It was not as clean as I would have liked. It felt a bit rundown. It was a bit like 'glamping' for the weekend.
The location was ideal and it had the novelty factor for the children.

the half full bottle of massage oil in the bedroom
It's a boat
November 25, 2014
The toilet facilities were a bit unusual but being on a boat understandable and there was a wash block if people are uncomfortable with it. WIFI didn't work which was hard with teenagers.
Location was great, really pretty canal boat, cosy with plenty of extras such as massage chair, books, games, DVD's and CD's. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Having to put toilet roll in the bin but understand that it's necessary
Original break away in lovely, cosy accommodation
November 1, 2014
Like others have said the shower room and bunk area smell none too fragrant. The sofa bed is painfully uncomfortable - don't expect a good night's sleep.
The massage chair was a nice touch. Also we were allowed to store our bags on board after checkout until our departure which was helpful and kind.

The spider nets inside the boatel
The idea of the boatel. It is in the heart of Edinburgh. It is very close to Tesco, cash machines, Main Street and 20 minutes walk to Edinburgh castle. It is warm.

The smell of the septic tank under the child's bottom bunk.
Great location, fun being on a boat-something a bit different, very relaxing massage chair, comfortable beds in the double rooms. Friendly service from the "Skippers"

Bit cramped, buts that's boat living for you. Dont go if you suffer from Claustrophobia!
It was unusual, and unique. Never stayed on a boat before. Kids excited. Great location for exploring Edinburgh. Walk to Castle and loads of restaurants, Tesco's close by. Nice to have kitchen facilities, two bedrooms and living space. Good selection of DVDs.

Bedding had small dead flies, other bed full of crumbs. Cleanliness was poor
September 25, 2013
Didn't like the toilet, only human waste to be flushed...toilet paper (after use) to be binned (not pleasant). The smell in the childrens bunk bed area wasn't too good.
Loved the houseboat overall, it had lots of facilities and the location was great. It was very cosy and comfortable and a unique experience.
