“Unique luxury accomodation, beautiful setting, amazing service. new Forest at its' best.”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just returned from a 4 day break on Y-knot, having been waved off by the wonderful Nick who was on hand throughout the trip great us and answer any questions we had, I wanted to write a review while the wonderful memories are still fresh.

Service - from out first enquiries and quotes and multiple questions Melissa was so so very helpful and friendly it was a pleasure to arrange the trip. Melissa continued to be a point of contact throughout and nothing was too much trouble. Nick then took over as our right hand man from the moment we arrived, helping us with our luggage (4 girls were very much in need of this) and guided us through the harbour introduction and down to the yacht. Once on board we had a full induction to how everything worked and provided with contact numbers and details of the local area and harbour. I cannot praise the service enough. Well done Melissa and Nick...best and friendliest service in the New Forest!

Accomodation - well the yacht is a yacht. It is therefore compact and not ideal for those who aren't happy to climb around it and snuggle into the small twin room. However, for us, and those wanting a unique break, there really was nothing missing. It was so well equipped and we needed and wanted for nothing. The beds are good and sturdy, pillows and duvets clean and comfy.

Dining area inside is again compact but seats 4 easily.

The deck area, table and seating, is wonderful. We were often up early to watch the sun come up, reading on deck and passing the time with neighbouring yacht owners.

Location- great location to explore the forest. And for those not wishing to go far there is a harbour restaurant/bar which is worth a try and a fe minutes walk takes you to the sea baths with day time activities and the mayflower pub. A little further is the town of lymington and the quay for boat trips and the high street for shopping. All in all a beautiful and well placed location.

Special extras- what Y-Knot gets right, above all else, is the final touches. Plush cushions in all areas, nautical/British theme throughout, champagne free on arrival already awaiting you cooled in the bucket on deck, chocolate chilling in the fridge was also a really lovely surprise.

I could go on and on about this accomodation but simply put...it's ideal for a break away and if you feel you need to actually go out to sea just ask Nick who will arrange everything for you.

“Disappointing, too expensive for what it is!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I took my parents as a surprise to Y-Knot for the weekend, was disappointed on the whole experience. Firstly the communication is poor, I had to chase several times for information about my stay when really it should be communicated as soon as your booking is confirmed. During our stay we had heavy rainfall one night & water leaked onto both beds in the twin room- far from ideal when there is no other place to move too. The suggestion from the management was to switch the heating on the next day to dry the room out, which is not really realistic when it is a small room and +20 degrees outside.
The gas also wasn't switched on for our stay so we spent the first part of our morning trying to figure out what went wrong, apparently it wasn't switched back on after previously being vacant.
So all in all, I was disappointed as I had to spend one night being dripped on, the second night in a damp smelly room when supposed to be relaxing weekend away. I also had to chase for my deposit over a week later- no offer of discount for all the problems occurred.
Over-priced, would suggest staying somewhere else within Lymington.

We are very sorry your stay on Y-KNOT did not come up to scratch for you. Y-KNOT is a fabulous boat in a beautiful location and as per our other reviews luxury and customer service are top of our list. I do not recall struggling to keep you informed however have noted this and upon the unfortunate incident of a window being left slightly open a cabin did get wet and the staff did respond as quickly as possible by supplying you with replacement bedding.
Thank you for your review.

“Fantastic weekend on this luxury boat”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I booked this boat last minute for a weekend in Lymington and wasn't really sure what to expect - the pictures looked almost too good to be true!
It certainly lived up to the description and the boat was amazing, truely luxurious!
The facilities on the boat at at the Yacht Haven were great and we had everything we needed for the weekend away.
I would highly recommend booking this for a fun and alternative break.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We didn't know what to expect when we booked this holiday but it was absolutely perfect for us! The boat was fabulous, we had amazing weather all week and the views were stunning. We really couldn't have asked for better customer service, every call was answered to our complete satisfaction and we would recommend this to anyone as an ideal getaway. We look forward to coming back whenever we can!
