We have stayed at Oscars many times, maybe 6 or 7 times and we wouldn't think of going anywhere else. The apartments are big with great views of Surfers Paradise and in such a good location. With good restaurants and shops along Tedder Ave, Oscars on Main is a very good choice for your next Surfers Paradise holiday.

We recently stayed 9 nights at Oscar on Main and our apartment was lovely. Extremely clean and tidy and very well presented. The apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and had one of the best equiped kitchens we have ever had when staying in self-contained accommodation. Within a short walk is the beach, cafes and the tram... More

We had stayed at Oscars before and the next time we were treated very badly and stayed elsewhere. It is now under new management and this has made a huge difference. Stayed twelve days and enjoyed the stay very much we did have a few hiccups but these were very minor and attended to with out fuss the unit was... More

Wonderful spacious apartments with uninterrupted views of the ocean and beach because of a caravan park directly in front. We have not had any problems with noise even during busy periods. Our third visit was during Christmas 2014. This will be our go to place for the Gold Coast when we visit family who live nearby. In selecting and booking... More

Travelled with our three children and the location was just fantastic...short walk to the beach, liquor outlets, Subway and cafes. The view from the large balcony was exactly what a beach holiday is about. The positives of the apartment were large-sized rooms, comfortable beds, clean furnishings and air conditioning. My only gripe would be that we were given only two... More

We were really impressed by our stay. We just missed out on a luxury room (there are only 3). We got a 2 bedroom apartment it was great. We are a family of 5 - 3 young kids (7, 5 & 3.5) and there was plenty of space. Great balcony - lots of room. we couldn't have asked for more... More

Would have been nice to have free fresh towels when necessary and also complimentary shower gel and soap on demand. Carpets could have used a deep steam clean and/or replacement. Still maintains a very late 80s early 90s feel. Great location outside the hustle and bustle of surfers. Very nice run from main beach to surfers.

Sorry to read our comments about the carpet. All carpets were deep steam cleaned by professionals in early December before peak season. I do wish you had brought it to our attention at the time as I do not know which apartment you stayed in so I could inspect and rectify the situation. You will find that when you book... More

Exceptional is what you would expect with an Oscar and that is what we got. We arrived outside office hours and the arrangements made in advance for access was hassle free and convenient. Our very large apartment on the 20th floor overlooking the ocean, large balcony for breakfast in the beautiful sun - amazing. Superior granite kitchen was a pure... More
