We had our holiday here this year. The staff were really helpful, friendly and welcoming. The boat we stayed in was lovely. Plenty of storage, drove well, bathrooms were good. Boat felt cosy, a home from home. Can't wait to come back! ❤️
Extremely helpful staff who cannot do enough for you, every question we asked was answered, everything we asked for was provided without question and with a smile. Very dog friendly (more so than most other boat yards) and you are provided everything you could possibly need & shown everything you need to know about the boat including the driving before they leave you to it. Handover at the end was a breeze and completely painless, we're so happy that we've already booked up for next year. Lastly, I've seen a couple of comments about the age of the boats on offer, every one of the older boats we looked at was perfectly functional, safe and clean, however they also have a fleet of newer vessels should the age be an issue to you, and there are plenty of photos to look at on the Hoseasons booking website.
People at the boatyard were very helpful and friendly. Can't do enough to help. I would always use this boatyard for the helpful staff and perfect location to start your holiday from.The Chelsea Bridge is very good for first timers, just the right size for a couple. Boat was very cosey at night.One of the best holidays ever.Totally hooked now. Can't wait for our next boating holiday.
Perfect holiday everything we needed onboard very clean and comfortable. Bridgecraft you are amazing we will be back. Thank you Anne and Rob
