Fantastic boat from the outside but bedrooms very small with not much storage space. my elderly dad slept in the front single bed and each morning the sheets were soaking wet due to the window seal being damaged.A man came and stuck some tape over the seal but the dampness continued the whole week and we had to dry the sheet off every morning.Also duel steering is great but when weather was bad and we had to steer from the inside the windows are angled so it is difficult to see out of.
On a more cheerful note the wildlife was excellent,we saw lots of Herons,a kingfisher,ducks swans and we even saw a deer one morning. At Oulton broad theres a park and the squirrels are really tame and will eat out of your hand.
The Ferry house at Surlingham has a lovely atmosphere and food not too bad.
Best meal ever is in the Waveney on Oulton broads, we go there every year and the food is fantastic,especially the pies.
The Berney arms next to berney windmill has a great atmosphere,the pub is three miles off the road and the staff have to trek across the farmers fields for supplies,the staff are lovely,pool table,darts,tv,draughts,chess,bar skittles,dominoes.
Great breakfast at the stracey arms,friendly welcome.
Don't eat at the swan horning,very expensive,small amounts my cod was grey and tasteless.
Will come again next year but better boat although supermore cost nearly two thousand and we think it should have been in better condition for the money. Also there was some unprofessionalism within the company that we went with. Firstly we paid £40 for "undercover parking" and when we arrived, we were told that there was no undercover parking and so we had to leave the cars in the outside car park for a week. But outside parking should have only cost £30 and we were not refunded the £10 extra for undercover parking. Also we put down a £200 deposit for fuel for the boat, and at the end of the week we had only used half a tank of fuel, and we were told this by the company, and yet we were only given £60 back from our deposit which in my opinion should have been £100 as we only used half.
