Canal House
Ranked #172 of 232 Bruges B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 April 2013

My partner and I spent 2 nights here.

Pros: Breakfast was lovely, owner was friendly and helpful.

Cons:
- We got given the split level room, which we were not informed of. The shower was on the top floor, the toilet was on the same floor as the bed. Please ensure you ask which room you will be getting, as I wasn't expecting this. If someone isn't comfortable with heights or want it to be an easier ride, people need to know.
- No ventilation in the toilet, it is a cupboard and if you are a bit tall man, your legs won't fit inside.
- Bed sunk in the middle and uncomfortable.
- The bed covers were a little dirty and it was clear that these are not changed regularly, just the sheets that cover the bed.
- Not a place you would come back to to chill out for a while.

Despite the fact that the owner is very nice, it was a bit dissapointing really. I would pay a little more and stay somewhere else if I can next time. The pictures are also a little misleading.

Room Tip: Specifiy when booked and ask for clarification on the one you are staying in .

We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were great, the breakfast was as good as we've had anywhere and the location was perfect, just outside the hectic areas but a short walk to everything. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Regular rooms up top are a steep climb and smaller. The Superior Room is on the ground floor and has...

My partner and I stayed in Canal House for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a double room which was situated in the converted loft.

The room was lovely and well decorated. It had a nice modern decor to it and a lovely view of the canal. As the room was in the loft it had an odd layout which meant that the bathroom was split. The toilet was in a small room near the bed and the shower and sink were up a ladder on the mezzanine. This ladder was quite steep and could be difficult to get up for some people. The same can be said for the stairs up to the room. This wasn't an issue for myself but it may be an issue for older couples.

The couple running the B&B were lovely and very helpful. The B&B is in a great location as well.
