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

We stayed here one night. The house is beautiful - right on the river with a wonderful veranda and steps to the boardwalk. Our room was huge, as was our bathroom. The service was friendly and breakfast was excellent.

An absolutely lovely 19th century (I guess) house next to the water in Port Fairy. The rooms are spacious with large bathrooms. Addition of a desk and chair would have helped. There is no dinner service and drinks are only available up to 6.30pm as the owning couple go home. This is a pity as Port Fairy is not blessed... More

We stayed just the one night on our journey from Melbourne to Adelaide on The Great Ocean Road and Oscars was the best B&B we stayed in during the trip. Our River front Room was just that with views across the river and the small leisure craft moored there. The room was spacious with a king sized bed and bathroom... More
