Canal Boat Club - Our Member Testimonials

Don't take our word for it - See what are members are saying:-


"over the past 20 years or so, our experience of dealing with Canaltime and then Canalboat Club has been very good and our annual trips on the canals great fun, escaping to another world. Many times we finished with the comment "that was the best yet."

Barry Luckie


"May I also take this opportunity to say I think this has been an excellent investment from our perspective. Timeshare historically has had a bad press, our experience of the Canalboat Club could not have been better, we think it has been excellent value for money, well organised, extremely enjoyable and you in particular have been excellent with the way you have been able to deal with changes, especially over the past 18 months or so"


"I would like to take this opportunity to say that we have thoroughly enjoyed using the timeshares and to thank you for all your help and assistance over the years it has been greatly appreciated."


"We just returned from our week on 'Easy does it' from Alvechurch Marina. We have always had great reception at the marinas but I particularly wanted to call Alvechurch out as being really efficient, friendly, helpful and going a little bit further than expected with recommendations/leaflets for pubs enroute and advice"


"My wife and I would like to comment on the marina at Anderton. Having used Alvercote many times (now closed) and Blackwater many times. Last month we used Anderton for the first time. Whilst all the marinas have been very good, the staff helpful and cheerful. We must comment on the presentation of the boat we took out this time. Not only was the boat clean and smart, as always, but the addition of a vase of flowers along with a welcome tray was icing on the cake.

Please pass on our appreciation to the staff and manager."


"We were shown around the boat we had recently from Gayton, Imperial Amazon, by Jason who was very professional, with enough humour to make the process enjoyable, he explained everything to us and he answered all our questions without hesitation."


"Dear Sirs Just arrived back from our first holiday with the canal boat club, we went from the Blackwater marina and would like to say what a great time we had. The staff were very helpfull and friendly, the
boat very clean which allways helps to get your holiday of to a good start."


"Just returned from an excellent week on the Kennet and Avon - weather superb. We like the new (?newer) walk-through boats"


"We have recently returned from our holiday from the Blackwater Marina - I'd just like to say how friendly and helpful all of the staff were and we would love to travel from there again. The boat was well prepared for us and we had a great week on a beautiful stretch of canal to Llangollen."

Hi all members,

"This year we went to Union Wharf, Market Harborough. Lovely Marina and the new style boat that we had was superb, it will be nice when we can always have the new style boat as we prefer the front opening. We were always used to this with the other boat club that we were with, so it is nice to have it again and sit out the front of the boat. Also with getting older it is easier to get to the front rope. The gentle man there when we arrived, helped us to load our things onto the boat, which we have not had at any other Marina."

"We have just returned from a weeks holiday starting out from the Union Wharf Marina.

We would just like to let you know how pleased we were with all the staff at the Wharf. This was our fifth year with the Club and this was the most friendly, efficient and well managed collection and return that we have had to date.

Union Wharf Marina is a credit to you."

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at Hilperton Marina and particularly liked the new style boats and the fact that our dog was allowed to accompany us. For future reference, please could you let me know which marinas have the new style boat ( open fronted for either 4 or 6 people ) and which marinas allow dogs.
Many thanks,
A Member



Just a note to let you know we had a lovely holiday on the boat from Market Harborough.

We also wanted to say that we were particularly impressed with the friendly welcome we received from the marina staff. We were even offered help with transferring our luggage from our car to the boat! - we have never had that before!

Please feel free to pass on our comments to the people at Union Wharf."
