Went to bruges on a mini break stayed at the academies for two nights,on arrival to hotel having walked from station in the pouring rain ,we were greeted by a lovely young lady on the reception who told us our room was ready to use straight away,which we were pleased about as we arrived 3hrs before check in time.Good size room very clean,the continental buffet breakfast was very good plenty of choice all in all enjoyed our stay at the academies and would go back there.Bruges is a lovely place even though it rained for most of our stay we would definitely go back.

Stayed here for the rememberence weekend on a bed and breakfast basis. The welcome from staff on reception was warm and they checked us in efficiently. Our room was spotlessly clean and had all the extras you would expect _ hairdryer, toiletries, tea/coffee. Breakfast wasn't great but it certainly didn't spoil our stay. At £220 per person for 3 nights including coach travel I couldn't fault it and certainly felt it was value for money.

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Academie for the past four years and always found the staff to be very friendly and courteous the rooms were very clean and tidy and its location is good for exploring Bruge

Room Tip: try to get a room facing the road they tend to be bigger

We stayed here on a three night break organised by Riveria Travel. Although we had no complaints with the hotel per se, I do not think that it is up to 4 Star Standard. This is for two reasons. Firstly, as can be seen in my photographs, our carpet in Room 113 had several tears in the carpet. Secondly, although the Breakfast Buffet was plentiful, the Croissants and Pan au Chocolat were not up to the usual continental standard. These could have been due to the fact that I saw identical products on sale at Carrefour just around the corner. The ones for sale in the many local bakeries looked and probably were far more appetising! Tea and coffee making is provided with a maximum of two Tea Bags, two Coffee Packets and two Sugar Lumps per day. Fresh milk can be obtained from Carrefour just around the corner (turn right out of the hotel, then right again and you are nearly there). There is a fine for boiling something other than water in the kettle (no I have no idea what either). There is FREE Wi-Fi something that should be free in every hotel. The speed and reliability is very good.

All the staff we came into contact with were very friendly and spoke perfect English. The hotel is situated in a great location. The only downside to this is that coaches cannot enter the Old Town unless dropping off or picking up passengers with suitcases. Going on trips means at least a ten minute walk for the able bodied and longer if like me you have difficulties.

Although the road outside the hotel is one way, this does not apply to Bikes, so LOOK BOTH WAYS when exiting as the pavement is narrow. And remember like England some bikes do not have lights!

I stayed in Hotel Academie as part of a city break trip with Riviera Travel. I paid a single supplement, having a room to myself. My two friends had a double room. Everything about the hotel was excellent! The staff were all very friendly. The room was clean, a good size, warm and extremely comfortable. The breakfast was of a very high standard with pastries, fresh fruit, cheeses and cold cuts and a large choice of cereals and yogurt. The position of the hotel was very convenient for exploring the wonderful city of Bruges. I would definitely stay at the hotel again and will definitely be visiting Bruges again.

Stayed here with friends on a three night break organised by Riviera Travel and could not have made a better choice. Friendly, helpful reception staff in a hotel that is situated near all the best sights of lovely Bruges. What more could you want. Room was spacious, modern and very clean with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Lighting system has a mind of its own and we never did quite master that but overall everything was excellent. Buffet breakfast had a varied selection of hot and cold dishes to suit everyone. Would stay here again. Highly recommend.

Just back from a lovely weekend in Brugge. The hotel was perfect for us. Clean and very friendly staff and access to Wi-Fi. Great location, we were able to walk to it from the train station and it was comfortable walking distance to the square. There were a lot of little coffee shops, restaurants and patisseries near by .. and of course the brewery. Will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the court yard. This was great for us as it was quite.
