We booked the NH Brugge (through a deal with Eurostar) after being recommended by my parents who adore the place and its fantastic pool. Arriving by train, this hotel proved to be in an ideal location, both quick and easy to get to from the station (it took approximately 10-15 minutes). The hotel is also just a short walk from the Markt and is located on 't Zand square, another great place for restaurants and its Saturday flea market.
The hotel was charming and upon our arrival, we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who couldn't be more helpful. She also provided maps and brochures upon hearing it was our first time in Brugge. The hotel itself is charmingly quaint and has a fairly oldy worldy feel to it with suits of armour in the foyer and beautiful fireplaces. We upgraded to a deluxe room as it was my bithday and were not disappointed- our room was large, with the most comfortable (and HUGE) bed i have slept in in a very long time. Bathroom was spotlessly clean and the shower had a fair bit of strength on it.
Two other points worth mentioning regarding this place. First off was the Sunday late check out at 5pm. We were delighted at not having to rush off by 11am! Secondly, the sheer politeness and courtesy of the staff and services of the hotel. We were in no hurry over the weekend and enjoyed a very late lie-in on the Saturday after popping our "do not disturb sign" onto the door. Rather than knock and disturb, the staff called to say that when we were ready to have our rooms serviced, just let them know so that they could ensure it was done before our return that evening. After staying in hotels where, regardless of the door sign, the maids still come in after a certain hour, this small gesture was rather touching.
Overall, it was a fantastic trip-despite the terrible weather- and this beautiful hotel played a great part in that!
