Needed a place to crash on my first night in town. Its a very basic room. Cold, smells funny and is dated with a plug in heater. You're above a pub so it gets a bit noisy but thats what you get for this price :-)

Had a good meal at the bar and grill. Good service and well presented food. Heavy on the chips but you. Can make up for that with the excellent salad bar. Would recommend for people staying at the Hilton that does not have a restaurant. Will eat there again

We have dined at the Hotel Boston several times now. We have never been dissapointed. The meals are very reasonably priced. The food is of excellent quality. The salad bar is varied and delicious. The menu is extensive to cater for everyone's tastes. We recommend it to anypne who wants a quality meal and value for your money

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
