One often hears, "it was a once in a lifetime experience". Well my 2 adult daughters and I had JUST THAT with our 6 day adventure aboard the Hotel Boat Kailani!!!!!! First time for us to do the canals and such beautiful and lovely scenery. We left Berkhanpsted and ended in Little Venice. But that was just a small part of the Beauty of it all! The Kailani is a magnificent boat, so skillfully handled by Gordon and Dorenda. Everything: linens, place settings, 4 course dinners, freshly baked sweets twice a day with tea, interesting history lessons while chatting and helping with the locks....all so very peaceful and relaxing. The only 'down' point was having to disembark after 6 glorious days....we truly were sad to leave the boat and its professional and warm hosts. We laughed and ate our way though the entire trip and it flew by!!! We MUST return and we WILL!!!!!! Thank you Dorenda and Gordon!!!! Thank you for your lovely comments. It was our pleasure to have you all on board.
If you are looking for a relaxing break away from it all---this is it. We did three nights from Caversham to Windsor and it was our first experience of a hotel boat. From the warm welcome received from G&D nothing was too much trouble. Our cabins were well appointed and spotless with clean good quality bedding and towels which were replenished daily. The trip on the Thames was so restful watching the wildlife, getting off for walks into Sonning, Henley and Marlow finishing with a trip to the castle in Windsor. G even got the boat in close to the castle for that 'Kodak moment'. This will definitely not be our last trip and we would thoroughly recommend it. Well done to G&D.
Thanks for your kind remarks. Glad you enjoyed your time with us
