“Great hotel”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Great very large bathroom, with separate bath and shower. Modern design large bedroom, memory phone mattress which I don't like, but that's just a personal thing. Free parking and free wifi, excellent breakfast. It's about a 10 min drive to Brugge centre by car.

Stayed here for two nights from 18/09/12 until 20/09/12 the hotel is very easy to get to, we travelled from Dunkirk and found it easily, our room was on the third floor and was very large, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the bathroom was fantastic, with a walk in shower and a bath, We ate in the hotel both nights we stayed and the service and food was excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We choose this hotel as it was about half the cost of staying in the centre of Brugge for 4 nights B&B. The hotel is very easy to find just off the E40 motorway and easy to navigate from Euro Tunnel (no sat nav required - its that easy with an old fashioned map and roadsigns!). Ample free parking. Nice relaxed 12.00 lunchtime check out time. The receptionist when we arrived was so enthusiastic and happy you couldn't but help smile back (Evie?). She also explained the best way to get to Brugge was on the public bus and gave us directions to the bus stop and a timetable** as well as a map of Brugge. All the staff we encountered at the hotel spoke excellent English, and seemed willing/happy to do so. We were given a complimentry upgrade to a comfort room with a view of the field out the back which was big and clean with tea/coffee, (the bar happily gave us a small jug of fresh milk to take up) a hairdryer, iron & ironing board, mini-bar, TV, two warbrobes with sufficient hangars, extra blankets & pillows. The bathroom was big, in good condition and had a seperate bath and shower.
We had a drink in the bar/terrace and a meal in the restaurant on our first night which was very pleasant, excellent food although a little expensive (target market and about the same cost as eating in central Brugge). Breakfast was VERY good - lots to choose from and all very nice - the best breakfasts I have had in a mainland Europe Hotel. We did not have time to use the fitness suite etc so unable to comment on this.
Minus points that didn't give this place 5/5 for the price:-
Whilst beds are very much personal choice we both found this one a bit too soft for our liking but it was certainly huge, confortable with a very thick duvet.
There was sometimes a drain-type smell in the bathroom.
The Wi-Fi only worked in the areas of room more central to the hotel eg just inside the door/bathroom area and not at the desk, near the bed or windows.
The general theme/decoration & carpets are dark giving quite an oppressive feel (again personal choice) and there was some staining, possibly from a chemical cleaner, on the carpet.
The traffic noise from the motorway can be heard -not an issue for us and it is not loud with the door to the small balcony closed. The hotel will give you ear plugs for free if needed.
The restaurant was not as clean as it could be, eg fries in the radiator and evidence someone had used the curtain to wipe their fingers.
No swimming pool to accompany the fitness centre.

All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone who does not mind doing a bit of extra walking before and after their day out in Brugge, and I would stay here again (the minus points are really quite minor) and would consider other hotels in the Van Der Valk chain based on the stay at this one. Overall it was a very good expereince and we had nothing to complain about. Bear in mind that is is a corporate chain hotel, and it is not a cosy family establishment.

**The bus stop for routes 20 & 21 is a brisk 12-15 minute walk through an industrial estate area and is located outside a newsagents where you can buy a "saver" type ticket which worked out at 90cents per person each way. The busses run loosly to the timetable, especially on the return journey from Brugge and on the way back you have to request the bus to stop by pressing the bell - there is a handy yellow/green BRICO sign on the left hand side just before to help time the button pressing! The bus stops at Brugge train station where it is another 10-15 minute walk to the Market Square in the centre. All the bus drivers we saw spoke good English. It is also possible to get the train but this is about a 20-25 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel "special rate" for a taxi was 19.50Euro each way, so bus and a bit of extra walking well worth it. There are also park and ride schemes in Brugge if you want to drive, but not if you want to sample Belgian beer!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the car park are facing away from the motorway (although its still a busy "A...

We stayed here for one night during trip from Austria to UK. Excellent location close to motorway, 15 minutes drive from centre of Bruges and 70 minutes from Calais Eurotunnel terminal. Hotel is large with 106 rooms and large free car park. Our room (28 on ground floor)was very comfortable, only problem was an unpleasant smell in the bathroom which seemed to be coming from the drains, staff were very apologetic. The TV was "interesting", you had to press 4 buttons to switch it on? We didn't eat in the hotel, the attractions of Brugge were too tempting. Based on this visit we would certainly stay again during 'transit' across Europe.

Ok. I'll tell you the story: I was travelling from London to Hamburg by car. I took the ferry from Dover to Calais in the middle of the night.
I came by the Van der Valk Hotel Brugge and was tired and I decided to go for a nap and then continue to travel. I arrived at the hotel in by 3 in the night and was very thankful that there was a hotel.
I did not know at all what I would to expect: A good room but so dark. A bed you'll dive into the matres, but comfy after a long drive. A shower, a TV, free Internet WLAN and clean for less a EUR 100,- thats good.
BUT: If you happen to have a Philip Starck allergy you should defenately avoid this place. It is realy to much of a plagiat, that it can become a dark nightmare of design.

Beside that? A verry nice place to stay for less then a 100 including breakfast.

Really can't priase this hotel highly enough. I booked it becasue it had a nice big carpark for the camper van and looked nice at a reasonable price. Nice doesn't begin to describe how good this hotel is. The staff were fanstastic, friendly, welcoming and incredibly helpful. The decor is modern and beautiful and the room was huge and stunningly decorated. We ate in the restaurant and although not cheap cheap, our meal and drinks came to about £40, was a good size portion and served in an outstanding setting by brilliant staff.There are jacuzzis and a fitness suite which are impeccibly clean, the bar and outside area and lovely and the whole feel is great.
I'd stay here in an instant again. It's about 20 minutes from Bruges itself(and very easy to find) so don't chose this if you want to wander into the main town but as a stop off if you have a car or just for the sheer joy of staying here, go for it.

My wife and I stopped in this hotel for 4 nights when visiting the Bruge/Brussells area. The room was tastefully decorated and could not fault anything at all. We had a room that was furthest away from the motorway so we did not hear any traffic when the windows were closed but it might be a problem if you were nearer. I would definately recommend this for a few days stopover.

Room Tip: Try and get a room away from the motorway
