The Boat House at Blairgowrie offers a terrific base from which to explore Sorrento. Portsea and the Mornington Peninsula. Rachel & Brett are gifted hosts, offering a warm welcome, natural hospitality and valuable local advice. The well appointed deluxe suites are exceptionally comfortable with glamorous bathrooms, well equipped kitchenette and comfortable beds, more commonly found in properties with significantly higher...

Had the pleasure of staying here recently and was very impressed. It is a very beachy inspired hotel and situated opposite the beach and just a walk away from a small shopping centre. We had a balcony suite which was very well appointed. Lovely huge bed with good quality linen. Shame the weather wasn't a bit hotter as I would... More

This is a very basic motel that we would rate no more than 2-3 stars, but charging like a 4 star. The room are spacious but yet again very basic. The walls are paper thin so you here every momvement of your neighbour, both upstairs and on the side. Good position opposite the beach and close to a small shopping... More

We stayed on a Sunday night in August 2015. We booked a spa suite and were pleased to be upgraded to a king spa suite upon arrival. The room was modern and immaculately clean. It was a cold night but the heating kept us warm. We had an enjoyable meal at Cafe Legend. Would definitely stay again.

We recently stayed here on a Sunday night. Highly recommend this place. We have previously stayed at Sorrento and decided to stay here for a change. Very glad we did. We had a really quiet peaceful night. We had a balcony suite which was large and very clean and had everything you could possibly need. The bed was really comfortable.... More

Bought e bundled deal together with the searoad ferry which gave us some savings. Check in was a breeze, room key & tickets were already waiting for us upon arrival. Nice & clean newly refurnished room. Next to main road but quiet peaceful throughout e night... 😊

Came here with my partner for a little anniversary getaway and we were not disappointed! We came in winter and off-peak season, and the friendly and helpful staff were so gracious as to upgrade us to the spa suite upon arrival. A good start! The room had ample amenities and was beautifully laid out with a big bed, DVD player,... More

We booked the Boathouse for our wedding anniversary intending to have dinner at the onsite restaurant, Cafe Legend, which has received great reviews. We booked a standard room on Wotif and were pleased to be told on check in that we had been upgraded to a balcony suite. We were then asked to sign a document with a long list... More

Stayed here over the school holidays, nice room, needs a bit of a make over decor wise. Walking distance to the Blairgowrie shops and across the road from the beach. Staff were fantastic. Definitely worth staying here again.

We stayed at The Boathouse Resort Motel for our wedding anniversary last week and we couldn't have been happier with any aspect of our stay. The room was spacious, clean and contained all the amenities you will need for your stay. Our room also had a huge spa which we took advantage of each day. The rooms are quite soundproof,... More
