Your recent holiday on Eagle - Spotted Eagle from Union Wharf

The stairs down into the boat had very course sandpaper as a non slip effort..everyone came away with nasty grazes.. The man who gave us the safety talk took an hour and a half!. Surely an hour too long..however nice he was. Otherwise it was all lovely..well equipped kitchen..

Your recent holiday on Lark - Black Lark from Worcester

It was a happy week for us, adults and children. The countryside is beautiful and the towns/cities were interesting. The boat Black Lark was perfect - except that the water refill hose had no screw end, so we had to stand pushing it into the taps for some 10 minutes each time.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such lovely feedback! We're so pleased to hear that you had a happy week hiring from Worcester despite the problem with the hose. We very much hope to see you aboard again soon.

Your recent holiday on Wide Beam - Sanderling from Falkirk

We had an amazing trip. The boat was spotless and in excellent repair. We had one small issue with the shower draining and ABC was there immediately to fix it. There is a great briefing at the beginning that told us not only the features of the boat and tips on driving but suggested places to stay and eat (and places not to) along the route.

Your recent holiday on Warbler - Lucy's Warbler from Whitchurch Marina

The most beautiful boat I have been on in 40 years of narrow-boating! The boat was well-equipped and comfortable, and the marina staff were prompt and helpful to get us underway. Although our family were experienced boaters I am sure that novices would be well looked-after. The Marina was also prompt to respond and send someone out to fix a problem with a loose fender when we called them. The Llangollen Canal was as beautiful as we had hoped too. Altogether all the ingredients for a great narrow-boat holiday.

Carolyn

What lovely feedback, thank you! It is fantastic to hear that you were so pleased with the Warbler and all of its facilities. We're glad that our staff at Whitchurch were effective in response to your problem and you found their services useful! We agree, the routes from Whitchurch really are beautiful and relaxing. We hope to welcome you back again soon!

Your recent holiday on Lark - Sky Lark from Falkirk

Boat was well equipped and the induction very comprehensive. Helped us out when one of our friends cracked her ankle even before we boarded! Staff are great craic and the boat facilities were better than we've had in some hotels! Everyone we met on the Wheel and beyond was friendly and helpful. Reception on arrival was welcoming and informative. Just check the dimensions on some of the "winding" points, especially f you are trying to turn a 60 ft boat around ! We had a great time and would recommend highly

Your recent holiday on Finch - Red Headed Finch from Goytre Wharf

The Mon & Brec is a truly beautiful canal but not relaxing as you are in constant risk of going aground as it is a very shallow canal. The banks are very overgrown as are a lot of the bridges which makes lining up to go through a bit tricky! The ABC staff at Goytre were, without exception really brilliant. Handing back the boat after our holiday left a bit to be desired because the warf was v busy and very little room to manoeuvre. ☺
