Value for money and very generous portion sizes especially kids meals. Very quick, efficient and friendly service in a very funky renovated building. Obviously a. Dry popular meeting place with the locals and the courtyard looked very welcoming.

My wife and I were visiting Ballarat for a long weekend and wanted somewhere close to the railway station and the tourist attractions (Sovereign Hill, MADE, Ballarat Wildlife Park and the Botanic Gardens). It was in fact very central, walking distance to almost everything (if you like to walk). The room was small but comfortable. The breakfast at the restaurant...

Called in today and not all that busy. We ordered lunch , 3 salads that looked good on the menu as well as drinks. After waiting 3/4 of an hour we asked how much longer and the staff said another 15 mins. In total 1 hour was far to long for 3 simple salads so we left without eating. Really...

Hi Mick, Thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry you didn't have the experience you were expecting. I do appologise for the wait you experienced on that particular Sunday. It was a very busy day with several functions on which may not have been obvious. I do remember your order and the timing was unfortunate, coming in behind some large orders....

We really enjoyed our stay at Oscar's. Close proximately to town meant we could leave the car and walk. Comfortable room, very clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. We didn't try the restaurant this time, but would be happy to stay again and try it on another occasion.

The staff at Oscar's were friendly, helpful and accommodating. Although the room was not large its layout gave a feeling of spaciousness. The hotel is very well positioned and for us was in easy walking distance of everywhere we needed to go.

The room was amazing, the bathroom was second to none. The staff were very accommodating and highly efficient. Car park facilities were inadequate. Close to all local amenities - an easy walk to town.

We stayed for three nights and was pleasantly surprised by the comfortable room and great centralised location. Initially we were concerned re. street noise and music from nearby on the weekend but by midnight, the room becomes very quiet. The windows open out to a balcony which was nice for some fresh air. The king sized bed is extremely comfortable...
