Nice views, helpful staff, good food.
We spent three nights on the houseboats, which were okay but nothing amazing about them. Being able to share the experience with other couples was nice and we met some fabulous people. The upper deck on one of the boats was comfortable and a good place to relax. The cruise itself is calm and relaxing, slowly travelling a set pattern until we reach our overnight stay at Cosy Lakeside Villas. They also allow you to have a shower whilst at the Villas in a better equipped bathroom. The food served is good, with the crew on hand to get you anything you need. The crew will also purchase beer if you'd like some alcohol with dinner. The room on the boat was spacious and comfortable.
The boats are in need of a little maintenance, the bathrooms are serviceable but not great. No hot water on the boat or at the Villa but the shower was much better at the Villa. The first larger boat was in better condition than the smaller two roomed boat. I did notice a couple of large cockroaches in the bathroom and bedroom of the smaller boat and a lizard, but it didn't affect the overall experience. Are there better boats out there?...Yes...Are they more expensive?....Yes. Cosy houseboats should only be used for single night trips, as we had to make sure we were packed each morning to remove our baggage. Then we either went back to the same boat in the afternoon or changed to another boat. Also, initial communication with the company was woeful, we ended up having to get our hostel receptionist to find the correct phone number to call them to confirm check in time and meeting location, as our numerous emails weren't replied to. Additionally, the phone number on booking.com was always switched off. And finally, there is no wifi on the boat until you reach your final docking in the evening and to top it off, it is extremely poor. Don't book if you were expecting wifi the whole time. But if you can live without it, than this may be the boats for you.
