We stayed at (on) Boatel on our way through Toronto during September. The boat is a beauty with a rich mahogany finish, it was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was superb. Well done Ted and Diane. We hope to see you again soon.

While looking for hotels for our weekend getaway in downtown Toronto, we came across the Boatel and thought it would be a fun and unique experience. We were not disappointed! Captain Ted and Diane were such amazing hosts and made us feel right at home right away. Location is perfect, breakfast was delicious, and the company was exceptional. Will definitely stay there again!

We chose to stay on the Boatel for a weekend visit to Toronto because we thought it would be memorable, and it was! Ted and Diane were lovely hosts as they welcomed us aboard and made us feel immediately comfortable. The location is central to many attractions which makes moving around the city much more convenient. Waking up to a warm breakfast was appreciated and you can't beat the view of the Toronto islands! We enjoyed our stay so much that we have since returned and have slept comfotably in the rooms both times. We would highly recommend staying at the Boatel if you'd like to make your stay in Toronto a memorable one!

Our stay at Diane and Ted's boatel in Toronto was one of our best experience this year. The location is great, the boat is very comfortable and our hosts warm welcome make us feel at home. Many thanks for your assistance during our stay, your cooking skills. Hope to visit you again.

We (family with twins age 11) had a perfect time in Toronto staying at Diane's and Ted's Boatel. We felt at home at once and just loved to fall asleep on the slightly rocking boat. Diane and Ted are wonderful hosts, breakfast is delicious and the location the perfect spot to start discovering Toronto. Highly recommendable!!!

We stayed on the Boatel for three nights in Toronto during our honeymoon. We absolutely LOVED the Boatel! Diane and Ted were excellent hosts, and Diane made wonderful a gourmet breakfast every day. The mainstay cabin with private bath was roomy and comfortable. We loved the privacy and beautiful view of the city and waterfront. It was docked within walking distance of many great restaurants and attractions. We highly recommend staying here.
