Such a great location - both being on the water and also within walking distance of so many things to do! Natasha and Klaus were very friendly and helpful and made our stay very comfortable. All the instructions they gave were thorough and very easy to follow.
The boat itself is very spacious and had everything we needed. We loved the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, and the beds really very comfy. Having sundowners on the deck whilst watching the ducks and the rowers and the rest of the comings and goings of the river was a highlight and very relaxing.
We will definitely recommend Bluebird to all our friends and family, and hope to be back soon ourselves!
Thanks so much for such a pleasurable stay!
Many thanks for an amazing time on Bluebird. Such a peaceful, relaxing setting within walking distance of many tourist attractions. Friendly, efficient staff on hand whenever needed. Organised for access for disabled user. Will definitely book again.
The lovely thing about this houseboat is the fact that it's only a stones throw from the city but bobs in a quiet enclave on the River Thames. It's hard to believe how near you are to the action when it's so peaceful and quiet there. A short walk over Hampton Court Bridge takes you to a street with a range of wonderful restaurants and cafes (we tried the South Indian Cocum which was great).
We loved pootling up the river on the electric boat and sitting out on the deck in the evening as the sun set. It's great to watch the boats and the rowers pass by.
The boat had everything we needed for our short stay and was spotlessly clean and tidy.
The location of the boat is one which will take your breath away. Situated just next to Hampton Court Palace, the marina is truly a hidden gem, upon opening the gate your eyes are immediately in awe with the luscious green rainforest like walkway which leads on to a beautiful marina which is just simply stunning and rare to find so close to central London. Natasha couldn't have been more helpful if she had tried as she did everything she could to make our stay on the boat as comfortable as possible- and it most certainly was! I honestly can't recommend this beautiful stay enough, so much nicer than being in a normal hotel and the boat is even better than we expected and also so clean! With comfy beds and a real homely feel, we felt like royalty on Bluebird. We were sad to leave and will definitely be returning for another stay. Thank you so much Klaus and Natasha!.
Stayed on Bluebird during the week for most of August. Great location, such a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Bluebird was very comfortable, well equipped and great fun, enjoyed BBQ and boat ride to the nearest pub in the evenings. Lots of places to eat and drink within 10 mins walk, Hampton Court Palace, Bushy Park, Taggs Island all within walking distance. Great cycling along the Thames path, Kingston and Richmond upon Thames within 20 to 40 min cycle. Great fun, comfortable and very relaxing, what more could you ask for. Nastasha and Klaus were great hosts, and took the time to show us how to operate the motor boat. Will be returning ...
