    Tidy option”

    Beautiful outlook, I was only there for the evening but looked like it had a good range of facilities. The decor was a bit tired but otherwise very clean and tidy. I was a bit worried about driving my rented 4WD down the very steep slope to underground parking but sure it would have been OK. Lots of security for the nervous solo traveler) - I found it a bit over the top however did feel safe.

    Great but maybe 4.5* is a stretch”

    We were pleasantly surprised at the size of our apartment - it was massive and the kitchen was well stocked. The resort is clean and well presented, in a great location. We were lucky enough to be given room 311 on the top floor at the front of the resort (highly recommend as the view was great!) Would be good if reception was 24 hour (it is only open 8am-4pm on weekends - not sure what you do if you need to check in/out outside those times). The only negative really was the bed wasn't the most comfortable - considering it is rated 4.5*, I would have expected a comfortable king size bed rather than a queen - its the little details which takes a hotel from a 3 to 4* to higher and I think 4.5* is a bit of a stretch for the boathouse resort - but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay otherwise.

    Very nice apartment with all facilities and good and safe parking. The whole apartment was very clean and all the amenities and kitchen was very good. However the cleanliness was not up to scratch. The trough in the laundry room was dirty. The lounge cushions had sand under the cushions and even small toys were found under the cushions.

    Only stopped for one night not arriving until 4.00 pm however have booked to return for a more relaxing stay prior to Christmas. Only saw one member of staff as they were closing reception as we arrived. Had a 3 bedroom apartment very spacious and extremely well equipped if you were staying longer and needed to cook. Beds firm but comfortable furnishings ample and pleasant. Lovely view across resort pool to river. A pleasant walk to hotel and some very good restaurants where we had dinner on the river and breakfast the next morning. Good undercover parking. Overall a very pleasant stay in a lovely spot!!

    Oaks Boathouse - Nicest hotel in Tea Gardens”

    Lovely big rooms, pool is fantastic, beautifully located on the Myall River, easy walk to cafe for breakfast.
    There was a cockroach in the room, however in this part of the world you'd have a difficult time finding accommodation without its share of insects.

    Stayed here for one night whilst in Hawks Nest and we wished we'd stayed for a few more nights. A very modern and spacious apartment, it also had a large balcony overlooking the river and easy access to the pool, whilst still feeling quite private. The living area was large and would have been perfect for entertaining, however we were there for a one-night stay for a couple. The ensuite bathroom had a two person spa bath and the kitchen would have served us well if we hadn't been tempted by the cafe down the road. Having visited the Hawks Nest/Tea Gardens area regularly, the hotel probably has a different feel during peak season but it's lovely for a weekend away during the off season. Beautiful room and great rate from Agoda. (We shopped around for the best price specifically for this hotel.)

    Hi Zhu! Thank you so much for taking the time to review our resort. We're so sorry to hear that the location was not what you were hoping for. Online it does say that we are only a couple of kilometres away from Nelson Bay, unfortunately, this is the distance across water. We do have a ferry that leaves from Tea Gardens to Nelson Bay but that takes an hour which is the same time frame to drive. It is still quite a while away especially when you want a day out. We do hope you choose to come back to Tea Gardens although it is a bit quieter. Thank you Kind Regards, Karen Chen The Boathouse Manager

    Disappointing”

    The rooms were generously sized and tastefully decorated, but the overall experience was extremely disappointing. We had three rooms booked, the first to arrive was given the wrong room and the second to arrive had to wait 15mins in the cold for an answering service to actually answer the phone and provide instructions on the key location (because check-in after 5pm is "after hours" and there are no staff present on site). Between the dead cockroaches, dusty blankets and filthy balcony, you are also required to clean, dry and restock all dishes and remove rubbish yourself to an external rubbish chute yourself lest you be charged a $100 cleaning fee. Completely inconsistent numbers of crockery/glassware - for a three bedroom apartment 1 wine glass is not enough. Hardly a 4 star experience, would not recommend this as a 4 star hotel. Could be improved if the apartments were thoroughly cleaned and stocked and if the phone was actually answered "after hours".

    Pleasant and spacious ”

    The only ‘con’ was arriving at the time we said -6pm- to find no way in or staff! They had emailed instructions earlier in the day but not while we had WiFi to receive it: text would have been more helpful. But once in, large apartment with comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, lounge and huge balcony. Pool excellent, all we wanted for a couple of nights r and r.

    Hi Carol! I'm so sorry you had trouble checking in on your arrival date. As Agoda only supplies us with an email address for our guests, not a phone number, it was the only way to contact you. We will definitely amend this for next time, though! We're glad once you got in everything was to your liking. We hope the hiccup you encountered on checking in will not put you off staying with us again in the future. Thank you so much for taking the time to review our resort as it really does help us improve our customer service. We hope to see you again soon. Thank you Kind Regards, Karen Chen The Boathouse Manager

    One Night Stay”

    Only stopped for one night not arriving until 4.00 pm however have booked to return for a more relaxing stay prior to Christmas. Only saw one member of staff as they were closing reception as we arrived. Had a 3 bedroom apartment very spacious and extremely well equipped if you were staying longer and needed to cook. Beds firm but comfortable furnishings ample and pleasant. Lovely view across resort pool to river. A pleasant walk to hotel and some very good restaurants where we had dinner on the river and breakfast the next morning. Good undercover parking. Overall a very pleasant stay in a lovely spot!!

    Pool view, large unit and friendly staff

    Very nice place and helpful staff, the location has a lot going for it and the pool is very nice, Stuart the manager was helpful and friendly and we only stayed one night but plan to return and enjoy the bike hire in an area that has plenty to see, the river looks spectacular and the availability of fresh seafood is abundant so The BoatHouse is a place well worth visiting.

    There are even golf clubs and surf boards in cupboard

    Lovely hotel, not so busy on a sunday and I recommend your stay during those times. We had a 3 bedrooms unit, the master bed room was fantastic, the only issue is that the bed is two doubles put together. View was commendable and the pool they got was nice.

    Oaks Boathouse - Nicest hotel in Tea Gardens”

    Lovely big rooms, pool is fantastic, beautifully located on the Myall River, easy walk to cafe for breakfast.
    There was a cockroach in the room, however in this part of the world you'd have a difficult time finding accommodation without its share of insects.

    Stayed here for one night whilst in Hawks Nest and we wished we'd stayed for a few more nights. A very modern and spacious apartment, it also had a large balcony overlooking the river and easy access to the pool, whilst still feeling quite private. The living area was large and would have been perfect for entertaining, however we were there for a one-night stay for a couple. The ensuite bathroom had a two person spa bath and the kitchen would have served us well if we hadn't been tempted by the cafe down the road. Having visited the Hawks Nest/Tea Gardens area regularly, the hotel probably has a different feel during peak season but it's lovely for a weekend away during the off season. Beautiful room and great rate from Agoda. (We shopped around for the best price specifically for this hotel.)

    Nice hotel but location is not convenient”

    Hotel is good but location is not near the center of Port stephne, took more than a hour to get there.

    Reviewed February 01, 2018

    Hi Zhu! Thank you so much for taking the time to review our resort. We're so sorry to hear that the location was not what you were hoping for. Online it does say that we are only a couple of kilometres away from Nelson Bay, unfortunately, this is the distance across water. We do have a ferry that leaves from Tea Gardens to Nelson Bay but that takes an hour which is the same time frame to drive. It is still quite a while away especially when you want a day out. We do hope you choose to come back to Tea Gardens although it is a bit quieter. Thank you Kind Regards, Karen Chen The Boathouse Manager

    Disappointing”

    The rooms were generously sized and tastefully decorated, but the overall experience was extremely disappointing. We had three rooms booked, the first to arrive was given the wrong room and the second to arrive had to wait 15mins in the cold for an answering service to actually answer the phone and provide instructions on the key location (because check-in after 5pm is "after hours" and there are no staff present on site). Between the dead cockroaches, dusty blankets and filthy balcony, you are also required to clean, dry and restock all dishes and remove rubbish yourself to an external rubbish chute yourself lest you be charged a $100 cleaning fee. Completely inconsistent numbers of crockery/glassware - for a three bedroom apartment 1 wine glass is not enough. Hardly a 4 star experience, would not recommend this as a 4 star hotel. Could be improved if the apartments were thoroughly cleaned and stocked and if the phone was actually answered "after hours".
