Oscar's is physically beautiful, a 20-year-old building designed to evoke an older era with tall ceilings, lots of mouldings, and tasteful furnishings....all with big modern bathrooms that are well-appointed. The room I was in (at the top of the stairs) was spacious and beautiful, but starting to show some age, and probably could use a paint/stain touch-up. It was quite...

We were met at the front door by Richard who pointed out that check in was not until 2.30, yes we were 13 minutes early but still surprised that he turned us away rather than invite us to wait in the lounge, he didn't say if it was because the room was not ready or he just would not allow...

Stayed in a courtyard suite with its own sitting room. Everything was perfect, more than enough room for the two of us. Judith our hoste was very helpful pointing out places for dinner and suggested a lovely walk around the island. A nice touch is tea and coffee facilities with homemade shortbread available all day in the breakfast room. Breakfast...

Fantastic little hotel situated in the best part of Port Fairy. Property is an absolute beauty with a fantastic deck overlooking the river. Our room was spotless and the view from the windows fabulous. Service experienced was equal to the best we have experienced anywhere in the world. Breakfast was substantial and tasted great.

Our room was fabulous - spacious and the fireplace was a lovely touch and given the weather very welcome, although not needed for heat as the room was warm enough without the fire. Judith was wonderfully welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for her - she was so amazingly helpful. The breakfast was truly gourmet as well. We would...

Great B&B that we have stayed in a few times and will again. Pleasant welcoming, spacious room with some old charm character. Generous breakfast with choices to keep you going most of the day.. and if you felt like it, some beautiful shortbread cookies.

From the moment we arrived until we checked out, we were treated like kings. Fabulous river view room, with a huge comfy bed and excellent en-suite, mini-bar, air con, wifi, and a superb cooked breakfast. Enormous sitting room with cosy fire, and outside decking where you can relax over a drink and enjoy the river. Parking outside. Beautiful, spacious building,...

We enjoyed one night at this hotel which has a quiet and historical ambience. The room and bathroom were large and well appointed. We had a riverside room with large windows and a truly pretty view. There was a welcome fire in the large guest lounge where we enjoyed a relaxing read and chat with other travelers. The breakfast room...
