Wonderful stay on beautiful houseboat
We had a great two night stay on this houseboat in July 2019. There was plenty of space for all five of us. The owners had thought of everything and included special touches for our arrival including a food basket and bottle of bubbly. This houseboat is a very short walk to the Shambles, and other tourist areas. Would definitely recommend this to everyone!
40th Birthday treat
I cannot rate this accommodation high enough, we debated a length where to stay for my nieces 40th birthday (4 of us) then found this gem. It was such a wonderful experience that we will treasure and hope to return again next year. My advice to anyone thinking of booking, don't hesitate to book it you will not regret staying at such a great place. Maggie was super helpful as was Ken regarding our arrival/departure etc.
Beautiful, central, comfortable and fun
Can't imagine a nicer place for our family of 5 to stay in York. Ridiculously central yet so quiet and relaxing staying on the water.
Felt so luxurious on this very well appointed and spacious vessel.
Kids and adults alike loved it.
Host was very attentive and offered assistance wherever he could.
Thanks Darren for the wonderful review.
Honest guest reviews help future customers decide to book the houseboat instead of a conventional home.
Easy check-in experience and Ken was very helpful.
Fantastic location and boat was immaculately clean, we had a fantastic time and the deck was a great place to enjoy the sun.
Would definitely recommend!
thanks for the brilliant review.
We would love for you to book again with us.
PS; Please send your review to all you social media friends
Kindest regards Ken
Fabulous short break
Myself and 5 friends rented the boat for a weekend stay. It was lovely. The boat is beautiful, the height of luxury. Well equipped, fully functioning kitchen and laundry facilities if you require. Comfortable beds with lovely linens. The whole place was decked out to high quality hotel standard. Only minor complaint we had was that we couldn't get the TV to work. (May have been down to us). Didn't report it though as we spent very little time wanting TV, it was just to play music through really. Possibly some instructions may be of use.
We were left a hamper with beautiful food in and a bottle of prosecco to enjoy. A lovely touch.
Would highly recommend and will definitely book again!
Just back from an amazing stay on this houseboat with friends. The boat itself is fabulous, really well equipped and appointed. Everything you could want is there. The welcome basket was a lovely touch especially the bottle of fizz. The boat is in a great location. We would recommend it to anyone and would certainly consider returning.
