Due to Covid-19, the Kyle Blue Luxury Tourist Hostel is now operating as a self-contained holiday rental property.


We are currently only accepting bookings for single households from 12th April 2021 and bookings for up to 2 households or groups of six from May 17th 2021 onwards in light of current Government restrictions.

Please call 07521 650 582 or email kylebluebristol@gmail.com for direct bookings and enquiries.


Bookings can also be made via Airbnb and Beds on Board.

Please note the Kyle Blue is moored in a very tranquil location and has close residential neighbours, therefore guests are required to keep noise to an absolute minimum after 11pm.

Covid-19 changes to Kyle Blue

Prior to Covid-19, the Kyle Blue functioned as a Luxury Tourist Hostel, offering private cabins and shared dormitory accommodation, to individual travellers, small groups of friends and families. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions on the opening of hostels with shared living and catering facilities, we are unable to open as a tourist hostel, and are therefore only open for whole boat rental from 12th April 2021 for single households and for up to 2 households or groups of six from 17th May 2021.

Guests wishing to book for larger groups or multiple households will be able to once the Government has confirmed when these will be allowed. 

The Kyle Blue achieved great reviews for its location, amenities and cleanliness and we hope that people will be able to enjoy the serenity and tranquility that the Kyle Blue offers once again.

We hope you choose to spend that special time with friends and family onboard the Kyle Blue.

Best wishes from the hosts, Martin & Amy.

The Kyle Blue is the only floating houseboat in Bristol Harbour

available for holiday rental.


The boat is on a fixed mooring on Wapping Wharf, a stone's throw from the new trendy Cargo Quarter and in between the award winning attractions of the SS Great Britain and the MShed Museum.
