Oscar's on the Yarra
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Warburton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 June 2014

My partner and I decided to stray out of Melbourne central into the Yarra Valley and it was the best decision of the holiday. We found this gem in virtually the middle of no where and it was absolutely lovely to stay there. The hotel presentation was lovely and newly renovated, the outside is beautiful right next to the river with surrounding wildlife. The management and staff were so friendly and very accommodation for our awkward dietary needs. We highly recommend this place for a holiday, retreat or even a wedding!!!! Absolutely amazing, we'll be back!!!

We arrived late on a Saturday night and were unable to inform them that we are running late. The manager tried to contact us several times and despite being unreachable and out of mobile range, she ensured that our booking was not cancelled and made us feel very welcome when we eventually turned up. She was very helpful and booked us in for dinner at their restaurant. The restaurant staff sensed that we were starving and offered us some bread while we we waited for our mains. The food was excellent. Breakfast was also great and all in all we were very pleased by the whole experience. Great location, excellent food, friendly and helpful staff. Will go there again.

This place is in the most beautiful setting on the yarra river, peaceful, staff extremely friendly, free parking and free wifi. Couple of downsides is that there is no bar fridge in the room, the room we had was quite small and we could hear the people in the next room and had to tap on the wall for them to turn down their TV. Also no bar until the Restaurant opened at 6 which was rather disappointing as it's a 20 minute walk into town.

Great place to escape the hustle & bustle & take the time to 'smell the roses'.
Gorgeous accommodation however the room was probably the smallest we have ever stayed in anywhere and first time we have struck a room without a bar fridge. Traffic jam with just two of us - trying to walk around the bed to get to the bathroom! Having said that, the bed & pillows were very comfortable and it was nice to be able to just walk out of the balcony door and straight down to the peace & tranquility of the river. Relaxed in one of the lounge areas before dining in at Oscar's experiencing delicious food & great service. Staff very friendly.

We stayed one friday night in this beautifully renovated historic accommodation. We'd specifically requested the best river view room available in the booking made several months ago though someone may've missed the memo as we were given a lovely large non river view room (number 5) with an average sized bathroom. It was however no trouble at all to swap to a river view room as luckily it wasn't fully booked. We loved our slightly smaller room (number 10) with a slightly larger bathroom and direct balcony access to stroll down to the Yarra River. The medium-sized oak tree blocks views for a few rooms on the river side but with some smart lowest branch tree-lopping, this magnificent tree can be retained and river views further opened up. The classy well heated rooms are thoughtfully and elegantly furnished with dimmable lights, great firm pillows and nods to art deco. A small bar fridge wasn't necessary as the restaurant is magnificent (if necessary I'd suggest installing a bar fridge in the bottom of the closet space and placing a bench over it to best maximise space). The delicious degustation dinner was sensational as was the cooked breakfast- fresh DIY juice is an excellent idea. Wine list knowledge i.e. location, its basic notes and being able describe the components of the dishes are fundamental as more senior staff aptly demonstrated. Although our room wasn't the largest, there was still space for 2 bedside tables even though one bed side table had been removed. I'd suggest reinstating the bedside table in room 10, unless a single traveller is staying, as I ended pushing the bed across flush with the wall and used a chair for bedside paraphernalia. I've tried to be as constructive as possible with my feedback as this is a really lovely place with such friendly and helpful staff, a gorgeous location and beautiful rooms- with a few minor tweaks it would have been absolutely faultless. Oscar's represents great value for money with professional, friendly service in a beautiful part of regional Victoria. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: All rooms are of a high standard. The fire escape plan gives you a good idea of more desirable rooms...

We stayed here Saturday night, was a very pleasant place to be. Reception staff were helpful and friendly, they have two lovely lounges, one with an open fire to sit in with a drink and to relax. The room itself was small but it was very clean and modern as was the bathroom. The bed and pillows were so comfortable and the room kept a nice temperature overnight, there was a nice balcony outside the room which was nice to sit and listen to the river running by with lovely views. The restaurant was amazing, i ordered a Vegetarian dish and it was probably the best vegetarian meal i have had in years. The one negative is there is no fridge in the room so you would need to bring your own esky.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is as secluded from other guests as possible as it can be a little noisy at time...

We just came back from our trip to Yarra Valley and rangers. We couldn't choose better place to stay.
The hotel was just fantastic, lovely staff (from Reception to Restaurant and Housekeeping), lovely art deco decoration, wonderful river views, so clean and so welcome. The food at the restaurant was delicious.
We could listen the kookaburras in the morning, see the wild rabbits and lots of ducks around the hotel.
The only thing I could say in "negative" is that our room didn't have a fridge on it :(
We are going to come back!!!
