After many hours searching online for a suitable hotel to compliment our stay in Bruges I came across the fabulous Goezput website. Beautiful pictures of 'tasteful arty' rooms, wonderful reviews on their website. Sadly the reality was for me one of great contrast. After a harrowing journey, most of which spent lost along the cobbled streets due to roadworks close to the hotel, which we had not been notified of, we reached the place at 2pm to an uncleaned room!
On reaching our room we were saddened by its unclean, cramped feel and the makeshift boxlike bathroom structure incongruously built next to the bed! The 'bathroom' or box was poorly ventilated, mouldy, smelly, and afforded very little privacy to its occupant! We were greeted by a used elastoplast on the floor!
There were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, surely a basic requirement for even low budget accommodation in this day and age! The room had no internal locking system and we were rudely walked in on by noisy cleaners whilst trying to rest.
I would certainly not call this a family friendly establishment as we were kept awake by rowdy people in the hotel bar until a very late hour. The final affront being that our much needed lie in was completely destroyed by noisy builders in the adjacent property.
I was utterly disappointed by the poor standard of the hotel, I have stayed in more luxurious hostels and it grieves me to say that a travel lodge would have been preferable. We tried to give feedback to the hotel but they would not publish this honest review on their website!!
