My wife and I stayed here over 25 yrs ago, before we got married and always vowed to return. We have finally retuned on our silver wedding year and was so pleased to see the hotel was still in the same manner to which we had previously visited. Service is excellent, first class, rooms very ornate and spotless. I recommend... More

Poor lighting, by beds and overall. Poor shower spray. Toilet in another room from sink.swinging double doors to bath.Asked for Down pillows, they never appeared. Turn down at night but failed to pick up soiled towels. Noisy with your tour boats on canal.

We stayed here just one night whilst visiting Bruges. The staff were polite and helpful. Hotel is beautiful inside with a lovely room with piano and open fire to sit, relax and have a drink. Hotel is in a great location. Close to the burg and some beautiful views. I highly recommend this hotel, a little gem in the heart... More

The hotel is in a perfect location, just a stroll away from the main market square. We booked a deluxe room with canal view and wasn't dissapointed! With two large windows that looked out onto the canal and a separate bathroom/toilet it was very spacious. The hotel staff were very attentive, especially Melissa who couldn't do enough for us and...

Having stayed at a number of Hotels in Brugges this is the one we always return to., fretted on arrival by one of the charming and helpful,staff. Luggage immediately taken to room and car whisked away to be parked by Levan. Buffet breakfast amazing . Rooms very comfortable and most with view over canal. We will return

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

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....
