What can I say but thank you for making our canal holiday for two weeks doing the four counties go very smoothly. Nothing too much trouble especially when we couldn't get the central heating working a week in. Big thank you for Terry turning out on a evening to sort out. We will be back. Highly recommend this family run business.
I cannot speak too highly of Andersen's Boats. Nothing was too much trouble for them in their efforts to make our boating experience a good one.My first thought after our holiday was 'when can we come back!'
Superbly run holiday narrowboat rental. Great central location with access to several routes including Cheshire Ring and Llangollen canals. Beautiful well equipped boats.Just returned from a weeks hire on the Fjord Emperor. Received a great induction, all covid precautions taken and very safe. Secure vehicle parking. Very friendly family run boatyard.Our boat was well prepared and we were undeway once loaded, enjoying our holiday and beautiful scenery.We had a very slight issue with the fridge on our third day. An engineer was immediately dispatched, even though we were in the middle of nowhere (Bosley Bottom Lock). Repair was carried out efficiently with no impact on our holiday.I cannot recommend this boatyard highly enough. If your thinking about using Anderson, just go ahead and book. You won't be dissapointed.
