We had a wonderful family gathering on Caversham Royal, with 11 0r 12 sleeping aboard most nights - altogether 21 people spent a night on board. It was ideal for this. The boat is old and we had to have 2 pumps renewed during the week but this was done with grace by Andy. We found the power of the boat perfectly adequate for cruising and manoevring.

The boat had seen better days, very dated . Kitchen equipment was good. Expected a classier standard of cabin for the money.

Spot on, we loved it! All of the staff at Caversham boat yard are very helpful and made us all feel very welcome.

Overall a fantastic holiday. Excellent boat, big but easy to handle if you have some boating experience. However probably not the best boat if all holidaymakers are boat novices, probably better to start with something smaller. Boat was clean and in good condition. Advertised as sleeping 12, but that's impractical. Cabins are all small and the double beds are about 5 foot long and 4 foot wide, which is extremely cramped for adult couples. Plus little storage space for clothes etc. Bedroom space for max 8 people with 4 in main living area, so ideally suited for 2 couples plus up to 4 children. Plenty of crockery and utensils, plus fridge space. Caversham boat staff were all very pleasant and helpful, can highly recommend and would definitely use again. Mini welcome packs in kitchen and bathrooms were a nice touch. On the River, there are lots of places to refuel, add water and dispose of rubbish, with the lock staff generally being very pleasant. We loved it !

We took this boat for a weekend break and overall were very pleased with the trip. We were a party of 10 including a two year old. The boat was very well stocked with kitchen equipment, plates, cups etc. and plenty of storage space. It was easy to handle and good fun manoeuvering through the locks. We found all the staff we dealt with to be very helpful and friendly.

Really enjoyed the weekend. Staff were great. Boat is getting a little tired but that iss justified in the price. Wouldn't pay the extra premium for summer months, we were 3 couples.... wouldn;t of wanted any more than that. But had a great weekend overall and have already recommended to friends

The boat was very tired and broke down at start of weekend so had to transfer boats after 2 hours of trying to fix it. the 'new boat' broke down the following morning and therefore could not go anywhere again until fixed. Very small area for sleeping would not want more than 8 people on the boat. (slept up to 12) On the plus side the people that run the boatyard were extremely friendly and did everything to put the problems right and compensated us for our disruption.

Had a great time, big boat so plenty of room and still fits through the locks easily. We went up to Oxford and then back down as far as Henley on a 4 night midweek break.

Very good. Not the newest boat but did exactly what we needed it to. Slept 6 adults comfortably. Staff from Caversham Boat Services were friendly and helpful. Plenty to see and do as you make your way down the Thames. Will use again.

This boat is a little dated but ideal for the larger family with a large dining/ communial area. Main shortfall was a lack of power, the boat is governed to a walking pace which is sometimes border line for safety when turning against the current etc.

we enjoyed our boating holiday, staff at boat yard were very helpful sorting out any items missing or not working,but the boat is generally tired. the front toilet is totally unusable for anyone less able to move about. the locking / security side of the boat needs addressing too. we choose this boat for the number it can sleep, but it is a squash with 11 people.
