I concur with much that others have written - a lovely location and charming staff. We were in the old building so cannot comment on the new rooms. Our room was in keeping with much of the rest of the building's old style and feel. I do not agree the rooms are "tired" as some have said - the one... More

I have given it four stars when I really wanted to give it 3.5. The location of the hotel is undeniably superb. It overlooks a canal and is 2 minutes walk to all the shops and restaurants you could wish for. Bruges itself is definitely worth a visit. The hotel itself offers free parking (on the Pergola side), has an... More

I agree with the majority of comments from the previous contributor....in fact I think we may have stayed in the same room. Apart from no Tea/Coffee making facilities there was no safe. The Concierge offered us a portable one as a temporary measure which we declined....one was eventually installed the following day. The bathroom was extremely small and the shower... More

Hotel is in a lovely location right on the canal near the center of town. Room was very quiet. Those are the positives. The room had a crazy lighting system- which even the young woman who was the manager on duty could not figure out. It was impossible to turn only the lights in the bathroom on without turning on...

I really don't know what's not to like about this place! It starts with a free car parking for your entire stay, right in the middle of town! Then the owners are really friendly, kind and helpful without becoming uncomfortable! Truly heartwarming! Then it is the rooms. We had a room at the Pergola restaurant across the street and it...

The staff couldn't do enough for us and it is in a wonderful location. We had room 47 overlooking the canal and it was well furnished and comfortable. Breakfast buffet is well worth 20 EUROS each. We also had dinner one night in the garden overlooking the canal and it is was excellent. I had the best sorbet I have... More

The photos looked lovely and we weren't disappointed on arrival. What a stunning hotel. I travelled with my two daughters to celebrate my eldest's 30th birthday. They had left some fabulous Belgian chocolates on the bed for my daughter on the bed. The room was beautiful and very comfy. We were right on the canal and were lucky enough to... More

Delightful few days at this hotel. Perfect location, within easy walk and away from noise and bustle. Attention to almost all detail, but no in-room coffee/tea (although available as room service), and iffy shower arrangement. Any such minor defects well outweighed by friendly/efficient staff and abundant breakfast. Canal-view room a huge plus. Would recommend.

We had a big, well appointed room on the canal. Staff was extremely chipper. Breakfast good. Our room included a two hour walking tour with an educated enthusiastic local guide. Restaurant closed mid week but plenty of places to eat in Bruges.
