“Wonderful Easter cruise down the Thames”
Reviewed 14 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Geanna is a well equipped broad beam river boat with 3 separate bedrooms plus additional areas that comfortably slept our large family of 7. Jayne provided a good overview of Geanna on our arrival along with a guided trip upstream and through our first lock. Geanna's size looks daunting at first but she is very gentle and easy to control as long as you take things steady. Her galley was well equipped although we only used it for cooked breakfasts and booked dinner at various pubs on our route.

All the family pitched in, operating locks and handling berthing, ropes, and tying her up every stop. The leisurely pace of a river trip allows you to slow down and talk or read or just watch the countryside pass by. A very relaxing 4 days.

“Lovely four day family cruise Henley to Windsor and back”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Having been on Geanna in July for a friends 50th birthday weekend we booked the boat for a family four day cruise with our three teenagers and two dogs. The kids had not been on a cruise before and were worried and excited at the same time. From Henley we stopped overnight at Cookham and then on to Windsor and returned again via Cookham. We were lucky with the weather and the kids enjoyed helping at the locks and driving the boat under supervision. We all enjoyed the passing scenery, the relaxed pace and the friendly banter from the lockkeepers and other crews. The dogs also enjoyed the many swims and walks. The boat was comfortable and spacious and had all the amenities we needed for 4 days. A very enjoyable and different family short break.

“Good location in Henley”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The boat is well equipped. Eight of us were celebrating my husband's 65th birthday. Little cramped in rooms for travel cots but we managed. Boat trip was fun.

The lavatories were our biggest problem. We understood they would be changed daily. Jane Asher runs the boat alone now and said they would be changed each morning. However, we had to replace two ourselves. She came to change them at 8.30 in the evening when we were having supper and two of the rooms were occupied by sleeping children. Not ideal. She did seem to be in a constant rush and we could not choose the time of the boat trip which had to be from 9.30am - 11am Sunday morning. As we had paid almost £900 for three nights, I did feel that were treated in rather an off hand manner.

“Up there with the best”

We boarded the Geanna for a couple of nights for a girly birthday break.
The boat was more than comfortable, ultra cosy but sufficiently planned out so that it didn't feel cramped.
The mooring has views up and down the river and is close enough to town if supplies are needed.
The hosts Jane and Alan were exceptional. Alan gave a one member of our crew a thorough briefing at the start about the boat.
The cruise was indeed a highlight and included a chance to drive it too.
A small item was left aboard and they contacted us to check if it was ours and then returned it promptly in the post with a handwritten card. A big thanks for that!
All in all - a top reccommendation for anyone looking for something a little different.

“Simply perfect”

Boat Geanna is the perfect alternative to a hotel for getaway. We were a group of friends celebrating a birthday and we just couldn't have asked for anything more perfect for our trip.

Alan met the first to arrive for handover (which was me) and he's so helpful, knowledgeable, professional and friendly.

The boat was equipped with everything you could need for a weekend with the exception of food and drink; although saying that doesn't do Jane and Alan justice as there was even bottled water in each room, tea bags and a packet of quality filter coffee to go with the cafetiere on board. This lovely couple have given so much thought to the comfort of their passengers that I was actually more comfortable here than many luxury hotels I've stayed in over the years.

We were moored at Henley which is beautiful and we were blessed with sunshine for our weekend, I hope you are too. Jane and Alan took us out on a 2 hour cruise early Saturday evening which was beautiful - I can't rave about this particular mooring spot enough, it surpassed every expectation.

Thank you both, we had a wonderful stay!
