“Wonderful Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

B&B Review

What a great find! This was a *wonderful* little gem just outside of Brugges. The couple that run the place are so friendly and helpful. Not only did they help me out with directions and ideas for places to see, but they even arranged for a special request upon my arrival. I personally think the owners make a big difference in a B&B experience, and this family was as warm, welcoming, and friendly as I can imagine.

One note: This is not directly in the city center of Bruges. To me this was actually preferred. They have bikes you can use and a ride into the city is only about 10 minutes of travel along easy bike paths. There is also a bus stop at the end of the street that will take you right into the city. Brugges is a wonderful city, but it was nice to escape to the peace and quiet of the nice suburban neighborhood where the house is located. There are also a number of good restaurants within a few blocks of the house. Both of the ones I ate at "Passe-O" and "Delekpot" were fantastic. The best part (other than the great food) is that they aren't tourist traps nor filled with tourists. Both places had staff that spoke english but they were clearly local joints. There is also a pub just around the corner if you want to live it up a little.

The breakfast spread each morning was simply amazing. Each day was a new selection of rich breads and unique cheeses, along with oatmeal, yogurt, juice, etc. I will say I never lacked for a filling and delicious meal there. The family is very focused on organic and natural products, so if that's something you look for, you'll find it here. If not, you still win because everything was that much more delicious.

One final note: This is a perfect spot if you are traveling with children. I was alone on this last trip, but my kids would have loved the house. They have children of their own, so the house and property are very kid friendly. If kids scare you, you shouldn't stay away though - their's are very well behaved (and quiet) so it's still a great romantic spot for singles or those of us parents trying to escape for a short bit ;)

I really can't offer enough praise. I really, really enjoyed my visit there. If you are going to visit the area, you would do well to stay there.

Room Tip: The room was very nice. I stayed in the 2 bed room with the "odd" stairs another commenter...
