  1. The only thing we didn't like was the heat in the room, didn't even bother with the duvet just had the sheet over us and the fan on all night but had to put earplugs in to keep the noise out,in suppose putting air on in would up the prices. As for the food, we ate at the Hungry Horse pub 100yds away, much better and cheaper
  2. I just love those big Swancraft boats I wanted to have one this year but the boss woman wouldn't pay the extra so we settled on Swan Reflection which we regretted due to the very cramped toilet/shower area. Good write up as usual.m
  3. Great write up, really enjoyed it, we prefer the southern side, and a beautiful looking boat. One question, what was wrong with the Premier inn to be able to get a refund, we use that too and this year had a really uncomfortable night as it was so hot.
  4. That's a lot of revs even for a petrol engine, why so high I wonder?
  5. Sounds like you had a lovely time, we've had Sunday lunch at the Wayford and really enjoyed it. Have to ask if Reflection has been kept as good as Swancraft, had them, we're on Reflection1 in August and looking forward to it after being on Rapture the last twice.
  6. We were there watching that happen, he tried twice to turn across the outgoing tide to moor up then he got too close to the ferry and couldn't slow down enough. Jim

    how far away

    We did 265 miles to the Premier Inn at Norwich this year from Spennymoor in Co. Durham although we went via Peterborough to avoid the A17, think it's about 20 miles longer but quicker. Jim
  8. We were one of the boats moored at Cantley that glorious morning, fifth from the left, Swan Rapture, I was having a cuppa when I saw you cruising past, the river was almost flat calm. jim
  9. There's a Coop in Loddon may have something useful. Jim
  10. We are picking up Swan Rapture on Friday, and heading north on Saturday until Wednesday so here's hoping for fine weather for our first Breydon crossing. Jim
  11. Premier Inn at Broadlands business park for us, lovely clean room and it's own restaurant but we had brekkie at Sainsburys just down the road for half the money plus you can shop there too. Tried Acle travelodge 2 years ago and at £19 was a bargain but a tad scruffy, glad to hear it's been refurbished, well placed for the rivers tho. Jim
  12. We had Roy's garlic chicken too Robin, think you'll enjoy it. Jim
  13. Star Gem 6 was our first ever boat, we were staying at a caravan site and fancied having a go at cruising so looked around Richardsons yard, talked to staff there who let us on board some boats to check them out and that's how we ended up with her. Have to agree she is a great couples boat, very keenly priced, comfortable and easy to helm, we had a lovely time on her. Jim

    NYA boat sales

    Just browsing at NYA site and they have an Aquafibre 31 for sale and the photo shows Swan Reflection2, would this really be Swancrafts boat up for sale or just to show what type of boat it is. It's a 2012 boat so wouldn't have thought Swancraft would part with a 2 year old boat. Jim
  15. Me too, missed my fix this week especially as we will be doing south to North this time round. Jim
