Yes I would stay there again, but probably only if I was on my own. The cabins are fine but very tiny and this can get a bit annoying when sharing with someone else, even the strongest relationship will be tested by the space and the inevitable clutter once you open your suitcase.
That said I was very happy with the hotel. The bathrooms are also very small but modern and very very clean. The bathroom is basically a wet room but there is nothing wrong with that. The space in front of the toilet is suitable for a child, but you might find yourself sat on the toilet seat sideways as I am NOT tall and my knees were touching the wall!
We stayed in a room with bunk beds and I was 'lucky' enough to get the top bunk. There is only about 2 feet between the mattress and the roof and slightly disconcertingly there were no bed rails on the top bunk, but all was fine. The room was a bit too warm, there was air conditioning throught out but there was no option to control the temperature, I noticed there was a heater in the room so it seems you can regulate the heat but not the cold! In all fairness the weather was over 23C and muggy outside. There is a TV in the room with some American type channels and BBC News. The rooms are very quiet, we didnt hear any other guests apart from when they closed their cabin door. The port hole window can be closed to create a blackout blind so we got a cracking nights sleep.
My biggest grumble was that there was no kettle in the room, I really did miss this. Breakfast was really nice, it was continental, the table was constantly attended and topped up and the breakfast area/room kept clean.
The location is amazing, right on the edge of the old town, but far enough away to not be bothered by any of the noise or bustle of the area. There is also a lovely little out door cafe just outside the reception entrance that offers lovely homemade cakes! We didnt try the restaurant on the boat because we didnt think it would have much of an atmosphere, but we didnt even venture up there to check it out so cant pass any comment on that one.
