Location: Inside the old town, walking distance to all major attractions, 10 minute will get you to the market place (lazy stroll), as many to the begijnhof, so everything within just a short walk. Including a supermarket and of course dozens of shops with beers and chocolate. Oh and restaurants as well of course. Parking is rare but they have a dedicated place just on the other side of the street. Room. We had the one pretty high up. This might be the only negative, especially the first stair is not easy to navigate, certainly not for people who are not really good on their feet. But the room was cozy, lovely decorated, practical, clean, big enough to spend an afternoon in (it was not raining, it was pouring) well insulated against noise (cobblestone street) and had a wonderful view. Staff: From the first moment we felt very welcomed, we received a lot of good info about the town, some insidertips and were always greeted with a smile and no question was too much. Food. There is breakfast and a more than decent one. Bread, cold cuts, cereals, eggs to your liking, pastries... way too much to eat it all and I am certain there were more things. Pretty much enjoyed it and it made for a healthy and satisfying start into the day. The pice level for the well stocked honesty bar is very reasonable as well. Public areas. Clean and nicely decorated as well. Sadly we could not use the real nice looking outside spaces due to the weather. All in all: Not the cheapest stay in Bruges, but certainly a very friendly and cosy and familiar one, if we go back to Bruges our place to stay is already decided upon.

The stay was really nice! The hotel is a lovely Old Townhouse which is located in the Old City Center of Brugge. The rooms are very comfortable and spaceous. The breakfast is served by the host Jason, with whome one can have nice talks and receive great tips for sightseeing etc. Everything is very clean. We definetly recommend this accomodation and would live to stay again!

Jason and Sandra were amazing hosts and couldn’t do enough for us during our stay, from giving tips for getting round the city and recommendations for restaurants. The Townhouse is beautiful, including the stunning entrance and the beautiful bedrooms with no detail missed. Breakfast is included in the room rate and sets you up for a day touring the city. Fruit, cereals, yogurt, eggs, bacon (option for scrambled eggs, smoked salmon), pastries, bread (fresh from the local bakery). Absolutely delicious! The Townhouse is located within the canal system in the city, most of the main areas being a 5-10 mins walk away, but is quiet and the beds are so comfy. Will definitely stay here if we are in Brugge again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others.

This was our ninth stay at the Townhouse and hopefully that should tell you how wonderful it is! Excellent location; near enough to town that it’s an easy walk but far enough away from the hustle and bustle that the nights are quiet. Super comfy beds and clean, cosy rooms with fabulous views. Breakfast is a highlight! Always abundant, delicious and my dietary needs are catered for with no fuss. Sandra and Jason are wonderful hosts, helpful, friendly and welcoming. We’ve already booked for next year.

This was our 2nd visit to the Townhouse and equally as good as our first visit. This is an excellent B&B with just 4 rooms in a great position for the town and also has parking which is good for Bruges. The owners are very friendly and make your stay stress free, nothing seems to be too much trouble, and the breakfast is superb. I can’t fault it and would recommend it to anyone.
