not to be told off for being spontaneous - we decided whilst in Arras to nip to Bruges on the way back to London.
A couple of hotels frowned upon us for not having booked in advance for a Saturday night stay.
Not Rik. Although no room at his inn - The Adornes - Lovely location and building by the way - Rik told us he knew a man that could put us up in a fabulous house.
We said Yes! to what we thought could be gamble but also a potential adventure.
Rik stepped off the front desk and asked us to follow him down the road - he took off at a run and bemused, we pursued in the car to an underground car park.
We then trotted down the road on foot to a marvellous Belgian Pub/Bistro t'Gezelleke - Busy and buzzy in there - to meet the owner and collect the key to our accommodation.
Johannes took us to his B&B - 2 minutes walk away.
Newly renovated. Charming.
Everything you need.
Sleeps 4. 150 Euro. Breakfast on request.
We ate at t'Gezelleke - great menu - we opted for boeuf bourguignon - Fantastic
You must try the Prior beer there too.
Go to De Garre for another beer - another Rik Recommendation.
Thank you Rik and Johannes.
