September's TLC events: what charterers had to say
The trend of a very busy summer on the River Thames continued as we entered the month of September.
TLC hosted dozens of varied events across the fleet, including private parties, weddings, corporate events and more.
We’ve compiled a selection of reviews from the month below, which have been collected from our official Reviews.co.uk page and direct feedback from charterers:
Kelly A – 5 stars – Corporate event
The Erasmus was a lovely boat that added a little luxury to our event. The event ran smoothly and was a great evening that was enjoyed by all. Especially grateful for going back to the pier to collect a couple of latecomers!
Jenny D – 5 stars – Corporate event
Fantastic staff, a great space. Delicious food! Genuinely seem like a happy team, which makes a real difference to how the event came together.
Bob L – 5 stars – Product launch
Five stars. Particularly, as a mariner, I appreciated the condition of the Edwardian and even more the appearance, professionalism and expertise of the captain and crew.
Linda A – 5 stars – Staff event
As always, a very pleasant evening that was enjoyed by everyone. The guests commented on how good the food was this year. The staff, as always, are a credit to the company and help to make the evening memorable which encourages us to want to do it again.
Tim H – 5 stars – Celebration event
The party was a huge success and we have had marvellous feedback from nearly all our guests. The dining area looked magnificent and the food went down very well. The staff on board were absolutely first class and ensured everything went very smoothly.
We were very lucky with the weather and the state of the tide and the combination of the drinks on deck and the lunch below could not have worked better. Thank you for all you did to make this a memorable occasion.
Rebecca P – 5 stars – Birthday party
We had a fantastic party on the boat. Our host was very helpful and made sure everyone had drinks etc as needed. Beforehand, Kirsten was very helpful as I had misread some of the capacity instructions – and so she helpfully explained what we would/wouldn’t be able to do with the numbers we had.
I spoke to the crew on the evening to say how delighted I was with the look of the boat, but also to feedback that the photos on the website completely do not do justice to the boat and how it looks when set up for a party like we had. Ahead of time I was concerned about how it would look, but can only say it looked fantastic on the night.
Tom S – 5 stars – Corporate event
Our clients had a great time – thank you. Particular thanks to Kirsten who made sure in the final week before the event we were well organised. All in all, it was great – we will be back next year. Thank you.
Caren B – 5 stars – Charity event
I don’t think we could have asked for any more, either prior to or during the evening. Having organised many charity events, I can say without hesitation that the staff and crew on the boat were exceptional in their professionalism and willingness to help in any way. The food and wine were also noticeably good and generated very good feedback from our guests, all of which contributed to an excellent experience.
We would thoroughly recommend chartering the Elizabethan; a great crew and excellent food and service.
Anon – 5 stars – Wedding
It was a beautiful evening. The staff were very friendly: fantastically helpful and flexible on the day of the event. Many of our wedding guests say that their favourite and most memorable moments came aboard the boat
