About Houseboat Hotels

Houseboat Hotels offer a unique guest experience within fully equipped, static houseboats situated in Sheffield’s Victoria Quays. All fully heated boats are just a 5-minute walk from Sheffield city centre. Each cosy, individually decorated houseboat provides guests with full bathroom facilities with hot water, a well equipped kitchen for self-catering, a flat-screen TV, and hot air heating. At an additional cost, guests can enjoy full English or continental breakfasts, which are refrigerated prior to arrival for preparation at the guests’ leisure. There is also discounted entry to the Hilton Hotel’s Living Well Health Club available, which includes a gym, swimming pool, steam room, and hot tub. With a variety of activities on offer, Houseboat Hotels are a 10-minute walk from the famous Crucible Theatre, home of the World Snooker Championships. A 10-minute drive will bring guests to the Meadowhall Retail Park and the premier concert venue, Motorpoint Arena Sheffield.

The boats are unfortunately unsuitable for disabled guests who are either wheelchair users or have mobility problems. With a prior arranged parking permit, car parking is free if guests leave their vehicle in the car park for the duration of their stay. A token is left on each boat to use at the exit barrier. However, if guests choose to leave the car park and then return, a charge is made at the barrier for each subsequent exit. Parking is also available at the adjacent car park to the Quays at an additional charge. Please note there is parking directly in front of the boat for one car per boat. Please note that the total price of the reservation is taken on the day the reservation is made.

Interesting location. Well-equipped and staff were responsive.
Minor issue but didn't realize before that the water wasn't drinkable.

Hotel with a difference

5.00/5.0
Excellent place to stay. We were looking for something a bit different to take our 2 grandchildren for a few nights. Couldn't have made a better choice. Only a 10 minute walk into the city cente. Great accommodation, very clean, beds really comfortable, the shower was better than a lot of hotels. The boat is surprisingly roomy and there is lots of storage space.There is a lovely cafe a few yards away where you can get a really nice breakfast at a reasonable price. The owner of Houseboat Hotels is a very friendly and helpful person. Would definitely go back.

Very good

4.15/5.0
Beautiful boat moored on an attractive restored, quiet quay with a bar and cafe to hand and town centre 10-15 min walk. Its quirky and definitely not a chain hotel. If you want something different and don't mind the limited space, in every other respect it's a beautiful place to stay
Its a boat so it is cramped for 3 adults and the main bed was too soft for us. Had I been by myself, or perhaps just a couple, I would have loved it

Magical - children and adults alike loved it.

4.40/5.0
Beautiful boat. FANTASTIC for children. LOTS of fish around the boat - that are very interactive when fed...much to the glee of small children. Lovingly decorated. Has everything you need. TV addict 7yr old did not turn on the TV even once in 2 days - but he played with all the board games and his own home-made fishing rod. Nice shower. Even has a heated towel rail. Can park right outside the boat.
Small points only: Bed was a bit soft for me (I have a bad back) The chemical loo was a bit annoying - but functioned fine. Quite a nightmare to find...even when you know where it is AND have Google Maps... or maybe that was just me! During the daytime it can be quite busy outside the boat with folks passing by right outside the boat - but somehow it didn't really matter even when sitting out on the deck. Also is close to main roads - but again - goes very quiet by evening time. It felt private enough.

a great alternative to the usual hotel accommodation

4.60/5.0
Great choice of accommodation which lived upto expectation and is somewhere we would definitely stay again if returning to the area.
Would have liked to had more shelf space for bits and pieces but this was the only negative

Unique and special

4.60/5.0
Very inviting with lots of little extras, cosy and pretty and very original - really something different! Would have liked to stay longer.
We struggled to find a nice place for dinner nearby and got a bit lost in a slightly dodgy neighbourhood, but perhaps that was lack of planning on our side...

Unique little hotel, very pleasant

4.80/5.0
This is a unique place to stay, it was absolutely wonderful! It is absolutely nothing like an average hotel - there are plenty around and all are more or less the same. These boats are something very different. They are "parked" in a very quite place, you are very close to the city centre but you don't hear any noise. You have the full set of facilities, including fully equipped kitchen (it even has an oven!) so you can cook proper meals for your family and save on eating out. It has a TV, a music system, even a few board games. The boat is not huge but there is enough space for a family. Theoretically, you can sleep up to 5 people in there, so it's a good value for money if you have a large family. It was warm, shower works fine, everything is nice and clean. Overall experience is very nice, we truly enjoyed it and will not hesitate to stay their again!
Nothing really, this boat hotel is strongly recommended!

LOVED IT!!!

4.80/5.0
An absolutely wonderful, very unique and charming experience.. peaceful even in the middle of the city, beautiful, comfortable, cosy, romantic.. far better than any hotel!!! Location is perfect.. There's a bar and small café right next to the boat and the town centre and nearest tram station is only a 5 minute walk. A very special gem.. we didn't want to leave
Only word of warning is don't drink the water on board - take bottles
