Your recent holiday on Tyne - Bryn from Rugby Wharf

Very well organized at the Rugby Warf, they made us welcome and swiftly moved thru the on-hire paper work and details. The boat was very clean, everything worked. We had a great time and I wholeheartedly would recommend this type of holiday to anyone who wants a bit of an adventure.........but not too much of an adventure.

Your recent holiday on Weaver - Orange Weaver from Falkirk

The boat and the staff at ABC were excellent, we just wish they had told us to go to the Kelpies before the Falkirk wheel, had we gone the opp way round we could probably have sailed to Edinburgh, cos once you have seen the Kelpies there is not much to do down there. As it was we were booked onto the wheel first, but we would highly recommend that the Kelpies is the first port of call.

The Marina staff at Falkirk book everyone into the queue for the Wheel on the day of arrival to ensure that they have a place but you aren't tied to this and can choose to go to the Kelpies. You may have been advised to go to Edinburgh first because of restrictions coming back through the wheel and to make sure you would be able to bring the boat back on time. We would always advise calling the Marina before the start of your holiday if you would like route information in advance. We hope you will be back for another holiday with us again soon!

Your recent holiday on Eagle - Golden Eagle from Worcester

The Golden Eagle felt new with all the mod cons, two toilets & showers that worked well for us and the 3 grandchildren. Being first time boaters and Aussies in the UK the Collins/ Nicholson Guide was a life line for confidence. A couple of folding camp chairs and a large shade umbrella would have been handy or available for hire had we know the weather was so hot last week.

Your recent holiday on Eagle - Sea Eagle from Hilperton

Second time I have used this canal hire company and enjoyed the same superb service. The boat was great and everything worked as it should. Needed their help on the second day and got advice on the out-of-hours number and then full resolution the following day. Professional, courteous and efficient booking staff, shop staff, cleaners and engineers. Highly recommended.

Your recent holiday on Eagle - Osprey Eagle from Wrenbury

We are experienced boat owners and hirers when our NZ family accompany us. We were impressed with the quality and comprehensive equipment. The cleanliness of the boat. Booking was easy, check-in straightforward, and the boat was a dream to steer, even in reverse! We were particularly impressed by the teamwork by the boatyard staff. Although the video, lock demonstration, was aimed at novices, we understand and appreciate it's importance.

Carolyn

Thank you for the fantastic feedback for Wrenbury! What a lovely way to catch up with family and make memories together. We hope you will all be back for another holiday with us again soon.

Your recent holiday on Kestrel - Common Kestrel from Gailey Wharf

The boat was all it was promised to be, altohough 8it was very difficult to start in the morning - reported to your engineers on return. The water level was very low in some places, I realise there is nothing you can do about it but it was not possible to pass boats without grounding at those points, requiring quite some effort to refloat. Overall we had a really enjoyable holiday though.

30 Jul 2018

Carolyn

Thank you for your feedback. We do offer a 24 hour call out engineer service so had you been more concerned about starting the engine one of our team would have been on hand to help. The water levels have been affected by the prolonged heatwave but we do expect this to improve now that we have had some rain. We hope to see you again soon.

Your recent holiday on Goose - Upland Goose from Gailey Wharf

As always, the boat was super prepared, clean, well stocked and with all that we needed. The staff at Gailey are always friendly and welcoming, and as we had been with them 3 weeks earlier, remembered us and treated us like one of the family. The boat was lovely, and although at 69ft was a tough challenge on some of the bends on the Staffs and Worcester, we had amazing weather and a lovely time.

It is lovely to hear that our staff at Gailey marina were so welcoming for you and your crew! We're glad you enjoyed your time cruising on our Upland Goose and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
