Oscar On Main
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 13, 2011

No problem checking in an hour earlier, I think this was due to renovations in the main foyer which we were not advised of and there was no sign post to alternate access. No hair dryer in apartment and after a few minutes a new one was delivered.
Very clean throughout, with a spacious lounge/dining, big balcony, Hard to get to sleep with the bed being quite firm - woke up rested which I was surprised at with the firm bed.
This was a long weekend away for my husband and I to relax, be away from the rat race which we were able to do here. Great location we had full on ocean views, short walk to beach and Tedder Ave cafes.

Room Tip: Ask for a mid level apartment, quiet with great views

We were travelling with young children, 18 months & 4 year old.
This is a great hotel in a fabulous location.
Mary on the front desk was very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.
Our room in the 16th floor was incredibly spacious. The beds were super comfortable.
The apartment had amazing views out to the ocean. It was very clean.
Oscar on Main is located in a great position. It is really quiet, but very handy to good cafes, a couple of playgrounds and the beach. Just perfect for us.

Oscars is a hotel run by people who seem happy in their work - helpful and friendly without being intrusive. We went in Winter and were hoping for, in order of importance - an ocean view, comfort, good cooking facilities and quiet. We were not so concerned with restaurants as we wanted to enjoy cooking with the abundant fresh seafood in the area. It was perfect, a warm, sunny, quiet and romantic escape. Here are the things we loved most about the apartment - the best thing - the ocean view, from lounge, main bedroom and hinterland view from other bedroom and kitchen. Two areas to sun ourselves in - if it was windy out the front there was another little balcony along the side that was out of the wind and fantastic for reading and dreaming. Thick carpet in the living and bedroom areas - so much nicer than cold hard tiles which seem to be popular in beach apartments, spacious ensuite with spa bath and the king size bed was very comfortable - lots of extra pillows too. Great cooking equipment - no aluminium pans, plenty of cookware and glasses and there was even a whisk and quality appliances. Quiet, no street noise or noises from other guests. Great TV, big lounge and plenty of space in the living area to give that feeling of luxury and comfort. We didn't use the pool or the gym but went for plenty of long walks on the beach out the front. I don't know if it is a lot noisier in Summer but for our stay it was blissfully quiet - I don't think we have ever relaxed quite so effectively on any other holiday. Things that we will take in to consideration next time are that there is no good deli close by and no place to rent or buy a DVD anywhere that we could find but as far as the hotel goes, it is a winner. Perfect for couples wanting a quiet getaway or families. Not so good for people looking for exciting night life.

Oscar on Main was an amazing experience. The rooms were beautiful, modern and very spacious with the added ocean views - nothing short of spectacular. We found the staff very friendly and we were well looked after any time of the day. The location was very convenient just a short walk to local cafes and restaurants and major shopping centres only 5 mins drive. This property is very competitive and went far beyond our expectations. Thank you to Carl and the staff at Oscar on Main!

We stayed at Oscar on Main for a week in June. We booked a luxury 2 bedroom apartment & we were very happy when we arrived. On the 26th floor we had amazing views, absolutely stunning. The location, just off Tedder Avenue, is great. Many cafes, restaurants & shops just a 2 minute walk away. The apartment was very nice & comfy, with 2 large bedrooms. The kitchen was very well epuipped with everything you would need. The balcony had table & chairs & a sun lounger. I loved sitting out to watch the sunrise & sunset! Would definately stay there again.

Booked in to have a quiet few days after a very stressful year.
The welcome was very warm with an early check in as requested. I was given a brief but comprehensive rundown of the facilities with the offer to contact the front desk made if there was anything else I needed.
The room was clean with amazing ocean views and everything that I could possibly have needed. Oscars is very central to all the services that you could need as well as close to the beach for long lazy walks.

We've stayed many times over the years at Surfers Paradise. Everything advertised is usually 'hit & miss', but Oscar On Main took us by surprise. The apartment we chose was really well appointed complete with separate kitchen, laundry and walk-in robe. Both the lounge and main bedroom had doors that opened onto the balcony that faced the main beach. The bed was very comfortable and the visual outlook was a delight.
