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.

We booked online for a 45 minute skippered boat ride with Gary. He was friendly, informative and brilliant with the 2 children on the trip. He was knowledgeable of everything along the route and let the children skipper the boat for a stretch of our journey, which they absolutely loved. Would highly recommend.

This was a great outing on a 2 hour skippered cruise. Jaime, our captain, was so informative and gave us a lot of history about the estate and the areas we passed along the river. The boat was impeccably clean and quiet. It was a great value for the price and I would definitely take this relaxing and informative cruise again if I am at Cliveden in the future.

We booked one of the self-drive electric boats as part of our stay at Cliveden House Hotel. The staff at the boathouse were helpful and friendly, and gave useful advice on control of the boat, safety and regulations on the river. A thoroughly enjoyable way to spend a leisurely hour on the Thames.

Last Friday my sister and I decided to make the most of the good weather with a trip to Cliveden. We’ve been many times but have never done the boat trip. It was a small electric boat so very peaceful - the trip took 45 minutes and our guide was extremely informative and entertaining and we had some incredible views of Cliveden from the river.
I would highly recommend this trip to anyone 👍

As three friends we booked the 45mins trip to supplement afternoon tea at Cliveden for a birthday gift. A beautiful day, wonderful views, the skipper was fun and full of interesting stories. We are all still smiling and sharing photos and joy. Special memories for the memory box. Would recommend it to everyone. Such a bargain too.

Lovely hour's trip with our grandchildren. We took our picnic on board and ate lunch as we cruised up and down. Fun activity as part of a trip to Cliveden. Staff were friendly and efficient and the boat, booked online, ready and waiting.

After a few hours in the gardens of Cliveden (also wonderful) we took out an electric boat (for up to five) for an hour - we'd booked it online a few days beforehand. The staff were professional and friendly, and the boat was available as booked. After a short briefing we were on our way. An hour is enough to cruise gently upstream towards Cookham before heading downstream to Boulters Lock and back with views of Cliveden on the hill. It's one of the most beautiful stretches of the Thames. The boats are very smart, with plenty of room, cushions, table and canopies - and very easy to operate. Everyone, including Bruno the dog, loved the experience - we'd do it again and next time perhaps take two hours to venture further through one of the locks.
