Universal Marina feels quiet, friendly and intimate, but hidden away amongst this tree-enclosed bolt-hole are a surprising number of services.
Water and electricity
Both water and electricity are available on the pontoons at Universal. Water is free of charge. Electricity is charged on a per unit basis, with visitors receiving a standard complimentary electricity credit for each period of stay with the ability to top up if required.
Quality showers and toilets
Universal Marina has a berth holder lounge with dedicated shower and toilet facilities. There is also a separate berth holder facility with personal shower rooms and additional public toilets next to Mermaid’s coffee shop.
The laundry room at Universal Marina is located within the berth holder lounge. Inside you’ll find token-operated washing and drying machines for use by annual berth holders. Tokens are available from reception.
Restaurant and coffee shop
Universal is home to an excellent coffee shop and restaurant. Mermaids Coffee Shop is open daily for drinks, cakes and light lunches. It’s a lovely place to cosy up in front of the wood-burner or sit outside on warmer days. Meanwhile, Banana Wharf offers restaurant dining in its stunning riverside location.
