If you want to make your stay in Brugge truly special then try this hotel. Everything about it speaks of history, relaxing in style and luxury. The rooms are of generous size and the furniture throughout the hotel is antique and reflects attention to detail. Ask for a room with view of the canal, it is so scenic. You will... More

I booked this hotel before i read the reviews! Once i'd read the reviews i was very worried so i emailed the hotel making them aware my concerns of the the reviews! I was assured by the hotel that all rooms were up to 4* and we wouldn't be disappointed. On arrival the reception area was amazing.Our room was ok... More

stayed here for a couple of days break after Xmas. The hotel is in a gorgeous spot on the banks of one of the rivers running through central Bruges a very short walk from the main square. Rooms were a little tired. An absolutely outstanding welcome from the front desk team . Internal staircase quirky to say the least but... More

Our stay was in the run up to Christmas. We were greeted by a friendly and informative reception staff. He gave us a brief review of Bruges main sites and marked them on an A4 map of the central area. The hotel is sited in a Unesco world heritage area so is right next to some of the main sites....

Unfortunately, we spent only one night at this lovely old hotel. The canal setting is beautiful and close to the historic part of the city. We were traveling with another couple and we both felt like our rooms were fine. However, if you are looking for a luxurious room, this hotel might not be your best choice. We love seeking... More

We stayed here for three nights over the New Year. The hotel location is fabulous, right in the centre of historic Bruges. It is literally a minute or two on foot from the Markt, and fronts onto a canal just by the Fish Market. The Swanne is a very old building with sumptuous, if slightly faded, decoration and furnishings. The... More

We have been travelling Europe For 5 weeks and have been in a lot of low budget accommodation. Due to the theft of expensive electronic gear and our wallets we decided to treat ourselves in Brugges. Die Swaene did not disappoint. Our room was large and we paid a little extra for a canal room. €€ well spent. Breathtaking. Breakfast... More

We selected this hotel for its gorgeous rooms pictured in various sites, ready to stretch ourselves a bit for some Christmassy treat. I thought at 185 GBP, we should have something more than decent. The lobby was raising my hopes. Nice and warm welcome and nice deco. On our way to our room, I noticed the thick carpet in the... More

This old hotel is nice but with a couple of odd quirks. On arrival the manager immediately had to go and park someone's car, telling us we would have to wait ten minutes until he got back. Was not the best reception, and it seems a shame not to have a second member of staff on in the evening to... More
