“First class service”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We stayed for three nights on our first visit to Brugge. John and Rob are exceptional hosts, nothing is too much trouble. John marked on our map all the interesting little places to explore that we would have missed otherwise. He recommended some fabulous bars and restaurants, which were way better than the tourist traps in the main squares. The yummy breakfast prepared by Rob was different each day, with plenty of options. John organized bikes for us for to ride out to Damme and back via the windmills, and through the town. Our room had amazing architectural features that were hundreds of years old, but featured all the mod conveniences and an especially comfortable bed. This is such a unique home with amazing features and antique furniture, and so much attention to detail. We would love to come back - loved the B&B, loved Brugge.

Everything about this guest house was perfect. The location: close to the cathedral and all other attractions yet on a quiet street which was silent at night. The elegance and comfort of the Grade I listed building with beautiful and original furnishings and a very comfortable bed. The friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts, recommending restaurants, visits and even accomodation for our onward trip to Gent. The delicious breakfast which was included in the price but was very complete including fresh fruit, juices, breads & croissants, yoghurt and eggs with bacon or salmon. The honesty bar with its pleasant terrace and exceptionally low prices. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

Small, boutique period home with 4 rooms for rent. Excellent decor, friendly service. The hosts were organised, helpful and multilingual. The place is adorned with fresco's and scattered with (faux) antiques. It's pretty central and particularly close to the shopping strip. The can make bikes available to hire should you wish -- I'd recommend these as biking around Brugge is exceedly easy (nothing like Amsterdam).

We stayed 2 nights in this charming period property that is situated 5 mins walk from the Cathedral and the 'Memlings' in the St. Jan Hospital.
We stayed in the Coucke Suite that is situated on the top floor, up some steep narrow stairs so you need to be fit and able to climb stairs to stay in this and the Ruben Suite. The room was spacious as was the shower. Bed was comfortable and clean. Kettle, water and tea/coffee facilities in the room. Courtesy bar, one floor down, and terrace. Breakfasts were wonderful and sustaining.
I would recommend this B&B to my friends and would stay again if i am in Bruges.

Very friendly, small and exquisite B&B in a quiet street near central Bruges.
Huge rooms - like sleeping in a vast and elegant drawing room, deep baths, gorgeous pre-Raphaelite décor and delicious breakfasts.
Owner John was charming and very helpful with recommendations for restaurants, bike rentals, and cycling excursions.
The only (minor) drawback was that the highly comfortable 'double' beds were in fact two single mattresses, which means you risk slipping into the gap between the two.
But in general I cannot recommend this too highly. A jewel of a spot.

Room Tip: Rubens at the back is huge, quiet and comfy.

Wow, what a gem. We stayed at the Huis 't Schaep for two nights staying in the Rubens Suite. it was our 25th anniversary and we could not of asked for anything more amazing, luxurious and special. The hosts were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They gave us a very warm welcome into their house which they have restored beautifully.Breakfast was served in an exquisite dining room with a lovely choice of food. The hosts were on hand for anything we needed, suggesting places to see in Bruges, and offering to book restaurants for evening meals. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about Bruges, and the history of the Sheep house. Everywhere was immaculately clean. Also an honesty bar was available where you were able to enjoy your drink on the terrace. We will definitely be returning to this great guesthouse next time we visit beautiful Bruges and passing the word round for others to stay at Huis 't Schaep. if you want a special room and to be made to feel like a king and queen the Reubens Suite is for you.

We enjoy staying in B&B's in the US and abroad, so we were looking forward to our stay at Huis 't Schaep. We stayed for three nights and the stay exceeded our expectations. John and Rob completed an extensive renovation of the former home of 19th century glazier and ceramic painter Samuel Coucke. John took us on a tour of the kitchen and some of the other not always seen parts of the home where they meticulously restored and show case some of Coucke's work. The renovation is exquisite and the theme carried through to our room with the decor which included a lovely stained glass window above the clawfoot bathtub. Each daily breakfast was substantial with fresh squeezed orange juice. John and Rob respected our privacy, but also answered all our questions, provided recommendations, and addressed individual needs such as calling a restaurant to clarify a food allergy, and were delightful hosts. We will return here in the future and highly recommend Huis 't Schaep to others. It was an excellent choice for celebrating our anniversary.
