The lady (owner of the houseboat) was very friendly and kind. There was no problem finding the boat and we could easily get there on foot (20 minutes) from the car park (P+R Bos en Lommer) where we left our car for the stay. So for location it is ideal, very close to the central.

The lady (owner of the houseboat) was very friendly and kind. There was no problem finding the boat and we could easily get there on foot (20 minutes) from the car park (P+R Bos en Lommer) where we left our car for the stay. So for location it is ideal, very close to the central. Before we arrived I emailed the lady, and she answered all my questions kindly. We had no problem with "check in", although it is not a hotel or hostel, so it was not like checking in one of those.. We paid and she show us the boat and gave us the key. My only problem was the bed in our room, which was a bit small for 2 person and the breakfast was not cooked. The lady was very nice throughout our stay, but I expected a bit more effort from her when it came to the breakfast (that was a bit disappointing). I can only recommend this place to young people or students or a group of friends, not for couples or somebody who likes to stay in hotels with more comfort.
