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Outdated, great location, but rundown.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This place has lots of potential but it's outdated and pretty ordinary.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.

Stinks, therooms were boiling, the showers were awful, the sink was blocked and we were rudely awoken and forced toleave by the maid when we didn't even need our rooms cleaned. The bar is awful and filled with many violent people, overall DO NOT STAY HERE

The ensuite was good, but the room was fairly shabby and smelled a bit musty. The carpet in particular was badly stained. I would only recommend for those on a tight budget for a short 1-2 night stay.

It looks the part but is a let down. The room smelt rather funky and the hot water took about 3 minutes to get to the shower head. Restaurant service was good and dinner nice.
