Date of Stay 26/07/14 We booked a 3 night stay on a river boat at York Marina. Having spent childhood holidays there, its something I wanted to do, spend a family holiday there. It was just perfect. The boat was lovely, really clean, the staff were great, and we loved sailing up and down the river. We had our 2... More

We stayed at York Marine Services this weekend in the motorhome and had a fantastic time. The site warden is lovely, very helpful and friendly, the facilities are clean with newly built toilet and showers along with laundry room. The site is located a few minutes walk from Bishopthorpe with its three cracking pubs within a stones throw of each... More

Stayed for the bank holiday weekend with friends (2 tents & a caravan). The site was very 'tired' and looked scruffy. I thought that the facilities were adequate, but only just - with only around 10 or so pitches occupied, I'm guessing it would be manic if the site had been full. Pitch spaces seemed restricted as people with caravans... More

This is a slight aside to a review about York Marine Services, as I sing the praises of The Happy Camper catering van on the site. From a vintage American Airstream trailer a variety of fresh snacks are made and served to boaters, campers and the public at large. I enjoy walking from central York to the village of Bishopthorpe,... More

I would recommend York Marine Services to anybody. We had HALF DAY Boat hire for up to 6 people cruising up and down the river. The boat was easy to drive & steer and everybody had a turn driving. A fun half day had by all.

i hired a barge for a mid week break with York marine services. they give you enough fuel and cooking gas and show you how to skipper the boat and off you go. the river barge has more space than a caravan and has a dvd tv with only two sockets for 240v and you can not use more than... More

This was our first canal boat trip and after researching the Internet and struggling to find information from frankly appalling websites, we found York Marine Services. Tyler and the team where friendly, helpful and couldn't have done more to make us feel happy and confident about our trip. The boat was amazing with a clean modern interior and loads of... More

Our broadbeam boat was in excellent condition and everything was very, very clean. The pre trip training covered all we needed to know in a friendly but clear and concise way. We couldn't fault the owners or staff in any way, their helpfulness and friendly approach made the holiday even more enjoyable. Would suggest more fenders to protect the boat... More
