I was very enthusiast when I booked this B&B for my man's birthday. Although the boat was very cute, we missed a lot in this B&B. The first and most important thing was the way our host welcomed us in her B&B: there was no welcome at all. We had the impression we bothered her with our presence. No enthusiasm, no friendliness whatsoever. Same the next morning at breakfast. A small 'morning, would you like coffee or tea' and that was it. She disappeared in her private quarters and only came back to open the door again. When we left she took the keys and didn't even botherd to ask us if we had a nice stay. Is it only the cash that matters?!
As said the boat was very nice. Although basics where not present. We didn't have a warm shower, since the other guests showered a little to long. Very little light in the bathrooms, no power-point present in the bathroom, which was very unpleasant to prepare yourself since the room didn't provide a mirror (except for the teeny-tiny one where you had to sit on the floor to take a look). Yes we women like to prepare ourselves in a decent way :)
I understand that it is a boat, but please don't charge that amount of money if you can't be friendly or if basic comfort is not present. Aesthetics are important, but please do think of the comfort of your guests as well. And smile, that costs nothing, but it makes your guest happier.
