We stopped here for a coffee at lunchtime and was quite happy with the pint and coffee we had. We sat on deck under a canopy over looking the marsh and also managed to dodge the light rain. Steps down to order your drinks are very steep and a notice does tell you to walk down them backwards. Can't comment...

Stayed one night during Wells Festival 2016. We had the mates cabin (next to the captains cabin) at the rear of the ship, access via the kitchen. Really enjoyed ourselves, it is an experience and this is not the Ritz. We always visit in the winter for drinks and live music, happening place, lovely people, if you go to Wells,...

Great staff, we have stayed on the Albatross twice, once in the Captains cabin& once in a 2 bunk room, both were comfy nights. Where else can you do this at this price?? Lovely food, beers & atmosphere nothing better than eating breakfast on deck & looking out at & enjoying the view. We will be back for many more...

We were walking around the North Norfolk coast and stayed in the Captain's cabin for a Thursday and Friday night. We were very lucky with the weather and had an amazing stay. As other reviewers have said, don't expect luxury cabins as this was a working ship. It is an ideal base for Wells as it is right on the...

Must have stayed here at the same time as the previous reviewers and I have to say our experience was totally different - it was great fun. Went there for my 60th birthday, something I've wanted to do ever since finding out they rented out cabins.The band was great, the crowd friendly and the staff were lovely and very helpful....

We took a couple of cabins here on Saturday night. They are basic, which is ok. They are down a hatch and steep ladders so not for the claustrophobic. Have never slept so badly. The bar and live and were fun though - and pancakes good I just wouldn't stay again. My friend thought it novel though...so somewhat horses for...
