Had a most unpleasant experience. Arrived to a reasonable looking room with slightly weird odour. Went to bed and woke to being bitten by some nasty itchy mite in the bed/mattress. The manager kindly gave us a different room the next night and had no problems in that room but it certainly marred the experience. Won't be staying there again... More

Ged71, Manager at Boathouse Resort Motel, responded to this review

Dear Oliver, I am sorry that you had a reaction to something. As discussed, I was surprised that you did not come to say anything to us until 6pm the following day. You also said that you checked the bed & could not see anything to suggest mites of any sort, & that your wife continued to sleep in the... More

We finally got to stay here after driving past many times. We stayed one night at short notice when the weather was nice. As most of the reviews mention - how refreshing to have friendly welcoming staff. The male at reception couldn't have been more helpful even walking us to our unit. We were upstairs and the other end from... More

I am really bewildered by the good reviews for this place as our experience was really awful - I will start with the positives. The lady who attended us when we arrived was very nice and personable and the room was spacious and clean. The bathroom needs an overhaul particularly being a spa suite but it was serviceable. The road... More

The Boathouse Resort Motel is on the main road in Blairgowrie across the street from the water. We had a nice room on the second floor with a balcony.Free parking is available right outside the room. There are a few cafes just down the street but the restaurant in the hotel called Café Legend is excellent. The town of Sorrento... More

We made a same day booking. We looked for a hotel that met our budget. $170. We were pleasantly surprised by the professionalism of the receptionist. We were then so pleasantly surprised by the quality and cleanliness of the room. I highly recommend this hotel.

Loved our stay at the Boathouse, it was a surprise birthday weekend from my boyfriend. From greeting to check out we felt relaxed and enjoyed the chilled out atmosphere. Staying in a King Spa room, the bed was very comfortable and despite being so close to the main road you were never bothered by road noise. A perfect spot to... More

We stayed on a Monday night so we could get to the Hot springs early the next morning, and I'm so glad we did as this accommodation is wonderful! We had an upstairs room with a beautiful outlook, couldn't hear the cars on the main road once the door was shut, bed was comfy and room was clean. Of course... More

We wanted a place to stay overnight close to the wineries along the Mornington peninsula and was not disappointed. The location was great right on the main road but not noisy and across the road was the beach. The beach is clean and a great place to relax or walk. Just down the road-walking distance is a small strip of... More

We recently stayed here for three nights. We stayed in a spa suite. The room was lovely and spacious and very clean. The resort was nice and quiet even on New Years eve! We explored several areas of the mornington peninsular but we're always glad to come back to this peaceful place!
