A most impressive building with luxury fittings, a huge lounge tastefully furnished, amazing breakfast room with a terrace overlooking the river, and a superb breakfast. It is situated overlooking a wide river which is effectively like a small harbour, with yachts moored, but it is very quiet. One of the best hotels at which we have stayed.

My wife and I stayed in a river view room. It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The whole building was beautiful with immaculate grounds. Port Fairy itself was pretty and lots to do.....

Spent one night here, and it was lovely. The building and location in general are full of character. We had a river view room and it was superb and spotless. Breakfast on the veranda was the icing on the cake. We walked to Griffiths Island as well as the fish and chip shop on Griffiths Street which is very good....

Oscar's Waterfront is a beautiful hotel with an English country house ambience. There is a lovely lounge for visitors with comfortable sofas and a beautiful dining area fronting on to the river where breakfast is served. We were able to have our gourmet breakfast outside- possibly one of the nicest breakfasts of our extended trip to Australia: I particularly liked...

Superb, quiet and classy place, very very completely run by the friendly Judith. I would recommend the place to everybody ! We took the 2 room suite...Which was spacious and elegant. But these places need to have a second luggage rack and clothes hooks in the bathroom, which they lack. And, just one, large TV in the drawing room would...

This hotel is great and better than we expected. The place only has a small number of rooms so feels intimate in a grand building with a very European feel. We stayed in the premier room which was huge and great. The place was very clean, the wifi worked fine, the bed very comfortable, lots of sitting space, huge bathroom,...

What a fabulous place to stay, this was our 2nd night on the ocean road, we were given a spa room which was enormous with a spa bathroom. On arrival we were made to feel as though we were the only guests, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast is included and boy what a breakfast but you have to go...

We stayed for one night and feel we should have booked longer. Port Fairy is a very nice spot on the water, which we didn't get to see fully because of our schedule. Our bedroom looked over the boardwalk, water and boats. Checking in was a little like attending an interview, not because of the questioning, but because we sat...

We stayed here for one night on our trip on the Great Ocean Road. Very warm friendly welcome, lovely plush accommodation and fabulous breakfast. Good choice of restaurants within walking distance too. Charming town and harbour area would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay.

We stayed here for one night on our trip along the Great Ocean Road and wished we could have stayed for longer. We received a warm welcome and were shown to a room overlooking the river. We were given a good recommendation for dinner and a table was booked for us. The room was well furnished with all you need....
