I found this on laterooms, as a business traveller I get bored of the standard box type rooms you get in the hotels. I'm so glad I stumbled on this! BRAND NEW boats decked out immaculately, I met Wendy, the new owner, lovely lady and her husband, who showed me how everything works and made sure there was plenty of water on board so I could shower etc. I sat out on deck, fed the ducks, watched the fish (huge!) swimming around.
Literally a 5 minute walk into the city centre. An idyllic, peaceful setting, with no outside noise, good comfy beds, very spacious and everything catered for if you we're staying longer, cups cutlery etc.
The reviews on here are based on the old boats, these are NEW boats with a great specification.
Book it, you'll not be disappointed"

We stayed on Lily May for an experience. It cost as much as the Holiday Inn express just across the road, although the rooms at holiday inn are far cleaner, quieter, and comes with breakfast. Found the boat not as clean as it could be and appliances did not work. Was not impressed and would not be staying again.

If you are expecting the Ritz forget it but is you are looking for a fun and interesting place to spend the night in the centre of Sheffield and you are of an adventurous nature then Lily May if likely to delight you with its quirkyness!

having read the previous reviews wasn't sure what we would get however it was a fantastic quirky place to stay. If you are open minded and see this for what it is you will be fine. yes there are stains on the blinds but really is that important? are you going to stay in and stare at the blinds? if the answer is yes go stay somewhere else.the bed is really comfortable probably one of the best beds i have slept in. the location is fantastic lovely canal walks and there is a bar right opposite the boat where you can get breakfast, a drink, lunch or tea there is a seating area outside the boat this was wonderful but it is not a hotel, if you want a hotel go somewhere else if you want a unique wonderful place to stay with quirks and is a 5 minute walk into town then go for this.

We decided to take up an offer through Unique Escapes who had a wide choice of different and "Unique" accomodation on offer. I'd always wanted to stay on a barge so we opted for this stay. Finding the place was a bit of a strugle but once found and got in it was warm and cozy
I wasn't overly impressed with the inside of the boat, a bit old and tired looking. the seating area is slightly raised up and this just lead to us always tripping on it, the seats too could be repaced with ones that are deeper as it wasn't too comfy.
We did use the wood burner but the glass in this is broken and seems to have been for a while and i think that is dangerous
The amount of cobwebs on the boat were too much for my liking too! don't worry i cleaned them off
I would love it if there was a propper welcome pack in the barge, showing where to go and what was in the area.
We did have a good wee stay and it snowed on the morning of our trip.

Over all If this was given a refurb inside i would love to come back

Room Tip: You only get one room no choise
