We stayed on the Millie Grace while on business in the area. I'd really like to give this a 4 star review since staying on the boat was a really fun experience but our stay was marred by some flaws and issues. The directions were spot on and everything was ready for us. The boat was cold when we got...

A birthday treat for me..booked the Lila Mae. OK..it was January...but really cosy and warm. Could see the Parkway and the tram..but no noise at all.... Owners had thought of everything likely to be needed...which was excellent. Had packed a picnic supper (from M&S!!). Plenty of crockery and glasswear... Bed was comfy....but to me...I found it claustrophobic...(thats just me!) Others...

Nearly never made it but so glad we did - such a beautiful boat in a stunning, quiet location and so close to city centre. Far better for us than hotel option (2 adults, 13 yr old and 10 yr old). Boat has 2 double beds (table converts to second double bed) and a single bunk - which was fab....

The boats are perfect with every detail provided for. The shower is good and the bed comfortable. There is a lovely bar close by with nice inexpensive food (in the Quay arches). It's lovely to sit out on a summers night.

I booked this as a surprise present for my husbands birthday, and we were not disappointed. I was sent an email from the owner before arrival giving full directions and instructions of how to gain entry to the quay and where the keys would be located. Parking is right in front of the boat so you can see your vehicle...

Took my partner for her birthday as a treat from myself and her daughters. She had always wanted to stay on a 'Rosie and Jim" boat and she wasn't disappointed. We had a very relaxing unhurried stay we both wished we had booked for longer. The boat was spotless and the beds so comfortable. We are already looking forward to...

Stayed overnight on the Laila Mai as we were going to see Bryan Adams at the Arena. Excellent location for visiting the Arena (10 mins from Hyde Park tram station) and also the city centre which we explored during the day. We were most impressed with what Sheffield has to offer. Boat was lovely and cosy and lived up to...

We stayed on the boat for 1 night whilst visiting Sheffield dog stadium. The owner met us on arrival and was very helpful and welcoming. Parking was great. Right next to the boat. The accommodation was spotless. Very comfortable and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable, although small which was expected. Great location. Short walk to town...
