Only stayed for two nights. Poolside room was comfortable for two people. Pool was clean and inviting. Discounted rate of $135 / night was reasonable. Having a car is recommended unless you like daily walks as it is just outside town.

I stayed there for five days. I didn' t have great expectations about this hotel, but at the end I left highly satisfied! There were more than I needed.

This hotel was hard to review and i might be a little harsh with a average rating but it probably was in-between a average to very good, the hotel is definitely in need of a little TLC but the price for the accommodation reflects that. For the price it was worth the stay and the pool was excellent for the... More

Pleased that you found Boathaven Spa Resort value for money, The waterfall pool is a very relaxing place to unwind for all of the family. The short stroll to the main town centre makes our location great for families. Hopefully we will see you again at Boathaven Spa Resort. More

I would like to say I had an absolutely fantastic stay in one of the Penthouses with my three children and husband. The rooms were so clean I could have eaten off the floor. Kitchen was fully equipped with microwave, dishwasher, full size fridge. First bedroom we put two kids in the queen bed with their own en-suite and balcony.... More

Very very disappointed. It is nothing more than a motel, where cars drive up to the front of the rooms. It is not serviced and we had 2 towels between 3 of us for 5 days. It is definitely not a resort and the rooms are tired. The pool is quite nice, but not much else . You have to... More

Sorry to hear Boathaven Spa Resort did not meet your expectations. The Poolside apartments that you stayed in are located at the front of the property and the car parking for these apartments is located directly in front of each apartment, parking for the Bayside Spa Suites, Studios and Penthouses is located at the rear of the property.

The room was a good size with views out to sea however it was plagued with mites. There are plenty of warnings in the room to keep it clean due to bugs but we did keep it very clean and there were still a large number of tiny grey bugs everywhere. I didn't actually complain at the time so in... More
