“Great pet friendly narrowboat hire, lovely week :-)”
Reviewed 6 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

The owner Paul was an excellent host, answering any queries before the booking and was very flexible in his approach which we appreciated. Paul completed a comprehensive guide of the boat before we were let loose on the canal. The instructions we were given were clear and there was a hard copy guide on the boat in case we were unsure of anything.

We had a wonderful week touring the local area, even though we are from Stockport and only went as far as Whaley Bridge and back, we sampled some lovely restaurants and of course tried a few new pubs along the way, it was a great experience.

Gemini has everything you need, from a log burner on cold nights to an alfresco dining area for the Summer. I would recommend to friends and family, thanks for a great week Paul and we will hopefully see you on the canal soon.

In fact we saw Gemini recently in Bollington and Tia (our dog) jumped on board (obvioulsy lasting memories for her as well), xx

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   Yes.

“Cosy narrowboat”
Reviewed 1 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We had a weekend on the Gemini III on a cold January weekend but still had a wonderful time! The boat was cosy and warm once the woodburner was going and there was everything we needed, including constant hot water! We were novices but Paul showed us how to handle the boat and gave us lots of tips. Had a fabulous meal at canalside pub, The Ring O' Bells, in Marple. The area is beautiful with wonderful views and very friendly locals. Would thoroughly recommend booking Gemini III.

“Fantastic”

Had a great time, everything you need to enjoy a break. Never done this before but would certainly hire again and recommend. Relaxing break, everyone we meet on the canal was extremely friendly and helpful.

Full training is given before you set off on your own, Paul was very knowledgeable and we could call him anytime if needed.

I would recommend hiring this narrow boat- you don't be disappointed.
