Went on a Saturday lunch time. Unfortunately the canal boat broke down. Meals were served on the boat. Service and meals were very satisfactory. The hotel only charged for the meals at restaurant prices. No charge was made for the boat trip. We were disappointed with regard to the boat trip because it was booked as part of a birthday...

I was on a hen night in Chester and this was a lovely way to start the night. Lovely food and a nice leisurely cruise down the canal. The staff were all great and we really enjoyed the experience.

Great idea. Leisurely cruise on the canal, both ways from the hotel. Attentive staff and good food. Informative commentary. Open for lunch and evening. Tip - if you go in the evening and want to see the sights,, go in the summer months as you cant see much in the dark! Will definately di it agsin - highly recommended.

What an unusual experience to be able to cruise a wide berth canal boat whilst enjoying a nice meal and a bottle of wine. Whilst the canal in this location is not the prettiest it does not matter as you sit is comfort and with a decent atmosphere. If you visit Chester then give this a try as it really... More

Spent a lovely evening dining on this lovely boat. Service was excellent, food was delicious and boat ride was lovely. Shame it was an evening in October as it was dark so we couldn't see much, but I will definitely be coming back again during daylight hours - either during the summer when it's still light in the evenings or...

Spent a very pleasant evening on the boat, food was 1st rate, and staff very good, just a pity it was dark not much to see, but then again the food was distracting enough to occupy us anyway

For less than £25 a head for Sunday lunch including drinks, a delicious four course generously portioned meal plus coffee and chocolate and a canal cruise, lasting almost 3 hours all together, we thought this was superb value. The captain is a great character and the waiting staff were efficient and polite. Excellent. It is such a treat to find... More
