Delightful B&B in wonderful old building beside the water. V good rooms. Nice cooked breakfast. Not staffed after 5.30pm, not really a boutique hotel, but v nice all the same. 4-5 stars as a B&B; 3 stars as a boutique hotel.

Oscar's is really a top flight bed and breakfast rather than a 'boutique hotel' but none the worse for that. Very comfortable rooms, good breakfast options in pleasant riverside room with verandah. Very well-located for town and seaside walking. Helpful staff (e.g. to book a restaurant) present through office hours. No lift but very steep stairs to first floor room... More

Wonderful, and slightly grand yet very welcoming, this hotel gave us exactly the relaxed and luxurious break we were looking for. Enormous room with a large bathroom including a double shower, river views, and a super comfortable bed. The breakfasts were as good as any we would have paid for at a local coffee shop (better probably), and the daily... More

As the old saying goes . . . you get what you pay for. This place isn't the cheapest place in town but it must be one of the best. Just think up the superlatives and they are bound to apply to this place. For a start, it's in a great location - right on the river and within easy... More

As part of an extensive adventure in over 6 weeks of discovering Australia we had 10 nights driving The Great Ocean Road and staying at Oscars was by far the best accomodation on that part of the trip... We did try for at least 3 nights but not surprisingly they get booked up 2 years in advance !! The French... More

Fantastic, picturesque setting. Lovely, comfortable rooms. Big shower with Molton Brown products. Fantastic breakfast overlooking the river. Not cheap, but so worth it to stay in this amazing, character building!

What an amazing house - very "Homes and Gardens" situated right on the river waterfront, and within easy walk of main town. Enormous bedroom, and huge bathroom with double shower, furnished to a very high standard. Beautiful lounge downstairs, with gas fire, coffee table books, comfy sofas and help yourself coffees/teas and crumbly shortbread. Also an outside veranda on the... More

Bit wacky however nice rooms, great location, top breakfast - would recommend. Beautiful setting close to the town centre - room over looking the river was top quality. Super service - something larger hotel could learn from!!!

This fabulous boutique style hotel is set by the harbour on the Moyne River with access directly out the back onto the boardwalk. The hotel is truly lovely, full of charm and style. It is set in what was once a private residence and boy, what a home that must have been. We had originally hoped to have a room... More

We stayed for just one night while one our journey from Adelaide to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road. The B&B is in a lovely setting and we had a room overlooking the river. Beds are very comfortable and the breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. My only (small) complaint would be that they do not provide a bottle... More
