A magical stay
Simon and Sarah are wonderful hosts and have a beautiful, well equipped and cosy house boat. We had a truly memorable stay and it was just the tonic we all needed. Idyllic! We are already planning a future stay. Thank you once again for your hospitality.
A peaceful haven
We had a lovely long weekend on this houseboat. It was comfortable, cosy and peaceful. We had everything we needed, it was very well equipped, and so quiet, you forget you are in the centre of London. Sarah and Simon are excellent hosts and communication was excellent. We would love to stay here again.
Our first time to stay/sleep on a boat
We stayed our first few days in a very nice hotel on the Thames in London, and frankly we were not in a hurry to leave and move to the boat. However once we got the tour and quick start operating instructs from Joy we were smiling. We could sit in the wheelhouse and drink coffee in the a.m. that we bought at the nearby St. Pancras Train Station. And cook breakfast with the groceries that we got at the nearby Waitrose. It was a very convenient short 1/2 mile walk to the Kings Cross rail station and if you did not want to have your picture taken on Platform 9-3/4 you could zip off to Kew Gardens or take a fast Javelin Train to the coast for a day at the beach or to Cambridge to go punting behind the colleges. We watched countless narrow boats pass our floating hotel room, each as colorful and reflective of their owners personality as they were quiet. In all we loved our time on the boat and will hopefully get to repeat our visit again.
Peace and tranquility in London
Loved it so much that I tried to book it again the same week but it was full. Book it love it, if you can never leave it.
Weekend stay on Galatee
We have just had a really fun weekend on Galatee. Sarah and Simon introduced us to the boat and explained everything in great detail when we arrived. We felt very much at home and were happy to just relax and enjoy our time on the boat as it is so peaceful . The location is brilliant with a shop round the corner and a pub too. It’s easy to walk to many bigger shops or restaurants or Chapel Market or Kings X. Or just stroll along the towpath, there is so much to see in the area. The boat is extremely well equipped and has everything you need. Only thing is maybe extra blankets for the beds if it’s chilly at night. A lovely stay and was perfect for my 60th birthday tea party ! Thank you Sarah and Simon.
Beautiful boat with idyllic surroundings and amenities
The perfect mooring location sets this boat apart from others as you have a private area beside the boat to relax and enjoy the canal. On board, the boat has everything you could possibly need to have a comfortable and restful stay. The ability to use the rowboat is also a plus. The owners are wonderful, easy to coordinate with, left detailed information and a fridge full of breakfast for us to enjoy. Would definitely recommend and hope to go back.
