Your recent holiday on Gull - Laughing Gull from Anderton

The layout of the boat was really user friendly. The marina was excellent . Service and attention to detail on board was super, however, the bedding could do with a new lease of life and the vacuum cleaner stank and needed a good clean - not what I want to spend my holiday weekend doing. We cleaned the floors and made the boat smell so bad that I didn’t want to use it again to hand back the boat. Otherwise a super experience which I would definitely recommend

Nobody wants to clean on a bank holiday and it's really disappointing to hear that the vacuum hadn't be emptied before your holiday. It's great that you were happy with all other aspects of your holiday and pleased with the service from Anderton Marina. It's lovely to know that you would also recommend us to your friends! We hope to see you again soon.

Your recent holiday on Plover - Piping Plover from Reedley Marina

Would have been 5 stars if some form of canal chart had been available. Prepared to pay for a proper one but a photocopied sketch would have done.

Maps and guides are available to buy at the time of booking as well as from our Marina's. We also give our customers the option of the ABC App which can be download to your phone and will help with route information and local amenities whilst cruising. Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback and we hope to see you again soon!

Your recent holiday on Weaver - Village Weaver from Aldermaston Wharf

First time boating, loved it. Boat well equipped, very clean. Could have done with a little bit more hands on 'how to' with manoeuvring the boat/locks but we worked it out in the end.

Thank you for your feedback, as every crew varies it can be difficult to gauge how much instruction is required during your handover but we're pleased to hear that with a bit of practice you were able to work it out! We hope you will be back for another holiday with us again soon.

Your recent holiday on Eagle - Booted Eagle from Anderton

Toilet flodded boat with sewage due to the fact that one of the tanks had not been pumped out, when spoke to girl at Anderton marina for assistance was she would call back (still waiting for call). Depot we located to pump out was clsoed for day and we had to suffer the smell of raw sewage in the boat late saturday and in to Sunday where we sourced a pump out station and paid £20.00 for the service.

Your recent holiday on Thrush - Blue Rock Thrush from Hilperton

We were a group of 5 ladies who had never been on a barge before. We hired the Blue Rock Thrush for a long weekend break from Hilperton Marina. Before we set off, we had all watched the DVD and were given extremely thorough technical assistance at the Marina. The staff were excellent and helpful, so, by the time we set off, we felt quite confident about the whole experience. The barge was very well equipped and clean and was just perfect. We spent three days cruising the canal to Bath and back. It was a beautiful route and a lovely way to appreciate the countryside and nature which was all around us.

Every thing was as it should be - one cannot ask for more. The canal and boat briefings were very informative and helpful.

Your recent holiday on Wye - Cedrik from Whitchurch Marina

loved it best weekend in ages lucky with the weather though probably played a big part but I have the boating bug.

14 May 2018

Carolyn

The weather certainly does help to make a narrowboat holiday idyllic! Now that you have caught the bug we hope to see you again next year!

Your recent holiday on Grebe - Little Grebe from Union Wharf

Excellent run through of the boat by Jeff, very comprehensive, the boat was extremely clean + the bedding, well stocked. It would have been really nice to have a small table and chairs for sitting on the outside deck in the evening - I know this is difficult due to space constraints and we did have a particularly sunny week, so just a thought

14 May 2018

Carolyn

Thank you for your valuable feedback, we are always looking for ways to improve our boats so I have forwarded your suggestion to our boat building team. It's great to hear that you felt your handover was comprehensive and you were impressed by Little Grebe. We hope to see you again soon!

Your recent holiday on Gull - Common Gull from Gailey Wharf

Just the entry door on the boat was difficult and the latch dropped whilst we went out for the night resulting in us taking over an hour to get back on our return.

14 May 2018

Carolyn

Thank you for this feedback, which has been forwarded to the Marina so that they can check that the door latch has now been fixed. We hope to welcome you aboard again soon!

This was the best canal boat we've hired in the UK, and the staff at Rugby went the extra yard to make our trip a success.
