Our recent stay at the Ter Duinen was very comfortable. After spending the morning in Brussels and taking a train to Bruges, we were dead tired from our overseas flight and delirious from lack of sleep. Here I will heartily recommend taking the frequent bus from the train station to the hotel, the stop is just steps away. Feeling ambitious, my wife and I instead elected to walk it with our baggage in tow. We pack light, but by the end we were dragging considerably and just wanted to sleep. The hotel itself is quite a distance from the city centre; I would not recommend it to those with mobility issues. That being said, there were not many other negatives to this splendid property. The positive spin on the location is it did allow us to be away from the tourist areas when we wanted to relax and commiserate with local folks, which is the part if it we liked.
The breakfast mentioned in prior reviews on TA we can say lived up to its reputation. Everything offered was freshly picked from the local market, and the selection of cheeses and charcuterie were interesting and of high quality. The dining room is quite upscale and we felt like honored guests. The room was small, but very recently renovated and the bathroom was modern and clean. My wife, who is notorious for her picky taste in bed and sheet comfort (think "Princess and the Pea" here), slept soundly and liked the bed. The hotel staff was more than helpful with their recommendations, (a major find was the excellent "Restaurant Oud Handbogenhof," very close by) and supplied us with a handy map, jotting down the locations as we spoke; we were also given a discount card for Bruges, which saved us a few dollars when visiting the museums and the canal boat trip.
