Aurora: Cruise ship and Bed & Breakfast (Schiedam/ Rotterdam). Read here some of our customer experiences and reviews regarding their stay during one of our cruises including bed & breakfast services!
"Impossible to describe in words how wonderful, kind and friendly are the owners. Beautiful, beautiful people. The houseboat it's even better then the picture, rooms large, with delicious furnitures, bathroom like a spa, breakfast too much and too good, very very clean.

I can continue for long time talking all the best but let's talk about position. It's in a town outside rotterdam, and it's a perfect base camp for many one day trip: for example, you can go to visit Rotterdam, Delft, Den Haag, and the shore (i don't remember the name, Scielingen or somethin similar, a huge touristic zone with lots of atractions) in less then 30 minutes, Utrecht 45 minutes, Amsterdam in one hour by train a little more by car, in 2 hours you get to Bruges, Gand, Anverse and Bruxelles. One place fits all. Not to mention Tia (and if you want to know what i'm talking about let's go to Aurora) Forever in our hearts."
"We had an absolute exellent stay at The Aurora in Schiedam. Steve and Karina are the best hosts you can ask for. The athmosphere is cozy, humouristic and light. The boat is nice and clean with very good facilities all over. You sleep well cause the neighbourhood is very quiet.
Schiedam is nice and it only takes a half an hour with public transport to central Rotterdam. We do HIGHLY recommend The Aurora :-)"
“Wij hadden voor het bezoek aan het North Sea Jazz Festival voor één nacht geboekt. We werden hartelijk door Steve en Karina ontvangen.
Het viel ons op dat alles uitermate schoon was en tot in de puntjes verzorgd, zoals verse bloemen en een fles water op de kamer. De kamer én de badkamer waren geweldig. Toen we vroegen hoe we het beste naar naar Ahoy konden reizen bracht Steve ons met de auto naar de tram en wees ons naar de metro. Na het festival hebben we zeer goed geslapen in een heerlijk bed, een prima temperatuur (geen airco gebruikt).
De volgende morgen wachtte ons een heerlijk ontbijt met de andere gasten aan een gezellige ronde tafel. Steve en Karina toonden zich prima gastheer en -vrouw. Kortom: het was kort maar hevig!!"
“Warm welcome, Spacious, fresh and clean rooms, beautifull quiet location, free parking and excellent Breakfast."
“We were looking for something special to stay for our short city-trip. This special, which you’ll remember all time in your whole life.
The AURORA is an extraordinary boat, with a great charme, you’ll never forget. Steve, the owner, restored this boat with love to the details and gives a warm feeling during staying there. We were very thankful to Karina, the great soul of the boat, with a big heart und the desire that the guests will enjoy their stay there.
There you will get the feeling >> staying at friends << The wish to jump into the KingSize-bed was hard to resist! The bathroom is generously cut und you’ve enough place to relax. The amazing breakfast has no words to give, only amazing, and the perfect start in the day. We stayed with our dog and he has a lot of fun with Tia, the principessa of the boat."
“So clean and tidy, really nice and welcoming hosts will come again for sure."

La Belette
“Everything was fabulous, fabulous. This carefully and beautifully restored Dutch barge provides luxurious cabins with ensuites, lovely furnishings throughout the dining and living areas and a deck area with comfortable seating to sit and enjoy the view. But best of all is the hospitality of the crew. In my opinion this is a must do experience. Oh, I forgot to mention the delicious breakfast."
