“You won't get better than Huis Koning”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Once again we returned to what feels like a home from home. The welcome from Lynn was lovely with a beer and a wine each. Our room was as always very clean and excellent. Lynns breakfast selection was very good (as always) with cheeses, hams, sausages, pastries and always eggs cooked to your choice.

This b and b can't be faulted, not just for the excellent service, welcome, cleanliness and food but one of the main assets is the location. It is within a 5 minutes walk to all the good bars, restaurants and places to visit but tucked away so there is no noise what so ever.

If you can book here then please do so, there are only 3 rooms so you best move fast. The room we always choose (Ter Reie) over looks the little canal which is lovely.

Bruges itself is a great little city with great food and bars. Everyone is very polite and I have never seen any trouble. Every where is within walking distance.

Room Tip: Book the Ter Reie room, it over looks the little canal

Best one B&B ever. Lynn and Peter are really good, kind and helpful. Lynn knows all about Brugge and about how to make your journey comfortable with a lot of fun and joy. Tasty breakfast, sweet bed and friendly family. You want the best - that's it.

I can't say that Huis Koning is the best place to stay in Bruges, but that's only because I haven't stayed at every inn in this wonderful city. I can; however, unequivocally state that if you do choose to stay here you will have chosen exceptionally wisely. From the moment you walk into their inn, Lynn and Peter do everything to make sure your stay is better than enjoyable. Before you arrive, they've already considered every possible detail, no matter how small (bottle of water on your bedside table, a make-up mirror in the bathroom, Biscuits and Chocolates in your room, a wealth of various Bruges travel guides and maps, L'Occitane bath products, Luxurious towels, etc...etc...etc...and I haven't even mentioned the decadent food that is seemingly available 24/7 in the kitchen). Almost always upon arriving at a hotel or inn, the reality of the property doesn't live up to the pictures provided on the inn's website. This is one of the very rare places where I would vehemently argue that the pictures Huis Koning provides don't do justice to the beauty and welcoming environment of the actual property. Lynn and Peter basically bend over backwards to make sure your stay in Bruges is as great as possible. From suggesting dinner places (and making reservations for you), to pointing out the 'must see' sites in the city (and even providing you a detailed map on how to get there), to serving up one of the best breakfasts you'll ever receive while traveling - their welcoming service is honestly second to none.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Augustijn room. It was wonderful. All three rooms are on the same floor. The inn...

From the moment of dropping off suitcases early and receiving a cup of coffee to the excellent breakfast the following morning we were unable to fault this lovely place.
Forget the hotels and stay here as the reviews speak for themselves? You wont be disappointed.
Ps: we will be back even though we live in Australia

We travelled to Bruges our First Wedding anniversary on the 6th December and stayed for 2 nights, we found the B and B on trip advisor and after reading reviews had no doubt of where we wanted to stay. Huis Koning is just the most beautiful little place, from the second we arrived to see christmas garland over the door i knew i was going to love it! the building itself is just so quaint and pretty, then inside is even better. Down to every deatil in all of the rooms are areas everything is perfect. All the attention and love Lynn puts into the B and B is very clear to see.We chose the room that faced the canal as we wanted the view, we were told this was the smallest room but more than big enough for us. Decor was lovely, bathroom just amazing and bed was the most comfy we had slept in! Breakfast was delicious, all home made jams and pastries and a tastiest egg on toast! We had lovely home made cakes whe we returned on th first day and homemade belgium chocolate mousse the next. Lovely touches liek this make this place truly special. Lynn was so helpful, she booked our restaurants for us, gave us lots of info on things to do and see. Bruges is a lovely place, made even better by this little gem of a B and B. You are a few minutes from main market square yet its so peaceful and quiet at the B and B, we can't wait to visit again. The Christmas markets were good and was lovely just to wander round. It really is a great place for relaxing few days. Thank you Lynn and Peter for a wonderful stay and I am sure we will see you again soon.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice and all different, one has canal view, one is larger with a bath tub. Depends wha...

We had 2 rooms from 8 December for 2 nights. Both were beautifully appointed with quality all around. the baths were great! L'Occitane products and lots of bath salts and bubble bath gels. The personal touches were appreciated, from the baked goodies left in the rooms, to the restaurant recommendations. Lynn was a great chef and hostess. Nothing negative to say. Great breakfasts with homemade breads and jams and pastries. The back porch facing a small canal is right out of a fairy tale!! The location is excellent. Just far away from the congestion of the Markt, or center, but just a leisurely 5-10 minute walk.

Room Tip: One room has a bath tub, Augustijn.

Huis Koning really is a beautiful place to stay. Lynn is a wonderful hostess and looked after us really well (even when we had forgotten our international plug adapters and she provided us with a whole box full to borrow!). We visited this gorgeous B&B for my other half's 30th birthday and we were not disappointed. The room was absolutely beautiful (we stayed in St Jacob) and the afternoon treats we came home to everyday (hand made by Lynn) were absolutely delicious! Definitely comes highly recommended!!
