We stayed in Room 8 which was a king size spa suite for 3 nights, it is located at the rear of the complex and stairs need to be negotiated to get to room so pack light . The hotel is situated across from the beach which i good for summer. Inside the room it is like a little batchelor... More

The location is close to all services. Nothing was too much trouble for the management and were made very welcome. I wouldn't hesitate in coming back again. Plenty of space in the rooms and photos were accurate.

Stayed two nights in a luxury king size studio room with spa. Recently renovated and looked and smelt new. Very roomy with a large bathroom which had a very big shower and seperate spa. The room itself had a king bed which was unfortunately not kind to our backs and those heavy pillows which were hard work to get comfy.... More

The Boathouse Resort was easy to find, just off the main highway and across the road from the beach.Our upstairs suite was lovely -modern furnishings and huge bathroom. Cute little balcony where we had evening drinks.Shops and restaurants 50 metres walk. Nice pool area with sun loungers. Would recommend this accommodation.

We spent 4 days here in March. The units are large and come with a microwave and 3 knives, forks,spoons and plates. However the only place to wash them is in the bathroom sink, or in a large plastic bowl you have to fill. The appliances e.g. toaster, jug etc are of the cheapest quality. There were no knives to...

First time visiting this area and was pleasantly surprised by the close proximity to the beach. Just a short drive to Sorrento. Greeted by a lovely lady that was very helpful with things to see and do in the area. We would definitely recommend the Boathouse to others and will be back to stay ourselves.

We had a big modern room, clean and comfortable with kitchenette, fridge-freezer, microwave, aircon and TV. Swimming pool just a few meters away. Very friendly reception. A short walk to Blairgowrie shops and restaurants. Would definitely return.

The rooms were clean, spacious and the bed was very comfy. They have dispensers in the bathroom for hand soap, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. Walking distance to the small Blairgowrie shopping strip. The only draw back was the people upstairs were noisy and you can hear the chairs being moved. I'd recommend the upstairs rooms to avoid this. The... More
