Great week on the Caledonian canal . Everything that was required was on board. Staff were lovely and everyone on the canal ( especially the lock keepers) were very helpful to two very novice sailors Excellent

We found the staff to be very friendly and efficient. We found the person who trained us in the use of the boat also friendly and patient. The boat itself was in good condition when we arrived. We had a little issue with the bilge pump which was dealt with quickly and efficiently. All in all I have only good things to say regarding the boat and the service. For us it was a great holiday, allowing us the freedom to move as we wished. We went from Portumna to Carrick and also took in Lough Key - the one way nature of the trip allowing us to cover a large proportion of the beautiful waterway

Excellent customer service at Portumna base. Sarah is very friendly and helpful. Timmy gave us good tuition and Ivan provided useful information. The Consul was a fine boat. Maybe a bit tight for 4 people but well equipped, everything worked and it was easy to handle for a relatively inexperienced captain!

We received numerous emails prior to the start of our trip telling us not to arrive before our allotted departure time and reminding us to have all our paperwork completed online prior to our arrival. We even received a phone call a few days before our trip reminding us of these requests. On arrival at our appointed time there were lots of groups also trying to board their boats [at least three other families]. It was very disappointing and very worrying that there were so many people milling about. Also there were delays as other groups did not seem to have completed all the requested documentation in advance. Nobody seemed to know where we were suppose to park, even though this had been paid for in advance. The were only two trolleys to transport our belongings, as there were so many other groups we had to make numerous trips to and from our car with no trolley. We had a lovely holiday with great weather.

Good Morning, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I’m sorry that the first impression was not as you would have wanted. We try to be clear around the processes that must be followed by both our Customers and our teams and to create the right expectations. We try to stagger arrivals with the aim of minimising waiting times but it still takes some time for check-in and briefing to ensure each Customer can get away safely. Kind regards, The Le Boat Team

It was a great holiday, good service from the guys at the front desk and a special thank you to Seamus who showed us how to use the boat! The boat was great - seeing as it was the end of the season the nights were quite cold and there was no heating in the bedrooms at all - I'm not sure this is a feature on any boat, but would have been super nice if it would have been possible to heat it up a bit!

Lovely area and we enjoyed the holiday very much. Laggan base staff are very friendly and helpful. Dropped a star because they have inexplicably have deducted over £40 for two blankets from our deposit. They haven't said why or sent me any paperwork to provide details. The blankets were left on the boat and were fine. I had to phone to find out why I didn't get back the money I was expecting and the person I spoke to didn't have any information. Just leaves a bad taste after an otherwise pleasant break. Amazing scenery and peaceful lochs. It'd have been nice if there was a few more places to stop off - more public moorings near places to walk.
