Exceeded all expectations. Will return again. Highly recommend-it is in a beautiful location under a willow tree, and just a perfect experience.

Excellent service and facilities, small and quirky room with all that you need for a different hotel experience.The host Stuart was really helpful with the surrounding places to visit and eat. The lounge on board was snug and welcoming. The breakfast was outstanding and a little large as i had to help my wife with hers, a hardship i eagerly suffered. The access to the barge was fine for me as an able bodied overweight 55 year old but i would advise anyone that if they are not as nimble as they once were, embarking and dis-embarking could be a challenge. This Hotel was a experience that i will definitely do again and the 4 star treatment not only makes this a absolute bargain it was also a joy. i would finally add that i believe this is not somewhere for children unless you are prepared to stand over them, the staircases require careful attention and there is restricted space for those on board and obviously water all around.

Good experience

Very clean and a high standard Finnish. Cabin was lovely and warm. Breakfast and lounge area no heating on and it was the end of October. Staff very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was very good and filled us up for the day. Location was 1st class but a little noisey with the frait train on a night.
