About Us

In 2006 Andy and I had a dream to own and operate a Hotel Boat. We wanted to cruise the Inland Rivers and Waterways of the UK combining our love of boating together with and enjoyment of meeting new people.

There have been many milestones in what has become a very successful family operated business.

In 2006 Lady Margaret and Lady Selena were built and Andy and I, together with a crew member, set off to provide the perfect holiday for our guests. We are often asked why Margaret and Selena, many thinking these are middle names that belong to Linda. Andrew had two old Aunts, that were childless themselves, and who thought the world of their nephew. When they died the money they left to Andrew enabled us to buy our boats. Their names were Margaret and Selena.

We were awarded 5 Stars by Visit Britain in 2009, a wonderful accolade and only achieved by a lot of hard work. Gold awards for food and hygiene are regularly awarded and best of all we have the wonderful testimonials from our guests.

Our overseas clientele has grown, as has our regular visitors who book year after year. In fact looking forward to meeting new and regular guests still remains one of the most exciting aspects of the job for us.

2012 was the year of change for Ladyline Hotel Boats! And it was very exciting for us both. Our new boat, Lady Rose, named after our beloved dog Rosie, is a 70ft single narrow boat, accommodating 4 guests in the spacious, luxurious surroundings our regular guests have come to expect, and is the trademark of Ladyline. We hope the names of Margaret and Selena will be kept onboard as cabin names so the Aunts story can continue. Buster has become a firm favourite with the guests, with many wanting to take him home,we hope our new girl Ruby will also become a firm friend of our guests.

We hope to welcome you to Ladyline Hotel Boats and their forthcoming season. Relaxation and tranquility remain keywords in our luxury Hotel cruises and, we will contine to improve what has already become a winning theme.
