So we wanted a pub lunch after being on the road all day and it was 2:15pm and the bistro closed at 2pm - From experience most won't ever cook after that time but these guys were more than happy to. Brought out a few bowls of salad from the closed salad bar for us too. Meals were huge, has... More

Looks nothing from the outside but has a nice outside eating area at the back overlooking the beach. We only had the butterfish but it was very good, the salad bar was also ok and the price was lower than we have paid anywhere else in the area.

Friends of ours suggested the Boston, and I was a little hesitant as had heard meals weren't great, but they swore the food would be good so off we went. The restaurant was very quiet - only two other tables of diners, they had the social club Xmas party going on out in the beer garden. Chicken snitzel for me... More

You have to run the water for twenty minutes to get it hot, motel stafd dont tell you the local water is bad and the bathroom sink, full of cigarette butts. However its not the worst place to stay. Staff are friendly.

After our tent got ripped apart in a wind gust at the local camp ground, we needed quick smart some alternative roof over our heads. The Boston Hotel promised a basic budget room at a great rate and believe it or not, they did not disappoint. Even their breakfast was on the generous side and basic as it was, it... More

I stayed here 3 nights in January and we had no problem with the hotel. The staff and locals were very friendly and the rooms are what you would expect foe the price. They provide plenty for breakfast. the only problem waa how long it took for hot water but it wasnt a major problem.

Outdated, great location, but rundown. OK for a one two night stay because I always have believed you don't go away to stay in a hotel. Very noisy on Friday night with lots of bogans in front bar running a muck. Quiet on Saturday. It did it's job, food there was pretty average. Would done elsewhere next time! Ok for... More

This place has lots of potential but it's outdated and pretty ordinary. My wife and i enjoyed our meals and the service was quick. It's not somewhere I would stay or possibly ever return to but great location location and meals were ok.
