We arrived in Bruges to do a few hours of shopping, eat chocolate, drink a few beers and head on our way. But found ourselves having to stay overnight due to the fact that our luggage was stolen out of our car. Everyone in Bruges was very surprised to hear that, since the crime rate is low there. Our friends who we were traveling with us are from England, and all of her very important medicines and lap top were stolen as well. We had nothing but the clothes on our backs. It was getting late on and we needed a hotel, we happened to come across the Golden Tree. Francine the owner was the nicest and most helpful person. Not only did she make a way for us to have a room, but provided night clothes, extra pillows and such, great parking, and provided an excellent breakfast. She went way beyond the call of duty, helped our friends get the medication they needed from the UK, and helped us get into her other hotel across the city center. Both of the hotels (the other The Academy) are excellent, clean, comfortable, convenient, and the breakfasts are wonderful. We will stay again with Francine and either of these hotels in the future if we ever find ourselves in Bruges again. Also the charity shops especially the Sue Ryder (I believe) were awesome to help out with clothes and shoes. We had a wonderful time and experience, everyone friendly and helpful, besides the fact that we were robbed. We decided that whoever did such a crime could not have been from Bruges!!!!
