The hotel was very nice! But the cleaning staff was horrible! Such rude ladies!! But other than that it was awesome! It was very close to everything and the breakfast was delicious! I truly recommend it, nice getaway!

Just come back from a 4 day break in Bruges. We stayed in the lovely De Barge Hotel. The place was spotless and the manager 'Guy' was super helpful. The breakfasts were excellent with lots of choice. The rooms are small but have everything you need and the bed linen was crispy and white. We loved the main town with... More

Away from the crowds and (pedestrian) traffic of Bruges, we found the Barge Hotel, calmly moored on a canal. However, the Old Town is just a short stroll away, on a safe pedestrian path winding through lovely public gardens. We chose to book The Captain’s Cabin; it was very comfortable, with good linens and bedding, writing desk, modern bathroom &... More

Lovely old boat , close to the city , but very disappointing service . Upon arrival , the room was very cold , and the heating did not work . When I told the reception , they said they would try to fix it , and that , "hopefully" the problem would be solved by our return from the restaurant... More

This hotel was perfect for our long weekend in Bruges. It's about 15 mins on foot to the main centre of Bruges but this means it's quiet and there's room to park a car. Our room looked out over the canal, tastefully decorated in nautical theme, and a reasonable size. Breakfast was really good with eggs/ bacon, fresh fruit and... More

Myself and my partner stayed for a short break over my birthday in early December. We loved it. We are a young couple and love places with character that you will remember, this ticked all boxes. 10 min walk to the centre of Bruges maximum. Very quiet area and very friendly staff. The resturant is certianly worth booking if you... More

Spent 1 night here in December. Good location within easy walking distance of the old town and with free parking. Easy access by road. The restaurant was excellent both for an evening meal and breakfast. Reception was extremely efficient and helpful. Rooms a little small, but to be expected, it is a barge after all. A great place to stay... More

If you like boats, you'll love this. A converted cargo barge (not entirely certain about its history) with very pleasant cabins - comfy, cosy, compact, not enormous, but what more do you want? Some cabins have windows which open directly onto the canal for a wonderful morning view. (some cabins overlook the coach park). Easy walk from the Rail Station,... More

We returned today from a wonderful weekend away. We stayed in the barge hotel which is a short walk away from the town. The barge is on the canal that surrounds the city. It is a quirky place clean warm and very welcoming. Breakfast is good and plenty of it. The rooms were clean and more than adequate, yes they... More
