t'Geerwijn is a lovely old home in a quiet street just 5 minutes from the the center, tastefully furnished with antiques, books and old paintings. It felt like we were house guests. Our room was large, beautifully decorated, very comfortable. with an ensuite shower room. The breakfast was very good. When we return to Bruges we will book here.

I stayed here with my fiance for three days and we loved it! The home is on a side street from the main historic area (Markt) and was very convenient for sightseeing. We stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor with the A-shaped ceiling, and it was clean, well decorated, and very comfortable. The proprietor gave us great recommendations for restaurants (she did not lead us to tourist traps), and provided an amazing breakfast. We would definitely recommend this place to others!

One warning, it seems like many of the en suite bathrooms in Europe don't have full bathroom doors (they don't go floor to ceiling) so you should be 'comfortable' with your roommate. An alternative is to ask them to wait outside the room for a few minutes.

We spent three nights at the 't Geerwijn B&B and enjoyed our time there. It is located within easy walking distance to Bruges attractions. Hosts Chris and Hans made us feel welcome in their home; we especially enjoyed Han's great omelets and meeting other travelers over a substantial breakfast!

We booked two rooms and stayed for 3 nights with my parents who were on vacation from Western Australia.
I will rate as follows: Vgood, Good, Average, Improvement required.
Welcome - Vgood - warm & informative
Bedrooms - we had 2 top floor rooms- (Comfort) - VGOOD, (Design) - Average, smallish. Complimentary Tea and Coffee tray which was a bonus and unexpected in Europe. NB: ensuite not so very private partitioned off with a saloon style louver door.
Sitting Room - (Comfort) Vgood, relaxing, stylish, fresh flowers, and candle lit and accompanied by classical background music, complimentary glasses of port/sherry on offer.
Dining Room - (Comfort) Good, (Design) Improvement - Coffee pot in centre of table making accessibility a little awkward if the table is full of guests (8).
Breakfast - (Quality) VGood especially the omelette (Variety) VGood continental, fresh with home made yoghurt and jams.
Efficiency& Courteousness - VGood (Chris is fluent in 5 languages, informative and available when required without being obtrusive).
Cleanliness - VGood throughout.
Location- VGood 5 min walk to Main Square.
Parking - VGood - free parking 10 min walk away -as directed by Chris.

Overall we had a very pleasant stay and were pleased with our choice. However, I feel it worthy of mention if you are Cat Allergic there is a Cat in residence. Also there did not appear any form of air-conditioning, this may cause discomfort in the hotter months so may be worth asking Chris for solutions, as leaving the windows open would result in outside noise and Mosquitoes’ as we experienced.
We would have no hesitation in staying again.

't Geerwijn is a charming B&B, everything you imagine a B&B should be. Our room was a good size and very clean. We had our own shower and sink, but the the toilet was shared between three guestrooms, but never was an issue. The location was a close walk to everything, especially the main square. Breakfast was a delicious variety of pastries, toast, jams, eggs, yogurt, etc., perfect to start to the day. I highly recommend it!

Even better than expected (so I don't understand the people saying "don't believe the photo's"), because the rate is very (almost too) reasonable for a B&B with this location in the center. The first thing you notice is the cosy (authentic) living room, with fireplace, comfortable couches, tv, white and red port and other drinks for taking and purring cat. Very nice to come "home" to, for instance between sightseeing/shopping and diner. The breakfast is very nice and complete (eggs, meat, cheese, many different kinds of bread, orange juice, etc.) and the lady is very helpful with picking nice restaurants and avoiding the overly touristic ones. All and all I will definitly recommend this B&B to family and friends.
