Exceptional experience

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Jan 2023
I booked the hotel on the way back from Torquay to Adelaide. Having visited Port Fairy some 13 years ago I was looking forward to seeing if and how it had changed. We arrived at the hotel late afternoon having stopped at Cape Otway on the way. The welcome was delightful and to be told we had the use of the entire hotel for our two day stay. It felt like being in some grand country house for the weekend, the only people we saw were the manager and partner (chef). It was like having our own personal butler! The breakfast was grand and the lounge, library and waterfront terrace were so welcoming.
I can highly recommend Oscars, probably the best hotel I’ve stayed at in Australia.
The quality of the facilities was second to none, no chipped paintwork.

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.

Room tip: The premium suite is beautiful,

Oscars is superb. The accommodation is first rate and cannot be beaten. Andriana and Shane looked after us so well; their breakfasts are outstanding. And they're such nice people too, always happy to chat about Port Fairy.

We'll definitely be going there again.

We loved every minute of our stay at Oscars. Gorgeous accommodation - beautifully furnished. Perfect location and delicious, fresh cooked breakfast each morning, sitting in the dining room looking out over the river. Shane and Andrea have such warm, friendly personalities - nothing was too much trouble. Would love to visit again.

What a gem this place is in Port Fairy!
We were greeted by the lovely Adrianna who creates a very happy relaxed vibe in this incredible Georgian home.
My husband & I could not recommend her highly enough. Wonderful service, nothing is a problem! Shane cooks amazing breakfasts every morning where you can sit on the veranda overlooking yachts & boats on the river.
The beds are incredibly comfortable and the bedding new & fresh. We had a river view which was beautiful.
Oscars is in the perfect location…close to everything!
Excellent 3 nights away to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary!! Thanks again!
