Oscar's on the Yarra

Reviewed 23 March 2014

I surprised my husband with a weekend away as a present for his birthday. Located an easy ride from Melbourne we found this quaint well appointed haven. This boutique country hotel does not disappoint. The owner an Italian gentleman could not do enough for us and made our experience so memorable. The rooms, lounges, as well as the restaurant are all homely and well appointed. We dined in on the Saturday night. This was definitely the highlight of the weekend. Service was excellent and the food brilliant. I would go as far as to say one of the best meals we have ever had at reasonable prices. All in all we would highly recommend this Victorian gem.

Spent two nights here and was very impressed by the scenery, the staff and the guest house facilities. Joanne at reception went out of her way to acquire speciality food that I could eat for breakfast, as I have food intolerances. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Room was very clean and comfortable, with a nice view from the private porch. Beautiful view of the Yarra river from the dining room was very relaxing while eating the included breakfast!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 1 night stay. It was a good reprieve from the hustle and hustle of Melbourne. Beautiful old homestead, good buffet breakfast and very tranquil surrounds. Located in a good spot, neat the little town. Would definitely stay there again.

I visited Oscar's on the Yarra for the wedding of my young nephew and the love of his life. The lovely vintage beautifully restored weatherboard building has a simplicity and honestly of style that blended harmoniously with its surroundings. Its design and openness allowed you to have the comfort of the interior while still feeling very close to the beauty of the exterior world, the amazing oak tree next to the big open veranda to the tall and graceful gums down by the gentle river. It was the perfect place for a celebration of young and honest love to take place. Thank you very much

Very peaceful relaxing B&B by the river. We suggest some chairs & tables closer to the river would be ideal, would set the scene of a long gone era, to take advantage of the clear running river.
Accommodation is very good with well appointed large rooms, a small refrigerator would make it perfect. The room's decor and furniture were perfect, and the small balcony set the country scene. The bed was very comfortable.
Breakfast was delicious and plentiful.

It's a lovely place. Rooms are very modern, our's was 2 singles, the room was very small but it was just really to sleep in so it was fine for us, there were no problems with cleanliness, that was great, the room have doors that open on to an outdoor decked area. We were extremely surprised when we couldn't find a fridge in the room...& the walls are so thin, you can hear everyone who's just walking down the hall & also, in the middle of the night if someone in the adjoining rooms use the toilet, you can even hear them taking the toilet paper off the roll!!... Breakfast in the morning was very nice.

Our stay was nice and relaxing, the food at oscars restaurant is absolutely amazing, we went with some friends and all 4 of us enjoyed entree, main and desserts. The property is beautiful and the staff are very friendly, the only downside was there was no mini fridge in the rooms and the walls/doors were thin so you could hear people in the hallway, other than that we all had a great weekend
