“A lovely boat surrounded by a beautiful setting ”
Reviewed 6 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I surprised my parents to a weekend on this beautiful old boat and I couldn't of picked a better choice. From the moment my dad saw the boat he was smiling like a Cheshire Cat. Its a beautiful well layed out boat with everything you need for a peaceful relaxing holiday. The boat is in its own secluded area away from the hustle and bustle, but just a few minutes walk away is the train station where it's just one stop and your in lively Maidstone town centre. There's also a lovely local pub a few minutes walk away that serves food as well as drink. The owner of the boat Lawrence couldn't do enough for my parents. From the moment I put down a deposit it was plan sailing, he sorts everything out for you and nothing's to much trouble. You also have at your disposal the use of two mountain bikes and two kayaks that come with the price of the boat. Overall a lovely beautiful peaceful place to stay. Highly recommended.

“Absolutely Amazing!!!”
Reviewed 3 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

What a beautiful, peaceful and quiet getaway! Seriously thinking of having a winter break here. The owner Laurence is so attentive and helpful. Would highly recommend a long weekend break here. One of the best breaks away I've ever had!

“Fantastic stay on the Marianna”
Reviewed 23 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Stayed for the weekend, the boat is first class. Location is great within walking distance of two pubs which serve food. We made full use of the bikes and Kayaks that come with the boat. Lawrence was the perfect hoast and nothing was to much trouble for him. Added bonus of a hairdryer and toiletries on board means less to pack. Definitely recommend the Marianna to anyone who wants to get away from it all and relax in beautiful surroundings. We will definitely be back.

“AmaIng Weekend!”
Reviewed 20 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend stay on the Marianna. On arrival the owner Lawrence, met us and showed us around the boat and the private garden area. He couldn't have done more for us, bottle of fizz in the fridge for my birthday and loaned us a chain for our little dog so he could wander around without us worrying. Marianna is gorgeous and absolutely immaculate. Hot showers and cosy bed.
The kayaks were the highlight of the weekend, going up the river which is really pretty with lots of Wildlife.
There were 2 bikes included too. Lovely BBQ area and large wooden shelter if you wanted to be under cover. Would definitely recommend - great weekend, just over too quickly!!

“Lovely relaxing getaway break!”
Reviewed 11 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed on the Marianna for 1 night over a weekend, I booked at the last minute in that week mainly because of the pictures/reviews and it did not disappoint!

It was quiet and very peaceful, perfect to just relax in the sunshine with a couple of ciders and let the sun pass over you in the little garden, I had a bbq going very pet friendly, couldn't ask any better for a little romantic getaway.

We took the complimentary kayaks out and took advantage of the bikes for a short ride down the riverside.
The boat was perfect clean and tidy. It has everything you could need.

Laurence was very friendly and welcoming throughout and a pleasure to meet.
We definitely would want to stay here again and would highly recommend!
