Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was a lovely bed and breakfast on the waterfront. There are two rooms that are on the ground floor in a separate building so we had requested one of these in advance. The room was quite spacious with a totally separate living space with comfortable sofa and chairs. This room did come with a water kettle so we could make ourselves a cup of tea or coffee without having to go to the main house. The manager greeted us and explained the keys to us so we had totally access to the main house if we wanted to sit on the patio overlooking the water and/or make ourselves a pot of tea or french press coffee. Unfortunately we were out each day so couldn't really enjoy the main house as much as we wanted. We thought the breakfasts were delicious- lots of variety and a choice of a cooked breakfast. As an example, we had omelets with spinach and tomato, side of bacon, rye toast with plum and orange jam, yogurt with granola, fresh fruit of orange, melon, peaches, plums and grapes and a choice of orange or apple juice. Each day, the staff offered to make our pot of tea or french press coffee which was a nice option.

We had stayed at this hotel many years before and were not disappointed with our second visit. Rachel was friendly and welcoming when we arrived and offered us one of two rooms to choose from. We decided on the courtyard suite as it had its own tea/coffee making facilities, was large in size and saved us having to carry our three large suitcases up flights of stairs! We were not disappointed it was a lovely suite furnished well with a modern bathroom containing Molten Brown toiletries and large comfy bed! Judith checked us out and was also friendly and accommodating. The best place to stay in Port Fairy for sure. Highly recommended!

Well after a long day of travel along the great ocean drive we drove into Port Fairy in lovely evening sun. We arrived at Oscar’s and we were warmly greeted by Andriana . She gave us a tour of the place and we were blown away. It is one of the most delightful boutique hotels we have stayed and we have travelled the world.
We booked the premium suite upstairs and it was vast, thoughtfully cooled and wine was delivered to us as we settled in. The bed linen and how the room is dressed is simply divine. Very large shower room, dressing closet and fridge and drink making facility.
Before we arrived we had encountered difficulty booking restaurants as there were more people than places. Still we went to Lemongrass where I thought I had made a booking and I had made the error of booking their restaurant in Colac!!!!!! So nowhere to eat. Andriana told us not to worry we were welcome to bring in a takeaway and use all of the thoughtful nessecities left out. We couldn’t have been happier!!! The deck is right at the front of the property overlooking the river full of luxury comfortable dining and seating options that has been sadly lacking from other places on our four weeks down under from the UK.
We had such a pleasant time we cancelled our next nights restaurant and again had a chicken and salad takeaway sittiing in luxury on the deck. That night we were the only guests so felt like millionaires.
Breakfast each morning was beautiful,y prepared by Shane Andriana’s partner and it was TOP NOTCH. A poached pear with vanilla bean yoghurt arrived whilst we perused the menu. Yum! There were plenty of choices of what to eat.
We enjoyed a game of golf at the local golf club as the weather wasn’t great on our second day. Fabulous welcome there.
This hotel was without doubt one of the best places that we stayed on our trip which included stays at The Louise Barossa valley and The Langham Melbourne.
Thanks to Andriana and Shane for a most wonderful stay and if ever we return we hope to be with you for much longer.

Its probably the best accommodation in Port Fairy and perhaps the lack of options and perhaps a li.ited season explain the price of a room,perhaps!
The hostess is very friendly and the staff are too.
The rooms are nice enough and the property has a charm to it.
However, noone there to help one with suitcases, furniture in the rooms is sparse, bed is not the most comfortable, the breakfast that some other reviewers have raved about,is nothing to write home about.
Now if this cost one $200 a nite you would have said,ok I guess.But the rooms are over $400 a nite! Makes no sense at all and,I guess the law of large numbers says enough visitors will be silly enough to pay that once, so the prices are what they are. A good thing is that the property is nicely situated on the water and a short walk into town.
Was a nice stay but wouldn't recommend given the really poor value for money.

My partner and I could not recommend this place enough. From the moment you walk through the doors the setting is homey and picturesque. The rooms are quaint with stunning views of either the garden or water. The staff are just amazing! We couldn't thank Judith enough for her welcoming and kind nature and recommendations on where to go and what to see, she has a wealth of knowledge of the area. Not to mention, you will enjoy a cafe style breakfast right by the water. This location is the perfect spot for a relaxing get away with the water right at your back fence. We will be back to this gorgeous spot!

We stayed here for an overnight stop over on the first night of a holiday road trip from Melbourne to The Barossa Valley and it was a great way to start the trip. This boutique hotel is in a beautiful old building and is perfectly located on the waterfront. The staff are friendly and welcoming and looked after us very well. A fabulous breakfast overlooking the water was a highlight. We were in a room in a separate building from the main building and our only minor isue was the bed in our room was a little hard and uncomfortable. Overall a good accommodation option in a lovely part of the world.

We had a beautiful stay at Oscars and were welcomed by Andrianna prior to our check in time. Our room was garden facing and very spacious with a very comfortable bed(linen sheets) The breakfast was amazing with poached pears to die for and house made granola. Nothing was too much trouble. I loved the relaxing music playing all day long - felt like you had entered a day spa! The lounge rooms were enticing with the open fires and John spent an afternoon in the smaller one reading with his feet up. Would definitely recommend and we hope to be back perhaps and book out the 5 rooms in the main building with friends!

Beautiful building with impeccable taste in decor. Food and staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We asked for dressing gowns as we hadn’t brought any with us, and they were provided without question. The Hotel/B&B had parking and was on the riverfront. Which was so pretty in the sunshine, great for photos. Breakfast was superb, and the shortbread, delicious!
Couple of things that would have been nice, a dressing table or similar, with mirror in the bedroom (my pet hate is not having one) The beautiful sitting room was not very inviting. We took a glass of wine down after dinner but there weren’t any side tables to put them on. One large central coffee table that was much more than an arms length away!
Local town was ok. We had a walk out to the Lighthouse which was very enjoyable.

This was our second time staying at Oscar’s and it was even better than the first!!

We love this place so much…the rooms are so comfortable and spacious, the breakfasts delicious, and the hosts most accommodating and considerate. We truly appreciate everything Andriana and the chef did for us during our stay and can’t wait for the next visit in the summer. The riverfront location, walking distance to the lighthouse and beaches is truly one of a kind. Oscar’s will not disappoint!

Look forward to seeing you again soon! ✨

Fantastic location and a really great welcome which was friendly and informative. Thanks for booking us a table at a popular restaurant.
The room was very comfortable, great bathroom too. The main house too was very comfortable and the ability to sit on the veranda watching the harbour with a drink - tea (and proper loose leaf at that) in our case was the icing.
We followed the suggestion of a walk around Griffith Island too.
Good breakfast to see us on our way
