Great experience staying in a boat and the Ger and his wife are excellent hosts and their lovely breakfast after a long night is recommended! The boat itself has a great history being about 76 years old! (If I remember correctly).

We stayed in Vita Nova for a week, using the captain's "house" at the front, with two bedrooms and own facilities. Although the location was lovely and it was great to stay on the water, the accommodation itself had some minor points. There was no room for luggage at all.

I spent the final night of a two week trip to Europe (from the US) in Amersfoort as it was affordable, not too far from the airport (I had a rental car) and was thrilled when I found Hotel Vita Nova, as having the experience of sleeping on a ship in a canal is not something I come across every...

Only problem was very short bed for tall men. The staff was very friendly and helpful and breakfast was great
