"Slap bang in the heart of the city centre, yet totally secluded from the noise of traffic and late night revellers, this gorgeous little narrow boat is a wonderful place to stay and offers a unique insight into life on Birmingham's canals.
If you've ever dreamed of living on a boat but couldn't quite pick up the courage, a few nights aboard 'Katie' will fuel your fantasies once more. She is a compact wonder with three small but cosy rooms decked out with comfy beds, warm floral curtains and striped wallpapers. The boat just oozes character and it's easy to slip into romantic daydreams of a nomadic lifestyle on the waterways as you sit on the deck or gaze out the windows. It's difficult though to believe you're in the city centre; the canal basin is protected from the outside noise and makes a wonderfully quiet retreat from the city - yet is stumbling distance from Birmingham's best night life. You may not get an in-room TV or ensuite bathroom but there's more life and soul in this place than most of Birmingham's hotels put together."
