“Perfect location”
Reviewed 20 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Had a lovely time in this houseboat.It is in a quiet location and yet it really is a 5-10 minutes walk into the centre of York. In fact on the last day we moved our car to a city centre car park and came out to find ourselves just over the river from the houseboat! The houseboat itself is very nicely furnished and deceptively spacious with each bedroom being a good size as well as the lounge and kitchen. Lots of different kitchen gadgets and equipment.Outside there is a nice area where you can sit outside for meals or drinks ( looks very pretty at night when it is all lit up).
I would definitely recommend this houseboat, much more interesting than a rented house or hotel. It was great watching the other boats go by waving to us. Everyone was very friendly, felt like celebrities waving to them all!
Children would love it here but be aware that it wouldn't be save to leave young children unattended, except in the main part of the boat. There is the gangway to negotiate onto the boat and a short flight of steep stairs down into the boat. Also,you can walk around the outside of the boat but it is a bit precarious.
The owners were very helpful, leaving a nice basket of goodies and they also let us check in early as we arrived early.

“Luxury Houseboat innYork”
Reviewed 8 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The houseboat was fabulous, it had everything and more than you would want. It is in a fantastic location with only a short walk into York. It easily accommodated six adults and was so much better and different than staying in a hotel. The decor was well thought out with lovely nautical touches. Ken and family were so accommodating and allowed us to check in early. Highly recommended and will definitely stay again.

The house boat I rented for 3 nights so my wife and I could visit York. The accommodation was brilliant. I can not recommend enough if your thinking of doing something different than the old hotel or flat then try it. Ken and Maggie meet you when you arrive and they are very helpful. I know where I will stay everytime I visit York. Try it you will not be disappointed. Thank You Ken and Maggie for a wonderful stay.

“River stay York”
Reviewed 20 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We were lucky enough to stay here in February. The location is fabulous. Close to the centre of York for shops, restaurants and bars.
The boat is beautiful with 3 bedrooms. There is a new bathroom and lots of individual touches to give a homely but quality appearance.
There is something very special about being on water and watching other boats go past. We can't wait to come back in summer for a spot of sunbathing on deck.
