Guestbook



We had a great 5 days on Vita at the end of October. Alex was super helpful, very relaxed about people using her boat and was more than happy to spend as much time as we would have needed to get comfortable with driving the boat and managing the locks.
The boat was easy to handle and drive. Absolutely spotless and well equipped. The heating was great on the one occasion we had to use it.
We had a great time, very relaxing, and hopefully will be able to come back again in the future. Thanks Alex!

Having had to cancel our trip in May due to Covid restrictions, we were lucky enough to rebook Vita from 24th September to the 30th. It was well worth the wait! We have travelled up and down the Wey many times on boats, but Vita is by far the best we have used. The layout is ideal for two couples, with a double cabin at each end with their own bathrooms. the inside cabin area and kitchen are very well equipped, with everything you would need for a comfortable trip. The central heating was lovely first thing in the mornings. We had a very relaxing week, pootling up and down, enjoying the scenery and looking out for wildlife. each night we moored up out side one or other of the welcoming pubs for a few drinks and a good meal.
Thanks Alex for a great holiday, we would certainly hire Vita again in the future, should we return to the Wey.

Nigel Pitt, 

Enjoyed an amazing week on Vita exploring the beauty of the River Wey with family and dog! Vita is a lovely boat- great layout, well equipped, very clean and handled well. Alex was a very informative and friendly support before and on return. We spotted kingfishers and an otter, many ducks and ducklings, swans and cygnets and walked along and swam in the river. Amazed at the peace and tranquility. Hope to be back soon! Rowena, Piers, Holly, Jess and Mack

Rowena Rossiter, 

Alex's introduction to the boat was very informative. Vita was well maintained, equipped and clean. We had a very enjoyable week visiting the pubs along the river. Thank you Alex and hope to see you again soon.

We had an amazing few days away on Vita on the river Wey. It was very relaxing and the views and scenery were stunning.
The boat was spacious very clean and very well equipped and had everything on hand .
I was a bit worried about all the locks but Alex was brilliant and showed us exactly what to do and by the end I was a dab hand at it all.
Thanks so much Alex for a wonderful holiday . We will definitely do it again and I would recommend it to anyone

Celia Bryant , 

A lovely short break on board Vita. Everything that you would want is here; a brilliant host who makes the most challenging things very simple, a boat that is supremely comfortable and well equipped and the complete relaxation of pottering on the River Wey.

I thoroughly recommend Alex and Whatknot Boating!

Rob Morgan, 

We just got back from a three-day extended weekend break on Vita and had a wonderful time.

Alex gave us an introduction to the boat and then helped us go downriver and through Papercourt Lock a couple of times until we were comfortable with steering and handling the lock both upstream and downstream. She was incredibly patient and helpful. If you are new to boating you could not hope for a better guide.

After she left us we headed upstream mooring just outside Guildford that night and went to Godalming Wharf the following day where we turned around and came back over the next day and a half.

Vita has everything you could need in terms of space, comfort and facilities. When moored up in the countryside it is difficult to imagine a more tranquil place to be. We mainly cooked and ate on the boat by choice but we did a stop for a lovely pub lunch as well, mooring up right outside the pub.

We look forward to coming back again and would absolutely recommend Alex (thank you so much again) and Vita .

Cynthia & Steve, 

We had an amazing week on Vita. She is a great boat lovely to handle and a really good layout of accommodation. We managed to do the entire navigation and some of the Thames without feeling as though we were under great pressure. We were so lucky to have the best weather of the year so far! If you are doing this for the first time it is a nice gentle introduction and i can’t recommend it enough ! Thanks Alex !

Janet , 

We had amazing three days on board of Vita. All four of us were complete novices, but by the time we went through the first lock (with the guidance of Alex, the owner) our two skippers became well trained and confident in steering.
River Wey is beautiful and tranquil and steering Vita is good fun. The boat is very well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Two en-suite bedrooms made our stay very comfortable.
Thank you Alex for being so friendly and helpful. We’ll definitely be back.

Oxana Olarou, 

Just returned from 3 days on board Vita.
Alex (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with and answered all the questions I had promptly.
Vita is perfectly equipped with everything you will need for your time onboard.
Spending a few days on the River Wey was super relaxing and very enjoyable.
I highly recommend booking this boat through WhatKnot Boating as I cannot fault my experience from start to finish.
Thank you Alex, we will definitely be back :-)
