“Beautiful Bonifacius – perfection at its best!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

The most charming place that we have stayed in a very long time. My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and chose to stay in Guesthouse Bonifacius as we wanted a more authentic and less commercial experience of Bruges - we definitely made the right choice. Guesthouse Bonifacius is perfect in every way, from the moment you arrive and are personally greeted by Lyne, the most attentive and welcoming host. The rooms are beautiful (it would not matter which room you stayed in, they are all stunning), the location is amazing, close to the centre, steps away from the Groeninge Museum and Church of Our Lady, yet tucked away down a quiet side street so very peaceful. Breakfast is an event in itself, the table charmingly laid and fresh fruit, warm croissants, cheese and hams, all served individually, followed by a cooked breakfast any way you wish - the attention to detail is exquisite – and all this whilst overlooking the picturesque Bonifacius bridge and the canal – complete relaxation. Lyne is such a wonderful host, nothing is too much trouble and her recommendations for dinner and places to visit were faultless. We honestly would not stay anywhere else in Bruges.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful!

We feel so very fortunate to have found this small guesthouse for our three-night stay in Bruges and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful, historic, perfectly situated and relaxing place to stay. The property is incredible, dating back to the 16th century and retaining that charm while being luxuriously outfitted with modern conveniences. The view from the breakfast room as well as the room we stayed in, the Clair Obscur, are directly onto the canal, next to the most beautiful little bridge in the city, the Bonifacius.

The proprietor, Lyne, goes way above and beyond in terms of making you feel at home. Breakfast is served at whatever time you choose, which is very accommodating and convenient. The first morning, we feasted on the lovely homemade pastries, cheese and charcuterie and felt fortified for the day. THEN Lyne asked us how we wanted our eggs prepared. We never needed lunch the entire stay. And the breakfast was delicious. Tea and coffee are available in the breakfast room at any time of day, and the refrigerator in each room is stocked with complimentary beverages.

The location really could not be any better. Bruges can feel overrun with tourists, and the Bonifacius is down a quiet street, yet within very easy walking distance to anything in the central city. You're directly across from the Church of Our Lady, situated right between the Groeninge Museum and the Memling, next to the most picturesque bridge in the city, and maybe a five-minute walk away from Burg Square and the Belfry. The gates to the grounds of Our Lady church are locked at night, which makes the location even quieter. Mind you, you will have constant canal cruises going by and a parade of tourists crossing the bridge during the day, but there is no way to completely escape the Bruges crowds. At night, though, you have the place all to yourself (although some swans seemed to have a rather wild party right outside our room one night, but that was kind of charming—we didn't hear a sound the other two nights)!

Our room was wonderful. It was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom was fantastic (great shower, double sink, nice tub) and it was just a delightful place to stay.

We really loved our time here and hope to return to Bruges and stay at the Bonifacius again. Lyne was absolutely wonderful—the ideal host.

Room Tip: The Clair Obscur is the largest room in the guesthouse and is directly on the canal. It's quite...

My wife and I stayed at the Guesthouse the weekend before Christmas and we simply cannot fault our stay. Our host, Lyne, simply could not do enough to accommodate us and to ensure that our stay was as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
The Guesthouse itself is beautiful, extremely homely and comfortable. The location is perfect as it is very close to the town centre but is in a very quiet area.
Breakfast was wonderful each day and Lyne could not do enough to ensure that we had all the food and drink we needed and more.
We will certainly be returning to Bruges and, without any doubt, the Guesthouse is where we will stay upon our return. Many thanks Lyne for making our pre-Christmas get-away even more perfect than we hoped for.

Our two night stay at Guesthouse Bonifacius in late November was absolutely perfect. Lyne is a wonderful host, she is welcoming and attentive - nothing was too much trouble. The guesthouse is located in a period property overlooking the canal, it is beautifully decorated and the breakfast room has a lovely view of the canal, Bonifacius bridge, and the Church of Our Lady. We stayed in the well appointed Guinevere suite (decorated with the Ralph Lauren Guinevere fabric hence the name), which had a four poster bed and immaculate bathroom with large walk-in shower separate jacuzzi bath, fluffy robes and complimentary toiletries. The room is street side but is located on a very quiet street so noise was not an issue. Each room also has a complimentary mini bar containing bottled water, soft drinks and beer. We were particularly impressed with breakfast (Lyne will serve breakfast at whatever time you would like) because we were expecting a standard B&B continental breakfast. Not at Bonifacius! A delicious fresh fruit platter, fresh warm bread and pasteries, cheese, meats, fresh juice, endless tea and coffee, and eggs any style made to order. It was a perfect start to a day of sightseeing. Finally, the location of the Guesthouse is perfect, less than a 10 minute walk from all of the main sights. A perfect guesthouse, we will definitely return.

We travelled to Bruges for our Silver wedding and were thrilled to find such a gem as Bonifacius. Lyn is an excellent host and great with advice about where to visit and shop in Bruges, even gave us a map so that we could follow up on her suggestions. Will definitely return, loved the uniqueness of the place and to have swans swimming last whilst we were having breakfast was an extra bonus

Guesthouse doesn't really explain this wonderful accommodation. It's more like a one-off hotel with an exceptional focus on customer service and individually designed rooms. We didn't really want to share our experience of this gem of a place - but then thought about the owner and just how brilliant she is and decided to share! Just when you think it can't be improved the breakfast is a morning banquet and really tingles the tastebuds and sets you up for the exciting morning ahead discovering Bruges.

Room Tip: This is more like a Landmark home each bedroom has an individual quality and style - if you would li...
