Oscars Waterfront Boutique Hotel
Ranked #2 of 11 Hotels in Port Fairy
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

The location and the facility itself are stunning, the hotel is by the river with direct access to a riverside walk and not far from the beach.
The lounge and breakfast room are spotless and very welcoming, plus we got upgraded to the courtyard suite as honeymooners, a very spacious and pampering accommodation.
Only a couple of points - no wireless available in the suite as it seems it was pointed out in other reviews but when mentioned the owner was surprised it was the case. Also, breakfast was nice with homemade fantastic granola yet the offer quite limited especially if you want a sweet non cooked breakfast and something other then tea or American coffee to drink.

We stayed in a river view room (staircase access only to second floor) that certainly lives up to the description. Spacious room, very comfortable and attractively furnished. Ensuite bathroom. Large communal lounge downstairs, with complementary tea/coffee and those delicious shortbread biscuits available throughout the day. Excellent breakfast, fresh and tasty: Home made muesli and a selection of hot dishes a la carte. Brilliant.

Room Tip: Choose the river view rooms and Enjoy!

I wish i could live here. Food, service, house, our room, location - a-m-a-z-i-n-g!! It is worth the expense without doubt. The owner recommended a fantastic restaurant (L'Edera) to us and booked it for us (and got us a discount!). She also makes the best breakfasts and home-made biscuits for the tea and coffee in your room. Just wow. Would absolutely recommend.

We stopped here for 2 nights as we completed our tour of the Great Ocean Road. (Incidentally you have to come many miles away from the coast to get to Port Fairy past the delights(!) of Warrnambool so be prepared) Oscars is a wonderful spot on the waterfront in what is a quiet little town. The room we had was at the front of the building with gorgeous views over the boats on the river. Breakfast was also very good with a few welcome twists on the normal offerings.

Room Tip: The Waterfront room is probably the best in the building

I decided to stay at Oscars based on online feedback and the quality of the images on the website. I was incredibly impressed with everything about Oscars - the welcome, the quality of the rooms, the little extras and the breakfast. I travel every week and Oscars is the loveliest place I have stayed in a long time.

The waterfront setting is fantastic.

It is perfect for short or long stay. I only wish I had stayed longer. Great value.

The website is true to reality.

We stayed at quite a few b&b's and hotels as we travelled around in Australia, but Oscar's stood out. The waterside location was special and the interior was classy and comfortable. The tea and coffee in the lounge, with home baked biscuits, were a real treat, and the breakfast was fabulous. We only stayed the one night but I wish we could have stayed longer.

This is a stylish boutique hotel. The rooms are large with a view over the river. The reception was warm and efficient. Breakfast was excellent and included.
