Your recent holiday on Lark - Ashes Lark from Worcester

Friendly great service, made for an enjoyable holiday

Your recent holiday on Gull - Ross's Gull from Aldermaston Wharf

First class service from ABC from beginning to end. The Gull configuration suits us perfectly, and although the boat is starting to show its age it is durable and efficient. The lack of a fifth star has more to do with the canal and available routes than with the boat.

Your recent holiday on Lark - Dune Lark from Wrenbury

Good boat and well equipped, but tight for 6 adults. We were just 4. The information folder was essential and appeared to cover most things. With the best will, no one will remember all the information given out during the initial instruction

Your recent holiday on Gull - Silver Gull from Rugby Wharf

Nice people at the boat yard and the boat was nice and clean.

Your recent holiday on Wye - Gotrik from Worcester

Beds kept separating and uncomfortable also the bedding was same as ten years ago! Light didn't work in the main bathroom so at night used a torch! Cooker knobs dropped off and difficult to say when gas off or on! Fridge wobble. Windows we couldnt close at all and some very difficult if we could! Radio and CD didn't work. We went on rivers and no life jackets provided. So two star is generous. For ten years we have been loyal customers but one year we went somewhere else and it was along better standard.

Your recent holiday on Grebe - Hooded Grebe from Rugby Wharf

We buy the maps decide where to go and as long as the bout is working, everything is splendid. Perfect holiday for us.

Your recent holiday on Medway - Agnar from Whitchurch Marina

Lovely service and wonderful location, though if ABC had not been the only hire company with the style of boat we wanted, we might have though to rent elsewhere given that diesel is not included and the hire included a non-refundable damage waiver. On the plus side, we booked early enough to get a 15% discount. The boat (Medway class) we hired was well equipped and very comfortable, but did have some small problems (a grill that took forever to stay lit; non-functioning heating; stern deck plates that rattled loudly at low revs) that should not have been present. All in all, a good holiday - almost impossible not to have one on the Llangollen.

Your recent holiday on Wren - Flutist Wren from Rugby Wharf

The boat was clean and well prepared. Everything worked well and was up to a very high standard. The boat was handy for two people and the dog loved it. Cruising the South Oxford was a joy with lovely scenery, villages and of course pubs!

Your recent holiday on Nene - Bragi from Gailey Wharf

Det mesta var bra, det enda var väl köksredskapen som inte var hundra. Knivar som var slöa och köksredskap som inte fungerade riktigt. Annars så hade det blivit 5 stjärnor.

We had a great weekend, weather was perfect and the boat was all we needed to enjoy the canals around Birmingham

Your recent holiday on Goose - White Fronted Goose from Hilperton

Everything ready on time.

Your recent holiday on Wren - Marbled Wren from Reedley Marina

Boat layout was very good and worked very well for us. Boat was very quiet runner so was relaxing. The steering however was extremely heavy and demanding making tight manoeuvres a real chore. Our chosen route was a scenic delight but due to some poor maintenance, heavy lock gates and annoying anti vandal measures proved harder going than expected. The swing bridges were also frustrating. Some of this is because we were only a 2 person crew.

Your recent holiday on Weaver - Spectacled Weaver from Anderton

The boat was beautifully clean and working perfectly. Staff friendly, helpful an relaxed.

Your recent holiday on Gull - Yellow Legged Gull from Wrenbury

Absolutely superb holiday, a totally relaxing time away. Very impressed with quality of boat and all provisions, interior decoration and professionalism of staff at the boat yard. Everything had been thought of and provided for. The countryside and scenery was second to none, it's a definite must for a future holiday again.

Your recent holiday on Thrush - Whites Thrush from Alvechurch

The boat was very tired, as was the linen. The staff at the booking office and also the checkin/sign off area were fantastic. I was disappointed though that the 'comment' form of problems was put straight in the rubbish bin without action...... one of our issues was dangerously hot water in the shower, which could cause severe burns. Don't ask for customer comments if you're not going to action them, most customers try to be postitive and helpful when filling out such a page.
