Amazing experience on the beautiful vessel Topsey. On arrival there was a generous hamper made up of everything we needed, and we made some wonderful memories on this homely boat. The staff were all incredibly friendly and we can’t wait to come back.

We hired one of the Dundas electric boats for the day to take the kids out on the canals. The whole process was straightforward - car parking is available (pay and display) and we then had a safety talk and overview of where to go and what to do. The boat was easy to manage and all the family had a go. The canal into Bradford upon Avon is lovely and we stopped for a nice lunch there. Really friendly staff, highly recommended

My husband and I have had just the most amazing time in this canal boat. It was our first time so I was a bit anxious about working the locks. Harry very kindly walked us to a lock near by and explained how it worked. All of the staff working there are very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. It is a very relaxing experience and we have totally fallen in love with the life style. Saw some incredible wildlife , my first ever kingfisher and a few herons quietly pretending not to notice us. Stopped off at some pubs along the way. The ones on the canal were open and offering food. Some doing reduced menus at this weird time of the pandemic. We felt safe at all times, probably as the canals appeared not to be very busy. Had one little problem with the steering but made a call to Sheila in the office and they came out to fix it. It didn’t disrupt our plans at all.

We were celebrating a family significant birthday and wanted something different in Bath to the usual hotels and B&B's. I stumbled across the website for Bath Narrowboats and that they offer Boutique B&B on their barges. We stayed for 1 night on Top Dollar and it was fantastic, the décor and space were exactly what we were looking for and it was most certainly something we were looking for. The facilities were good although it would have been nice to have had a dishwasher, but that really wasn't an issue and certainly in places the boat looked a little tired i.e. end of season scuffed paintwork but again that didn't detract from our experience. The staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for us and were mortified that we hadn't told them sooner we had experienced an issue with both toilets, that was our fault and not theirs as I am sure they would have rectified sooner had we told them. I would recommend this company and would use them again. However having seen some of the other postings this does come with the healthcheck that we did only stay for one evening.
