The Four Sisters Boatel - hand built luxury

Luxury 4* accommodation in Edinburgh City Centre.

A first for Scotland, The Four Sisters Boatel is a luxury, four star, self catering, canal houseboat, accommodation located in the very heart of Edinburgh city centre and has been awarded 4 stars by the Scottish Tourist Board.   


She is a purpose built, permanently moored, static wide-beam houseboat, so don’t worry if you haven’t got your sea legs, there are no currents or tides and sea/canal sickness is not an issue.

A massive 55' by 10' 6" with 6' 4" of headroom, she can sleep up to 4 adults and 2 children under 10 years comfortably. 

A double bed-settee is also available in the lounge area to accommodate larger groups.

The Four Sisters Boatel is within walking distance of many of the delights Edinburgh has to offer. Whether you’re a culture vulture, shopaholic or a disco diva, The Four Sisters is the ideal location to meet all of your holiday needs and offers a unique experience for the discerning traveller that even the kids will enjoy. 




"This was an ideal location in Central Edinburgh in a quiet area. The boat was equipped with everything you need including powerful shower and well stocked kitchen. It wouldnt be for anyone with mobility issues due to the steep steps into the boat but beds were comfortable and heating was very effective. It was a nice touch to have fresh flowers in the living area. We would deffinately reccomend as an alternative to the usual city centre hotels and would also reccomend Loudens coffee shop for breakfast." - Trip Advisor 2015



 "Lovely place very clean an comfortable and surprisingly spacious. Everything on the boat you could ever need... owner very friendly and helpful" - Freetobook 2016
