“Wedding Weekend”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable, we were welcomed by Lauren who was very helpful and friendly, we were spending the weekend at the Boatyard as our Daughter was getting married and we had booked the wedding barge from the neighbouring Canal Cruises, and the evening reception at the Boatyard, we were looked after like royalty with nothing too much trouble for the staff, the room (No 1) was superb, very clean very comfortable and spacious, and everything worked!
The food at the Boatyard is superb, fresh and cooked to perfection, our evening reception went like clockwork, we had a barbeque all freshly cooked by the deputy manager Dave, what a "diamond"
Terry the Manager made sure everything was to our satisfaction, a very friendly atmosphere no complaints whatsoever, the breakfast was excellent all freshly cooked, a real treat, service from Sue in the morning was fabulous,
Thank you to all the staff at the Boatyard, you made a special weekend very special, what is their secret? it is very simple! the staff are nothing short of outstanding, well done we will definately be back.

Room Tip: If room 1 is anything to go by any room will satisfy the most discerning traveller

wow what a friendly place! We arrived to be greeted by the manager who showed us tothe room which was quite modern, clean and had a large flat screen TV which I liked. The food in the restaurant was surprisingly good and I would recomment the homemade burgers which were very tasty.The English breakfast in the coffee lounge was very filling and we were again served by the manager who was very jovial! A memorable stay!

I was staying on a business trip, but would equally enjoy this as holiday break. The staff were friendly and helpful, if a little disorganised on my arrival, they seemed to struggle to find my paperwork, but recovered to a full and helpful welcome.
The location is adjacent to the canal which is picturesque anytime, and must be delightful in better weather.
The room was large with a very large double..bliss...and a modern walk in shower room.
The food was good pub grub, and I enjoyed my evening meal.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, get a room furthest from the road, nearest the canal.

It didn't start well, upon our arrival the hotel hadn't received our reservation from Laterooms.com but the manager was very apologetic and he soon found us a room (No 4). There was a damp patch just in side the door of the room and the TV remote was missing. Although it was a double room it was two singles pushed together and one had a mattress that needed replaced. The good side of things include the shower, absolutely wonderful. We ate an evening meal which was lovely and at a reasonable price, with a bottle of wine from the manager as compensation for the troubles upon arrival. The TV remote was replaced within minutes. The breakfast in the morning was a very nice, very tasty full English, with good coffee. Overall nice place, nice friendly staff, good quality food, buildings could do with a little updating.

Room Tip: Have stayed here twice now and Room 6 is the best out of the two we have stayed in.

I have to say that I am amazed by the negative comments below, I have stayed at The Boatyard Inn on numerous occassions and have always found the staff and management welcoming and courteous. The food is always excellent and the rooms of a very high standard. I would definately recommend The Boatyard Inn to anyone wanting a relaxing break or as a base for business travel.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be of the same high standard

We had 2 rooms booked for a family wedding nearby, we had a twin room and a family room,( no 4 & no 6), they very kindly arranged early check in for us as we had to get ready for the wedding, we had a really nice lunch and then were showed to our rooms which are in a block across from the main hotel, the rooms are spacious, clean, welcoming with beautiful modern bathrooms, lots of tea/coffee provided and also lovely fluffy towels. The bedding was spotlessly clean and fresh. In the morning the breakfast was all prepared fresh we had the full cooked breakfast with toast and lots of tea & coffee. The setting is lovely right at the side of the canal and the staff are all friendly and courteous. We will definitely be staying there again next time we visit family nearby.Very highly recommended !!.

Room Tip: Family room ( no 6) is enormous, lots of room even with extra beds.

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Boatyard a few times recently and highly recommend it. The rooms are lovely and the food very good. The burgers are amazing and cooked to perfection with hand cut chips and homemade coleslaw. My partner had the fish and again perfectly cooked and well presented. No frozen microwaved meals here!!!
The new management team were very welcoming and professional.
Well Done!!!
