Qualité, Service, Discrétion et Gentillesse

4.8 on August 24, 2015

"Nous avons passé avec nos 2 enfants un magnifique séjour chez Jacqueline et Gerrit VAN VLIET qui sont disponibles, discrets et d'une incroyable gentillesse. Au-delà des prestations habituelles attendues dans une chambre d'hôte, ils ont un sens du service et de l'accueil qui nous a permis de nous sentir à l'aise immédiatement,de bénéficier des commodités d'une kitchnette et de profiter pleinement de leur région située entre le Rhin et la Meuse grâce à leurs conseils. La maison est également équipée d'un monte-escalier électrique. Nous avons découvert à vélo des espaces naturels superbes ainsi que des villes et villages typiques tout en étant à une heure et quart d'Amsterdam. Bref, nous recommandons vivement ce Bed and Breakfast pour des séjours seul ou en famille avec un budget maîtrisé."

Fantastic B&B - July 2014

5 on July 18, 2014

What a truly superb place to stay. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped, lovely quiet location with a wonderful garden to enjoy. Superb breakfasts with freshly baked rolls every day and what you don't eat for breakfast you can pack for lunch. Even the sandwich bags were provided for you. They put food out to attract birds and while you eat your breakfast you can watch birds feeding just the other side of the window. Very enjoyable. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful indeed even making sure we had the right tea available. And even helped me with translation services at a local garage when I had a bit of car trouble. Room 2 is spacious and light and well equipped with kettle, coffee maker, fridge, TV, desk and free wi-fi and a lovely balcony overlooking the garden. Certainly the comfort was on a par with many top hotels and better than a lot of others. If I am in that area in the future I would certainly look to stay here again. Chris & Vivienne.

fantastic hosts in a lovely home in a gorgeous village close to the sights of western Germany and an hour from Amsterdam

A weekend in JUNE!!!

4.8 on August 05, 2012

We arrived on a Friday by the little local bus... another local helped us get to Van Vliet's - warm welcomes into their peacefilled home. A very welcome cup of tea and chat with our host and hostess. Lots of help with where we could eat - mobile pizza - what a treat!! lovely area, peaceful, beautiful gardens and countryside. Easy walks to villages in the area. - or bike rides. Sunday we prepared to go with our hosts to their church. Unfortunately as we were about to enter the church we received the sad news from Australia that my husband's mother had just died. Our host, took us back to the house so we could make contact with family. Not only that -- during the afternoon, having not eaten they drove us to a nearby town where we enjoyed a very special meal and talked over our many memories. Then Geraldo, kindly returned and took us back to the house. The following morning he also took us to the train station. The joy of both Jaquie and Geraldo was wonderful and their special care at a difficult moment was truly treasured. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH

Fantastic B&B

5 on July 11, 2012

We had the most perfect 4 night stay at B&B Family Van Vliet in July. Jacqueline and Geraldo were wonderful hosts going above and beyond without being obtrusive. They were incredibly welcoming and friendly with great suggestions of places to visit and see in the local areas. The cycling was fantastic with lots of quiet country cycle paths in the beautiful countryside surrounding Hernen. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful - mostly home produced and organic - there were even fresh flowers from the garden in our rooms! I would fully recommend B&B Family Van Vliet.

Best B&B Ever!

This is a fantastic B7B. Located in a quiet residential area, the B&B is clean, comfortable and very very reasonable. The hosts are friendly and very helpful. There was an enormous variety of food offered at breakfast and the hostess encouraged you to pack a lunch to take with you! If you are anywhere near this location, consider staying here, you will not be sorry!! I know we will be booking here again in the very near future!
