My husband and I stayed here for part of our anniversary weekend and on our 1st visit to Bruges. The hotel is located by the side of a canal and within easy walking distance to the main squares and attractions of Bruges. It is full of character and has been thoughtfully furnished to go with the period of the property throughout. The staff were helpful and friendly. There is a small bar for drinks at night or teas/coffees during the day and a lovely breakfast room located down in what must have been the cellar. Breakfast was included and was good with the usual variety of food available, although no hot food, and unfortunately for me, no fruit. Our room was furnished in the style of the property but the bathroom had been refitted and was modern. Unfortunately, and I`d already read this from other reviews, although the bathroom is extremely modern, it only has a bath with a shower attachment, no shower, a little surprising since most travellers want showers in the morning and/or evening but we had to have baths instead. We were on the top floor so had terrific views over the rooftops and across Bruges.
The other downside to this hotel is that it doesnt have a lift and is on several different levels even on the ground floor so it would be no good for anyone with mobility issues, even the front entrance is up some steep stone steps. I couldnt see where there could be a room for anyone with a disability as there appeared to be no access into the hotel or any of the rooms other than by steps or stairs. However, despite this, we would stop here again and really enjoyed our stay.
