“Check in with a SMILE....”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

Hotel Princess is well located.It is a 12 minute walk to the station.1 minute from the promenade, and 10 minutes to most attractions,shops,bars etc.
The check in,(so important to us) was very welcoming, and so a good feeling prevailed from the outset.
The room was adequate, and although a little soulless,it was roomy, and we also had a balcony.
Two other good points. Firstly, Griet,the lady on reception was wonderful, always helpful, and always cheerful. Secondly, the breakfast was very good, with all the usual fayre such as fruit juice,jams,croissants,cereals,ham and cheese,but also had scrambled and boiled eggs, bacon etc etc.
All in all very good value as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a family room on the front with balcony.You only have a lateral sea view, but they are quite...

Had short family visit, hotel was very clean , really nice complementary breakfast, one of the best have had, the location was ideal for exploring the town, family room was fine , bit basic , but then its is only a 3 star , so did not expect more . Really polite receptionist on checking in .
Would stay again.

stayed here for 3 nights the hotel could not be in a better location right where you want to be
the staff we met were very efficient and friendly the rooms are adequate but with no air con they can be a bit warm at night
the breakfast room is a very nice room spacious and welcoming the breakfast itself was of a good standard with plenty of choice with something for everyone
parking is a problem in this area as all street parking is pay and display and finding a space is not easy we booked a space in the hotels car park they only have six spaces so book in advance you will be glad you did cost is 18 euros per day also brugge is only 15 minutes away by train and a good day trip this is a hotel I would recommend and would use again

lovely family run hotel. great breakfast. location good - practically on the seafront, not far from harbour/station/town/shops. 2 small single beds in my room rather than a double so could have slept better, but perfectly ok, and staff were so friendly and helpful. free wifi
I would stay again

Excellent hotel, very close to the beach and the main shopping street. Breakfast was really good with plenty of choice and the staff were very friendly and efficient. Bathroom was big and the shower was superb and easy to use. I agree that there should be tea/coffee making facilities in the room.

This is a lovely hotel in a great location right near the beach and the town centre. The added convenience of a pre booked parking space in the hotel car park was a real bonus, though it is very tight in there so please think twice if you drive anything bigger than a Focus/Megane sized car.
The room was adequate though we would have preferred tea/coffee making facilities or a small fridge to keep cold drinks in, it was a very hot weekend and we needed drinks during the night.
Breakfast was the usual buffet but done with great style and service, I could have stayed there all morning it was so fresh and delicious.
The daytime receptionist was very efficient and friendly, he went out of his way to help me with parking etc. The same, unfortunately can't be said for the man on night duty. We arrived back at the hotel at 1125pm, our son went straight up to the room whilst we went into the bar for a nightcap. After 10 minutes I went to find someone to serve us. He had seen us walk in and go into the bar but seemed really put out when I asked if we could get a drink saying "but we close at 12"........we were the for all of 10 minutes with our final drink of the night. I know the nightshift can be boring and quiet but simply a smile or acknowledgement of us would have been so much easier than me having to mention it on Tripadvisor. A shame but still doesn't detract from a great weekend in a lovely hotel so, I still give it 5 stars.
Would we book again? Definately!
