We spent just one day at beautiful Oscars on the Yarra and loved every minute of our getaway. From the initial friendly email correspondence, to a slightly early check in to the best king room available (room 16 if you can get it) and an agreed late check out - our experience was first class all the way.
Oscars is perfectly positioned by the Yarra river on a quiet estate a few minutes drive from Warburton village. The property has been totally renovated recently to a very high standard. Our room, whilst compact, had a gorgeous view over the river from its private balcony. The king size bed was so comfortable, the decor of the room was modern and appealing, and the bathroom had a great deep bath (with shower over it) for a relaxing soak. Tea & coffee making in the room was welcome, as were the wine glasses which were put to good use. There is no fridge in the room though.
We dined at the on site restaurant and enjoyed our meals. It is a limited menu but fortunately had 2 fish options, as we do not eat meat, both were very good. We chose to take a cheese platter back to our room which was happily accommodated.
The included breakfast was very good but served too early for a weekend, breakfast stops at 9.30am. My scrambled eggs were delicious. Coffee is filter type individual sachets which you make yourself using the kettle, and was surprisingly good. In addition to a limited hot selection there was the usual continental selection of cereals, breads, pastries, yoghurt and fruit. We were more than satisfied.
We left Oscar's feeling totally relaxed and well nourished - but wished we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended to travellers from overseas and locals alike. We Aussies appreciated hearing the kookaburras' laughter and enjoying our Yarra river in such scenic surrounds.
