The only good thing going for it is the location. We remember the restaurant from previous occasions as serving excellent food and we booked a table for an anniversary dinner but ended up walking out without our dinner due to the poor staff service and attitude. The motel badly needs a makeover and the electrics in our room at least were quite dangerous (exposed live power points on power boards, flickering lights etc

For three star accomodation the Boat Harbour is a perfectly fine place to stay for a short stay. The room was clean and the location of the Boat Harbour was great.
