“"Best family hoilday so far"”
Reviewed July 30, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We booked a short brake on the Adele Marie of 3 full days and 4 nights. The boat was very comfortable and had great facilities. There was a great shower and toilet with plenty of hot water after a days boating. We have three children aged 5, 8, and 10 Martin provided life jackets for them which were properly sized. At first we were a little concerned that they would find the whole trip boring. The truth was far from it! they loved every minit of it. The wildlife, locks, and jobs to keep the boat ship shape kept them ocupied. Martin was very helpful and made sure we were comfortable with the operations of the boat before he left us. We will be booking again in 2018 and want to lenghten our stay! This is a hoilday which forces you to slow down and stop. Great experiance and would fully recomend it to anyone.

We're over the moon that you all enjoyed it...especially the children. We like to help them see the countryside for what it is...a wonderful place to have fun and to enjoy family life. We very much look forward to you visiting us again in the near future. Best wishes from the FloatingDreams.co.uk team at Nantwich....

“Amazing service and trip”
Reviewed July 16, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I had the pleasure of having a little trip out on this boat yesterday. Martin was such a lovely man who showed me around and took me out for a ride (even let me steer) I would recommend this to anyone who is thinking of having a holiday or a short break to book through this gentleman. Even if you've never done it before Martin is on hand to show you how it's done beforehand. Highly recommended this service and such a lovely boat with everything you need on board

“Terrific Family Experience”
Reviewed June 20, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We just had our second weekend break on Martin's wonderful Adele Marie with our family and Dee, our dog..
It was great. The boat was very well fitted out, beds very comfy, and the boat ran perfectly. The canals were great, the locks were fun - and sociable. We found some nice waterside pubs.
Nantwich is an ideal start point with lots of different directions to choose from.
Martin was extremely helpful and professional in his briefings and even met us to help bring his boat back to the mooring.
We would definitely recommend this experience and we look forward to our next trip on Adele Marie..

It was a pleasure, as always, to have you aboard and we're made up that you enjoyed your 'trip of many locks'....first time Adele Marie had been down that way..I'm sure she enjoyed the change. Looking forward to seeing you again sometime...take care...

“Superb customer service”
Reviewed June 6, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

‘We have used floating dreams before and this was a return trip. The boat has all you need for a comfortable 12/14day break. The new sofa is a welcome addition following a day stood up and doing locks. Martin is helpful and friendly, explaining all you need to know before embarking on your holiday. We had a few electrical issues during our break but Martin was always on the end of the phone, and quickly arranged a marine engineer to meet us and rectify the problem. The customer service from this small company is outstanding and would teach many larger firms a thing or too in this regard. Would I use floating dreams again. Yes. There are still many routes to explore in this wonderful area of the UK.'
