This is a great hotel for anyone wanting to spend time in Brugge.Its location is only a short walk away from the main centre and the service is here second to none. Unlike other hotels we have stayed in ,this hotel got it right from the start.We were greeted by a receptionist who was genuinely helpful and welcoming.She gave us a map and listed all the places to go and see and those to avoid to avoid being ripped off by overcharging restaurants.
In the past when we have booked a tripple room in different hotels we have been greeted with a cramped room made up for 3 by throwing a small bed in a corner .This is normally accompanied by having to go back to reception to get extra towels and cups etc as this was overlooked .This hotel got it right first time ,3 of everything and a decent sized room .The room was very comfortable and homely, the tv (if you really needed to watch it) had channels in english but luckily none of those drab news channels that hotels think are so important.
The room maids were very good ,our room and bathroom were always kept very clean.
I can fully recommend the breakfast ,I enjoy the meat and cheeses continental hotels offer but besides this a cooked breakfast was available along with serials and juices.
In the afternoon between 4 and 6 o clock there is a happy hour in the bar which made drinking in the hotel cheaper than going out .A pint of Jupiler was 2.50E and kriek beer was 1.50E which in my view represents excellent value.The bar itself was very inviting and comfortable.
The hotel is a short walk to the centre of town which had a christmas market and ice rink in the main squares .The old buildings are lit up at night offering a nostalgic feeling as you stroll along the waters edge.There are some great resturants which cater for all tastes and budgets,our hotel receptionist advised which ones not to go to ,thus avoiding being ripped off by hidden charges.I was surprised to see many shops open on christmas day ,along with snack bars and even the bus service running.
Despite the best efforts of the miserable weather we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Flanders and would we be going back in the future.If you want to get away from that corporate feel that bigger hotel chains offer then this the Flanders is the one for you ,more home from home and excellent service.
