The boat was better than expected, and rates 10/10. Appreciated the contrasting countryside and villages.
We would book with Hotels Afloat again because you were very responsive to our emails which built confidence.

The cruise was better than expected! We rate the boat 10/10. The host Tim was the best thing and we appreciated the serenity of the Nivernais Canal: A real vacation tailored to us.
Hotels Afloat attention to detail was 10/10 too. Will book again.
While The Randle can accommodate up to 4 guests, she offers the perfect choice for a couple looking for a Romantic Getaway, a unique wedding-proposal destination, honeymoon or second honeymoon!
Built by English craftsmen in 2001, the Randle has a traditional layout with modern facilities.
This lovely boat is enhanced by brass and hardwood fittings, marble and granite tops and traditional decking.
As you enter the boat via the wheelhouse, you will feel instantly at home.
You will no doubt appreciate the raised dining area for six, which gives good views over the canal and surrounding countryside.
Traditional teak flooring and leather seating contrast with a modern iPod player and Wi-Fi.
The sides of the wheelhouse can be folded down while retaining the roof to offer shade during cruising to allow the gentle breezes through while cruising.
Whether from the wheelhouse or from the upper deck where teak furniture and parasols are available, simply enjoy the beautiful scenery drift by.
If you prefer, you may like to take one of the ship's bicycles and 'race' Randle to the next stop!
