My wife and I chose the Adornes based on other reviews and we weren't sorry. It's a fantastic little 20-room inn on the north side of the city, an easy 5-10 minute walk from the center of town. The staff at the Adornes were extremely helpful, spoke English (which was excellent, because my Dutch could barely get us a cup of coffee), gave us coupons for different events in town and offered excellent recommendations for food.
The room was cozy. We stayed on the top floor facing a side street and had a beautiful view. The bed was more comfortable than your average european hotel. Breakfast was delicious with a variety of drinks (juice, water, tea, coffee) breads, fruit and meat available. There's a charming courtyard in the back with bikes available as well as parking (we did not drive). It is an easy cab from the train station if you're arriving, or a half-hour or so jaunt if you're walking (not recommended with bags on Brugge's cobblestone streets).
And while there is a dog of Brugge sitting watch over one of the canals, there's an even friendlier one at the hotel (a pet of one of the innkeepers). Being an ocean away from our dogs, he was a willing substitute and played fetch in the courtyard after breakfast every morning.
I can say that we enjoyed our time in Brugge and the Adornes, but it's truly a testament to the charm of a hotel when you're sad to leave it at the end of a stay. We look forward to our return.
