So so comfy bed, brilliant shower/bathroom in a studio room. Enough room for one night, excellent location with off street parking. Staff were great, even though service at dinner was a little patchy, but generally staff overall were excellent. Roadworks/footpath right at the front of the building was an inconvenience mainly for the hotel staff, and there were apologies to us for the workmen starting at 7.00am. Not the fault at all of the hotel, and not really an issue. Would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to or through this lovely city.

Beautifully renovated. Off street parking. Staff could not have been more helpful. Carried our bags upstairs and out to car the next morning. Even though Café was about to close they kept it open for us for evening meal as we were Hotel guests. Very comfy, clean spacious room with balcony in central Ballarat.

Room Tip: Stairs only to access rooms, no lift but only two storey. My friend with hip problem found this difficult after a long day driving. Most rooms have a balcony.

Stayed here with my daughter on Saturday night as we were attending an event in the area.
The room was lovely, a good size and beds were very comfy. The decor was nice and the bathroom was awesome.

We could not eat in the restaurant as it was booked out so we ordered from the menu and had it delivered to our room.

My only issue was the constant banging of doors in the corridor caused by other guests - the doors do not have a soft close and we were woken every so often by the doors being slammed shut. I am not sure if the doors don't close easily and therefore require slamming or the other guests were just oblivious to their noise.

All the staff were very pleasant and professional with off street parking to the rear of the building down a side laneway.

Overall I really enjoyed staying here - it was clean, comfortable, lovely decor and very pleasant staff.

WE stayed the night last week at Oscars and were very happy with the service the food and the wine. Great people keen to help at all times and we loved the wine. I could recommend this place to anyone who is travelling through or just interested in a lovely historic town Ballarat.

Very good all round experience. Experienced high quality service from the moment I set foot into the establishment. Good food and smart comfortable accommodation. I will book to stay at Oscar's next time I go to Ballarat.
