At our recent VisitEngland assessment we are pleased to say that for the ninth year in a row we again achieved our Five Star rating. This year was a bit more special than even that! We are thrilled and proud that we also received the prestigious and rarely given Gold award. This accolade is for those who go the extra mile for their guests. While star ratings are based on a combination of quality, range of facilities and level of service offered, Gold awards are based solely on quality. We really feel that this award cements our position as the premier canal and river hotel boat in England.
