Our stay at Geerwijn B&B in Brugges was wonderful to say the least. First, Chris made the reservation process via the web painless. She also provided excellent recommendations on places to eat over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The location is fantastic, literally 3 minutes walk to the center of the main square and bell tower. Though parking is a challenge, Chris provided easy directions to areas of free parking within a 10 minute walk. The guest house is a traditional Belgian row house in main Brugge, narrow and three floors high. The main floor has a wonderfully decorated sitting room and breakfast table (and her kitchen). Guests are free to use the room; and enjoy the provided sherry and port wines and Belgian chocolate treats that she provides. The main double guest rooms are nicely appointed, but because we had three adults we had the attic room at the very top of the building (two flights up) -- a room with sloping ceilings and walls, painted in crisp white paint on the wooden panels. If you are claustrophobic it might not suit you but it has its own charm that makes it memorable. The views out the windows looked across the street and across some of the tiled rooftops. Chris provides a very substantial breakfast with all the expected European treats -- brotchen, meats, cheeses, eggs, condiments and so on. Bottom line -- this B&B is highly recommended -- the location is perfect, Chris is wonderful and makes you very welcome, and the facilities are well above average.
