“Wonderful stay in a lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

I would no doubt return to Hotel Ter Duinen if I were to visit Brugge (or Bruges) again. I came across this hotel when searching online and my kids (age 15 & 16) and a friend really liked this place. We had a wonderful stay in this lovely little hotel. The owner gave us a warm welcome and he was helpful in sharing information on places of interest. My kids felt special due to the personalised service given to them by the owner. Located at a quiet place besides the canal and within 15 minutes walk to the market square. Would highly recommend this place.

We really liked this hotel and were pleased with every aspect - from the friendly welcome, to the location, the general ambience and the great breakfast. The room was large, clean and had a lovely view of the canal. Even on the last day we were given some ideas of things to do. Is good value and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Front of the hotel has lovely views of the canal.

A lovely little hotel with family atmosphere, within walking distance of the old town. The breakfast is not only very good, but the landlord has taken the extra time to prepare it outside of schedule for a very early departure in the morning.

Room Tip: The room we had, had a gorgeous view and did everything for us, that we needed, but it was not very...

I came across the Hotel Ter Duinen when looking online for a hotel to accommodate my wife, two children (12 and 10) and me for a weekend away in Bruges. I was not disappointed - we had a very comfortable, warm and airy quadruple room with large en-suite. The staff (including the owners) were excellent - they made us feel very welcome from the outset and were on-hand to offer great advice to enhance our stay in Bruges. They spoke fluent English (unfortunately my Flemish is non-existent). Fabulous breakfast too. Good locaton, right next to a canal and 15 minutes walk to The Markt etc. Secure parking next to the hotel was a welcome addition also. We shall definitely return to Bruges and will head straight for the Hotel Ter Duinen when we do. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Dank U!

Stayed here whilst experiencing the delights of the Christmas markets in Bruges. The owners and staff are extremely helpful and courteous, the hotel itself is spotless and nicely set out. In a nice position about 10 minutes from the main market square,we will return again in the summer.

If you are looking for a quiet bed and breakfast hotel pleasantly situated in a quiet street next to the canal, of the highest standard in every respect, owned and run by a delightful couple, then look no further. You have found it.

Room Tip: Go for a canal view.

We booked this hotel as it was very highly-ranked on Trip Advisor, and I usually rely on it!

We had a 'canal view' room. And while this was technically true, it was on the top floor, so to look out at the canal, one had to stand on tip toes and peer out of the velux windows. However, the view itself was lovely.

It was also listed as a double room, however it was in actuality a family room. 2 separate single beds, along with a 'double bed' consisting of two single beds pushed together.

Taking a shower was only possible by sitting in the bath, and holding the shower head and pipe.

These things are not, in themselves, terrible, and the hotel is only listed as a three-star. However, paying £150 per night for it, I did expect a little more.

On the plus side, the staff are absolutely delightful. The gentleman who checked us in, and the gentleman who manned the front desk on Saturday were both charming, polite and very helpful indeed. The downstairs of the hotel is, frankly, beautiful. A lovely place to spend some time, and the breakfast was good too. We also had some time to kill before our taxi arrived, and they were happy for us to sit and wait, having let us leave our bags all day.

Location-wise, I knew what to expect from the map - it's a 15-minute walk to the main square, but it's a very nice walk past the quiet canal and along the picturesque streets - so I don't find that to be an issue at all.

In summary, I would really like to have given this place 3.5/5 - I think that the price and reviews on Trip Advisor, when matched against the standard of the room, are slightly skewed. If I go back to Bruges, I would definitely consider staying here again, but not in that room.

Room Tip: Room 41, a canal view, is not worth it.
