I have just come back from a one night stay at Hotel de Tuilerieen and wish had stayed longer. The reception staff on arrival couldn't have been more helpful pointing out tourist spots. I had been in contact with the hotel in advance asking for an upgrade and was given the choice of a canal view room / 4 poster bed room for an additional €25. I chose the 4 poster bed room and it was well worth it. The room was of a good size, clean and tastefully decorated. It had everything we needed (ironing facilities, bath robes, huge comfy bed) and still a lovely view of the terrace. The bathroom was large, modern and had a separate bath and shower.
This hotel is situated perfectly for a stay in Bruges as it is around the corner from the main sqaure and right on the pituresque canal.
The pool was indeed small, but having researched the hotel this is made clear from photos / reviews so was far from disappointed. The spa area is small but lovely and had relaxing music playing to unwind after a day sight-seeing.
We didn't eat at the hotel (we were quite shocked when two jack daniels and cokes came to €36 - but we should have checked the prices), but the restaurant looked nice at night when we walked past. The cosy bar area by the fire was another perk.
I would highly recommend this hotel. Only disappointment of the trip was the Chocolate Story Tour (maybe with kids it would be more enjoyable, but if your limited on time have a brewery tour, rent some bikes or go by horse and carriage).
