“A great place to stay near Bruges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

In addition to a great room and close location to the main city, Ingrid was a fantastic host during our stay in Bruges.

The room, Fleur, was very large with a clean comfortable bed, and had a bath tub that was way to comfortable.... for a whole lot of reason we don't talk about on Trip Advisor....(wink)

Lastly, and I know this is rarely a commanding feature, but Roose' chocolate shop is just around the corner.... Chocolates... Waffels.... all within 2 minutes??

Absolutely loved our stay in Bruges and in Fort Lapin. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and gorgeous and extremely filling breakfast provided each morning. Though it may look a little bit far out of the centre this really is not a problem- it is a 15 minute lovely walk or even better a 5 minute cycle if you rent a bike (which the owners can arrange for you). I would recommend this accommodation for anyone looking to stay in private and comfortable beautifully presented lodgings.

This was by far the best place to stay in Belgium. Bruges was looking fully booked when we visited but managed to stay at Fort Lapin and it was excellent - the quality of accommodation, room size, breakfast, information provided by the hostess and value for money were all very good. Despite not being located in the old quarter, it was worth the extra walk to and from the hotel (an extra 15 min on foot), and we chose different routes each time to experience something unique each time. Thank you, Ingrid, for making us feel at home.

Fort Lapin was a lovely surprise after hours driving to Bruges. It had everything we wanted from our trip - close to the city but not right in the middle, lush room with a comfy bed and fantastic food (The breakfasts are the best bit!). And all of this for a great price - we even got a free homemade brownie thrown in by the lovely hostess, Ingrid. Only thing I would say is our room didn't have a door to the bathroom...bit embarrassing in the start of a relationship but definitely a story for the grandkids! Go in Summer - it's an unforgettable city and this place makes it that much better =)

We spend 2 nights in this very beautiful B&B and would recommend it to everyone. The owners are friendly and cooked up a nice breakfast!

The room was nice with a great view, bed was good and bathroom was clean.
Location was ok, 15 min walk to city centre and bus available.

This B & B is a hidden gem, away from the tourist area of Bruges. Absolutely fantastic accommodation and the most charming of owners, Ingrid, provides the best breakfast in the world. Free parking, vegetarian friendly breakfasts included, sumptuous beds. Very stylish and completely relaxed and super clean.

The building is beautiful. Rooms are great. Very clean. Very comfortable. Services is excellent. Ingrid the owner is very helpful.
My only fault is its location. Approximately 20minutes walk from the centre of town. It is a lovely walk however and there is a trail taking you past the canal and windmills. Good way to see parts of bruge off the tourist track.
