I've just come back from a lovely weekend cruising on the Drummer Girl and had to post a comment to recommend Silsden Boats. The boats are great; very clean, fitted with all mod-cons, comfortable and easy to use. Most importantly though, the staff are lovely - very friendly, professional and so patient when we were asking all our questions! The day before we were due to return the boat, we had a call from the staff to let us know they had spotted a nail sticking out of the tyre of our car which was parked in the yard. Not the sort of news we wanted to hear (!) but we really appreciated being called, rather than leaving it until we got back the next morning. Thank you Silsden Boats - we will hopefully be back next year!

A friendly welcome awaited us and a swift hand-over meant we were on our way within an hour. We had an extremely pleasant seven days in fine weather on a splendid boat. The only slight drawback was the extreme effort required on one or two of the 'swing bridges' which of course is nothing to do with Silsden Boats,who we would willingly recommend to anyone considering narrowboat hire on the Leeds-Liverpool canal.

Foursunny days in June on Golden Dale. Lovely boat, scenery, other boaters & people at Silsden boats. We've tried other hirers and Silsden are the best.

Just back from our second holiday with Silsden Boats and what a fantastic time we had. Had a mishap with the loo but was speedily repaired by Steve, who is very friendly and an asset to Silsden Boats. Thank you for the returning gift of chocolates and card that was left in the boat for us. Will be back next year.

Just such a fantastic experience from the moment we arrived in the car we were greeted warmly and given every assistance. The explanation of the boat operation was through and well given. All our questions were answered clearly and we were soon on our way. The boat was well appointed and clean and comfortable. We had a narrow boat (sofie's drum), you need to be friendly! Perhaps were should have looked at wider craft, but draw back is you cannot pair up in locks. The experience on return was equally pleasant and once moored and unloaded we were on our way. Great company would recommend without question. (It was so good we left banana cake for cleaners !!!)
Thank you Silsden Boats

When things go wrong, you get to hear about them pretty quickly. When things go right, you tend to hear nothing at all. Having just arrived back from another terrific holiday on the L & L, I wanted to give you some feedback. We have been boating for 35 years or so. In fact we first hired from Silsden Boats in the early 1980s, well before its current incarnation. Over that period we have hired all sorts of boats from all sorts of hire firms. Hiring from you is always a pleasure, and here's why:


• Attractive, high quality boats, well maintained and very well presented


• You make the customer feel special with what feels like a personal service


• Really efficient show-round/ handover, which takes into account previous experience


• Amazingly friendly staff ensure a good experience from booking to bringing the boat back (This makes all the difference.)


• Staff are skilled, informative, endlessly patient and helpful


• You do 'what it says on the tin' - the service is always that bit better than expected, and never the other way round


• Other hirers sometimes make me feel like just a chunk of their income stream. That's never the case at Silsden For special thanks, could I single out the guy who helped us set off, and who brought us back in, each time turning the boat around with enviable ease ? He is a great advert for the company, and his people skills are brilliant. He was helpfulness itself, and a mine of useful information. He got the holiday under way with a smile and greeted us like friends when we got back. Magic ! Many thanks for a great holiday. We'll be back !
