Incredibly rude staff, spoke to us like we were the stupidest people on earth. Boat was dirty when we got it. Blonde lady is the rudest, definitely find elsewhere to hire your boats from. Type of lady that would wear white to your wedding, not someone you want to be have helping you go on a peaceful holiday
Rude staff, very unpleasant and spoilt the last day of our holiday by demanding we leave early even though we should have had the boat until 9.30am. we were made to leave by 8.15am. Unprofessional way of working
Very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient staff. We started a weeks holiday on a canal boat from here and had a great holiday.
Just hired a day boat for later this year. Not used this co before. Very helpful over booking looking forward to a great day out
Tourist attraction I don't think so. Felt like I was intruding in peoples gardens. Theres nothing there except private barges. Do not bother
