A unique, fantastic accommodation. From the clean, comfortable cabins with all the necessities provided , to the quality , delicious breakfast cooked infront of you as you chat with the helpful Stuart , in the galley kitchen dining room . This is a unique accommodation that I would highly recommend. The boat is moored so close to all of Ely’s delights , making exploring so easy . The boat is beautifully furnished , and I was lucky to experience a hot , bubble bath within my cabin ! Sitting on deck in the evening and in the morning, you experience river life at its best . A fantastic stay , thank you Stuart.
