“Lovely weekend in Bruges....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights with my girlfriend in July. It was a great location walking distance to everything. The owners have recently refurbished the place and it's stunning. We stayed in the Plum suite which was lovely, the bathroom had a great view of the church which looks amazing all lit up at night. The breakfasts were great, loads of choice. We are both vegetarian which wasn't a problem. Everything freshly cooked/prepared and beautifully presented. Finally, the hosts Jason and Sandra were great, nothing was too much trouble, they made us feel really welcome. Lots of help in suggesting places to visit and eat etc. We had a really great weekend here, would definitely stay at the Townhouse next time we're in Bruges, and have recommended it to a number of friends.

We spent a delightful long weekend in Bruges. The Townhouse is a lovely place to stay in a handy location with charming, friendly and helpful hosts in Jason and Sandra.
We booked two rooms as we travelled with elderly parents. We just missed out on the family room (we have two kids) but when I called Jason nothing was too much trouble and he organised a blow up bed for the children. They loved it and the double room was more than big enough to accommodate us all. The location is also great as it is just separate from the hustle and bustle but within a short walk of everything you want to see and do in Bruges. This was perfect for our parents as they were able to nip back to the B&B for a rest if the shopping or sightseeing or chocolate sampling got too much. Breakfasts were tasty, generous and stylishly served and restaurant recommendations were very helpful.
I would highly recommend the Townhouse and our hosts to anyone thinking of spending some time in Bruges.

We stayed in this B&B for two nights in October and were very impressed all round. We stayed in the Vanilla Suite, which was beautifully decorated and had a fantastic bathroom including a large bath and seperate walk in shower. The bed was massive and very nicely made up although my personal preference is for a firmer mattress.

The owners Jason and Sandra were excellent hosts - both helpful, warm and welcoming.

The three course breakfast was delicious and of a very high standard.

This is one of, if not the best B&B we have ever stayed in.

Thank you Jason and Sandra for a lovely stay!

I don't usually write a review but I thought if I don't write one this time, it would be injustice to the excellent service we received when we stayed at The Townhouse in August.
We booked the family suite and it felt like staying at 5 star hotel. Our 7 year old daughter loved it as she had her separate room, TV and DVD player with DVDs.
We travel a lot through Europe and we always stay at hotels but this time we wanted to try B&Bs and I can honestly tell you that staying at The Townhouse have changed our habit.
The owners were so welcoming; it felt like we were visiting close friends or relatives. Really enjoyed our stay. 10 out of 10.

Very spacious, well decorated and superbly equipped rooms, some with lovely views. We stayed in an excellent family room. Great breakfasts and the owners are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the city. They are about 5-7 mins walk from the market square. We enjoyed our stay there very much. Although I think we have seen a lot of the town so may not go back to it, if we did we would definitely stay there again.

great place to stay , 'high end bedrooms' , huge bed, large walk in shower and a bath with a view of the town !

Breakfast, 3 courses if you want and freshly squeezed orange juice with as much coffee and tea as you require [all from 9-10 ]

Very friendly couple running it and allowed us plenty of space , keycode for outside door and room so can come and go when you want .

We liked this place a lot and couldnt fault it . Johnny & Liz

Room Tip: We were in the ' Plum' room

Where do I start, such a lovely place to stay and explore the wonderful Brugges. Everything about the Townhouse oozes class, from the first hello on arrival to the lovely clean enviroment within. Our bedroom up in the attic was large roomy and modern, and as for the bed itself wow, i`ll defy anybody not to have a decent nights sleep in it. Jason and Sandra have certainly come up with a gem here, tastefully decorated throughout, money well spent. As for the breakfast, those bacon and eggs Belgian style are superb, well done Sandra. Nothing was too much trouble for mine hosts, even in bringing our luggage up to the attic bedroom. Don`t change anything folks because you have a gem of a place here, would recommend to anyone who wishes to know where to stay in Brugges.
