Originally we were due to stay in one of the sister hotels in this group, but after momentary trepedation about what we would end up in, this hotel was an absolute delight. I believe it's rated as 4 star, but I think it's better than that. So to specifics:
Lobby: Grand, resplendant
Rooms: Compact, but not too bijou (will only make sense to Fry and Laurie fans)
Breakfast: A real fill your boots extravaganza. Very good quality, plenty of it, and the service is absolutely superb.
Bar: Good selection of post tourism tipples, and reasonably priced.
Location: You just couldn't beat it. 5 mins walk to the Belfry; Basilica of the Holy Blood.
Top tip for anyone wanting to take a canal trip. Take a left out of the hotel to the first square, then take another left, and walk under the arch to the left of the town hall. About 50 yards more and you're at the canal. The tour group that operates from this point was superb. Our guide was fluent in German, Flemish, English, Spanish, and he had a real dry sense of humour, which was really cool.
Bruges is beautiful, and this hotel made it even more so.
