  • Tartan Spoon

    May 2023

    The entire interior is decorated to a high standard with the colour theme of yellow and green running throughout the barge giving it a warmth and a feeling of easy flow from one room to the next. There are some homely touches such as cozy tartan blankets, bottled water, coffee table books on exploring Edinburgh and board games available to play. WiFi is available although 4g signal is strong too, and you can easily log onto Amazon and Netflix on the 43 inch plasma screen in the lounge or on one of the smaller TV’s available in two of the bedrooms. Everything is really easy to connect too, even Alexa listens to your commands! Camilla can sleep up to 8 people. Bedroom 1 - with 2 adult bunk beds Bedroom 2 - with a double bed Master bedroom - with a king size bed Lounge - double sleeper sofa We tried out the Master bed and the Double. Both were extremely comfortable with luxurious cotton bedsheets and a mixture of pillows from soft to hard. Sleep came easy and this boat makes for a relaxing stay. I thought that with it being a boat, you’d feel the motion of the water, but I honestly couldn’t tell the difference between being on the water or on land. Luckily, we had a most calm night with no wind and no rain so the water was extremely still. All the better for a great nights sleep. The shower room and WC is so unexpected for a barge and was a large space. The shower is 5ft high and has loads of room. Very modern with complimentary toiletries. The shower is decent and you’ll get a great wash in here! It has a fully kitted out and well equipped kitchen with gas hob, oven, microwave and fridge. There are 3 eating areas on the boat- the breakfast bar in the kitchen, and outdoor decking seating and BBQ area which can host up to 8 people. You can arrange for a food and drink hamper to be delivered so that you have something for breakfast. I love that Natalie has fostered relationships with local food and drink businesses to bring the best of Scottish food and drink to your doorstep. Local suppliers include Edinburgh Butter Co, Puddledub Dry Cured Bacon, Corrie Mains Scottish Eggs, Mossgiel Organic Milk and Company Bakery Sourdough. These are some of the BEST suppliers in and around Edinburgh. This boatel caters for your every whim, from luxurious soft furnishings to the little added extras like fishing rods and wireless headphones. Camilla Boatel is a delight. You honestly would never know that you were in the middle of city, but instead bobbing along some quiet meandering canal in the countryside.
