We're from Sheffield bug stayed here for our wedding anniversary. Instructions were great. Parking right next to the barge. Found we had not hot water when we got there but found the heater switch and had loads for the morning. Really warm and cosy and had a nice cup of tea, listening to the rain beat down, under the awning... More

Although we didnt expect to be welcomed in person - our detailed email instructions for directions and access gave us a very good impression of the standard we could expect. We were not disappointed. The houseboat was very clean and well presented. Lots of cooking/dining equipment which we made good use of even though we stayed for only one night.... More

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.
