We decided to give the Boathouse a try after passing it a few times, and did not realise what a lovely setting it was in. on a good day you can sit out by the waterfront, having a drink and eating great food. The only disappointing part was the time we had to wait for service, I know it was... More

We were camping at the marina next door and thought we’d try the Boathouse out, as it was such a lovely evening and the location and gardens were beautiful. What a mistake! I don’t know what had gone on that day, but from start to finish it was a disaster. On entry, no one came to ask us if we’d... More

Having arrived for a lovely lunch on a beautifal day, me and my family were more than dissappointed. The food was beyond a joke! i swear the chef just didnt have a clue what he was doing. The fish was not cooked, the chicken cakes was a discrace. I mean does the chef actually test the food to see what... More

What a wonderful stay. We had a balcony room, the views were just stunning. The staff were so lovely and helpful. We ate here too, I had the salmon Papillote and my partner had the chicken supreme, both were absolutely delicious. Service food and accommodation were A*. We spent the bank holiday Monday here too. There was such a lovely... More

Where to start. Came here for lunch today to meet friends. The location is lovely but that is about it! Ordered food and the bar staff were pretty rude. Half the stuff on the menu wasn't available and taking my order seemed to be a real annoyance to the guy behind the bar. Food arrived, didn't even check if it... More

I visited here with friends last night. The service was very poor, staff not very friendly. We almost felt we were a nuisance being there. Each time we went to the bar we had to wait several minutes, waitress staff saw us but no one apologised for the wait and we just had to wait till a member of bar... More

Stayed here for 3 nights for my 50th birthday, nice room with balcony overlooking the canal, with stunning views. Had high hopes for this hotel as the hotel, room and views look so perfect, but all was not as we thought it would be. We had quite a few complaints and now we have re-read the trip advisor reviews we... More

Myself and 4 friends met for Sunday lunch. As we all worked together in Bath 20 odd yrs ago we decided to go back to the boathouse. We arranged to meet at 12 to eat at 1pm. When I arrived at 12.10 we were shown immediately to our table in an empty area. We were joined by several other parties... More

We stayed at the Boathouse for 2 nights last week,as part of our trip around the UK. It is a lovely place and the location is beautiful. Meals were good to. Sadley though, the reviews from others regarding the bar staff are true. We also waited up to 15 minutes to be served a drink, only to be overlooked and... More
