We stayed for one evening, what a delight.
The boat was small and cosy but plenty of room for 2. Secure parking and location meant that we were not disturbed.
Very clean and cannot fault the breakfast package Mel had left.
Will definitely use again.

We were here to meet friends from Spain, and needed somewhere to meet/ have a drink and this was it! Absolutely fantastic place to stay, beautifully finished and very quiet, yet central. We need more of these round the country!

Was really looking forward to this stay on the boat as we have never done it before, It was supposed to be a surprise for my girlfriend I booked and paid for our trip online. A few hours later i was telephoned to say it was double booked and asked if wanted to book a hotel.close by I felt really let down. It was ment to be something diffrent. Maybe try and book again but the shine has been taken away.

We had a smart box voucher for unusual breaks what an excellent choice the boat was lovely and clean. You can park your car right next to the boat. Inside the boat is all you need and more for a special short break warm and cosy :):)
The boats are moored in a lovely quite area and close to the city centre
"Must stay longer next time" thank you

This was our second visit in three months and I have to say Mel and Mark just keep excelling themselves. The boats are new and modern, very clean and very tidy. This time we stayed for longer, we just can't get enough of the boat and it's amazing location, in fact we are about to book again for three more weekends next year. From the moment we arrive we want for nothing, Mel and Mark provide everything from towels to shampoo, dishcloths to washing up liquid, even little chocolates placed on your towels. The boats are lovely situated in a lovely little quay with a bar/restaurant just to one side and a sandwich shop to the other side. Less than 5 minutes walk and your in Sheffield city centre. If you feel you'd like a break away with a difference please give this a try I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. Its my little hide away holiday, I love it and know that you will too!

We booked to stay on lily may, but just before we arrived we found out that there were new owners with their own new boats. I have to say that the new owners Mel and Mark gave us such a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. The two new boats are amazing, very comfortable and everything you need is there. The Quays Bar 1819 is just a few steps away from the boat, but the area is still very quiet, the spa facilities at the Hilton Hotel is also a few steps away. I would recommend these boats to anyone and we enjoyed it so much we've booked again for September. We stayed for three nights with the intention of going out and about in Sheffield, but we enjoyed the boat that much we didn't venture further than the immediate area. Please give these boats a try for a break with a difference you won't be disappointed.

This 'hotel' is a must do if you are in the area. We booked an overnight stay on board house boat hotels for something different to do. How fortunate we were to find that the business had been bought by Mel very recently and 2 absolutely fab boats had been introduced. The boat we were in is stunning. It is extremely clean and really well equipped. All reviews prior to June 2013 are likely to relate to the old boats and previous owners - do not pay these reviews any heed. House boat hotels is fantastic and I definitely recommend it - we look forward to coming back soon. Thanks for a fab stay
