What A Little Gem Harpy, is beautiful and fantastically maintained, by Andrew and his crew. Location is fantastic, right on the South Bank, perfect for sightseeing, bars and restaurants. You won’t be disappointed.

Favourite holiday home

We crewed the HMS Harpy as a family of five for my dad's 60th birthday. In short: AMAZING. My dad was so pleased, he said it's his favorite holiday home (or hotel, or anything else) that he's ever stayed in. I completely agree with him. Andrew is a consummate host, and the Harpy itself is magnificent — clean, spacious, and perfectly appointed. If you're thinking of staying here, and it's in your budget, just do it!

Another world

A magical place with breathtaking views. Andrew and Julie have created in The Harpy the most extraordinary environment which, though in the heart of the city, feels like another world. They are the most attentive hosts, clearly love the Harpy, and want to make sure that their guests enjoy what it has to offer as much as they do. An unforgettable experience, which we plan to repeat.

Unique experience

My daughter booked The Harpy for a family celebration of my son-in-law's 40th birthday. What a wonderful and unique experience 'The Harpy' is. At the end of each day it was so much more enjoyable to return to 'The Harpy' than to a hotel room. A superb location and ideal base for exploring London's attractions.

The perfect place

The Harpy is the perfect place for a family or small group to stay in London. It has unbeatable views, the bedrooms (cabins) and living spaces are wonderful, there is parking and it is close to the underground and restaurants. I cannot speak too highly of our experience.

Excellent & quirky, great views & stunning accommodation also very peaceful & quiet considering your moored up at Butlers Wharf, would definitely recommend The Harpy Houseboat.

OMG!!! We booked The Harpy to celebrate a 70th birthday and this place made it a truly special weekend. Everything is catered for at such a high standard. How can you stay in something so peaceful yet have one of the most bustling backdrops. Thank you Andrew. We’re definitely coming back with friends next time and can’t wait!!

A very very special place

The Harpy is permanently moored at China Wharf on the Thames. From the moment we came aboard we knew this was going to be a very special weekend on a very special boat. We were provided with a lovely welcome pack and left to celebrate my 70th birthday with my family. All our expectations were exceeded, we had champagne on the deck, and the views of Tower Bridge, especially at night, are absolutely stunning. The four double cabins are very comfortable, however, ours was just fantastic. Electric operated curtains open up to a direct view of the Thames and Tower Bridge. Saturday morning we were lucky enough to see Tower Bridge open to salute the Lord Mayor in the Queens Barge Gloriana arrive at the Naval establishment opposite us! The boat is so beautifully well equipped I cannot think of one thing that should be added to enhance a stay, it is comfortable, wonderful tv and hi fi system, the beds and linen top quality and obviously loved by its owners and now us. My son is planning a stay next year and all my friends are rushing to their computers to see if they too can enjoy, what for me was just the perfect weekend. Thank you so much Andrew, if I could give this review 6 stars I most certainly would. Sue

The Harpy was perfect for our needs!! An amazing boat with spectacular views. It is impeccably decorated and appointed. We stayed at the Harpy for business in central London. Could not have asked for more. Convenient to everywhere. We will be back!!!

The Harpy Makes You Happy

We had a total of 10 guests, 6 adults and 4 children across three generations and The Harpy added to the charm of our London visit. One of our favorite London moments was happy hour as the sun sets over looking the Tower Bridge on the upper deck of The Harpy. Every detail was thought of from host and owner and their willingness to make the visit special was evident. I would recommend this place to any one considering it!
