We were 5 adults and we hired one of the largest vessels (no.10) and had an absolute ball! The boat was easy to drive and dock. The river and birdlife was spectacular, cold nights in August meant we had a campfire each evening we docked on our 3 night cruise to celebrate my mothers 70th birthday. We reached the outskirts of Murray Breach (Avoca Dell) and return. The facilities on board were very good, the spa bath - brilliant. Heaps of space and comfort in each of our separate bedrooms. Whilst there was a bit of maintenance required (broken venetian blinds, damage to walls etc from people who abuse property without thought or respect) this did not detract from the wonderful experience in this lovely boat. The Management and Team were excellent too. Very professional and helpful. The gentleman who showed us how to manoeuvre the boat and show us the utilities onboard was friendly and relaxed. We all relaxed and slept like logs. A truly well worth mini- holiday to be had.

We had our fourth unforgettable houseboat trip. As always it was a very relaxing and we enjoyed stunning scenery. The majority of the staff we dealt with were very helpful although it was disappointing that the administration staff neglected to tell the crew that we were departing early and we had to park the boat back at the Marina ourselves. Similarly an admin person was rude about our arrival time, when she herself had arranged the transfers. Having been on this particular houseboat twice before it was good to note some upgrades such as a new spa, however this boat (number 6) was in desperate need of maintenance. The carpet was worn, the couches shabby and the blinds were unusable in some of the rooms. At over $10,000 per week ( not including fuel) I think maintenance needs to be a priority. I would definitely have a houseboat holiday again but will try a different company.

From our first contact with Unforgettable Houseboats right to handing our vessel back everything exceeded our expectations. The office and boat crew were an absolute pleasure to deal with. There were only 7 of us on Unforgettable 10. She is quite the beast. Being 70 feet and 70 ton she can be a bit challenging when berthing and steering but we soon got her under control. We only went to Walkers Flat. It was not about the destination!!!! It was about sharing time with good friends and family just relaxing & cruising the scenic Murray. All of us were totally blown away by the boats appointments. We had bought some larger wine glasses expecting our boat would have the small wine glasses so often supplied in such accommodation. That was a mistake Number 10 had wine glasses, champagne flutes, shot glasses, cocktail/martini glassware, heaps of tumblers in 2 sizes. And that was just the glassware!!!!! We wanted for nothing apart from one of our girls commenting that we didn't have a hair dryer. The galley (kitchen) was also stocked to the max. At times we had 4 people in the kitchen working and we all had space. Thank you Unforgettable Houseboats. You are the BOMB and you made our holiday an experience that 7 lucky passengers will never forget. Cheers!

We took an Unforgettable trip from Mannum to Swan Reach by houseboat at the end of July with long time friends. We had great weather barring 1 day, camp fires each nite, great food provided by the boys plus some amazing Moroccan dishes supplied by Lee. You have everything you need on board: Full kitchen, music, fridges, eskies or chully boxes for the eastern NSW PPL (KIWIS) laundry, ensuites to bedrooms, upper deck some with spa. We zigged and zagged a little, however as remarked by one of the crew " we did travel in a straight line point to point" . This manouvre was also described as Submarine avoidance technique. you don't have to be silly but it helps. We had a ball, lazy daze afloat, Harboured up at nite with a great fire. on our second last nite Steve cooked his signature "Camp Oven Lamb Roast with all the trimmings and pan gravy, and mint jelly. Yes we roughed it. too much food. too much laughter, too many bevies, We played a form of Trivial Pursuit, no board but lots of questions and rule changes as we went along. We had a mutiny and sacked the captain however didn't make him walk the plank. All in all we had a great week. 5 berth boat, so plenty of room, everything you need on board to enjoy your trip. The guys will even get you ice and firewood for the trip. you can pre order all your food and alcohol if that's the way you roll. We Highly recommend the team at Unforgettable houseboats. So give them a call or check out their website If you don't enjoy the trip you can only blame yourselves.
