We had a great night in January on that boat. The owner was waiting for us, as was arranged . she is a lovely girl. The place was cozy and ready for us to use. Very close to tesco and restaurants, but you will find more then you think necessarily staff on the boat. Will come back there with my... More

This was an ideal location in Central Edinburgh in a quiet area. The boat was equipped with everything you could need including a powerful shower and a well stocked kitchen. It wouldn't be for anyone with mobility issues due to the steep steps into the boat but beds were comfortable and central heating was very effective. It was a nice... More

Unusual choice of hotel accommodation but really fantastic! Friendly, helpful owner. Luxury place to stay in heart of Edinburgh. Had a great time with three friends. Will definitely book again. Everything you need was provided, even had a Christmas tree and a poinsettias plant, very festive.

This is a superb location in a quiet safe area within walking distance to Princes Street. Cafes and restaurants around the corner and supermarkets too. Your every need is catered for, clean, comfortable and cosy. We stayed 2 nights and would happily stay again. This experience is a must to try, very highly recommended.

We stayed as a group of four adults and two kids for rugby/shopping weekend. Excellent location within walking distance of the Old Town, Princes Street and Murrayfield. The boat is full of character plus it's equipped and serviced to a high standard. There is a Tesco Express round the corner and I can recommend Loudens Cafe for breakfast. Zizzis is... More

My sister in law booked this boatel for 1 night for my niece's birthday. They stayed overnight whilst we attended for the evening. What a lovely boat. Everything was thought about and all the finishing touches were there - even a hairdryer and straightners. All areas were lovely and spotlessly clean. Have stayed on a boat like this before and...

Walkable distance to all you need to see in the city centre, nice canal boat with all you need. Wifi was a little poor and it was cold during the night but it was Nov and there was ice on the water. You have shops etc very close by all in all we had a great time.

The boat is advertised as 4 star luxury self catering accommodation so we were expecting a very high standard of cleanliness bedding towels etc. however on arrival the first thing we noticed was a horrible smell at the front of the boat, and very sticky dirty floors and surfaces. Not at all like the photos on the website. We contacted... More

A really great base for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Not far to walk to the centre of Edinburgh, loads of good cafes and restuarants nearby. Quite magical staying on a narrowboat in the middle of a city.
