Very comfortable upmarket room and bed. Nicely decorated bathroom its a shame I did not have time to watch TV in the bath. Love that you can open the windows to get fresh air, also has good heating nice to have control of the temperature in the room. Also quiet was a Monday night, had great night sleep.

Stayed here whilst travelling business for third time in three years. Easy to park. Room is clean. handy having restaurant underneath. As they only have a small number of rooms, check in/out is very quick and efficient.

Stayed for our first wedding anniversary. The staff couldn't do enough for us helping organise a surprise dinner in our room with candles. Dinner was of the finest quality. Location is great, a short walk to the centre of nightlife activity.

Was extremely happy with everything staying at Oscars in Ballarat. We arrived very tired as we had worked that morning before leaving and upon arrival the lovely girl at reception took my suitcase upstairs for me and sent me a cup of coffee from the restaurant. We didnt want to leave and wished we could have stayed longer as the... More

Loved our recent stay! Spa room was divine, nice small hotel, seems to be quite a local hot spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nice meals with friendly service. Loved getting a free up grade to a better room! Legends 👍

The accommodation here is great, its a small hotel but very comfy. Great room service options, but also great restaurant downstairs. It is quite but still close to all restaurants and shopping - your right in the heart of Ballarat.

Rated 30/235 (4*) on Trip Advisor, this is a good restaurant with friendly and helpful service and good food reasonably priced; nothing fantastic, just good. (Linked to the Ballarat Premier Apartments, where we stayed, so qualified for 10% discount). Rating 7/10.

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
