We stayed for one night just before christmas. The room was very good, although the shower felt like you were going into a cupboard. Breakfast was good, but the hotel was shutting that day for the christmas break so they seemed to want the guests to leave as quickly as possible. Lovely gardens and a great location on the waterfront.

We've stayed at Oscars several times in the past few years and always loved it. The position on the Moyne river is perfect and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Port Fairy is a gem of a town and this ha definitely one of the best places to stay. Lovely breakfast in the mornings too.

Our river view room was a bit overpriced and undersized......the king bed left little room to maneuver. However, this is a lovely spot with spacious common rooms and out-of this world breakfasts included. There is an excellent 2 mile island walk in one direction and, in another direction, there is a long, flat beach walk along a bay. Many good... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during a tour along the Gt Ocean Road in November, pre-booked from UK through Trailfinders. It was unquestionably the best place we stayed in Australia in this or 2 previous visits. I'd be tempted to agree that it is a B&B rather than a true boutique hotel (no restaurant) but of a fabulous standard.... More

We stayed just for one night (unfortunately). The staff is very friendly and nothing is too much for them. They reserved a table for dinner in a good Italian restaurant. Our room was spacious and very clean, as was the bathroom. Our bed was comfortably and slept very well. The cooked breakfast was delicous, the best we had during our... More

This is a special place to stay. Give yourself the time to enjoy it. The building is beautiful and service friendly and professional. Sitting in the lounge room enjoying a pre dinner drink was essential. Breakfast delicious and the walk along the adjacent jetty another highlight. We almost didn't stay following the two poor reviews on TripAdvisor, it wasn't pretentious... More

I agree with those who think that this is a high priced, and not very good, B&B rather than an upmarket boutique hotel. Moreover, the owners are not interested in any feedback. We stayed there over two weeks ago and when we left I sent a detailed email with what I indicated was intended to be constructive criticism since I... More

Tend to agree with other reviews that Oscar's is no more than a high end B&B that takes full advantage of its undeniable prime location in Port Fairy. In simple terms a property with a few rooms, no dining facilties only offering you a room to sleep in over night and breakfast, this in its self must surey categorise this... More

From the outside it maybe doesn't look very impressive as it is situated in a residential street but once you enter the premises you will be really amazed. We stayed in one of the Courtyard Suites which consisted of a large comfortable lounge with an electric log effect fire, warm and cold air conditioning, and a large bedroom with ensuite... More

My wife and I stayed one night and thought this was a great hotel. The location is good as the main part of Port Fairy is a short walk away and the hotel also faces a waterway where you can walk to the beach or along the waterway. The host was friiendly and helpful about the area. Our room was... More
