When we arrived at the Houseboat Nico was waiting for us. He gave us a very comprehensive explanation as to how everything worked which proved invaluable. After this everything was easy. It is a lovely boat and has all of the comforts of home whilst being unique. It is very quiet without the noise of traffic which means that a good nights sleep is easy. The people are very sociable which is not always the case in London. The houseboat community is just that, which is great. Although the boat is moved regulary it will always be moored in a lovely location close to all of the amenities of East London which gives really good access to all of the attractions that London has to offer. If you don't want the bother of going far then Victoria Park and London Fields are within walking distance.
Lorien is thoughtfully appointed and in a great location at the time of our visit. Nico was attentive and helpful during our stay. There is a great canal boat community to which the guest feels that they belong during the stay. We've been so inspired by our stay that we intend to go on a canal boat trip during our next visit to Britain! Thanks, Nico and Peter!
We had a great time on the Lorien. The boat was well maintained and very comfortable, with pretty much everything you would need for an enjoyable stay. Although we didn't have much reason to communicate, Nico was very helpful and responsive when we did. Would recommend to anyone looking for a unique experience in London.
Beautifully fitted out houseboat in a great part of London. It is of course a canal boat so it's not the largest place you'll ever stay but it's so well fitted out you likely won't notice! The boat has all the facilities you might need including a large shower as well as plenty of pots, pans, kitchen gear etc. Make sure to bring a sense of adventure (you're on a boat after all!) and enjoy the experience!
the stay on Lorien was perfect! Nico was really communicative and helpful, and the boat was beautiful. everything went smoothly, and i slept so well in the bed which is really comfy. staying on the canal with all the wildlife and space to sit outside was ideal. would definitely stay again.
L'accueil a été très agréable, tout était très clean, Nico nous a bien expliqué le fonctionnement des différents systèmes du bateau.
Le canal & le parc sont très animés le week-end et dans la journée mais tellement calmes la nuit et le matin! Vraiment reposant!
Il faut garder en tête qu'une péniche ne fonctionne pas comme un appart normal et penser aux aspects électricité/sanitaires et être prêt à faire un séjour différent!
very nice experience aboard. pictures are like reality. small bed but comfo and hig mattress quality. hosts are kind of very proactive. a bit tricky to my wife to care about amount of electricity used, recharge managing the engine etc. but thats part of the charm of living on water. very near to overground, shops and pleasant canals life with gentle cafes etc. tricky to get online but nico helped us with a usb key and that went very well. we had several computers and iphones and that was tricky. as the usb key of course doesnt stick into an iphone... but it was ok.
Thank you for feedback Alexandre :-)
Peter and Nico were terrific hosts - communication was always prompt and clear and our check in/out was seamless. Very clean boat and linens. The boat experience was fun! Wonderful neighborhood to explore - close to Broadway Market (delicious pizza place), a local cafe at the canal right on Mare street for morning breakfast and coffee, and short walk to both over and undergrounds. Great place to stay if you want a more authentic London experience away from the touristy areas downtown and if you want the experience of water living!
Wir wurden von Nico herzlich empfangen, und als wir die LORIEN zum ersten Mal sahen und betraten war es eine Liebe auf den ersten Blick. Das Boot strahlt Stil und Wärme aus und unter Deck fasziniert die Mischung aus wunderschönem Design und Funktionalität. Alles was man zum Leben an Bord braucht ist vorhanden. Es gibt keine überflüssigen Dinge, die nur Platz wegnehmen. Vorab erhielten wir eine Anleitung, die die wichtigsten Dinge an Bord erklärte. Diese liegt auch in gedruckter Form vor Ort vor. Die Technik überzeugt auf ganzer Linie. Das gilt für die Pantry ebenso wie für die Sanitäreinrichtung. Besonderes Lob verdient die Maschine und der Inverter, der zuverlässig 220 Volt AC lieferte. Hier lässt es sich an Bord leben!
Der Liegeplatz auf dem Regent’s Canal direkt am Victoria Park ist fantastisch. Vorab konnten wir uns den Platz mit aussuchen und auch ein Standortwechsel ist möglich. Die Atmospäre am Kanal ist einmalig. Da wir im Sommer selbst auf unserem Boot auf den Brandenburger Gewässern leben, haben wir eine enge Beziehung zu den Wasserstraßen, Seen und Küsten. So war es für uns keine grosse Überraschung, dass wir uns alsbald in den Regent’s Canal verliebten. Gegen Ende der Reise wurde uns dann endgültig klar: Es gibt so viele Gründe die LORIEN und den Regent’s Canal zu lieben.
Ohhh we love this, many thanks! Take care. Nico and Peter
Great stay in our favourite part of London! Nico and Peter were very friendly and easy to communicate with.
The boat itself is very clean, and the pictures describes it well. Would recommend it any time!
Great guests, welcome back anytime!
Some guests have this great positive attitude which makes you feel like on a holiday in your own place. Peter and Luca have this quality. They are very enthusiastic about the things around them, and are always looking at the bright side. Both made me feel proud of my place, and were articulate about everything they liked. They were also very clever at giving me hints on how to make the guest experience even better. I love this constructive feedback. I hope I will have the pleasure to see them returning soon!
Peter was a fantastic guest! Glad to have met him!
Peter and Luca stayed with us for a few days in August 2012. They were fantastic guests. They are charming, friendly, worldly and open-minded and we enjoyed chatting to them very much. More importantly, they took very good care of our house. They were neat and tidy, very respectful of the house rules and communicated to us clearly before their arrival and during their stay. We would have liked for them to stay longer in order to get to know them better!
i can only highly recommend Peter and Lucas place to stay when in London. they are both such great hosts and so kind and helpful. HONESTLY and the house is gorgeous gorgeous. and so relaxing there. i always feel peaceful there after the stress of the vibrant city.
They are both great people, very welcoming and they have a wonderful house. The guest floor (yes you have your own floor) is so beautiful and comfortable, you will feel sad to leave! It is also such a nice and calm area of Londen. Peter and Luca, the sweetest hosts in Londen!
When it comes to hosting, this is has good as it gets. Peter and Lucas are both sweet, open minded and extremely welcoming. Lucas being a flight attendant, he will welcome you as if you were flying first class. Peter is very creative and has great taste, hence the beautifully decorated house.... don't be fooled by his big muscles, he is more like a teddy bear.
