Recently spent 3 nights here with my fiancée, we had the most amazing time. Location is amazing, only a few minutes walk to the Belfry & Markt, overlooks Church of our Lady, with beautiful views of the canals right from the room. Lyn, the host, was unbelievably accommodating, giving us a great 20 minute info session on what restaurants & sights to see during our stay; she also gave us champagne on the roof terrace while pointing out the sights of the city! We stayed in the master suite, which was beautiful. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was beautiful, and the sitting room/kitchen was so useful!

This was truly one of our favorite accommodations while traveling & it helped make Bruges a magical visit for us. I would absolutely recommend Canalside House to everyone!

The website isn't exaggerating when it promises "The charme of private home and the comfort of a luxury hotel." Considerably larger than most NYC apartments, and overlooking a quiet canal, this was one of the most comfortable accommodations I've stayed in anywhere in Europe. The website does not do it justice. The host, Lyne, was welcoming, gracious, and helpful throughout, welcoming us (and sending us off) with glasses of champagne and offering advice and securing reservations. Make sure you take a coffee on the roof of the adjacent property, which offers views of the belfry and church.

I stayed in the Perle Suite at the Canalside house for 4 nights in mid-May and it was awesome. It is such a beautiful place and Lyne was so kind and helpful. She even did me some special favors and when I wanted to pay her for her trouble she wouldn’t accept any money. The apartment is huge and lovely and the location can’t be beat. And you will love the canal view from the bedroom window.

If we could rate this place higher than 5 stars we would! From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. From the personal explanation about must-see places in Bruge, to the accomodations, to the location. This has been one of the most amazing experiences we have had during our many travels. Lyn was exceptionally inviting and helpful but the entire staff was amazing. If we are ever lucky enough to find ourselves in Bruges again we would most definitely stay here! We are so thankful that we switched up accomodations at the last minute. We found a true gem in Canalside House!

conveniently located for both the railway station and the centre of town. I had a small hiccough on arrival as the owner doesn't stay at Canalside house and for some reason the buzzer didn't work. Fortunately this was rapidly resolved with a telephone call. The views from the windows are outstanding. Lynne who runs the place is very friendly. Breakfast is at the neighbouring and exceedingly posh Bonifcace B&B and is truly outstanding (one of the best breakfasts I've ever had). Mostly it is very quiet, but for some reason we heard a lot of noise on the second night and couldn't figure out if it was the other guests at the B&B having a very noisy time in the bathroom or the next door flat doing redecoration. It was a shame as it spoilt what was otherwise a perfect stay.

We stayed at the Canalside for 4 nights and couldn't fault it. The suite was very comfortable and spacious and you feel as if your are at home. Some nice touches, including complimentary drinks which were replenished each day and they also allowed us to leave our luggage at their Bed and Breakfast place a few doors along on the day we were leaving. Would definitely recommended it.

My wife and I had an amazing stay here in the cozy and beautifully appointed junior suite with a beautiful canal view. We were supremely comfortable and every wish we had was immediately taken care of, from an offer of a glass of champagne at arrival, to very late check out (due to room availability) at no extra cost. We will be recommending this guesthouse to everybody we know, and look forward to staying again soon.

We stayed here for two nights and the place was absolutely gorgeous, in the center of Bruges and within minutes walking distance to restaurants and museums. The only downside was the pillows which didn't really feel up to par with the standard of the rest of the place. All in all a wonderful stay.

I booked a surprise trip to Bruges for my girlfriends 25th birthday and we were so happy to find this gem of an apartment overlooking the canal. We were welcomed by Lynn who gave us a bit of history of the area and we enjoyed an incredible apartment that featured jacuzzi, a very comfy bed and everything else you would want in a peaceful setting. The location is fantastic- 5 minutes walk to the main square and to the area overlooking the canal with bars and restaurants.
We had breakfast and dinner at lovely cafés and restaurants nearby and the most disappointing thing was only staying for 2 nights! Bruges is a beautiful and romantic place and this apartment is the perfect place to stay if you want a peaceful / romantic trip.
