Susan Stephens. Midi canal

The boat is well equipped but slow... I rate it 7/10.
We enjoyed being able to cruise one way.
We do not expect to do another canal cruise but would recommend Hotels Afloat to our friends.

John McDonald. Burgundy

It was the best boat we have had, having done three of these canal cruises previously. The area was pretty . Plenty of room good outside steering.
Emma was fantastic.
Needs mosquito repellant, they were a problem.
I rate the boat a 9
What did you most appreciate about the route? Pretty all the way

Tom Boycott. Canal du Nivernais

We appreciated the size and authentic look of the boats, and rated them a, 8/10.
Auxerre was beautiful and the river and Canal du Nivernais beyond were also pretty.
Generally it was a lovely cruise. If I had a recommendation, it would be to exclude the Burgundy Canal.
Hotels Afloat customer service is very good with prompt replies to emails. Good communication. Would possibly book again.
