Had a lovely over night stay. The check in was good and the breakfast was a la carte, offering some original dishes. The room was well appointed although the bed was a little hard and the bathroom lacked body lotion and a shaving mirror for those of use with poor eye sight! We were a little disappointed with Port Fairy... More

Lovely B&B right on the waterfront at Port Fairy with welcoming hosts, reminded me of a Tuscan Villa. Rooms are spacious and well appointed, with large comfortable beds. Only downside was that the bathroom was a tad tiny, with such a large room I thought that a bath would not have been out of the question A'la carte breakfast was... More

With no evening meal option, we can't call this an hotel but it is a high quality b&b. We took a courtyard view room for a night, as selected by our tour agent. The waterfront rooms have a better view but we were content with ours as being modern and comfortable. We arrived in good time, but it seems reception... More

Arrived quite late after a long drive, but what a welcome... A beautiful hotel, the best bed I've ever slept in, so comfortable we overslept. Gorgeous waterfront room view. Amazing and friendly staff. Amazing breakfast. I cannot fault my stay. If you can stay here, do so.

During our road trip along the Great Ocean Road in Australia, we stayed at Oscars Water Front Boutique Hotel in Port Fairy. This small hotel is amazing. The breakfast is one of the best I've had anywhere. The location is perfect. It's a short walk to Griffiths Island where I did my morning run. The management truly knows how to... More

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... More

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... More

What a fantastic find, hidden by the river in this quiet town. Judith greeted us warmly, advised on a brilliant walk for the late afternoon and booked a table in a local restaurant.

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... More
