Hotelboat Crew

  • Job Location

    Waterways of Southern England

  • Start date

    Early May

  • Duration

    For our summer season until early or mid October

  • Job Benefits

    £250 per week plus accommodation, food, laundry and a range uniform tops.


Do you have a sense of adventure? Would you like the opportunity to experience a unique way of life whilst working in the hospitality industry?

Tranquil Rose is a hotel with a difference; a floating hotelboat cruising the Inland Waterways. We carry up to eight guests as we travel the Canals and Rivers of Southern England through beautiful and often unknown countryside.

We are looking for a hard working, fun loving crew member to join us for our 2017 season, from mid-May until early October, and you will be rewarded by experiences that will be with you for a very long time.

Your duties will mainly involve crew work, although a willingness to help out with some kitchen work would be an advantage. Knowledge of boating is not needed as we will give you all the training required to become proficient at locking, rope work and general boat handling, and even steering our 70’ hotel boat.

If you would like a 9 to 5 mundane job, then this is not the position for you. You must have the ability to work long hours in a small team, be able to multitask, be physically fit and enjoy outdoor life, and perhaps most of all have a great sense of humour as this is a job to be enjoyed. You would also need to enjoy the company of two Patterdale Terrier “crew dogs”! This is hard but very rewarding work; after all, how many jobs give you the opportunity of waking up with a different view outside your bedroom (cabin) window each morning? 

This is a “live on board” position in shared crew accommodation and all your food, accommodation, laundry and uniform will be provided.

To sum up; if you like the outdoor life, work well in a team, have some cooking skills, are willing to turn your hand to cleaning, boat handling, working locks, and are outgoing and sociable, this could be the job for you.

Search for Tranquil Rose and check out what we have to offer, and then apply now, telling us why we may be interested in you. We plan to hold interviews within the next few weeks or so in London.


No formal qualifications are required as we will give you all the
training you need to carry our your crewing duties, all you need is
a spirit of adventure and a willingness to learn and enjoy
