on Saturday night as we were attending an event in the area. The room was lovely, a good size and beds were very comfy. The decor was nice and the bathroom was awesome. We could not eat in the restaurant as it was booked out so we ordered from the menu and had it delivered... More

WE stayed the night last week at Oscars and were very happy with the service the food and the wine. Great people keen to help at all times and we loved the wine. I could recommend this place to anyone who is travelling through or just interested in a lovely historic town Ballarat.

My fiance and I travelled to Ballarat for a friends wedding along with another couple. We chose this hotel as it was centrally located to shopping and restaurants which was handy for us as we did not have a car. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the train station which was very convenient. Check in was quick and... More

The hotel is in a great location and you can walk to some great restaurants and landmarks really easily. The room was really clean and bed comfortable. There was a constant and irritating banging noise through out the evening and I assume it was coming from the closely located kitchen/bar. Overall the hotel is a little bit tired in some... More

From the reviews l read this hotel didn't quite live up to my expectations. Great building, modernised well. Parking at the rear is great, bit of a challenge carrying bags through the restaurant. Service on arrival was good. Room 9 was tiny, just room for the bed and a desk. It did have a good ensuite although the toilet kept... More

Lovely hotel with king size bed and well appointed ensuite. I stayed in a studio which would be fine for 2 people. The food in the restaurant was divine - I can highly recommend dessert. Staff were lovely and the only fault is there is no ground floor accommodation but there is porterage if you need assistance. Would definitely book... More

Beyond a doubt, this hotel is the finest hotel Ballarat has to offer! From the moment I stepped into the warm and cosy reception, I was treated like royalty. The room was huge and with more luxury than I could imagine possible for the price (TV in spa)! With traveling a common routine in my line of work, I come... More

Centrally located; easy access / walking distance to all amenities. Administration needs attention: Rang to confirm booking - Person who answered the phone (man) had absolutely no clues who to handle my simple call! I booked for a queen bed for me and my partner, but was given a room with 2 single beds! Room was overlooking the courtyard; was... More
