Stayed at hotel central recently. Location is brilliant, and for that reason have given an average rating. We upgraded to room 9 with view over the square, so was expecting something fairly decent. What a disappointment, the decor was dark and dreary, and not particularly clean. There was no kettle or tea and coffee making facilities in the room and most of the electric plug sockets were broken! only two were working, one next to bed and another in the bathroom. Breakfast was very poor, a continental job on the cheap, no fruit or decent cereal. We were not asked once by staff if we were happy with our accommodation or needed anything, so never felt particularly cared about. Would definately not recommend this hotel to anyone.

We've always eaten at The Central since 2001 and never been disappointed. Friendly and attentive staff, great atmosphere -- Serge made us feel at home and was very welcoming last night and to-day.

We ended up lunching here as it had proved tricky to find something quick, light and economic in Bruges. We wanted to sit outside but not eat too much, nor spend a fortune.

In the end the food was ok but the service was brusque and amateurish. For both started and main in the economy lunch (€14) we were handed the wrong dishes. Most laughable of all was that bed-and-breakfast-style mustard and ketchup appeared on the bill at €1 each. This kind of charmless cynicism sums up the experience.

We have eaten here twice now bit not stayed at the hotel. The first time we visited this restaurant was in August 2013 we sat outside in the sunshine and ordered the Kwak to drink, some of us had pizzas and some of us had pasta, the food was great, just what you'd expect for the price at a city centre restaurant, the second time was in December 2013 we sat inside and it was warm and welcoming the food again was very good. The waiter was what really made this place for us we had the same one both times. He really made us feel welcome had a little laugh and joke with us and spoke perfect English. After we tipped him we were presented with a gratis festive drink. :-) you get what you pay for here. Will be back again next time were in Bruges.

We stayed for 2 nights and yes the rooms are really basics but confortable. The staff are very friendly and always had the time to chat with us. We had lunch and found the food nice and good price. We really enjoyed to be seating next to open fire.
Overhall, good location and easy to be in and out which it is a bonus if you haven't much time.
If we ever go back to Brugges, we would stay at the Central again.
Also would take the opportunity to Thank you all the staff for the kindless.
