Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Amazing bed and pillows. I travel often for business and rarely get a good night's sleep due to hard beds with brick like pillows. As soon as I walked in and sat on the bed I let out a sigh of relief. It is so comfortable like sleeping on a cloud and I didn't even need to use my own pillow. Also the room has a smart tv so u can use your own streaming services. Room clean tidy and nice view of the water. Thank you for getting it right! I will be back on my next business trip.

This is about the 3rd time back to Boathaven we love it so much , every time we go to Airlie Beach we always try to stay here. Great location and views and has everything you need if you just want to hang there but close enough to restaurants and pubs if you want to venture out.

Simply the best view from the balcony. Garden area looks really good with a pool, bbq and sitting area. Lovely white fluffy towels, whiter than white bedding and a good size apartment. This is where the good points end! Unfortunately the whole apartment was dirty and needed a complete refurb in the kitchen area and the bathroom. Limited kitchen utensils and some were dusty/dirty. Very dated in parts but lovely wall paintings.

Thank you Jacqueline for taking the time to leave your feedback. We appreciate it. It's unfortunate though you didn't mention any of the above during your stay. And we now only reading about it online. Please feel free next time to approach Hotel staff who could have easily fixed these issues that were missed. We do hope you still enjoyed your stay where our affordable rate reflects our product, with a fabulous view overlooking the Port of Airlie.

The location is fantastic, making it convenient to explore the area. Awesome apartment views as well. A special mention to Brenda at the reception, who was not only very nice but also exceptionally helpful throughout my stay. Without a doubt, I would choose to stay there in the future.

Great place to stay for our exploration of Whitsundays. There was no need to use our car as we could walk to the CBD for restaurants, the lagoon, beach and Ferry Terminal. Our group consisted of 7 adults only (no children) and we were able to gather each evening at the outdoor pool area which includes a BBQ Plate. Our group included some Italian Tourists and they rated our Whitsunday trip the best of all. Thanks Brenda - very helpful always!

The bed it was like sleeping in heaven, very soft and warm for me, I get very deep relax all night long, thank so much for that, and going to the city for lunch or dinner it was very easy enjoy the time and the people. Also walking a long the beach the music, the fires and the children play around it was so peaceful and relaxing for my inner self and my divine soul, it was like I said before just paradise, the energy of the Divine Mother Earth is in there, and I was able to feeling inside my skin, that is was my personal and private experience

Brenda in the office untangled our bus booking so we could get to the airport on time. While my grandson and I sat by the pool enjoying ourselves, she found a solution, came to us and -- with a big grin -- wished us a happy time for the rest of our Australian trip.

Newport, Australia45 contributions51 helpful votes
Location is excellent as is the pool and view. There unfortunately all the good points stop. Upon arriving in our room the shower had mould,toilet could have used a good scrub and toilet seat broken. Certainly not a 4 star as advertised and expected. The room was old and needed a lot of TLC. Parking is at a premium as there are not enough spaces for units available. The front driveway is exceptionally steep and not friendly for anyone that has a mobility problem,no railings and no steps. There is no mention about the steep driveway on their web page and the airport t/f is unable to deliver you and your suitcase to reception so it is a effort to drag your suitcase up. The rear car park entrance isn’t much better.

So good. Great view over the marina and bay. Great pool/spa/bbq area. Spa on balcony was luxurious. Room was clean and spacious. Short walk to town and not much of a hill unlike other places. Brenda was fantastic and very helpful.
