Stayed for four nights as part of my East Australia tour - good 2nd floor room with view of marina and sea, right across from bus drop off (which is what I'm travelling on). Room clean and comfortable with kitchen facilities, tv, balcony and access to pool. I enjoyed the five minute walk into town and the slightly longer one... More

We stayed in a one bedroom room near poolside. The room was similiar to a standard motel room, and I was a little disappointed that we couldn't upgrade to a better room upstairs due to a busy time of the year. The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfortable for a good nights sleep. I did expected more... More

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
