Fodor's Expert Review Oscars Waterfront Boutique Hotel

41B Gipps St., Port Fairy, Victoria, 3284, Australia Fodor's Choice

With an absolute waterfront location, overlooking a marina of yachts, this hotel gives French provincial style an Australian edge. There's a grand staircase straight out of Gone With the Wind and an inviting downstairs sitting room with open fire. Each room is individually decorated—some in stripes, others in florals. There are various communal lounges, which are decorated with regional artworks, and have open fireplaces and plush armchairs in which to curl up on wintry days. Gourmet breakfasts include caramelized banana hotcakes and tomato bruschetta with basil butter. If the weather allows, breakfast is served on the lovely veranda overlooking the river.
