Your recent holiday on Wren - House Wren from Gailey Wharf

Good reception, comprehensive introduction and very helpful, patient staff. The boat was in excellent condition, all necessary was available. The living area was clean and fresh laundry could be taken along as much as desired.

Your recent holiday on Gull - Herring Gull from Alvechurch

We had a great holiday! Great advice on route from person at the marina. However, we had to wait a long time for the boat to be ready and then the handover took ages, considering that we were a very experienced crew and had been on the exact same boat from one of your other bases the previous year.

Your recent holiday on Thrush - American Thrush from Gayton

Overall, an excellent holiday. There were some minor issues with the boat, one of which we discovered (and was fixed) before we set off, the other two of which we only noticed during the holiday and were reported on return.

Your recent holiday on Kestrel - American Kestrel from Gailey Wharf

The service provided in the boatyard is as good and as friendly and helpful as you will find anywhere. I have hired boats from Gaily before and would willingly do so again.

Your recent holiday on Swallow - Red Rumped Swallow from Goytre Wharf

We loved the relaxed journey and the wonderful scenery, plenty of places to stop on our way to Brecon, not to mention the odd canal side pub.

Your recent holiday on Swan - Black Necked Swan from Anderton

We had a lovely time. The boat was in good working order with nice little touches added (A copy of a Book of British birds, for example). It fitted the whole crew of 10 and there was plenty of deck space for us all. Steering was good and the engine was nearly new. Nothing broke down/wasn't to expectations. Routes out of the boatyard were good for beginners and not too many locks if that is not your thing.
