There are plenty of good reviews of this hotel - and rightly so. It was spotlessly clean, the staff were very nice, the breakfast buffet had a great selection and it was only a short walk to the centre of town.
The let down for us was that we were in one of the rooms in the annex block (Room 210). I didn't mind the stairs but the room really lacked the 'wow' factor. The bathroom was tiny (as in it had a compact bath and everything felt like it had been crammed in). The furnishings were all clean and in good condition but completely souless - as if someone was trying to creat a 'Travelodge' feel in what was a still a nice period building in Bruges (we had beams in the ceiling - why then put a load of buiilt in laminate furniture into it?).
The room was also overlooking the street at the front - not a problem - but I became suspicious when I saw free earplugs on the bedside tables! Sure enough both Friday and Saturday night we had to put up with a bar opposite kicking out and what I can only describe as someone thinking it was fun to blow into a traffic cone at 3 am! Not the hotel's fault of course but still irritating.
We tried to change rooms when we first arrived but they were apparently fully booked. Whether we were given this annex room because we booked on a AA / Eurostar 'deal' I don't know. It was just a shame as the main hotel is lovely but the annex room is noisy, cramped and lacking in any character, yet apparently was the same 'standard' as all the other rooms. I suppose on paper it does as it has the same 'facilities' - but it felt like we had been cheated!
