“A little slice of Perfection in Bruges”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

I have been to Bruges on quite a few occasions and this is by far the best B&B I have stayed in. In fact its probably the best B&B I've ever stayed in.
We stayed here for New Year 09-10 so its a historical review BUT you can see by the reviews and the absence of any lower scale reviews that this place was and still is excellent.
Its a central B&B about 5-10 minutes walk from the main square. Its close enough to walk to most places of interest but is situated down a quiet street.
The owners are fantastic. A very friendly couple both of whom speak English. I had proposed to my wife on this trip and they even shared a bottle of bubbly with us when we got back to the Hotel. Then when we visited Bruges again in 2011 we popped in to say hi. They remembered us and invited us in for a coffee which enjoyed down on the patio overlooking one of the canals.
We stayed in the St Jacob room which was perfect. The bed was one of the best I have slept in and had a great shower room as well.
Overall this B&B is excellent, for us its a special occasion B&B as there are plenty of B&B's in Bruges that are cheaper but the quality and the owners make this a top top choice for a weekend in Bruges.
We will be returning.

This is a beautifully furnished B&B, and we were made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. Our room was just about perfect.

Nothing seemed to much trouble for our hosts, from the freshly cooked omelettes at breakfast, to finding and booking us a table at their own favourite restaurants. We even found little surprises in our room when we returned in the evening, perhaps some home baked cake!

I thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: There are only three rooms. Two of the rooms look over the canal which is obviously pretty, however...

From the minute we arrived until the morning of our departure our stay in Brugges was made unforgettable by the hospitality of Lyn and Peter. Every review has covered all areas of this b&b. Lyn gave us excellent restaurant recommends, city sights to see and the best breakfasts each morning. This could only be surpased by the afternoon teas provided each day in our room. Freshly made muffins, biscuits, chocolate mouse and belgium chocolate were our treats. The rooms were clean and stylish, nothing spared when renovating for the b&b. We can't wait to return to this b&b and meet our hosts again. Thank you Lyn and Peter for a marvellous stay. It seems the word is out that this is the place to stay.

We were so very happy to return to Huis Koning, and to receive such a warm, friendly greeting from Lynn and Peter and their daughters Sam and Axelle. They spent three years restoring their 17th century home, bringing it to this beautiful, comfortable, and tastefully-appointed state. It is so truly welcoming, it makes us feel as though it were ours. They have thought of everything you could possibly want or need. Believe us when we say that all the glowing reviews you have read about this best-of-the-best B & B are true--they do it perfectly!

There are three beautiful rooms available; we love the room we have stayed in on our visits, Augustijn, for its comfort and well-appointed decor. The spa-like bathroom is pure perfection, with L'Occitane toiletries, sumptuous towels and face cloths, rainwater shower head and full tub, to gorgeous earth-colored marble and rainforest tiles. There is the feeling of being totally pampered by your hosts, Lynn and Peter. Luscious treats await you at Lynn's homemade breakfast every morning, even more choices than we remember from our last visit; fresh coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, cooked to order eggs, specially hand-written labels on each of the breads, waffles, pastries, local meats and cheeses, granola, fresh fruit, yogurt, and jams, made by Lynn's mother, to top things off. When you return to your room after a day touring Bruges specially labeled home-baked treats await you under the tented tray near fresh flowers on your table. A well-stocked mini-fridge is in your room for your indulgence. Lynn and Peter are very kind, thoughtful, and helpful, letting you know what is happening in the town, and extend themselves by making dinner reservations, scheduling taxi services, giving you recommendations for dining and touring activities, all without making you feel as though it is an imposition.

They have created a magical home, lighted with candles at all times of day, with heavenly scents drifting up winding staircase from the kitchen, where coffee and tea facilities are at your fingertips whenever you would like. This is a wonderful place, a special family, and a B & B which is unparalleled. Thank you, Lynn and Peter; we will return.

Room Tip: Though all the rooms are lovely, we prefer Augustijn because that is where we have enjoyed our stays...

Amazing place to stay in. Stayed at the B & B after reading reviews in Tripadvisor. THe best B&B ever. The perfect location, the perfect room and more importantly the perfect host. The room was modern and faultless but what really stole the show was Lynn's hospitality. We have never come accross such hospitality with such personal touch ever. If you are in Bruges, you must stay at Huis Koning.

Thank you Lynn!

Stayed October 6-8th, Lynn and Peter were very welcoming and helpful, the rooms beautiful, the whole house so tastefully furnished and decorated, and the breakfasts and hospitality the very best. This is a wonderful place to stay.

My fiancé & I have just returned from our second visit to Huis Koning and we had such a wonderful time that we have already booked again to visit next year.
The hosts (Lynn and Peter) are such lovely people who will do everything to ensure that you have the perfect stay. The B&B is top class, incredibly clean and beautifully decorated with delicious breakfast (Lynn does the best poached eggs!) and in the perfect location in the heart of the beautiful City of Bruges. I would definitely recommend that you stay at this B&B when you visit Bruges, it is out of this world and we absolutely love it (and I am certain that you will too).
