Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Amazing experience, wonderful week.
Had an amazing week on Plane Sailing. Owners could not be more welcoming or helpful. Always on hand if needed. Little extras from cooking oil to hair straighteners really made plane sailing feel like a home from home. Will 100% be re-booking this boat for next year. We didn’t go a day without the boat being complemented by many passers-by and other narrow boat owners and rightfully so, it is a beautiful boat.

This boat is the best on the water full luxury and proud to sail her
What a great week we had in March, the weather makes no difference on this boat, but the end of March is beautiful and vey quiet. Plane Sailing sails on the canals incredibly gracefully. Beautifully equipped, you cannot fault the attention to detail and the fantastic welcome we got made us feel like old friends. We lost count of the number of people complimenting us on our wonderful narrowboat. Don't hire anything else

Fantastic Canal Boat Rental
A perfect canal boat to hire for a short 5 day trip into Chester and back. The log burner was a great addition for the chilly March nights and the friendly and helpful assistance provided both on departure and arrival back to the Marina were greatly appreciated.

Just returned from a fantastic holiday exploring the Llangollen canal. Hills on the water is a lovely canal boat it is spotlessly clean with everything on board that you need. The bed is extremely comfortable and the shower is powerful providing constant hot water. From start to finish the booking service was seamless, Andrew was so helpful he was always available to offer us guidance and valuable information. Many thanks also tho Paul & Jeanette who are a lovely couple for their warm and friendly handover. We would highly recommend your company to friends & family and a big thank you to you all for a wonderful family experience one that we won’t forget. Good luck with everything for the future.

Fantastic
We really enjoyed our week on Hills On Water. It was absolutely perfect. Pretty much everything you need can be found on board and any problems they are on the end of the phone only happy to help. Lovely friendly people who obviously love their boat but are so happy to share such a lovely experience with others. Thank you so much and we hope to be able to book again soon!

Highly recommended
With lockdown just lifted, a short break aboard Hills on Water was a much needed escape for our family. We have hired boats before on several occasions through other companies and have to say this one ticks all the boxes. The boat is cosy and comfortable, and well equipped with everything you could possibly need and more, for a trip along the canal. Cheshire canal boat hire are a friendly, family run company who clearly pride themselves on ensuring their customers feel comfortable and relaxed. We had an amazing break and look forward to booking again :)

Fantastic
The whole experience was wonderful from the warm welcome at the start to the greeting on our return. The boat was luxurious; spotlessly clean and kitted out with all the essentials and more. The bed was warm and comfortable, the shower was powerful and hot and the log burner was a great feature, much needed in the evening. The boat ran like a dream as she purred up the tranquil Llangollen canal. I am booking again!

A great week cruising Hills on Water
Our first time on a narrow boat and definitely not our last. This is a lovely boat which attracted many admiring comments, it’s also very clean with everything you need. There are lots of little extras including Netflix, WiFi, an airier (great to have with the mixed weather), dyson stick vacuum...again really useful, log burner, umbrellas and a full sized shower which was welcome at the end of a chilly day. We opted to have the canopy and although we didn’t use this during the day due to tunnels and bridges it was a welcome addition in the cool evening relaxing with a G&T watching the sunset. The owners are so friendly and being our first time we were given a very thorough handover plus they came with us through the first lock. We really enjoyed our week on Hills on Water, we did a total of 80 miles and the boat ran like a dream. We would highly recommend...thank you Cheshire Canal Boat Hire!

If you are still unsure on what route would be best for you, don't worry we can recommend routes depending on your requirements.
