We really enjoyed our experience on the narrow boat. In terms of value for money, it has to be said it is quite a bit more expensive than say a normal cottage holiday. However, we appreciate there are a number of additional expenses and insurance required to allow novices to operate these narrow boats. The boat had great accommodation and we were able to cater for ourselves without any difficulty. Clifton Cruisers were very helpful and explained the operation of the boat before we left and ensured we had their contact number and not to hesitate to call if we got into any difficulties, which was very reassuring. Fortunately we didn't need this assistance and were able to enjoy leisurely cruising from Rugby to market Harborough and back, taking in some lovely scenery and a wide variety of the Oxford Union Canal heritage, in the shape of locks, tunnels and swingbridges.

The Sapphire has a complex electrical system, which other hire boats don't have, however if you listen to and follow the handover instructions, everything will be fine. We found the service by the staff at Clifton Cruisers excellent and very helpful.

Not the best boat we have been on. The engine made a screeching noise at a certain speed. The boat had a dishwasher but only one set of four of crockery. The fitout of the boat was to a poor standard and we had to callout the boatyard to replace a faulty electric switch.

Reason for not staying on Sapphire again is that we would not want a boat that big again.

We spent 4days in February 2015on the Sapphire, beautiful weather but really cold however the boat was lovely and warm and cosy, the boat was spotless clean, with everything on board for your convenience and comfort, no hesitation in recommending this boat, hopefully we will be able to do it all again. On arrival at the boat yard all staff were friendly approachable and helpful,a great experience.

The boat was lovely but due to its high spec ie everything being electrical needed to cruise at least eight hours a day but when on holiday you do not always want to cruise for that length of time every day, or moored up leaving engine running which is not always freindly to other boaters.

WE were disappointed with the boat because when the engine was turned off the battery became flat in a few hours and did not last the night. This meant the fridge defrosted every night, the water pump did not work so there was no water for washing or for the the toilets. We felt that a wine cooler and dishwasher were quite unnecessary.
