We had an amazing time in Bruges and it started with Kees and Kathleen at Speelmansrei. When we left, I felt like we were leaving friends. They were wonderful, genteel hosts and were so helpful with restaurant recommendations, sightseeing, bicycle rentals- they could answer any question we had. In addition, Kees mapped a walk for us that would familiarize us with the area. Since we arrived early on a Saturday, Kees recommended visiting the market- a brilliant idea as it was filled with interesting foods, flowers and animals! The location of the B and B was terrific, just about a 20 minute walk from the train station. It was so close to the Markt and the walk was lovely!! We did it every day, sometimes more than once, so it is a perfect location to get to all the sights. The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious, a terrific way to start the day! Kees made us scrambled eggs and bacon every day!! Our room was beautiful- bright,roomy, and spotless (and we had a canal view from the bathroom). The wi-fi worked perfectly which was crucial for our work. The bathroom was well-appointed with bright lighting and lovely toiletries! We could not have asked for a nicer, friendlier place to stay and I would love to go back one day!
