When I first entered the lobby of the hotel I was a little put our it looked dated with the tub chairs with loose fitted covers over gangly plants. On entering the rest of the hotel was really surprised the decoration was quite boutique. With simple greys and neutral tones. Owner was very friendly and spoke perfect English as most do in Brugge (thank goodness as having been to three different countries we were getting our pleases and thankyou's a bit muddled) En suites were very nice with lovely toiletries, hairdryer and towels. Bed was quite comfortable but although we were in the back of the hotel were woken by some noisy german speaking people at 3.30am someone banged on the window and all was quiet again. The hotel also offers free wifi. When we went down to breakfast the dining room was very busy which amazed us as hadn't seen anyone else in the hotel. Breakfast was far the best of the three hotels we had recently stayed in on our travels through Europe, with a lovely fruit salad, lovely plain croissants and ones with chocolate. a good selection of cereals and lovely seeded or plain bread rolls. there was also toast and hard boiled eggs. tea, coffee, herbal teas or chocolate. The hotel is quite small and there is parking you have to pre book or there is parking across the road just don't have a top box to fit into either of the car park so we parked for free about 30 mins walk away. Brugge is a beautiful city with lots to do so we will be back and will stay at this hotel again. We did the chocolate tour and the Historian which was amazing and very well done. The owner also kept our bags in the lockup so we could explore the city further then my husband went to get the car and parked outside to load the cases in. There is a Christmas market with ice sculptures, ice skating and lots of stalls starting the end of november. Brugge is only 1 hour from Calais just pick your timings right for crossings and not on a friday during rush hour as the dreaded M25 is like a car park.
