“Amazing amazing amazing”
Reviewed October 19, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Amazing is all we can say. The Owl is an amazing boat. The canal is amazing and the area and the pubs were fantastic. We took Owl out for a birthday treat. We did a leisurely trip up to Tal-y-bont. The company had provided everything and the boat was immaculate and very comfortable. A 5ft bed on a barge is unheard of but encouraged us to get this boat because it had a hot tub at the front too! Again we had never heard of this on a hire boat before. The staff were excellent including the coffee and flapjack to start with. The extensive range of DVDs to borrow were fantastic and the bow thrusters were a first for us. We have already rebooked another bigger boat for October next year and can't wait. Loved it. Thank you.

“The "Eagle" has landed.”
Reviewed October 14, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Wonderful, relaxing family holiday on "Eagle". Beautiful scenery with the trees displaying vibrant autumn colours, the sun glistening on the water and the backdrop of the mountains. All we needed was provided on the barge. Excellent service by very friendly staff. The warmest of welcomes and the cheeriest of goodbyes. Really enjoyed the flapjacks and mugs of tea at the beginning and end of our holiday.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed October 10, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We have just spent a glorious week with friends on board Condor, which was so well designed for two couples. Very well equipped, luxury toiletries, towels and bedding. Spotlessly clean and comfortable.
As first time boaters we found the hand over and initial tuition was superb and we very quickly settled into the easy canal pace of life.
I would recommend this company to anyone considering a canal boat holiday, they have a very professional approach, lots of experience and a friendly manner.
We will certainly return.

“Fantastic relaxing holiday”
Reviewed October 10, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

South Wales is such a beautiful place to explore and to do it on a canal boat just
puts the icing on the cake.
Raglan Castle, Crickhowell, Abergavenny, Brecon and the river Usk are just a few of the great places to discover. We got to see all sorts of wildlife including Rabbits, Squirrels, Buzzards, Ducks, Swans and even Kingfisher along the way.
The boat we hired at beacon Park Boats was the Grouse, A fantastic luxury of space and lovely, dare I say it, 5 star finishing throughout the boat with my favourite being the kitching, with Microwave, Toaster, double Fridge, big Five Ring Gas Stove incl. Gas Grill and Oven, not to forget the extra large Extractor fan with lights. The pictures of the Grouse on the website are good but in real life everything looks even better.
The Boat itself though it is 60ft long it handels realy well and after a very short time we had mastered it and were in full controll,
I chose this boat for its size and space inside as there was four of us
( two couples), and nobody was disappointed.
We had a realy great time and we are already planing our next trip
Thank you very much Beacon Park Boats.

“Great ho!iday”
Reviewed October 10, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We rented buzzard for one week on 30th September 2017. What a beautiful boat to spend a week on, very comfortable and the attention to detail was second to none. We have been on 3 canal holidays now and can honestly say this was the best boat we have experienced for comfort and luxury. The canal can be testing at times as very shallow in parts, scenery and setting make up for this though.

“Mr”
Reviewed October 10, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had an excellent time on our holiday which included a friend with mobility issues; staff were extremely helpful, promising (and not forgetting) extra means of access and more convenient and accessible mooring both on outward and return. The boat was very well equipped and the odd gremlin we experienced was to do with the canal trust and not the boat. However, when called upon we had willing help from staff. As an introduction to canal boating the paperwork and dvd was comprehensive tho a little daunting, but we quickly mastered locks and tunnel! Slept well and relaxed so much we kept loosing track of days, and seeing kingfishers was the icing on the cake!

We are thrilled that we were able to provide all you needed for a super holiday on the canal. Glad, too, that the kingfisher put in an appearance near your boat. We hope to welcome you back in the future.
