Bywater Hotelboat Cruise Schedule 2018

Choosing your hotelboat cruise
There is so much to see and so many possible routes on the inland waterways it is understandably difficult to decide which particular hotelboat cruise you think you would enjoy the most. In this booklet we try and outline the character of each route, its highlights and points of interest. It is impossible to cover everything but we hope that combined with your own personal choice criteria (time of year, heritage, towns and cities etc) you will be able to pick the one for you. If you have any queries regarding any aspect of the hotelboat holiday please do not hesitate to call and we shall try and advise in anyway we can.

Kerala and Karnataka are available for charter, offering full and exclusive use of the boats, services of the crew and full-board catering. With the advantage of a sizeable reduction in price, this represents excellent value.

As well as the schedule cruises given in this booklet we can provide tailor made itineraries at either end of the season to suit your individual needs or preferences. Please contact us on 07775 850098 or email to discuss.

Single occupancy of the twin/double cabin carries a supplement of 50%. There is no single supplement for a single guest in a single cabin.

A Previous customer discount of 5% applies only to those people who have taken a Bywater Hotelboat Cruise in 2015 or 2016. Any discounts shall be accounted for in the balance payment and noted in the confirmation letter.

We endeavour with our schedules to include locations which have good travel connections as much as we can, although this is not always possible on some canals. We also avoid weekend arrivals in locations where we feel there may be disturbance from town centres on first or last evenings. This also helps our guests to avoid engineering works on rail lines and to enable them to take advantage of cheaper weekday travel on public transport whenever possible. For those arriving by car we make every effort to try and arrange secure car parking facilities at most of our locations. We hope that, with these things in mind your travel to or from your hotelboat cruise will be as easy and convenient as we can make it. Should you require any assistance in planning your travel, please don't hesitate to get in touch, we have easy access to timetables and are happy to advise wherever possible.
