Needed a few days away so came up with the idea of revisiting Brugges with the family. Dover to Calais ferry and then an easy sat-nav guided drive to the hotel. The welcome was warm but the rooms weren't (until I turned the radiator on). The rooms were simple to put it mildly and the view of the street rather than the canal was pretty uninspiring for €200 per night. We did however get an adjoining room with a bunk bed for the kids so plenty of room for everyone. We set off to explore in the rain - spirits were low and my reputation for booking dodgy holidays was going to be reaffirmed. Was this really the place where I had such a good time in my early years? The turning point was the Habit restaurant. Great beer and food brightened the mood and we retired to the small bar back at the hotel for a game of cards.
Next day better weather and Brugges has come alive. A horse-drawn carriage trip, diamond museum, canal boat ride, sweet making, chocolate buying, modelrailway and a harp concert - my stock was going up. I reduced our booking to just two nights deciding to go for quality rather than
push my luck.
The hotel is fine, is in a good location near to the main squares and the breakfast is good. I just think it doesn't have enough if the weather is poor which is fine for a honeymooning couple but not for a family with young kids. The owner was kind enough to let us off the last night without holding out for payment. Will do the dolphins tomorrow and spend a night in France.
