“Heatwave”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Cheekily popped in to escape searing heat and grab something to eat. Just like to say thank you to the wonderful restaurant manageress who provided us with immaculate service and fantastic food and kept her cool at all times, you're a star.

Great location, beautiful old hotel, room was clean, beds comfortable. Nice turn down service with chocolate. They had scheduled a complimentary 2 hour walking tour. That was wonderful!

Didn't chose breakfast due to it being pricey-really cute and good restaurants near by (we liked Gingerbread tea house). The dining room was gorgeous though. Car park was quick and no big deal. Nice to have free wi-fi

The walls are quite thin-we could hear the people in the room next to us talking-luckily they were speaking in a language we didn't understand :)

Would definitely stay here again

Room was a delight, although my wife said she needed better light to put on makeup. Great location and lovely afternoon tea. We'll be back. We've already booked for next year. Heidi and Mitee, as usual were perfect hostesses

Initially it was a disappointment that our room didn't have a canal view or any view at all. The hotel was packed due to a holiday weekend and so changing rooms was not an option.It was easy to overcome this due to the quality of the hotel. It is in a great location, on a side street, on a canal but close to the market place. I would recommend this hotel to travelers because it is a comfortable , clean and a well appointed but small hotel. The breakfast was quite good and was included in our rate. Bruges is a lovely city, and one that you don't want to miss if you are able to get there. It is about two hours ( in traffic) from Brussels Airport.

Room Tip: Ask for a canal view. Avoid 123 which is downstairs and try to get a room above ground floor.

Me and my now fiancé (as I proposed during this trip!) had an absolutely wonderful time here at the hotel. Everything was very well presented, clean and the staff were very helpful and very nice. Great, central location too for shopping and restaurants etc. it's a shame we never got to experience the canal trips run from the back of the hotel, maybe when we come back next time though when it's sunnier.

The hotel is beautiful. It's also perfectly located. Not directly on the main street. In walking distance of almost everything in Bruge. The buffet breakfast is delicious..lox, eggs, etc. It's right on the canal. There are a few tables you can sit at outside - you have to go downstairs through a low "tunnel", extremely romantic, to get to the canal side. One night we wanted to sit outside and it was late but we found someone to open the door to get out and who also brought us some night caps; amaretto, sambucca, and also thought to bring out a wonderful plate of pastries. So very romantic. The rooms are beautiful with a beautiful marble bathroom

The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast (champagne included) was one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had. The beds are comfortable and the room relaxing and well furnished. The fridge was a little noisy but this was a minor irritation. The hotel itself was quiet and the location superb. This was our third visit to this hotel and we will be returning!

Room Tip: Book early!
