Stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment, plenty of room for three couples. All rooms have a great view over the marina, good fast service on check in and out. Good selection of bars and restaurants below the building. Excellent place to stay if you don't to be trekking up and down the hills all weekend.

We stopped in Airlie Beach 3 nights on our road trip from Sunshine Coast to Cairns. We booked a ground floor unit as we both prefer no stairs (knees & carting luggage) - the fact that we would only have a pool view was not an issue. Be warned - there are NO ground floor units here - ground floor... More

Our room was clean and functional, however the building looks a bit tired. Most of the Reception staff were friendly and quite helpful. The website and in-room info says there is a gym, but this room is now a Games Room. The public spa was closed. We were charged 1.5% surcharge to pay for a tour by credit card -... More

Free internet was available for each room. A starter pack was also available for the room which included things such as washing powder, washing up liquid, coffee, milk etc which... More

Helpful and friendly reception and good room with view towards Airlie Beach. Everywhere was clean and tidy and our room was quiet and comfortable, Good advice and recommendations from Reception regarding trips to the Whitsunday Islands. The hotel is close to Airlie Beach and adjacent to the bus stop where the trips run from,

How this place has a 4 star rating I do not know. Its in a good location yes, but the apartment i was in (ground floor) was so old and outdated. The bed was so hard and uncomfortable.

My sister and I stayed in boathaven for 4 night. Large, clean and modern rooms. Location convenient as not located in the main street of Arlie. However we found it strange that you have to pay for toilet paper, shampoo etc after you used what's in your room and wifi is terrible slow.
