After a disappointing stay at the Royal Astor in Ostend last year, my partner & I went to Bruges & chose the Navarra this time round. Reading the reviews of the hotel was encouraging, and we must wholeheartedly endorse all the positive comments we read. Centrally located but so quiet (we had requested a room overlooking the garden at the back), with everything within a few minutes' walk. Not having a car, we relied on public transport to & from the rail station for day trips, as we didn't know the way, and buses were plentiful - we even found a stop just outside the hotel. 2 computers with internet connections are located in the lobby, free for guests to use - we checked rail timetables & so on - very useful. Our room wasn't especially large, but was comfortable and spotlessly clean, as was the hotel as a whole. The en suite bathroom was a pleasure to use - again, very clean, modern, all fittings etc of a high order & toiletries supplied, along with a hair drier. The room also had a minibar, TV, telephones (although why two, I don't know), trouser press, and a safe. Decoration was also to a high standard & added to the feeling of comfort & cleanliness. The hotel was quiet, with most guests being 30+ and of a respectable type - no drunken singing, shouting, unruly children etc. Breakfast was served 07.00 - 10.00, tea/coffee brought to your table with top-ups available, and a buffet-style breakfast. Cereal was a bit disappointing - horrible cornflakes, and for some reason hotels in Belgium seem to like using milk that tastes like the old "Puroh" stuff we used to have here (can you still get that?) However there was a fresh fruit salad - delicious - and yoghurt, as well as hard & soft boiled eggs, a toaster, and the usual Continental & full English breakfasts. The staff were pleasant & polite and the welcome when we arrived was genuine. We fully intend to return to this beautiful city and will certainly stay again at the Navarra.
