We can definitely recommend Aan de Oever Guesthouse. It is a lovely guesthouse with very spacious rooms, friendly and helpful staff and a wonderful breakfast situated on a beautiful plot in a very special town. We travelled with our toddler and found everyone to be very welcoming and accommodating in that regards as well. We will definitely stay there again and recommend to all.

We enjoyed our stay in Aan de Oever -although it was only one night in transit. We had stayed before in November 2011. We received a very nice welcome - juice on arrival and given a very comfortable room.The breakfast was extensive based on local produce whilst our car was washed by the gardener/handy man who kept the grounds looking immaculate.We were given some muffins for our onward journey and made to feel very welcome by the pleasant and efficient new manageress. Very recommended! Note we enjoyed a lovely home cooked evening meal with a set menu from the local restaurant only 10 mins walk...
