We stayed for just one night on the boat as we were in Sheffield to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. What a find! The boat is immaculately presented and has everything on board for a comfortable stay even including good quality toiletries and fluffy towels. We arrived by train and it is just 10 minutes walk from the station. The... More

Came across this by accident and what luck. Had a great few days on 'Millie Grace', something very different, kids loved it too. A wide beam boat so was very comfortable, cafe 'Victoria Junction' a few paces away was brill so no need to cook....order breakfast and they bring it over. 5 mins walk into Sheffield City Centre or Tram...

Just returned from our 4th stay within a year, we love everything about the boats, they are beautiful, such a lovely peaceful place to be, plenty to do by, just 5 minutes walk from the city centre. A fantastic cafe called Victoria Junction is very close by, wonderful breakfasts, lunches and cakes, jill and her staff are very friendly and... More

We stayed here for one night as we were going to a gig at the Motorpoint Arena, yes - we could have paid a bit less for a bland city centre hotel but the few extra pounds were worth it for the experience! I was beaming from our arrival at Millie Grace - a fab boat: clean, comfortable, cosy and... More

I stayed on the Laila Mae houseboat for 2 nights. The location is great and surprisingly quiet. The houseboat was fantastic in every way and offered so much more freedom and independence than any hotel. Although there is no wifi, there is good reception for BT accounts! It was good to have use of the gym and spa facilities at... More

Like others, we stayed here because it is different to the usual city centre hotels. Located very near Sheffield's city centre, on an old Victorian canal wharf, which is part of a British waterways canal basin, it is an ideal spot. We stayed two days and nights in lovely sunny weather. There is a small cafe alongside for lovely bacon... More

We had just returned after 5 lovely days on these amazing boats. This is our 3rd visit in 8 months and each time we go, it just keeps getting better and better. The owner Mel is lovely and takes care of your every need, nothing is too much trouble. The boats are very new and modern beautiful inside and out.... More

When we found out our friend was getting married in Sheffield, we wanted to stay somewhere different, so when i came across this houseboat on the internet i knew it was perfect for us. The houseboat is well priced and accommodated four of us comfortably. The owner Mel had contacted me on the day of arrival to ensure we had... More

Booked as a rare romantic night away from the children. We enjoyed every minute. I would suggest that the bad reviews are ignored as they are likely to apply to the previous older boats. The two boats on offer are very modern and very clean. Mel also left us a bottle of wine that we were not expecting. Parking outside,... More

I decided to stay with House Boat Hotels as part of a birthday treat with partner and friends and did not know what to expect! On arrival on the Quay (accessible by barrier) we immediately felt at home as the area is really nice and very serene, the boat itself has adequate parking and with its blue and cream livery... More
