We have stayed at 't Vliethuys three times and have always enjoyed a warm welcome. The bedroom and bathroom are comfortable and manually-operated heaters keep them nice and warm, even in November! The house is on a quiet street on the outskirts of Zwijndrecht but it's only a short walk to the town which has a well-stocked supermarket (great for stocking up on Belgian beer etc.!), cafes and restaurants. The nearest tram stop is only 10 minutes walk away and trams run frequently, especially in the mornings. The longest you may have to wait is about 13 minutes but there are also regular buses. By tram you'll be in the historic centre of Antwerp within 10 minutes.
As we like to make early starts we've never had time for breakfast but we were promised a hearty buffet should we like it. There are facilities for making tea and coffee outside the room. Last time we stayed our hosts had to leave unexpectedly before we arrived but arrangements were made for the housekeeper to let us in and our trip was not at all disrupted; this thoughtfulness was much appreciated.
We would highly recommend 't Vliethuys; it's a great base for exploring Antwerp and Belgium and we would happily stay again!
