Our family of 5 stayed in the spacious loft suite on 2 floors with living area. Frieda and Benno are extremely hospitable, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fabulous, huge and delicious (Benno's omelettes were a highlight). Today (Easter Sunday) there was even an Easter egg for our 7 year old! Highly recommended! We'll be back!

My husband and I spent three nights here at the end of February. It was great ..comfy and cozy. Freida and Benno were great although Benno was sick so we didn't see much of him. Breakfast was awesome. Just a short walk to the main square. We would definitely stay again. Thank you Frieda and Benno! Curt and Norie

My wife and I spent two cozy nights here at the end of 2014. Our room was very spacious, and came with a suited bathroom (down a short flight of stairs). Frieda and Benno were perfect hosts, and run an outstanding B&B. The continental breakfast is seriously the best I've ever had; you'd expect to pay $20 for a similar... More

The b&b is located in a quiet residential area of Bruges within 5 minutes walking distance from the central square. The room was very tidy and clean, the breakfast (very good!) was served in the living room warmedby a fireplace and the atmosphere was so relaxing! The price was correct. This was absolutely the best place to stay!

We loved our stay at the Absoluut Verhulst. The location is perfect, 5 minute walk to downtown! The room is very spacious, clean, well decorated. Breakfast is amazing! Freida & Benno are excellent hosts. Would definitely recommend!

There is not much more that needs to be said about this wonderful place as the other reviews have pretty much already pointed it out. My wife and I stayed with Benno & Freida for 3 nights. By far the finest B&B we have experienced to date. In addition to all the attributes such as warmth, comfort, cleanliness, room size,... More

One of the best B and B's we've ever stayed in. Comfortable, warm and cozy in December, a great base from which to explore Bruges. Excellent bed, spacious room, gracious, helpful hosts and delicious, hearty breakfast. An absoluut delight!

What a fantastic place. Can't rate it highly enough. Worth double what they charge. Only a short walk to the square. The owners are super friendly and happy to meet your every need. The breakfast is a must. Best I've ever ever had.

We stayed in the Garden room for three nights. This is a lovely room on the 2nd floor overlooking the back garden. The room is quite large. The private bathroom is also quite large, but located down some steep steps (see photos). Because of the steps to the bathroom, I would not recommend this room if a guest cannot handle... More

Wow..this place just blew us away...not only is the place cosy, clean and well located but also has very hospitable hosts. The hosts Benno and Freida were very welcoming and settled us in so well. Their B&B is just a five minute walk from the main streets, and in way thats nice that it is central but not in the... More
