“Fabulous”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

Stayed four nights at the Outrigger Apartments and they are stunning. Reception staff were very obliging, views from the apartment stunning and on top of all this just a short walk to the main street shopping and the man made lagoon which is a great hit with the children after/if they get tired of the apartment pool and playground! Tour buses picked up travellers at the door so this was indeed another bonus.

The Boathouse Apartments by Outrigger are beautiful. The view from the balcony is over a Marina and the location is within walking distance of the main street and lagoon. The only negative is that the second bedroom in the 2br apartment is small. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay.

Wow, these apartments are beautiful and very new. We arrived early from another hotel and was told the apartment wasn't ready which is what we expected. Reception took our contact details and said they would call when it was ready. I've had reception elsewhere make promises like this before so decided not to hold my breath and check out the shops underneath. About twenty minutes later I received the phone call ! What fantastic service.

Walked into the room and the jaw fell to the floor, it was worth every cent.

These apartments are just that though, apartments. You will not find a compendium, room phone (not that I could find), room service, mini bar or a valet service, restricted Reception hours, and you will have to pay to use the internet. Take note also that when you walk into Reception it is not an elaborate foyer as such that you would find in other establishments with a similar rating, but quite simply a desk. There is nothing fancy about it, but I did not have a problem with that. First impressions do count they say, but it kind of made the entry to our apartment all the more pleasurable.

However, you do have a wonderfully contemporary, sparkling clean, spacious, room with a view over the Port of Airlie and/or the ocean. There is a room safe, very well equipped kitchen and washer/dryer. If you want to contact Reception there is a wall intercom in the kitchen and you can call them direct, just don't forget to press the "talk" button.

Downstairs you have a couple of boutique shops, a Coffee Club, Denham Cellars (most AMAZING range of beers, over 100 I think) that also serves as a cafe/bar, and last but definitely not least.....

Cha'mah Morrocan Restaurant. This new fully licensed Restaurant goes down as being one of my most favourite ever. To sum it up, the food was extremely fresh, clean (ie healthy), interesting, and plentiful with reasonable prices. The taster plate for starters at dinner was fabulous and almost a meal in itself! The decor was visually stunning and warm, it would be beautiful for a romantic night out. I do not hesitate in recommending it.

A great stay at the Boathouse, will definitely go back :)

Room Tip: I had a room on the 3rd floor (that's as high as it goes) and had a spectacular view of the ocea...

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review and I never get itred of hearing about good customer service by my staff and glad this small yet important process took the customer service to a point you had been let down with previously.

All apartments should have and I will ensure do have compendiums which does as you point out has key information about the property.

The Restaurants and Bar at the Port of Airlie are doing exceptionally well and glad to hear of your positive experience with both Denman Cellars and ChaMah.

Very glad to also hear youll be back & I look forward to welcoming you back during your next stay at The Boathouse Apartments by Outrigger.

Spent two nights in these stunning, new apartments in February 2012. The development seemed a little out on a limb on arrival but it was literally 3-4 mins walk from the main street in Airlie where there is an abundance of restaurants, bars, shops and other amenities. We were greeted with a warm welcome by the reception team who were extremely helpful in arranging a helicopter flight over the Whitsundays and confirming various other bookings on our behalf. The apartments are beautifully turned out with very tasteful and high quality furnishings and have great views over the harbour. Would highly recommend a stay here for anyone visiting Airlie Beach.

Spent one night here for my birthday. As a travel agent I have stayed in some amazing hotels but this is by far the best hotel I have stayed at in australia. From check in when your greeted by friendly staff to the beautiful apartments. No expensive has been spared in furnishing the fitting then out. Fantastic quality. Like staying in someone's private home with everything you could ever need and more supplied in the room. Well be recommending the boathouse to everyone from now on. A must stay in airlie.
