“Under new management but still soaring with the eagles!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Another perfect stay with the family. We normally stay in a 2 bed luxury apt but this time tried a 2 bed ocean view apt - it was marginally smaller, but the second bedroom was better laid out and the 3 kids fitted perfectly. The new managers are very nice, helpful and have some good ideas on how to continue maintaining high standards whilst improving value for money. Proximity to the beach and Tedder Ave, spectacular views and consistent high quality of service drive the Oscar to the top of the list!

Room Tip: Go high for the views.

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago, after booking a 2 bedroom ocean view apartment online (super easy and great communication from Sonya). This weekend was a surprise birthday present for our brother and as we all used to live in Main Beach we knew the location was going to be perfect - close to the beach, Tedder Ave up the road, Southport Surf & Yacht Clubs close by, short walk to Marina Mirage and 2 minutes drive to check out Sea World!! The apartment had Beautiful views, clean, tidy and well maintained apartment and comfortably accommodated 4 adults. The facilities are great and we really enjoyed our stay - definitely would recommend to others!

booked online through wotif, usually when I have booked through wotif at different hotels we have been given a 1st story unit with limited views and so on, but we were on the 18th or 19th floor here with amazing views over the ocean! had the option of indoor and outdoor pools which is good seeing we there in early may. Everyone we dealt with during our stay were amazing, the receptionist was lovely and booked a dive for us, it was just a really good stay would recommend it to anyone!

My husband and teenage daughters recently stayed 3 nights at Oscar on Main. The apartment was large, clean and very comfortable. We had uniterrupted views from the balcony of the ocean and a short walk to the beach. Teddar Avenue is just around the corner where there are excellent restaurants. Walking tracks along the beach and Marina Mirage a short walk away with excellent shops.
Oscar on Main is a great location and is very well managed by Angela and her team.

My family of four stayed in a large and comfortable 2 bed apartment with great views from a large balcony. The area is quiet (ie not the busy part of the gold coast), close to a good restaurant strip and close to Sea World). It was clean, had good service and good facilities.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our beautiful apartments. My husband David and I are the new managers and we love livng here. You can't beat the location. A wander down Tedder Avenue for a coffee and some people watching - or along the beach - is a great way to unwind. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back next time.

I stayed at Oscar on Main in early april of 2013, with 3 friends. We were in a 2 bedroom, ocean view apartment, level 19. Was a great, uninterrupted view of the ocean from the balcony as there are no high rises hindering the view. Due to the weather we couldn't get to the beach more than once, but that gave us the opportunity to check out the outdoor pool, indoor heated pool, spa, and steam room. These facilities were so great - very clean, and obviously well maintained. The steam room was a particular favourite. The staff there were lovely, very accommodating and helpful. The location is fantastic. Only a short walk to Tedder Avenue where there are a range of clothing boutiques, cafes and restaurants. An even shorter walk to the beach. The bedrooms were large - in one we even had an extra couch and TV, and in the other a work desk. There were 2 bathrooms, both large and very clean and modern. the larger bathroom has two basins, a shower, toilet and spa bath which was luxurious. The living room felt enormous. There was a large couch, large TV that had a decent sound system, DVD player. The kitchen was well equipped, and had more than we needed. I highly recommend this hotel, it would be great for business, families, friends and couples.

As the new team from the beginning of April, it was very gratifying to read your comments about our service. David, Sonya and myself have been working very hard to learn everything we can about the building to make sure our guests are looked after extremely well.
We have got lots of comments about the size of the apartments - because they are enormous - and give guests plenty of space to spread out and relax together - but not on top of each other. When we found Oscar on Main, we fell in love with the size and layout of the apartments. Coupled with the beach and Tedder Avenue, only a block away, we felt it was a perfect place for us to live and our guests to unwind. We look forward to your return visit.

Stayed for four night in March 2013 in a one bedroom ocean view (although it was a two bedroom with the other bedroom/bathroom closed off) on the 9th floor.
Apartment was very comfortable with a great view of the ocean. Had all the facilities you would expect including two pools, tennis court and gym. Apartments are self catering and are not serviced daily. Good kitchen with all you need for a comfortable stay. The Apartment we were given was in good repair and had an up-market feel with good furnishings. The only thing I would have liked was a queen bed rather than just a double which is a bit short for me.

Position was also excellent with a short stroll to Tedder Ave restaurants and slightly longer to the beach.

Manager and receptionist very friendly and helpful. An excellent choice for the Gold Coast and Main Beach is, in my opinion, much nicer than the more seedier Surfers Paradise area. Would definitely stay there again.

Thank you for your review and feedback. We do not have any apartments with a double bed in the master bedroom anymore so you will not encounter that issue again. In fact, many apartments have upgraded to a king size bed so you will have more than enough room to stretch out and relax.
Make sure when you come back to let us know you have stayed before so we can give you a return guest rate to thank you for your loyalty.
