“Fantastic experience!”
Reviewed 14 October 2008

This exceeded all expectations - a wonderful idea brought to fruitation in a wonderful way.
The lift system is amazing, though possibly worrying for the claustrophobic. The room itself is very well-equipped, with touchscreen climate and lighting control - a choice of five different lighting combinations for the double shower alone! The bed is large and comfortable and the HD screen and surround sound excellent. Operating the crane is addictive and although the sun deck was more of a bluster deck while we were there, there's plenty of space for two people. The views are wonderful and the morning mist is lovely. A delicious breakfast arrives in a basket in the lift, with still-hot eggs.
One night is not long enough!

  • Liked — It's a CRANE!

Firstly hats off to the person who with his team had the vision and dedication to carry out this project and to such a high standard. My wife and I stayed for two nights end of July 2008 and thought it wonderful. Sitting on the top deck drinking Champagne watching the busy comings and goings of the boats was bliss, plus if you tire of that view hop in the drivers seat and give your crane a spin. We found the hi tech living area very comfortable, a great shower and an excellent breakfast .
Harlingen is a very nice little town with lots of boats,a good choice of cafes and restaurants and some nice historic buildings. We had an enjoyable evening at the Gastronoom not cheap but reasonable value and they give lots of freebie tasters. People seem to go early we booked for 8.00 and were virtually last to arrive perhaps because of this service was a little slow but very friendly and we enojyed our meal.
Thank you HavenKraan Van Harlingen for a memorable stay

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Special stay in a Harbourcrane It's easy to find the Harlingen Harbour Crane. All you have to do is look for the Crane's high legs standing almost in the Wadden Sea yet only a stone's throw from the centre of historic Harlingen. Staying the night in a Harbour Crane? We'll bet you've never dreamt of that! A unique experience We have applied to the Harlingen Harbour Crane all the knowledge and experience gained from working on the Lighthouse and the Lifeboat. It is here that the unassailable elevation of a lighthouse merges with the freedom of living on the water. And to top it all off, you get to do something unbelievable: you can have the crane swing into action! ... more   less
