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.

This hotel is just perfect place to stay in a picturesque Brugge. Don't forget to take your camera with you, both hotel and city is worth of carrying the camera. The hotel is small and the athmosphare and decor is nice and positively different. The breakfast room is unique and the service is great. Don't forget to try the sauna... More

The Good : lovely location, excellent & friendly staff, very good breakfast. The Bad : our room was somewhat "tired" and although an upgrade to "Superior", not up to the standard on the website. The Very Unfortunate : our one night stay was ruined by extraordinarily noisy people in the room next door. When we went to bed just around... More

Stayed here with my sister for a 2 night break and I can only describe this hotel as quirky. In the reception, there are various showcases with odd exhibits which may or may not be related to the hotel. We were checked in and shown to our room via the beautiful lounge where we were advised we could sit and... More

I booked at the hotel and confirmed an air-conditioned room and the Size of 60 SQM. We received the 2 rooms and when asking about the A/C he said it is not working since 2 days and the room size was not 60SQM at all. It is my first time staying at small luxury hotel brands www.slh.com and the last... More
