Our initial impression upon arrival was "Wow, this is awesome" but would we stay again...probably not. We stayed two nights and over this time became aware that the owner was ill and another person was running the boats. This could have explained some of our difficulties. 1. The website said you could pay 50% at booking and 50% the week... More

After reading the reviews we were expecting something more luxurious. We did not see the owners the whole time and on the first night there was an awful storm and the other boat came away from its mooring and was banging into us all night, we contacted the owners in the morning but had to leave a message (twice), nobody...

We have just stayed for the 6th time in 18 months and I have to say we really love staying on the boats. The boats are lovely, home from home, everything is there that you need to make your stay comfortable, even down to little chocolates on your towels when you arrive, lots of little things that add up to...

We stayed in late October as 2 adults and 3 children. We struggled to book with the 5 people online but was easy to do in person over the phone. The boat was really well kept and very clean. We stayed for 2 nights. When we arrived the children's beds weren't made up and I couldn't find any spare duvets.... More

Booked the House Boat Millie Grace as a surprise for my husband. The entire experience from booking with the owners Mel and Mark until having to sadly leave was awesome. The boat is beautiful and easily became our home for the night. The extra Gift Package was lovely. Thank you so much to Mel!! One night is not enough. We... More

We stayed one night in one of the houseboats. We loved the experience so much we wished that we had booked for two! The boat was clean and well kept. The whole experience of being in the boat and being able to look out over the water was relaxing. The Victoria Quay is majestic, especially at night.

We were on a short road trip for my birthday week. I booked a few hotels up North and saw the houseboat in Sheffield and thought it would be a different experience for the night. Wow, it certainly was. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left it was brilliant. Felt completely at home and in such beautiful,... More

Stayed 2 nights on the boat. Never having stayed in such accommodation, the novelty trumped any inconveniences one might feel about living in a cramped space on water instead of land. There was adequate heating on the boat, which made the early autumn weather very bearable on board. Water, tea and coffee drinking facilities available on boat. There is also... More
