“Lovely boat, friendly staff”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Just got back from a week on the Llangollen canal in 'Spruce'. Lots of room, comfy beds, very , clean, central heating and as much hot water as we needed. Also no hidden costs like diesel or pumping out. The staff were very helpful and we had no problems with the boat. I thoroughly recommend this is as a great family holiday.

“Cold, old,dirty & NOT fit for purpose.”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

If course we had a good time. Battling through adversity on WILLOW. Hopefully the old narrow boat will have been removed to the lock in the sky and the remainder of the Middlewich fleet steaming fast towards her final destination. I doubt even the late Fred Dibner would have attempted to save her from her eventual fate.

Poorly maintained. Uncomfortable. On our return at the end of a week the staff did not want to hear our displeasure.

Steer your course in the opposite direction.
