Thank you for your feedback. Customers are welcome to visit our Marina's and take a look inside our boats. We are not sure why you were unable to book the boat that you were shown around, perhaps it was unavailable? We hope you enjoyed your holiday and hope to see you again soon.

Your recent holiday on Eagle - Golden Eagle from Worcester

Remarks by two regular canal hire boat users forty years plus experience Much improved Heads Excellent beds Utilities good Overall layout good but much wall space could be used for storage especially in berths Why lose space with out of date maps of a canal system when shelves and a slim cupboard would be better use of the space? Staff helpful and informative Unusual intermittent engine problem Cleanliness of some crockery dubious Storage needs rethink

Your recent holiday on Duck - Long Tailed Duck from Whitchurch Marina

Great boat (only 6 months old) so in really nice condition. Comfortable and clean. Llangollen canal brilliant with only a couple of locks either way (although getting into Llangollen when busy would be interesting as there are a couple of one-way sections). We had a brilliant week with friends stopping in Chirk, Llangollen and Ellesmere. Absolutely recommend the location and ABC boat hire @ Whitchurch.

Your recent holiday on Eagle - Spotted Eagle from Union Wharf

As always the ABC staff were really cheerful, friendly and efficient. Also as boat wasn’t out the day before, they let us pick it up a little early.

Your recent holiday on Lark - Sun Lark from Hilperton

Our third holiday on this class of vessel, layout ideally suited to our needs (two couples) and Boat very well equipped. Enjoyed first trip on Kennet & Avon in glorious weather and very scenic. Would have welcomed better instruction re mooring on return, other than that the handover was very good and thorough.

Your recent holiday on Thrush - Swainsons Thrush from Hilperton

All fine - handling of our emergency was good and reassuring. We were very frustrated by the wi-fi when one had to register every time you connected to it ( name, email address and agree T&C's) such a nuisance and is enough to make us look elsewhere for our next boating holiday. Pity as otherwise we thought boat was great, your staff were great and the canal magical.
