Right in the heart of Ballarat with every facility at your fingertip. Harris Scarf next door & Target/Myer over the road. Lots of cafes etc close by but we ate in the hotel café and were very impressed. Managed to get off street parking as well. Great stay and will be returning as our daughter has just opened a business... More

Best beds ever ! Clean comfortable rooms. Staff were helpful and friendly , nothing too much trouble. Dining experience ( dinner and breakfast ) were amazing. Large menu with gluten free options - all meals 10/10. Stayed with 2 other couples who all rated it our favourite stay in 3 weeks of travel - Tanya

Excellent - last minute business trip. Phone booking made 3 hours before arriving at 11pm. Very comfortable, clean and accommodating room. Cafe downstairs - delicious. Will stay there again if required.

Never have these people failed in customer service and excellent coffee. The meals are excellent especially the salmon and the lemon tart. Always clean and great service. Their out door area is wonderful and I look forward to the new works being done .

Oscar's itself is a good place to stay. The rooms are well appointed, clean and tidy. We were 'upgraded' to a spa room for our two night stay...which happens to be right on top of a function downstairs. The music is so loud in our room it is reverberating through the floor and walls resulting in us needing to raise... More

Lovely place to stay - clean, comfortable, central and charming. Lovely, helpful staff. The restaurant downstairs is very convenient and great to get good coffee in the morning. Couldn't recommend Oscars more highly.

Fantastic meal while at a brilliantly catered for and serviced dinner meeting. Follow that with a great nights sleep in my well presented and appointed room and an awesome breakfast to finish my stay. I'll be back!!

We visited last minute and booked a room with a spa. We requested late check out last minute and the staff were very accommodating. The room itself was clean and modern. Definitely going to come back for a further visit!

It was dark, cold and wet when we arrived. A warm reception and adequate parking was well received. We had been upgraded to a front room which was much appreciated. The housekeeping staff were friendly and respectful as were those in the café/dining room. I have no complaints and will happily stay there again. I loved being right in town... More
