“Supermore, Wroxham”

Written on: 17/06/2012 by lynncob (1 review written)

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… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/08/2010

Several years ago, my then wife and I went on our first boating holiday on the Broads and it was O.K. 3 years and 5 years ago I went on my own. It was one of the best holidays I've been on for years. The friendliness of the boatyard owner at Reedham was excellent, as was the car parking. The tranquility, especially on an evening was brilliant. Other boat users were friendly, fishing was good. On my own recommendation, 3 of my friends have had family holidays down there and all enjoyed it. I'm… Read Full Review

“Hired a Sandpiper cruiser from Blakes in Aug 2008,...”

Written on: 18/09/2009

Hired a Sandpiper cruiser from Blakes in Aug 2008, costing £1400 for 1 week! This "cruiser" had 4 star rating, like previous review, I wouldn't even give it 1/2 star! The interior was dark, dingy, outdated, scruffy. The 2 double beds had double duvets crammed into single covers! Pillows were like rocks, the toilet was a joke, the "shower" was even worse, warm for 10 seconds then icy for the rest! We took the boat back a day early, I think the boatyard employees were shocked. This boat needs… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/07/2009 by pam thompson (1 review written)

This was our first experience of boating holidays. We hired an Osprey craft through Blakes Boating which was supposed to be a 4 star boat but seemed more like 1/2 star to us.

The boat was disappointing to say the least. The cleanliness of the boat in general left a lot to be desired. The windows were filthy. The crockery needed washing before we could use it.

The furniture and woodwork were tatty and battered. The outside of the boat was just as bad. It was the worst looking boat on… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/04/2008 by mike (1 review written)

Spent a week on a 44 ft boot. This was our first ever time on a boat so as you can imagine it was quite a challenge. The instruction we got was minimal and did not really prepare us for the experience. However we had a great holiday, 5 adults and one child. Some of the waterways are extremely beautiful and peaceful even in August when we went. Cooking on board was brilliant, bacon sandwiches each morning whilst cruising down the broads - brilliant. Our only gripe or struggle was parking… Read Full Review
