We arrived at Oscars after the long drive from Apollo Bay and received a delightful welcome. Tea and biscuits were offered on the verandah where we sat and enjoyed the view over the river and moorings. The house is stylishly furnished with a guest sitting room and dining room on the ground floor, plus the aforementioned verandah. When we visited, the rooms were filled with vases of highly scented roses from the garden. Our bedroom overlooked the river, was comfortable, quiet and had a reasonably large shower-room. Our hostess was extremely helpful with recommendations for an evening meal in Port Fairy and made the reservation on our behalf. She also gave us directions for a lovely walk a long the beach and back via the river. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
However, I do agree that the 'For Sale' sign was off-putting and the owner would do well to adopt a more discreet approach. In addition, the establishment is a Bed and Breakfast, not a boutique hotel, which might explain why guests expectations are not met when it comes to check-in times.
