When booking a holiday with us, here are some of our guarantees:
- A floating home from home in twin en-suite cabins where you come and go as you please. Excursions aren’t compulsory (but they are available at every port of call at no extra cost).
- No compulsory tipping
- No ‘hidden’ costs. Even wine is included at lunch and dinner. You probably won’t reach into your pocket during a cruise with us unless you fancy a postcard or something from the top shelf as an after dinner drink.
- Accessible points of interest. All of our moorings are within 400m of the local main attraction, or if they aren’t then we lay on transportation for free.
- Traditional home cooked English food that everyone knows and enjoys. We also cater for any dietary requirements like gluten free, dairy free, low fat or if you don’t like fish.
- A holiday that anyone can enjoy and discover the amazing sights of the Heart of England
whilst floating along in our Four star accredited hotel boat on the might River Severn.
- No airport travel, lost luggage or endless queuing. Come right to the boat (we’re only ten minutes from the nearest motorway, bus or train station) and the crew take your bags straight to your cabin.
- No rushing, extra planning or researching in between accommodation. If you have a long way to travel, we’ll organise a local hotel for you the night before your cruise at a special rate to make sure you don’t miss the boat!
