A boat offering holidays where guests are accommodated on the boat overnight. They carry guests who book as individual customers, either on their own, as a couple, small group or occasionally can be chartered by one larger group. In the early days of hotel boats, old working boats were normally converted by adding a cabin over the hold to create accommodation for guests. Nowadays the boats are generally purpose built and provide all the modern amenities associated with modern living. Bywater’s pair of hotel boats both have central heating, fully en-suite facilities in every cabin and provision of UK domestic 240v power supply.
