“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2011

We hired a barge from York Marine Services for a weekend and the experience was brilliant. The inside cabin is very modern and spotlessly clean with everything you need. We had never driven a boat before so we were taken on a short induction trip which provided us with all the information and safety tips that we needed. Once out on the water we found that we soon got the hang of things and once we had mastered our first lock we found it plain sailing from then on. It is so relaxing and you get to see fantastic locations from a totally different perspective.
This was a great experience so make sure you include it on your "things to do" list. Thanks to Brigid, Tim , Jay and the rest of the team for such a great welcome and service.

“Exellent weekend expierience!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2011

Four adults have just returned today from a two night break on the "Thomas Jay" wide beam boat. From the onset the owners were very helpful, there was a comprehensive induction regarding the handling of the boat and valuable tips on use of the locks. There were a couple of unavoidable problems (we were unable to solve them due to being boat novices!). We rang the owners on route who could not have been more helpful in attempting to solve them for us. The boat was VERY clean and had a good quality interior including tv, shower, fridge, cooker. Overall it was a great weekend, I would recommend anyone to use the boat company, everyone was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, even as novices there was no stress, it really helped to know if there were any problems one phone call to base and someone could be with you in a short space of time. Exellent!

“Should have gone to Hoseasons!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2010

Be afraid, be very afraid.‎ - ‎ - 2010-09-21
Boat rental from here, my advice? don't.
Broken tv, non working sockets, mouldy bloodstained mattress cover, craked loo seat, broken shower holder,lost day due to electrical breakdown, no advice on lock use or operation.
Letter of complaint (sent 'signed for'), three weeks of silence!
Rang today, accused of being "the type of people who like to sue".
No attempt to address complaints. No interest either.
Really, really poor service run/owned by a man who describes himself thus" I am a small builder and don't get down here much". Enough said? Should have gone to Hoseasons.
