Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent service; easy to use website
A little more expensive than some of the rival companies but you are allowed to park for free in the hotel all day, the boat is far more comfortable than other types for 6 people and the service was excellent - plus its soooo easy to steer being all electric
Great fun - many thanks

I would most definitely recommend this activity. We hired a six seater boat for a two hour trip. We were given advice about going through the lock near Marlow and a safety briefing. Staff were excellent and knowledgeable. We were a family group and everyone really enjoyed the activity and picnic on the water. The boat was really easy to drive and fun.

A lovely afternoon spent on the Thames from Marlow to Cliveden and back. We rented the boat for 4 hours and had the loveliest of times. The instructions given were great, informative and not complicated at all. The boat was simple to drive and easy to take through the locks. Thank you Marlow electric boat company for a great afternoon out.

Great trip out on the river in Marlow. Boat was gorgeous, silent and comfy, with ample room for all 7 of us. Lots of storage under seats and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Really easy to access from the hotel as described. Fantastic day out!

The whole experience was simple and easy. Booked the day before online arrived and was out on the water within minutes. The boat is easy to drive and it’s a nice stretch of water, we were out for an hour.

Rented the 10 seater boat and the entire experience was wonderful. Responsive team, easy to communicate with and great service on the day of the rental with a lovely boat. We rented for a full 8 hours and had an amazing time. Would certainly recommend this company to other people.

Brilliant!! Boat was ready when we arrived, staff were amazing. Had an issue on the way back with the boat running slow against the current and ran late and the staff were very understanding.

The weather was perfect the waters calm our trip was brilliant. The launch was quiet smooth and clean. We were given excellent instructions before leaving the mooring and took a steady trip up river the river is wide and peaceful and the views onto houses snd countryside amazing
We went through a lock which was interesting to see the water rise and fall so quickly and then continued along the river
The launch was for 6 and would be more than enough space. There were only 2 of us so we were spoilt
Totally recommend this with a bottle of wine to make a perfect trip

We had a great time on Saturday afternoon, messing about on the river with family and dog. We celebrated my birthday in style. Communication and booking process with Boating at Marlow was excellent. The lady who briefed us when we arrived was very friendly and helpful. We will be booking another trip in the future.
