Family Friendly

We love kids and they will love us! When you first arrive, you’ll sense the friendly atmosphere. The Boat is somewhere you can all relax and feel at home. And at bedtime, we’ll knock on the door with fresh milk and warm cookies to help your children settle down for a good night’s sleep.

Browse through our free library of family DVDs at Reception - brilliant for watching on the TV in your room. Anything else we can do for you? Just ask. Nothing’s too much trouble at The Boat.


Children Welcome

Here to make life easier - We love it when families stay with us, kids are so important that we came up with the idea of a Children Welcome Concierge to help before you arrive and while you’re here.

Tickets and itineraries - When you make your reservation at our child friendly hotel, our children’s welcome Concierge will get in touch to find out if there’s anything they can arrange on your behalf such as tickets to shows or events, devising a dream itinerary that matches your family’s tastes and ages. Our children’s welcome Concierge will also ask you what your children love to read, watch and eat - and we’ll do our best to stock up ready for when you arrive.

Bike rides and picnics - Our reception team will greet you when you arrive and continue to be around throughout your stay. We understand that when the kids are happy, the grown-ups can relax and enjoy themselves too. So if there’s anything you need at all, please just ask. Nothing’s too much trouble. It’s what our attentive service at our family friendly hotel is all about!
