Lovely hotel with friendly and proffessional staff. Very good location due to the beach, but a bit tricky to walk in to town, because in some places there were no sidewalks and quite heavy traffic. The view from the restaurant is absolutley beautiful, and it could have been as beautiful from the room-balconies, but unfortunately a big tree in the...

Our husband and I checked in late and were greeted really well. The lady explained things to us and took her time going through breakfast times etc We had a deluxe beachfront room which was not very private if that's what you want then I suggest something else as the rooms open up onto the pool and all face onto...

Just near by the sea very nice view. Although it is an old hotel cleanless is quite ok. Bed could be more comfortable. I found the price a bit expensive with all the benefits, especially restaurant is very expensive when compared with other restaurant around hotel. Not helping us for late check out was disappointing.

The Boathouse has an outstanding track record for years now in food,location and a real boutique feeling.I am a regular client for years now and sent a few friends this time to celebrate their 50th birthday which the staff made unforgetable. Thanks once again to the staff which is and remains the biggest asset of the Boathouse.

We had our wedding at the boathouse and it was everything and more than we could've expected!! Organising the event while being in Australia was very easy and stress free as they had great communication and answered all our questions straight away. The beach set up for the ceremony and the set up for the reception was beautiful!! Add that...

The restaurant has good views over the bay though the outside was closed when we went there as they were expecting rain. The ambience is up market with plenty of space between the tables and a small group providing background music. The service is excellent and unobtrusive. The food is a mixture of Thai and European with an extensive wine...

We love the Boathouse and have been there several times now. Why are we coming back: The staff is outstanding and the location too. Its a small intime hotel where we enjoy very much staying - feels like we are one big family. We heard that its to be renovated make sure to keep the atmosphere & hopefully the staff
