It was a great holiday, good service from the guys at the front desk and a special thank you to Seamus who showed us how to use the boat! The boat was great - seeing as it was the end of the season the nights were quite cold and there was no heating in the bedrooms at all - I'm not sure this is a feature on any boat, but would have been super nice if it would have been possible to heat it up a bit!

Lovely area and we enjoyed the holiday very much. Laggan base staff are very friendly and helpful. Dropped a star because they have inexplicably have deducted over £40 for two blankets from our deposit. They haven't said why or sent me any paperwork to provide details. The blankets were left on the boat and were fine. I had to phone to find out why I didn't get back the money I was expecting and the person I spoke to didn't have any information. Just leaves a bad taste after an otherwise pleasant break. Amazing scenery and peaceful lochs. It'd have been nice if there was a few more places to stop off - more public moorings near places to walk.

From the start of our booking everything was great. Dianne at the Capetown Office was most helpful and we got all the info and advice we needed. Arriving in Benson we also had no problems whatsoever. We were upgraded - free of charge - . We loved our boat. we arranged for bicycles and this made a world of difference every time we moored. We are planning our next LeBoat ! The boat was lovely - enough space and loved lying on the deck
Thank you for your feedback. We're so glad that you had a great holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back on board another cruise soon!

We had a great trip on the Thames from the Benson Base. No issues at all. Lucy and Richard very helpful both on upon arrival and departure. No fuss. The boat was very suitable for 2, "all ship shape and shiny". We had a nice cruise from Benson to Oxford and back.
Hi Stuart, thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your cruise on the River Thames and found our base staff in Benson to be very helpful. We look forward to welcoming you back on board soon!

Все было отлично, однако у нас возникли сложности с английским с некоторыми сотрудниками. Инструкторы не подвели, было все грамотно и оперативно Отличная лодка для семьи (4 человека)

Fantastic week spent cruising on the Shannon. Boats were very well equipped and staff were helpful and accommodating. We'll be back! Had trouble starting this boat on numerous occasions. It would eventually start, but thankfully we weren't in a rush anywhere! Would give it 5 stars for a great holiday!
