About the hotel

Unique Birmingham City Centre accommodation offering Bed & Breakfast on a floating Canal Hotelboat, with all the comforts of home. Why spend the night in a city centre soul-less hotel, or an out of town guest house, when you can stay right in the city centre aboard our cosy floating hotelboat? Our location is Gas Street Basin which is very close to Brindleyplace, Broad Street, The ICC/NIA and The Mailbox and the basin is regarded as the centre of the English canals. On board our narrowboat there are three full width cabins (6ft 10in) each with their own entrance so you can be separate from other guests.

The boat is fully centrally heated and there is a stove in the saloon for very inclement weather. There is free access to the boat at all times during your stay and staff will be on hand to assist. Luggage may be left to save carrying it with you outside check in/check out times.

weekend in a narrowboat

really enjoyable relaxing weekend in the hotel boat Katie, friendly hosts in Dave and Kathy, its cosy and so warm as the wood burner was kept up stoked the whole of the stay which means he pops in and out of the boat, it is what it says on the tin really its a narrow boat!.

not a lot of room if the boat was full it sleeps 6, but we had it to ourselves which was bonus great breakfast cooked by Kathy on board .great location near to shops, Barclay arena, restaurants but quite at night. didn't want to leave.!!!

Lovely alternative place to stay in Birmingham

'Katie' the narrowboat is located right in the middle of town, and is a lovely little base to explore Birmingham from.

We went for the Christmas markets and the boat was toasty and very cosy. Didn't spend a great deal of time on it but was comfortable enough and Dave who welcomed us on also cooked us a tasty fry up each morning. A great place to stay if you don't mind being a little cramped and want a different experience.
