Would recommend. Very friendly. Bed incredibly comfy, clean bedroom, tasty and big breakfast, fancy bathroom (2 sinks) and a really great location, easy access for town and 1/2way from the ferry/train station. Very accommodating for leaving bags and using facilities. Anne even gave me a birthday present. + the brewery is just next door. Really beautiful place to stay.

We have recently returned from an excellent stay at this B&B in Bruges. Ann was a wonderful host and nothing was too much trouble for her, including providing chocolate recommendations. The B&B itself is a 10 minute walk from the train station and 5 minutes from the market square, and most importantly, next door to the Brewery! The location is... More

This B&B is ideal for a visit to Brugges. The location is fantastic, you step out right in the heart of the city. Ann, the owner, was so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The room was comfortable, very clean & had everything we needed for our stay. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We were able to park our... More

Stayed here with 2 other couples so we had the b&b to ourselves. It felt just like home. Rooms were all lovely. Breakfast great. I loved the pastries. Anne wasn't even mad when my husband sat on a chair and it collapsed. We felt bad about it but she reassured us it wasn't a problem. Can't wait to go back.... More

This was recommended to us by friends that had travelled to Bruges in 2011 and I'm so glad it was. It was about a 15 minute walk from the train station and we only had to ask once where we were going. Anne is a great host. Very friendly and full of information about the area and where to by...

We stayed in Den Witten Leeuw for three nights. The B&B is about 15 minutes walking from Bruges station, and is set very close to the centre of the city. Anne, the hostess, was very friendly, chatty, and helpful the whole time we were there, and gave us advice and local knowledge on where to eat, where to hire bikes... More

We spent just two nights with Anne in her historic home in Bruges. She is a wonderful hostess; helpful, charming, and funny. The room had a comfortable bed, antique wardrobe and modern bathroom with a great shower. Tea and coffee in the room, free Wi-Fi, and if the weather had been warmer, a pool in the back garden! Breakfast was... More

We stayed here in Den Witten Leeuw for two nights, and the experience really added to our time in Bruges! It is beautifully decorated and homely, and Anne really looked after us with a great breakfast each morning. Oscar the parrot was a delight, too! Also, it's located right next to the only remaining brewery in Bruges. Just saying.
