“A lovely place to be for a few days !”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We Hired the boat for a long weekend in early May, and were very impressed with the service from Martin and facilities on the boat too.
On arrival, Martin helped us with our luggage and went through the do’s and don’ts. Everything was clear to understand and our only doubt was whether we could “do locks” or not ! Martin kindly spent the time to travel with us and showed us how the locks worked. It was a large weight off our mind and we continued on our adventure with extra confidence. During our trip we found the other boat enthusiasts really nice and chatty. We only ended up doing one lock without the assistance of others because there are often many people around the lock areas waiting to go through or just volunteering to help. The boat was fully equipped with everything you need (including tea, coffee and fresh scones !) and we really felt we were on an exciting adventure! We moored near local pubs and coupled with the excellent amenities on board, we felt very content. We would highly recommend floating Dreams and will book again.

“Cosy boat”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Midweek rental end of April during the cold snowy weather. Great time with our nephew and dog. All meals cooked on board bar last night pub grub. Everything worked well. Needed the central heating and coal fire stove which can be very powerful - had to open front doors and windows one night when it was frosty outside!
The boat is quite old but very well maintained and clean. Difficult to steer partly because the conditions were windy but the helmsman needs to maintain their concentration. Managed 33 miles and 30 locks on Shropshire Union and Llangollen Canals. Very pleased in the conditions and for a brief midweek break.

Thank you for the response and we're happy that you all had a good time. It was a pleasure to have you aboard. Wind is always a challenge..(to us too....) but it's all part of the fun. Sorr the weather was so lousy but we're glad that Adele Marie kept you all toasty warm.
