Just spent a lovely weekend in Bruges with my wife and friends, we stayed at the De Barge Boat hotel, pretty much ticked all the boxes. We drove over on Friday night, Sat Nav took us straight there, free easy parking next to the coach park. Easy check in, cosy nautical themed rooms. Easy 15 min walk into the centre,... More

This hotel on a converted barge on the peaceful waters of the peripheral canal is a real treasure. Just 10 minutes walk across Minniewater Park to the chocolate, beer and lace delights of this very pleasant city. The 'cabins' are surprisingly roomy and very cosy, even on the coldest day. The pleasure of having ever hungry ducks as your alarm... More

Friendly staff, good size rooms but it doesnt really feel like sleepin on a boat, the equipment of the rooms is pretty old... Not really a great expérience . The location of the hotel is pretty cool, free parking and easy access to the city center. They apparently Have a good restaurant but it s only open on week ends...

It was a neat place, staying right on the river. it was cozy. The Wifi did not work in room. The breakfast was really good. The staff was ok, not rude but not very helpful, they did not want to be bothered. Other than that, nice place to stay, 15 minutes walk to city center and free parking

Convenient for the centre of Bruges (10 minute walk), we liked the room which faced onto the canal and was very quiet. The breakfast was a comprehensive buffet and there was something that suited each one of the four of us. On the down side the staff were perfectly polite but not especially friendly. The bed in our room wasn't... More

Positives: The hotel is very easy to find and has free parking available (city centre hotels this is hit and miss – and chargeable). The room was clean and comfortable – as was the bathroom – and a view over water is always a treat (ask when booking for a canal view). Staff are courteous and helpful. The breakfast (included)...

Don't know why people are moaning. Receptionist was pleasant lent us an electrical adapter when ares didn't fit. Came quick and sorted out TV when I messed it up. Cabins are compact it is a boat after all. Stayed in Room 27 Captains Room. This is the top deck and looks up river. We thought breakfast was really good. Everything... More

Yes, a novelty staying on a barge, but that's about the only good point. Not too far from the centre of Bruges, but only if you are happy to walk. Receptionist was lacking any customer service skills to the point of being rude, not a good start. Curtly told no canal side rooms available, so had to put up with... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay here. We were lucky to be given an upper floor cabin overlooking the canal, with huge barges and smaller boats drifting by, and the ducks and gulls waiting to be fed each morning. The cabin was clean, the beds were comfortable, the shower hot and powerful, the buffet breakfast was excellent, with a... More
