In partnership with MADE.COM, the boathouse london steers the city’s hotel scene in a new direction with a bespoke hotel and event space on the water

This summer, step aboard the most distinctive addition to London’s boutique hotel scene. The Boathouse London – an industrial style barge turned contemporary bolthole – offers a memorable alternative to conventional accommodation.

Launched in partnership with home design brand MADE.COM, The Boathouse London provides ultra-chic accommodation on the scenic waters of West London. Lovingly crafted by Britain’s premier boat builders, the 60-foot widebeam barge offers a contemporary, fashionable alternative to the traditional design of a canal boat, while boasting all the amenities of a luxury hotel. Furnished in a state-of-the-art Scandinavian style, the sleek interior features reclaimed wood panelling, a versatile open-plan layout, and Egyptian cotton bed linens. A generous deck provides a relaxed space in which to enjoy outdoor dining.


Explore the surrounding area on the MADE.COM bikes provided by The Boathouse London, or stick to the water in its rowing boat. Guests can choose from a number of tailor-made experiences, from hiring your own boat driver to navigate the canals to enlisting the talents of a chef for an unforgettable dinner aboard.

In addition to its services as a boutique hotel on the water, The Boathouse London will play host to a wide range of events that include private film screenings, yoga brunches, and supper clubs. Permanently moored in London’s first floating park near Little Venice, it promises to add flair to an already fashionable neighbourhood.
