Great little spot for couples, very clean and comfortable. Spent two nights there and couldn't fault the accommodation. The cooking facilities are very limited, however, with the great local restaurants why would you want to cook anyway. Secure parking and within a kilometre or so to town centre this place is really lovely and quiet. Well worth a visit.

A nice quiet, clean place on the river (our room wasn't actually over it but others are). A B&B with no breakfast, but plenty of options in Goolwa (especially Motherduck!). No iron though. Would be a lovely place in better weather!

Such a wonderfully relaxing and quiet spot. Both Studio 1 and 2 have great views of the lake. The accommodation is clean and very comfortable. Thank you Esther for your warm hospitality. Within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Goolwa .

My husband and I stayed at Goolwa Boat Haven for a long weekend and had a fantastic time. We loved the modern and spacious studio, which was very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed sitting on our private pergola with a glass of wine, relaxing and watching the pelicans on the river. It is a magnificent location and the owners,... More

I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of September 2014. Couldn't fault it in anyway. The chalet was lovely and clean and spacious and all the kitchen facilities and furniture were of good quality. The bathroom was well equipped with toiletries. The location was great with beautiful views of the river. The owners Esther and Martin were delightful... More

Our only disappointment was, we had to return home and couldn't stay longer.. So, have booked for another stay. Beautifully appointed room, clean, lovely décor, sheets, wine glasses, and everything provided for your stay. Great kitchen facilities, best I have ever seen, no need to bring anything! A BBQ provided to cook on- outside in the lovely pergola area, easy... More

My husband and I spent the Australia day long weekend, 3 nights staying at the Goolwa Boat Haven. The location is perfect and the studios are modern, very clean and well equipped. Our studio was located right on the water with fabulous views and a very calming effect. A great place to chill out and rejuvenate! On Sunday there was... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Goolwa Boat Haven in October for four nights. We occupied the studio closest to the water and experienced beautiful water birds and a stunning view. Our studio was well equipped and beautifully decorated. The room was very clean and modern. We had access to bicycles and kayaks, we took... More

We had pre-booked our stay on a recommendation from a neighbour of ours and I'm afraid it just did not live up to our expectations. We stayed one night mid week and were changed $260 dollars so the rates on home page aren't exactly correct. The room was very clean and lovely attention to detail but I'm afraid we found... More

Esther F, Owner at Goolwa Boat Haven, responded to this review

It is very sad out visitors obviously didn't enjoy their stay. This does not normally happen and perhaps it was a combination of different expectations and a really windy, cold day & night. We would like to point out that our charges are correct as advertised $200 per night based on a two night minimum stay. During quiet times we... More
