Handover service was good, incl the test drive. We were driven to local supermarket, some 3 km away, so that we could provision the boat with "basic" provisions... we were not told that we had to supply all sorts of kitchen cleaning ware, condiments, toilet paper, soap etc The boat was very comfortable, although not well provisioned with the basic condoments etc, as previously mentioned. Bilge pump also activated during the night (quite noisy), end bedroom shower did not drain, slow wifi. The "welcome pack" for 125 Euros is NOT worth it...just a few crackers, biscuits, jar of jam and terrine???

Everything worked as advised, no problems with the boat or navigation. Great value for the money. See parts of France missed by most tourists.

Marina ma łatwy dojazd i duży parking, można podjechać pod samą łódź. Obsługa jest uśmiechnięta i miła. Łodzie czyste i dobrze przygotowane do podróży. Hausboat Świetny, super przestronny, kabiny jak małe pokoje hotelowe, sporo szafek schowków itp. Na górnym pokładzie dużo miejsca do siedzenia, grill gazowy. Miejsce sternika na środku a to przy manewrach trochę niewygodne. Poza tym wszystko OK, polecam.

Fantastic week spent cruising on the Shannon. Boats were very well equipped and staff were helpful and accommodating. We'll be back! Fabulous boat, lots of space and very well equipped. Expensive week for a large boat. It would be great to get a more attractive discount for repeat customers. We have been going for many years and although we get the standard €100 repeat customer discount, it is not much of a reduction when the cruiser hire is €3500. 5 Stars for a fantastic holiday!
Dear Mrs M,
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are pleased to learn you enjoyed your cruise on the River Shannon and were satisfied with the customer service you received.
Thank you for your feedback on the boats - we have passed your comments onto the base teams. Your suggestion for a larger repeat bookers discount has been considered.
We look forward to welcoming you on board with us again soon!
Best wishes, The Le Boat team

Late boat delivery completed at 7:30 pm. No one at the end base spoke English until around 2 pm Excellent boar design. Best showers/cabin accommodations we have had on 15 different trips. Joy stick piloting worked perfectly. Boat was a little worn/ abused

I hired the Horizon 3 with joystick control which was excellent. However, the training should have explained tat as well as being able to reverse using directional control with the joystick when using the throttles there is also directional control in reverse. This is the first boat I have hired that has steering in reverse. Not being aware of this caused many difficult and dangerous incidents. 2 minutes of training would correct this unexpected response by the boat. Luxuriously appointed boat with 3 equal sized cabins and a large saloon. Galley was kitchen standard. Outside, upstairs space was enormous. Outside, upstairs steering position was well placed and all functional controls were available.

Great for all the pre-holiday advice but the base could have been a little more enthusiastic and welcoming. Beautiful river for scenery, exquisite little villages with delightful restaurants. Ideal for families as the river is great for fishing and swimming and paddle boarding. Biking was great too. The absolutely perfect location for a family holiday. Our family of 16 ranged from just-under-2 to 75 (on 2 boats), and we all had a wonderful holiday together.

Our boat was wonderful but delayed on pick up, which meant we really lost a day when the return is 900am. The bikes we hired in the package we are disappointment. Not all gears worked and no puncture kits or tools. The boat was well stocked and the wifi was good. We would definitely recommend to others and we will book again ourselves. One oversight was we were lead to believe we could access Lot and Basie rivers but at departure we were told no. All good though, we cycled to Nerac- a must visit. Regards John Belbeck Simply wonderful experience
