Lifeboat Hotel, Netherlands

Fancy a cruise, but don’t really want be set adrift the ocean?  Well, Harlingen’s Lifeboat Hotel could be just what you’re looking for!

Situated in the northern Netherlands, Harlingen is a town built on fishing and shipping.  What then, could be more appropriate than a quirky hotel sitting gracefully in the town’s beautiful harbour?

Having saved lives off the English coast for almost 25 years, the Lifeboat was lovingly restored by the same Harlingen team that resurrected the town’s crane and lighthouse.  Now, it offers sumptuous accommodation to the standards you would expect from a contemporary hotel.

So, wake to the smell of your freshly baked breakfast, which can be enjoyed al-fresco on deck, or down below in the privacy of the aft cabin.

When you need to get away from it all, the Lifeboat Hotel really could prove to be an absolute life-saver!
