Oscar’s Hotel and Cafe Bar


Oscar’s was originally the Criterion Hotel, a popular venue in the gold rush days. A recent extensive refurbishment has transformed it into an iconic property with 13 stylish, contemporary guest rooms and open plan restaurant, bar and courtyard.

Oscar’s guest rooms were designed with the business traveller in mind. Broadband internet is available in all rooms and desks with designer leather chairs provide the perfect area to work from. All rooms have private facilities.

The deluxe spa rooms are ideal for that romantic getaway. Soak all of your aches and pains away while watching your favourite television show on the LCD television screen. Choose a DVD from the hotel collection and order a meal or snack from the restaurant menu to be enjoyed in your room.

Oscar’s is conveniently located directly opposite Central Square, Ballarat’s number one shopping centre. Also within walking distance to major places of interest in Ballarat.

Oscar’s has many places for you to relax and unwind. Enjoy a drink in the lounge area, sun filled courtyard or brand new garden bar. Meals and snacks are available all day.
