Bath Boating Station Reviews
Beautiful little place to stay and at the time we went, end of summer/start of autumn, utterly secluded. An enchanted location - like fairyland. And a cosy hideaway to live in, steps from the river wi... more »
I can imagine that the other negative reviews are accurate.. I followed a lady through a gate toward the boathouse with my husband and two young children. The shed said “closed” so we sat on a bench t... more »
The staff at the Bath Boating Station were friendly and welcoming. We hired a rowing boat after visiting the Bathwick Boatman for Sunday Lunch. There were 4 adults and 1x under 4yrs child with us on the boat and we had a great time. The Bath Boating Station is in a nice location and it was a lot of fun. I think a couple of things did let the Bath Boating Station down. First of all I think the price for 1 hour is very pricey. It is £8 per adult as the prices are per person not per boat. So we could have had 2 boats for the same price but we all wanted to go in one together. You could pay an extra £4 for extra hours or chose to pay £20 per person for the whole day. There are various safety instructions listed outside of the Bath Boating Station by the kiosk that you need to follow when hiring a boat and you must bring the boat back within the scheduled time or you incur a charge. I think the opening hours need to be made clearer as some people were getting confused thinking they could still go down to the Boating Station and hire a boat until 17:30 when actually they close at 16:30 and boats have to be returned by 17:30. Overall we enjoyed the experience however I probably wouldn't do it again unless the price was made cheaper or they did like a family package deal.
A friendly place to hire, either a rowing boat, punt or canoe. Well stocked boatyard to suit most of your needs for an enjoyable trip up the river Avon, as far as the weir at Bathampton. Care must be taken due to several large pleasure craft also using the river.
