I am the proud owner of The Four Sisters Boatel, a first for Scotland we are luxury, 4 star, self catering, static,wide beam house boat accommodation, located in Edinburgh city centre. We offer not only luxury comfortable accommodation but a unique, personal experience in itself that will add a memorable unique twist to your special stay in Edinburgh.
I am a young entrepreneur born and bread in Edinburgh i am always on hand to help you with tips and advice or if you need anything during your stay. I have been operating The Four Sisters Boatel for 3 years and enjoy meeting my guests and ensuring their stay is unforgettable.
We are located in the newly re generated Edinburgh Quay on Fountainbridge only a 10 minute walk to Edinburgh castle and the old town and 10 minutes from The west end of Princes Street. We are surrounded by some of Edinburgh's top restaurants and bistros yet the quiet and tranquillity in the basin and on board will make you forget you are in the city centre of Edinburgh.
