General hotel information


Breakfast is served all week from 08:00 to 10:30 in our breakfast restaurant. In good weather it is also possible to have breakfast in our courtyard.


As our guests check out almost simultaneously due to the departure times of the boat, it can be very busy at the reception between 10:00 and 11:00 in the morning. We kindly request you to take this into account. You can also pay your hotel bill the night before departure. We kindly ask you to vacate your room before 11:00 on the day of departure. If late check-out is required, ask for availability. Until 14:00 – € 20.00, until 17:00 – € 30.00.

For room service, please refer to the room service card in this folder. The costs for room service are € 5.50. Room service breakfast is also possible.
