A different experience!”

The quirkiness of the property &amp; close location to an amazing restaurant.
It was a bit chilly due to only heating being 2 fan heaters.

Disappointing”

The location
The toilet was not flushing properly, and despite attempting to contact the owner on .multiple occasions, they did not reply to me. Hence the toilet did not get fixed!

It&#39;s a narrowboat, you either like it or you don&#39;t. We found we did not. It had been raining for a while and there was a water leak right onto the bed in the bedroom we were allocated. ...
Luckily the boat was not occupied by anyone else when we stayed,

This a real novelty value place to stay, the location can’t be faulted, really close to everything for a city visit dining out etc. A unique experience.
It can be very cold in winter. What you can’t knock is how romantic the boat is &amp; the location.

Cute boat central location”

Excellent check in, super friendly. The boat is really central and such a cute little marina. Kitchen available and they provide soya milk and tea. Fun place to stay.
Rooms are small but it is a narrow boat! Perhaps a little overpriced but is a fun place to stay as something different in central location.

Great location and special place - is a canal boat and a unique experience
I loved it but a narrowboat will not be for everyone and should not be compared to a standard hotel room
