Perfect for a short stay in Ballarat. Room was very comfortable and clean and I loved the opening window in the bathroom - meant there was no need to use the air conditioning. Enjoyed dinner and lunch at the Cafe.

booking online easy,confirmation quick. The room was great,large clean and comfortable plus the added advantage of being able to obtain a meal onsite is handy. I wouldn't look anywhere else for accommodation in the future.

The food and wine menu is great and breakfast, lunch and evening meals are always beautiful. Oscars is in central Ballarat in a great location. The staff are friendly and very obliging. Great value for money

A beautiful small boutique hotel conveniently located. Lots of parking at the back of the house. Restaurant was very good for both dinner and breakfast. Note, breakfast is a la carte - not buffet style, which was a little surprise for us. But all dishes were very tasty and well presented. Room was nicely appointed, with a beautiful bathroom and...

Overall my several stays here have been great. Lovely service,clean rooms & wonderful food & drink. My only regret is there is not a lift available for us older clients with arthritic knees. Would stay here any time I am in Ballarat.

After a long flight from Perth, I caught the shuttle bus back to Ballarat. After dragging my bag up and down a few streets, I booked in at Oscars due to my connecting ride coming to Ballarat the next day. What a relief, the room was very comfortable, spa bath very relaxing and dinner at the hotel was also excellent.... More

The staff are welcoming and helpful, the cuisine fresh and modern and the courtyard offers el fresco dining in a private relaxing setting. Having stayed here twice, we look forward to our next relaxing getaway and highly recommend Oscars to anyone looking for... More

What a great place to stay, the location is perfect for a quiet escape, or a shopping get away. The rooms were comfortable (we did get the spa room) and it was beautiful, king bed to sleep was great and the food was amazing also, we ordered room service for dinner and a breaky before we left, and OMG yummmm...
