Prefer the broads, lots more places to eat and drink with much more mooring available

Excellent holiday all round. No disappointments apart from having to hand back the boat.

Scirocco is a sea going vessel which has been adapted for river cruising and consequently handling at low speed is a bit tricky at first. The accommodation is comfortable and clean and the heating and hot water system is the best I have experienced outside the 'luxury yacht' market. Some reviews highlight the height restrictions in the cabins. Whilst this is correct, one has to understand that boating (unless you have millions to spend) is about living in compact conditions and enjoying the cameraderie. If you cannot cope with living at close quarters then stay away from river boats! Another comment is that the deck of the boat is very high for getting on and off at locks etc. This is true if you don't know how to handle a boat, however, it is unfair that the inexperience of a skipper should lead to criticism of the vessel itself. I have chartered many craft in the past, both inland cruisers and offshore sailing yachts, and Scirocco is up there with the best of them.

Lovely boat, not obvious it was a hire boat. Very thirsty re- electricity, therefore cooker etc not great . My husband found it different to handle compared to other river boats we've had but soon got hang of it. Quite tricky to move around outside of as no grab rail but fine if all adults aboard. Thoroughly enjoyed trip.

Boat was fantastic, best looking hire boat available, easy to handle and inside wasn't too cramped. Would be a struggle with 4 adults though. Boat came with everything you'd need and cruising towards Henley and Marlow was great 4 day cruise

The main disappointment was that we could not venture upstream of Osney Bridge, Oxford. The bow-thrusters are a great boon for maneuvering the craft. Cooker and TV did not work as they should. I would have preferred the "old" propane cooking option. However, we did dine out and moored at a different pub/ restaurant every night and never paid a mooring fee accordingly ! Bedroom in bow section is very comfortable, but I was woken up by condensation dripping onto my face from horizontal port-hole on occasions, lol !!

The inside was cramped and we kept hitting our heads. The TV did not work - despite a call to the boatyard.
