“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2011

Great location, fantastic lounge area. Rooms a tad tired and bed hard. We had a toilet issue, ie it wont flush, reception advised that it might be repaired the next day but was told that if the problem persisted we could not change to another room as they were fully booked. We had the impression that it was 'like it or lump it' attitude from the reception staff. Very not impressed with service, although Glen is a very nice man and helpful. Overall not exactly value for the amount charged and wouldn't return.

From the minute we arrived the staff were helpful. The hotel has a great location and was a delight to stay in. The room we had was pretty. The lounge and dining room however were breathtaking. Take afternoon tea in the latter, curl up with a book in the former.... It was a wonderful place.

There are many things that make Hotel de Orangerie a great place to stay:

It's fab location - right on the central hotel, 3 mins walk away from the main square
Its friendly & helpful staff - attentive and very knowledgeable, we were well cared for from the moment we stepped in to the moment we left.
It's cute rooms - #215 wasn't very big, and didn't have a view over the canal, but it was full of character & charm, had a very comfortable bed, had everything we needed in the way of modern conveniences, and some lovely Hermés toiletries.
It's beautiful decor - the style and attention to detail is a joy to behold, especially when the afternoon sun floods into the lounge room, or the shadows dance and mirrors twinkle in the evening candle light.

Hotel de Orangerie gets a firm 5/5 from me. I hope you enjoy your stay there as much as I did.

Stayed there with my husband and loved the canal facing room we had. Hotel is on a quiet lane yet close to all the main sights of Bruges, shops and restaurants. Lovely, cozy bar and breakfast room. Our package included a nice 5 course dinner at a restaurant close by which was really delicious as well. All in all great value for money.

Room Tip: Room 112 is lovely.

I stayed with my wife at the Junior suite canal view, celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary.
Room was romantic and unique. Service was excellent and breakfast was heaven.
The location of the hotel is very good.

Hubby and I stayed here for a nice little weekend break - just one night in September. Beautiful little hotel. Greeted by an amazing consierge/porter who took our bags, parked the car, and told us all about the hotel, its history and so on. Reception staff were excellent. We had a room upgrade and free champers as it was DH's birthday which was unexpected. The room was comfortable, filled with lovely antique furniture and quite large. The bed was a super king size and very snuggly. We did not do breakfast, as we were too full from the night before! But hotel very accomodating and brought coffee up to our room. Late check out was most appreciated. The hotel is in a fantastic location, just off the main square and very handy for shopping and site seeing. Nice little touches throughout the hotel and such a friendly welcome mean we will be back!
