We booked the Southern Comfort for a private hire for our joint 70th & 65th birthdays with 60 guests, from the initial visit to the evening of the party the staff couldn’t have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

We arranged with a local butcher for a hog roast, and booked a DJ for the upper deck.

Our party was all ages from 8 to 80 but everyone had fun and felt welcome on board.

The staff were amazing and made us all feel welcome from the captain to the lovely bar staff.

Would definitely recommend for a party venue with a difference.

I went on holiday with a coach company and part of a day out they took us for a trip on the paddle steamer .
I walk with a stroller as I have a servere spinal curve and cannot stand for long .
The driver of the coach said to myself and another two people on the coach with wheel chairs go strait down to the boat ant the lady and man will help you on first before other people get on .
The three of us went down to the boat the man who did the commentary on the boat helped the people on who were in the two wheel chairs he took the chairs off them and they walked in with there partners .
He came to me and shouted who said you could come down the front of the queue he said this in front of the people who were queuing I did feel very small as he had a lowed voice and every one was listening .
I replied the coach driver as I am on my own and need assistance to come on the people with the wheel chairs have partners with them to help them get on .
He moaned and started letting people on and made me weight about 25 people got on and then he said you next and got the lady to help me on .
I have never felt so embarrassed in my life he made me feel like something stuck to his shoe when I got on the other people couldn't believe how I was treated by him infact a couple went and bought me a cup of tea .
This man should not have discriminated between different disabilities which he did . He needs to retrain on his customer service especially to disabled people .
I hope he reads this and reflects on his actions that day .

A lovely experience with Captain Dave and his helpful crew. The trip last 90 minutes and the commentary on the wildlife and the surroundings was very informative and, at times very funny. A great way to spend the time. Highly recommended.

We had a brilliant time on the steamer last weekend. We were a party of 3 one in a wheelchair, one with mobility issues and me, helping them both.

I had checked previously about disabled access and was advised that it was fine. The ramp to get on was easy to manoeuvre and not too steep so it was easy to push the wheelchair up. The downstairs cabin was spacious enough, there were 3 wheelchairs on our trip and there was lots of room.

We positioned ourselves so that my aunt was facing front so she could see out of both sides which was great.

There was a commentary on the outward part of our journey, and what I could hear of it was really interesting but it was much too quiet, neither my mum, nor my aunt could hear it all and because we were sat in the busy bar area it was almost impossible to hear.

The hostess did ring up to the skipper but it didn't seem to increase the volume which was a real shame.

The staff on the boat were all very friendly and helpful getting on and off the boat and we had a lovely afternoon.

We didn't need the toilet but I didn't notice any disabled facilities so that may be worth bearing in mind. There are public toilets at the car park next to where you board the boat with radar key access to the disabled toilet which was nice and clean when we used it.

I would definitely recommend it for a day out xx

Came here with my Mum as a nice day out when I came to visit her. A really lovely experience, the boat itself is lovely. We started out upstairs for the view but ended up making our way to the bar, because it would be silly not to! Started with a coffee and then moved onto a G&T and a pint of beer.
A good selection of drinks on board!

The cruise on the Broads was lovely. The commentary was interesting and very funny. What really made it was the friendliness of the staff. They obviously really care about what they do and their Customers.

For the price of the tickets it was an absolute bargain. I'd definitely recommend this as something to do and would happily come back.

Such a beautiful boat on the fabulous Norfolk Broads. It was a great relaxing cruise with helpful friendly welcoming crew. The commentary by the Skipper was full of relevant info but also humorous . Really well stocked bar and great coffee. Can’t fault it. I’ll definitely visit it again. Thank you for a great trip 😁

What lovely trip! Comfortable seating, wonderful views and excellent commentary.

We travelled as two 60+ couples with an elderly (92yr old) parent. Mum sat in comfort on the upholstered seating downstairs whilst the rest of us alternated between sitting downstairs with her and the seating upstairs (choice of open-air or under cover available).

Good views from all areas. Sound from PA system best downstairs or in/by the under-cover area upstairs but could still mostly be heard at the back where we sat.

Trip guide, Dave, was very knowledgeable in all areas covered: nature, history, nautical and local property information. He was also very witty and we thoroughly enjoyed his commentary throughout the outward leg of the journey. The return journey was intentionally quieter allowing time for peaceful enjoyment and reflection along the way.

Good choice of drinks available (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). We had coffees which were very reasonably priced.

All in all a thoroughly enjoyable trip and excellent value for money.

Note: We booked online a couple of days into our week’s stay but only had the choice of friday sailings as no availability Tuesday to Thursday, possibly in account of pre-booked coach parties so suggest planning ahead in good time.

This was our best afternoon out by far this year. We travelled up from Suffolk for this too. The team were really friendly. Chatty and very humorous. It was a laugh a minute with the crews narrative
