Reviews as an owner
Great experience on the Gabrielle, it couldn’t be located any better, the weather wasn’t great over the weekend but were protected by the surroundings and the Albert Dock is always worth a visit. Everything you need is onboard, Kenneth the owner is very helpful & friendly and just at the end of the phone, we had a delay on arrival, which our own fault but he was still there to guide us over the details. Definitely recommend!!
What an experience!
We stayed on Gabrielle during Storm Denis and as predicted by Ken we were safe! The yacht is really spacious and well equipped. I couldn't believe the ensuite facilities!! And Ken was incredibly flexible and easy going which just made our, albeit brief stay, effortless. We will definitely be back again. Thank you Ken for sharing Gabrielle with us :)
Fantastic Host and the place was amazing. Excellent location and the boat was lovely. Highly recommended.
Jan. in Albert Dock
Kenneth greeted us and took us to the boat, showing us the ins and outs of the sailboat. He was friendly and helpful. Boat was comfortable and great location.
Mr. Ken - Thank you! Albert Dock-Great idea for a board stayed here with a Leon and really enjoyed our time on the GABRIELLE would highly recommend staying here to anyone looking for something different than the normal boring hotel route. 5 stars thanks so much will defintely be back.
Beautiful setting and experience
I booked a few nights as an experience for my visiting niece and nephew. They were so excited and enjoyed the experience of being on board a boat in the Albert dock so much- particularly the proximity to the sweet shop and having a cabin to themselves with no adults allowed
Ideal relaxation lounging on board Ken’s boat. Having a glass of wine watching the world go by. Ken was easily available if any problems occurred but thankfully none did . Would definitely do it again. Highly recommended
Great experience, superb friendly host!
Ken is an absolutely lovely chap, very friendly and welcoming giving a tour of the boat. The boat is clean and well equipped. Comfortable beds and really fun, different experience. The harbour is safe, secure and iut of the way, while being in the middle of shops and a short walk from the centre, so its perfect.
Gabrielle was superb
The Gabrielle was great night's stay right in the heart of the Albert Dock. Kenneth our host was very helpful and informative. We will definitely be doing this again.
The owner of the boat ken was amazing, from booking right till the end. He met us at his boat and showed us round and said we could stay as long as we wanted on the Sunday so rush to check out just give him a text when we were leaving. The boat is lovely and snug, perfect for experiencing something different. Could of been a little cleaner but didn’t ruin it for us :) perfect location, 5 minute work to Liverpool one. very happy. Thank you ken.
Kenneth was a wonderfully welcoming host and the boat itself was beautiful and in the most fantastic location right on Albert Dock, literally a stone's throw from everything we wanted to do/see while on our short trip to Liverpool. We will definitely be back!
Liverpool Albert Docks
Great boat and facilities , Ken was very helpfull and we had a great time . I would definately want to stay again
Fantastic location for a great price
Despite the extremely windy and rainy weather our stay was very comfortable. Luckily I brought earplugs which were useful for the first night due to the water lapping the side of the boat but the second night was flat calm. Much more spacious than I imagined and the shower was lovely!
Liverpool albert dock
Had an amazing time stayed on kenneths boat and it was a great experience and lovely friendly and very helpful great location Liverpool is a great place and everything close by.
Just brilliant! Host was fantastic! Boat was brilliant - cant wait to do it all again!!
We had a fantastic time with our 2 children who are 2 & 7, oldest didn’t want to leave and is now on the hunt for another boat to stay on. Really nice boat, enough space for all of us. we will be back again for another stay. Kenneth was a great host too
Weekend in Liverpool
We had a lovely weekend on board Ken's yacht in Albert Dock- great location and enjoyed the pirate shenanigans with a perfect view! Ken was very helpful and we had everything we needed. It was quiet at night, and fab bakery a few yards away to get pastries to eat on deck for breakfast! We would love to come back soon! Heather, Matt and family
would highly recommend. we had a fantastic time in Liverpool staying on ken's boat. it's location is perfect, its a great size and has everything you need. will definitely be returning
Albert Dock Liverpool.
Excellent stay great position for all that is good about Liverpool. Photos don’t do it justice.
Wonderful Gentleman Kenneth who waited patiently for us. Lots of space and 3 rooms. Lovely boat. We had 2 children with us and they loved the adventure of staying on this boat plus the location first class on the Albert Docks. We had 2 toilets and one became blocked but did not ruin our time as we all used the other. Would stay again. Thank you Kenneth for the experience.
Great location, excellent host
The boat had everything you would ever need, comfortable and spacious. The location is perfect and is right in the middle of all the famous Liverpool attractions. Kenneth was a great host, very friendly and hospitable. Would definitely stay again.
A great stay!
The four of us had a wonderful stay on board Gabrielle. Kenneth was a fabulous host and went above and beyond to ensure our trip went perfectly. The moring is so conveniently located, just as well as there is so much to see and do! We can't thank Kenneth enough - we had a truly memorable weekend. Thank you.
Great mini break
My friend and I stayed on Ken's boat. We had a great stay right in the heart of Liverpool. The City is great, clean and excellent restaurants, especially the ones just around the boat. Ken could not have been more helpful. Hope to perhaps do it again in the summer. Boat had everything we needed.
What an excellent experience. The yacht was lovely and to stay in the dock was so peaceful at night. Waking up in the morning was great to see the liver buildings. Yacht Gabrielle had everything we needed. So good coming back in November for 3 night.
had a great stay on ken's lovely yacht in Albert dock are host was very welcoming and the location has everything you could ask for for a short break restaurants, bars, culture and relaxation. parking is available at the Ibis hotel at £10.00 per day which is only 5 mins walk from the dock entrance. and the boat is fully equipped with radio, TV, gas cooker, electricity and shower. the toilet on board is a little difficult if you are not used to sailing boat arrangements but there is a shower room and toilet just at the end of the jetty which you have a key to access so no real problem. brilliant! we will stay again when back in that neck of the woods. Thanks ken see you again soon. Tony & Carol
Comfortable boat in perfect location!
Kenneth was very quick to respond and we enjoyed our stay on his boat in the heart of Albert Dock! Just perfect for seeing a lot of the sites and with many restaurants and bars within a couple of minutes walk. The boat itself is quiet and comfortable and so we got a good sleep. Thanks - would high recommend.
comfortable boat in amazing location
We really enjoyed our night on board Kenneth's boat in the Albert dock, Liverpool, the owner is very obliging and nothing is too much trouble for him. The boat is very comfortable and clean and we wouldn't hesitate to use it again.
Wowwwwew what a treat! We feel so lucky to have had this experience on Ken’s boat! He couldn’t of been anymore helpful! We throughly enjoyed our stay! Fabulous exciting buzzy place to be!! Will definitely revisit x thankyou ken x
Fabulous right on the Albert dock.So convient for everything.Everything we needed on board.Ken the boats owner met us and showed us around the boat explaining everything to us he was very friendly and helpful
Well what can I say Kenneth is the perfect host and so very helpful, making sure we have everything we need, our three gymnasts think it’s the perfect place to chill after watching gymnastics as do the grown ups!!! Excellent location, will be back next year for sure, thank you Kenneth once again. X
In a great location within Albert Docks, but could have been presented better.
Kenneth is a very friendly host, who greeted us at the car park outside of the docks. His boat is in a lovely location within the docks, just down the ramp from the bars and restaurants. This was our first time using Beds on Board and unfortunately it didn't quite meet all of our expectations. As much as he is a genuinely nice man, I think his preparation of the boat for guests was not as good as it could have been. The boat could have presented itself so much better had it been clean and tidy and not smelt of damp (Although Kenneth was obviously aware of the damp as he had a dehumidifier running when we got there) If he had spent some time cleaning and tidying it would have given us a much better first impression. Despite this, staying on the boat was quite good fun though and certainly an experience we won't forget!
1st off The owner and his granddaughter where very helpful, fantastic communication from the start to end. The yacht is docked in a great setting with views of the liver buildings and surrounded by nice bars and restaurants. We where lucky enough to have stayed during the river festival and felt apart of the festivities. The boat itself was nice, clean big enough for a large family and with everything you need on board. Big thank you again and hopefully I will get the pleasure to stay again or even better sail in her.
AMAZING STAY. SO GOOD WE ARE BOOKING AGAIN
Massive thanks to Kenneth for all his help, he was amazing, and for lending us beautiful Gabriel for the night. Loved her so much. She is moored almost in front of Tate Gallery. If you park near Beattles expo and walk through Britannia Pavillion you are almost there. Parking is £20 for 24 hours. Plenty of places to eat on the docks. We had an amazing breakie at the Gallery which you can almost touch from the boat. Although Whats Cooking looked amazing (didn't discover til after we had eaten). There are lovely toilets near to the Gallery cafe too. And Gabriel is great. 3 bedrooms, a living area with lots of seating, cooking facilities if you are eating in, 2 bathroom/shower rooms. Our bed was comfy. And the piece de resistance has to be seeing the stunning sunrise in the morning from your bed. Absolute bargain. Would do it again in heartbeat.
The boat is nestled amongst the bars and restaurants of historic Alberts Dock. Very spacious with all conveniences. Kenneth was marvellous and went out of his way to accommodate our arrival and was extremely helpful with parking and directions etc. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Would highly recommend Kenneth and his lovely sailboat. Thank you Skipper.
A lovely one night stay on the Gabrielle. The owner Ken couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Everything was just as we'd have hoped. Thank you.
Wonderful family fun
Magnificent boat in an absolutely fantastic location. We cooked and ate on the boat, as well as at 2 different restaurants within 30 seconds walk. Covered the maritime museum, Tate Liverpool, open top bus tour, coffee stops, cocktails, Liverpool wheel, ice creams and Mattel play centre all within a few hundred metres of the boat. We had so much fun and the children 4 and 7 absolutely loved the whole experience. We all had fun pretending it was our boat! We all had a lovely comfortable nights sleep. Ken was very helpful and a pleasure to meet. Great value. Would definitely book again.
1ST TIme on the water at Liverpool Albert Dock
Met by Ken, contact numbers swapped introduced to the facilities made to feel welcome.
We had an amazing day & night on Gabrielle. Big Thanks to Ken for allowing us to stay on his beautiful boat in the perfect location. We'll defiantly be coming back soon!
Great location and honest no frills accommodation
Kenneth was a lovely host and his boat is amazing! We will definitely be booking this boat again in the future. My children loved thee boat too....especially their cabin they slept in was like a little den! Lots of things to see and do! Best experience I have had and I would 100% recommend booking a stay on Kenneth's boat! 🎖
amazing yacht in an amazing location
the boat is wonderful, as is Ken, the owner, nothing was too much trouble for him and he couldn't do enough to help us get acquainted with the boat, we had an amazing stay and will definitely use it again next time we stay in Liverpool
Liverpool from the water
What a Fantastic stay we had in Liverpool. Lovely Yacht made very homely. Great surrounding area, Albert Docks, with Restaurants, Café’s, Bars and more. Highly recommend a stay on this Yacht if you are ever in Liverpool. Thank you Kenneth, Looks like we are racing in Liverpool again next year. I hope to stay again.
It was brilliant being able to stay so close to the conference venue and quite special getting to stay in the heart of Albert Dock. As sailors it was nice to be able to be so well located and get our fix staying on a comfortable boat - we slept really well! The owner was really nice, even when we had to change our arrival time, and was very welcoming when we did arrive. He also responded quickly and clearly to our queries in the weeks before we arrived.
All ship shape for NYE
Kenneth was prefect host from thecstart answering any questions n queries we had before our arrival. Upon arrival Kenneth took time to explain the boat clearly and simply for us land lovers. Very friendly gentleman and flexible with our departure time. We had booked Gabrielle for NYE. This was the correct decision.the boat with its central heating was warm and comfortable ans suprisingly spacious. The showers were powerful and water steaming hot. Very comfortable boat ideally located for exploring Liverpol. Will fefinately book Gabrielle again.
Had one night on very comfortable boat right in the heart of the city centre. Location was perfect and at a very reasonable rate for a Saturday night. Kenneth was very helpful and flexible with regards to check in and check out. Would highly recommend.
Great communication from the outset and flexibility on arrival and departure times etc excellent location for bars restaurants and shopping and a great nights sleep. 10/10
We stayed on this lovely boat at the weekend and it was amazing, had girls aged 9 - 14yrs and they are asking to do it again. Kenneth was super helpful and very welcoming, highly recommend
Ken was the ultimate host i met him before he went on holiday he shown me how everything works fabulous stay, will definitely be staying again early spring next year. I have recommended this to many of my friends Thanks again.
Great weekend in Liverpool
Perfect location for attending The Arena or musical event. SO whether you are a boat person or not, Kens friendly easy going style will help you get your stay off to a good start. With bars and restaurants on your doorstep, it was a wonderful stay!!
First stay with Beds on Board, can't thank Kenneth enough. His beautiful yacht served us in style, with plenty of room for all six of us. Even our eldest at 6ft 5"! It was bliss to wake up in the heart of the city after a peaceful nights sleep. All facilities on board were great and we had the added bonus of the showers at the dock. A huge thank you Kenneth, when we plan our next trip we will be in touch 😀
Our first 'Beds on Board' Experience - not going to be our last!!!
We were a little excited to say the least when we first arrived, our charming host was ready and waiting for us. We stepped on board and he invited us into his kingdom which became 'ours' for the next two days. We were showed the ropes as it were and he left left us feeling confident and happy. The location in Albert Docks is surrounded by restaurants, pubs and coffee shops, as well as tourist attractions and museums. It was perfect for our mini break. We have since recommended it to friends and family with no reservations.
Kenneth met us and showed us around boat which is in a excellent location to visit a great city
Lovely time on the boat. Ken was fantastic host.
