Life Boat Hotel

Listed under Unusual Places to Stay in The Netherlands.

Pin It

Between 1955 and 1979 this British Watson class lifeboat rescued hundreds of sailors from dangerous situations and today it has been redesigned as a stylish hotel to rescue holiday goers from dangerously dull accommodation. Below deck, the Lillas Marras lifeboat has the luxury finish of a boutique hotel and as well as being delivered a fresh breakfast in the morning, for an extra fee you can also brave the seas on a 2 hour excursion skippered by the owners.
