Staying on a barge converted into a hotel... Very exciting. We stayed in a deluxe room which I'm glad off as the others looked small. We had amazing views down the river, rooms clean although cluttered and used as storage (understandable as we were on a barge) we would have liked some tea making facilities in the room and when...

10 minutes walk from the City centre, through Minnewater Park. Quirky but acceptable (if slightly small) rooms on barge. Clean, but let down by slightly poor maintenance (needed shower seeing to and toilet flush mending), not so great housekeeping (toiletries not replenished) but would definitely stay there again next time. Restaurant not there daily so cannot comment. But breakfasts were... More

This hotel looks fantastic and we had such a quirky little room looking out across the water. We stayed on our last night in Brugge and we found this a nice quiet place to stay in comparison with our city centre lodging the night before. It was more out of the way than other hotels and after our busy day... More

We stayed two nights. We were disappointed that the restaurant was not open for dinner, but found a nice restaurant on another barge close by (Mayflower Lighthouse Barge). We were able to easily walk to the old town, which is delightful. The rooms are a bit tight, but otherwise comfortable. Worth a visit, if only for the uniqueness. The breakfast... More

We booked the de Barge hotel because of the novelty of staying on a barge and it was away from the noise of the city centre. In that respect we were not disappointed. However, there are a couple of areas that let them down. The first was the fact that the restaurant was only open at the weekend, something that... More

I first stayed at De Barge back in the late 80's when I lived in Germany. My wife and I recently travelled to Brugge and I took advantage of the chance to stay there again. I was not disappointed. The advantage that De Barge has is its uniqueness. A converted grain barge, moored to the side of the canal, it... More

We stayed on the Barge two or three years ago and enjoyed it so much we decided to make it stopover for our motorbike trip from Norway back to the UK. As previously the experience was a good one and I'd recommend it if only for the novelty value! However, we chose the same room as before (an end room,... More

First timers in Bruges and this was quirky and fun! Only 15 minutes walk through a lovely park and you are in the beautiful city. (I'm walking with a stick following surgery and it really is an easy walk!). Free parking, friendly welcome, tasteful decor, spotlessly clean cabin and bathroom. Love the extra touch of the life jackets on the... More

The hotel is easy to find on the outskirts of Bruges. It is next to a coach/car park but once inside this is not an issue. There is parking outside on the street which was convenient and free. This is not a place to stay if you cannot negotiate steps or stairs! The rooms are on the small side and... More

This is our second time at de barge. Canal side view was ok, more noisy than the onshore side it is on a working canal. Yes rooms are small, you wouldn't live in it at home but its perfectly acceptable as a holiday room. Everything was clean/tidy, there was some painting work outside but it started after 9 and finished... More
