This was the best B&B we ever stayed. What a Belgium hospitality, clean rooms and attention to detail. The location at the river was excellent! All the rooms were so well decorated. Excellent beds! Thank you Wim and Mieke

Back to Earth with a bang! We recently enjoyed one of the best days/nights of our lives at Palmetto Riverside B&B for our wedding (15/04/15). Wim and Mieke are professional & elegant hosts and now friends also and we hugely appreciate the detailing and execution that they demonstrated for our special day. It is accurate to mention that the level... More

Wim and Mieke are generous and sensitive hosts, we were staying for a wedding which was beautiful, the food was amazing, and the hotel itself was gorgeous, we can't wait to go back! Their service can best be described as discreet but attentive, and it felt like we were staying with friends rather than in a hotel!

They are such a warm and inviting family. They make you feel so comfortable and at home. From the sweet note... More

Directly across from the Marina with piers for watching the boats and the sunset to fantastic restaurants less than a block away the setting could not be better. Wim welcomed us warmly as we...
