We were thrilled with the location on arrival. Our room was the biggest & best, the Forth Room overlooking the marina. The bed was huge with crisp sheets, a very comfortable mattress & fluffy towels in a beautiful, spacious bathroom. Not all was as it seemed though. I had to report the following to the Manager. One bedside lamp didn't...

We've visited this beautiful restaurant many times for dinner. Menu excellent with wide choice of food. We have also gone for breakfast which is excellent value for money. Relaxed atmosphere and attentive and friendly staff. Like all restaurants things occasionally go a bit wrong but forgivable. Overnight accommodation is modern, clean and comfortable.

I joined colleagues today at The Boathouse for our Team Christmas Lunch, and enjoyed it very much. The staff were attentive and friendly, the menu was very tempting, and I definitely enjoyed my meal. Unlike some other restaurants at this time of year, we didn't feel cramped or squashed with other diners. Hope to return with family, when we're not...

I've eaten with family at the Boathouse on a few occasions previously. The restaurant is large and spacious and situated in a lovely spot by the canal marina. This time around, I had dropped my son off at the nearby Croy Station and had a notion for some breakfast. I knew that the Boathouse offered a breakfast menu so I...
