Friendly hotel for people with disabilities

The hotel and our daily boat are fully adapted for disabled guests and divers. The hotel has an elevator and we have rooms that are equipped for the disabled. The rooms are extra spacious and the bathroom and toilet are barrier free and equipped with wide doors. The bathrooms are designed to allow the use of a wheelchair. Beside the steps and stairs on the ground floor are wooden ramps, so that there is no obstacle.

Our boat Dory is very suitable

Our daily boat “Dory” is 28 meters long, 4.5 meters wide and approved to carry up to 35 divers and their equipment. We have an extra wide ramp so wheelchairs can easily be driven on board. On board is an extra wide toilet, easily accessible for wheelchair users. We have a motorized lift, so that a diver with all their equipment can be safely and quickly hoisted from the water (within 1 minute!) For transportation from the hotel to the boat our pick-up can be used. Bert Biemans is also an instructor IAHD and thus qualified in dealing with disabled divers.
