“I agree - except for the coffee”
Reviewed July 6, 2010

I can only agree with the consistently good review this guesthouse has recieved. We spent 4 extremely relaxed and pleasant days in Bruges. Our host John really made us feel at home. We did not make a lot of research before going to Bruges so the information about the city he presented with a nice sense of humour was very welcome. We stayed in the Rembrandt suite. The bedroom and the living room are very big with nice beds and furniture. The bathroom is also very nice with a shower and a big free standing bathtub. It was very hot (up to 35 degrees) while we were in Bruges but the rooms stayed reasonably cool even if there is no air condition. The breakfast was freshly prepared with different selections of fruit etc. each day. When we mentioned to John that we would post a review he asked us to write about both positive and negative experiences. The only negative thing I can think about was the coffee in the morning. I really like good coffee. In my view coffee brewed on a coffee machine like the Phillips Senseo does not come into this category however this small complaint does not rfefrain me from giing Huis't Shaep the highest possible rating.

Just spent our 10th anniversary weekend at this guesthouse and it was so romantic. The owners did an excellent job with the refurbishment, are knowledgable about the history of the house and about Bruges in general and the service plus the breakfast are very good. There are of course some rooms for improvement. I would prefer the finishing touches to be as refined as the service, such as specially branded shampoo & shower gel instead of 'Dove' ones or the presence of a room service telephone in the room... but that is probably just me being fussy.

When we entered the hotel there was a feeling of calm and relaxation. We were welcomed by John who looked after us very well through out our stay. We stayed at the Rembrance suite which was beautifully furnished (as is the whole house), and the bed was so comfertable I had problems getting out of it in the morning!
We would most definately stay again at this hotel, everything was perfect including the location.

My husband and I had a short break in Bruges and the Huis 't Schaep was one of the most beautiful places we have stayed. We were in the Coucke suite and it was just lovely - very large bedroom with a fantastic canopy bed. The bathroom featured a beautiful stained glass window as well as a beautiful bath and double shower. The host was lovely and gave us plenty of good recommendations for restaurants and day trips. I could go on and on - haven't even mentioned the breakfasts and the fantastic location - I would recommend this to anyone!

We had a outstanding week-end to celbrate the 50 year aniversary of our parents. We stayed with 7 persons and never have received such an excelent service, breakfast and beatifull restored spacious suites. The host also can give you a historic tour of the guesthouse which gives an excellent overview on the tremendous amount of work they have done to het this guesthouse in the perfect shape it is at the moment.

We loved this guesthouse. It had very beautiful spacious rooms. The new roof terrace was a great place to relax before going out for the evening. The host was lovely in ensuring we had all we needed and the breakfasts were very delicous. We will defeintely return to this guesthouse when we come back to Bruges - as well as being a beautiful place ot stay it is also perfectly placed to have all the sights a short walk away.
