Brilliant location near great restaurants and lovely scenery, and we had an enjoyable boat trip to have dinner, the sports cruiser was comfortable and everyone very helpful and friendly, was very impressed with the towels on our beds shaped as swans, looked amazing, The cruiser is very cosy and I would definitely recommend it to couples, even in the winter.

“Excellant Getaway”
Reviewed October 28, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Situated close to Hampton Court and bus routes to Kingston Upon Thames we found everything we needed at our fingertips.
The cleanliness and layout of the boat was definitely noticed. Luxuries not found on other vessels included wifi and sky TV as well as central heating and tender boats.
Highly recommended getaway for anyone that enjoys luxury and pampering.

“Awesome accommodation experience in picturesque Hampton Court !”
Reviewed October 1, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Really different and fun alternative to staying on the river Thames. Riverscapes has awesome, fresh and well presented boats that are great fun to stay on while visiting and enjoying the sights of Hampton Court. Loved it !

“The perfect place and an easy way to feel like a millionaire!”
Reviewed September 15, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Super location, really interesting area, so much to see and do. Quaint railway station to get to central London. Loved the Palace down the road too! Really good restaurants in the town too - so much choice and such little time.
Natasha was friendly and helpful and nice teeth too!

Our first stay on a boat on the Thames but definitely not our last! Idyllic setting and very comfortable boat. We were lucky with beautiful weather and really enjoyed the barbecue in the evenings. We had too much to see and do nearby to find time to use the electric boat which was included in the rent. Natasha and Klaus could not have been more pleasant and helpful and the whole experience was most enjoyable. Could not recommend it enough. If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary this is something to consider. We will be back in the future for a longer stay.
