Paul the owner met us at the gated marina made us feel welcome .He gave us a quick tour and left us to explore.So many boats to look at with the sunshine felt like we was abroad.Much more fun than one room in a hotel .With all the resturants and twinkling sea the evenings were blissful.The mornings was a delight the showers imaculate
Loved every minute of my stay despite thunder storm on the last day. Fell in love with Woodpecker II and the marina with all its top class facilities. Everyone was so helpful and friendly and Paul is a fantastic host. I am hoping to visit again next year fingers crossed a holiday that will stay in my heart forever. Anyone who is a bit adventurist or likes something out of the norm go for it is my advise 👌😎
We'd like to thank Paul for sharing the Woodpecker II with our family of 5. We spent five nights in January aboard his sailboat. The marina is in an excellent location with many shops and restaurants nearby. The marina facilities were clean and always accessible. The description is accurate, a renter should be comfortable with boating or perhaps RVing, because the living space is small (especially for our group of 5) - but we knew that going in. Everything we needed, umbrellas, tea, towels, sheets, heaters etc was available to us. I was able to contact Paul when one of the heaters wasn't working, and he immediately made sure we had a working one. You will not find a more affordable, novel lodging in such a great area of central London.
This is certainly a unique and memorable way to visit London. As long as you fully appreciate what you're in for, I highly recommend Woodpecker II.
The boat is very cozy (tight quarters) and using the public facilities (while they are clean), feels a bit like camping. If you are allergic to smoke or down feathers, I recommend you bring your own linens.
Ultimately, you can't beat the location or the price or the one-of-a-kind experience. St. Katharine's dock is a premier location with lots to see/do/eat and Paul is a great host. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks!
Great and unique stay at St. Katherine's Dock, right at the Tower Bridge. Nice clean washroom facilities. Stayed for three nights and were very comfortable....not a five star hotel, but a great experience nonetheless. Lots of pubs and restaurants close by and discount card was a great moneysaver. Paul is a genial host and made sure we were comfortably settled before leaving us to enjoy the woodpecker II. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something a little different in a fantastic location!
Family of 5 with 3 children. Very much enjoyed our experience. We did have fun and adventure all in a wonderful setting! In my opinion .. to fully enjoy the experience you must have had previous experience on sailing or staying in a small space. Would definitely come back and stay on the Woodpecker again! Thanks Paul for your nice welcome and advises. Regards sabrina
