My wife and I visited Brugge from the 2nd to the 4th of January for our first wedding anniversary. We stayed in the honeymoon suite at the Ter Reien and, as such, my comments really only apply to this room. We do not have a lot of experience staying in hotels but of all the places we have stayed in (none of which I would say were bad) the Ter Reien was the best! Our room was great; we had enough room for everything we needed, it was clean, it was warm, the view spectacular and the bed comfy. The television was not the centre-piece of the room which was a nice as we didn't travel all the way from New South Wales to watch tv. We had a nice bathroom attached to our room with a shower, sink, toilet and actual soap, not that weird bodywash/shampoo lotion that is seems prevalent around the place.
Oh and the view! We were right on the canal; our window opened to reveal a little fence which made us feel like we were on a balcony. If it had of been summer I would have been sorely tempted to jump into the canal. We just put our photos of the trip on our computer and I think that half of them would be of the canal, the ducks and the buildings all seen from our room.
The staff were very nice, especially the lady behind the desk who checked us in. She pointed us in the direction (and gave us some names) of good restaurants for our anniversary dinner and seemed genuinely pleased for us that it was our anniversary. After not following her directions we ate at a dodgy place in the market so the next day she called some nice places to try and book us a place for our anniversary dinner take two.
We enjoyed the breakfast very much; I was particularly fond of the pastries and that breakfast was included in the room price.
Overall we would recommend the Ter Reien and their honeymoon suite to everyone who we like. We had a wonderful time in Brugge made all the more wonderful for our stay at the Ter Reien.
