As an important part of a touring trip along the Great Ocean Road, we have tried to combine comfort with simplicity with our accommodation. We have combined simple hotels with good bed and breakfast and this hostelry, Oscars, was not just good but wonderful. It is select and very spacious with enormous bedrooms and plush bathrooms and in our case, a walk in dressing room containing not only extensive hanging and storage space, but a drinks fridge in the wardrobe. Wi-fi Internet is free for clients (something these days I object to paying in hotels), and comfort is of the highest quality.
On our arrival, Judith, the manager, charmingly showed us everything about the premises, including how to make teas, coffees in the dining room with complementary shortcake biscuits of gigantuan size and taste. We took our tea on the fine terrace overlooking the estuary where boats are moored and a gate permits walks along the bank and over to the beach.
We were even given a selection of restaurants and menus to choose from and Judith kindly called and reserved a table for us.
Breakfast has a reputation, ours did not shrink from the expected high standard.
Really a wonderful overnight stay, we were disappointed not to be staying longer
