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.

    First time narrow-boaters here, but it didn’t stop us from having a fantastic trip with Aqua Narrowboats, past Shugborough Hall, into Stone where we purchased some Dunoon mugs, back down the Coventry canal for fish and chips in Fazely (would recommend!) and finished at Alrewas as route cut short by floods - thank goodness for ubers! With a boat perfectly equipped and without a fault, our holiday was definitely one to remember with beautiful walks too, and at least one kingfisher sighting every day. A huge thank you to the whole Aqua Narrowboats team for making our holiday so enjoyable!

    Had a fantastic fun family afternoon for my sisters 50th birthday. It was also my daughters 27th too. Parking was easy, checking in was straight forward, then onto getting in our wetsuits. A slight negative was that some lockers weren't functional but we did manage to find enough to use. Then there was a 5 minute safety brief before the fun began. O completion there was a complimentary ice lol, I think because it was the final day of the season which was a nice touch. Thoroughly enjoyable for a mixed range of ages from my 7 year old nephew up to a 50 year old in our party.

    Was given this trip as a gift for my birthday. The food was really lovely and the staff were amazing. Could not fault anything at all. Everything was presented beautifully and nothing was too much trouble. A variety of drinks are available on board to suit most tastes. Service was always with a smile, and the crew who took us through the locks work really hard too. Overall a brilliant experience and would not hesitate to re book and try their other experiences. Well done to all the staff.

    A thoroughly enjoyable holiday on the narrow boat.
    Upon arrival we had a warm welcome and received key safety information, training and familiarisation of the boat.
    The boat itself was clean and in good condition and there was enough equipment on board for self catering. We had a fantastic week away exploring and mooring up in remote locations. Very, peaceful and relaxing week. I would highly recommend the location and Black Prince.

    We took out a boat for a weekend and had a great time. The staff were helpful and detailed in their induction talk and the boat was well equipped. We made it to Fradley before turning around and going to Weston and back before we returned the boat, peaceful canal and I would recommend going South.

    The boat was older than some but spotlessly clean and well equipped. The introduction and run through was done well and the staff were helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend this company - excellent value.

    It was our first time on a canal boat and with Lorna’s expert training we were able to confidently steer the boat under the narrow bridge openings and past on coming boats in no time. Nessie is a great boat for a day on the water and you get time to visit a pub or two during the day if you want too.
