A perfect family break away for a special birthday, with everything you could possibly need, in a perfect location.
Ken was there to meet us when we arrived, a tour around the boat and a welcome pack was much appreciated, and what was really special was the extra effort to source a 40th birthday cake and gluten free goodies which was such a nice touch.
We really appreciated the early check in and late check out which was a great help with train times.
The boat was immaculate, towels, hairdryers, iron, ironing board, sky, even a sewing kit were all available.
We found all the cooking utensils we needed to cook in the beautiful kitchen and even had a dominoes pizza delivered to the boat one night as we didnt want to leave the beautiful surroundings.
We booked the Belmont suite for afternoon tea at Betty’s tearoom on the Saturday which was well worth a visit, even if a little pricey, I’m so glad we did though and we enjoyed being spoilt.
To sum it up, the location was perfect with everything you could need just minutes away and within walking distance, the boat was very peaceful away from the noisy centre and something a bit different and special.
We’ve already been discussing dates to return as we had such a lovely time.
I have not stopped talking about the fantastic stay I had on the houseboat last weekend whilst on a hen do with 5 girls. The boat was so clean and tidy when we arrived, and I know the owner was on hand when my friend arrived to show where everything was.
The decor inside was lovely, and the boat itself was more spacious than i anticipated. I’ve already recommended the boat to a family member planning a weekend away with her friends and the girls and I would love to visit York again and will defiantly look at this houseboat next time we come.
Thank you for having us!
Stayed here for my hen do party, it was a total suprise for me until the day we arrived. The boat is absolutely gorgeous, everything is high quality and the attention to detail is wonderful. It's in a great location and Lucie was so helpful. Fabulous weekend
We have had a lovely long weekend aboard the Houseboat. Just something different to an apartment or hotel with an homely feel so close to the centre of York. Lucie met us onboard to show us round and we were really impressed with the set up and decor - they have thought of everything to make the stay home from home. Spotlessly clean and really comfortable - just loved it!! Couldn’t fault anything - and the little arrival hamper was so thoughtful. With about a 10 minute walk into the town centre the location was very convenient. Would definitely recommend and like to return sometime in the future.
Ken and family couldn't have been more firendly and helpful. The boat is beautifully presented with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The easy parking and central location were a real bonus too. I'd definitely recommend to a friend.
