We picked this hotel for an overnight stay after an overnight mini cruise from Hull. Excellent choice of hotel. Most drop off points are near the station - so cross the main road and head towards the lake. The location is very near the 'lake of love' and the brewery. We were able to leave our luggage in a secure storage area before we checked in and when we had checked out.
Its a short walk into the centre of town - past many, many chocolate shops. There are some very nice resturants and bars near the hotel - we ate in the Vivaldi resturant nearly opposite the hotel - and drank next door at the very little bar with a big beer selection. The bar in the hotel was reasonably priced too.
The room was large, comfortable - with good lighting and heating - we had a view over a lovely old courtyard and surrounded by small houses (when you leave the hotel turn left and left again to see it).
Bruges is not cheap - but it is a beautiful city with lots to see or do - ideally two nights would have been better - we only had one -and wished we had booked two.
I would highly recommend this hotel. There is a fitness centre but we did not use it - it was so much nicer to walk round outside - you can walk round the city canal - past all the windmills - very safe and beautiful
