Perfect for your stay in Brugges

Very clean and comfortable hotel. Rooms were decent size (for a European hotel) and had everything we needed. Easy to find and plenty of parking. We were able to walk (about 20 minutes) to Brugges City Center thus never had to worry about finding parking, etc. We had a delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. This place was a great value and in a great location.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If a 20 minute walk to or from the City is too much for you, the hotel offers taxi tickets at a very reasonable rate. There are several grocery stores within a 5 minute walk to pick up wine, breakfast foods, snacks, etc.

at first, we got lost. we cant

at first, we got lost. we cant find the hotel. and we came on holiday so their are no people around to ask. and some people don't know the hotel. but when you find the hotel, the hotel itself is so beautiful. theres a farm, play grounds and gardens around it, it will relax you. people bikes around it. the facilities are great, they have a gym and sauna for free use, but the downside is, their is no tv in the room. but im ok with it, because wifi internet is accessible to the room.

Excellent Hotel! Although this hotel is a bit out of the heart of Brugge, they offer a taxi service from the hotel to the city centre for just 7Euro, which was very easy and affordable. Comfy beds, clean hotel, and great Tapas bar!

This hotel is outside the Bruges

This hotel is outside the Bruges ringroad and is thus not very convenient as public transport isnt that quick to the centre.It is situated by an industrial estate and so apart from the hotel there is very little else.No pubs restaurants etc. breakfast isnt included and at €17.50 is way overpriced parking is another €9.I wouldnt use this hotel again as there are many more closer to the centre of Bruges.

A bit remote but whyen driving

A bit remote but whyen driving the car up to a place called De Ezelspoort where a Parking of GB Supermarket is it is only 600 meters walking to the heart of town. Breakfast is good but when it is too busy things run out and are not replaced in time as the waiting staff hardly ever checks the supplies. This has to be done by the cooks which does not work too well. Ckeck in staff is very friendly and helpfull. I would stay here again.

DON'T STAY HERE

This hotels is so far from the center of Bruges that it is impossible to walk downtown, even though they post that it is .3km from centro. It is a 10E taxi ride, or a 20 minutes walk to the closest bus stop. If you want a double bed, it is 'an upgrade for 15E + taxes, so figure 20E, just for that. Even tough it is fairly new, there is NO insulation between room or floors. Everything in rooms around, and especially above, can be heard, especially with no carpet. Everytime someones moves a chair, or walks, you will awake. Also breakfast is 17E + taxes again, so figure 20E, which is not worth it. This place is at best a 2* hotel, instead of a 4*, like they post. Don't stay here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pas un quatre étoiles.

Bon accueil mais nous avons eut une chambre de très mauvaise qualité pour la première nuit. Nous étions trois dans une minuscule chambre avec de la poussière partout, des moisissures aux fenêtres des interrupteurs sales un mini bar inexistant et qui e fonctionnait pas. Et j en passe. Je me suis plaint dés le lendemain matin. Une heure après on nous a mis dans une suite propre avec une bouteille de vin offerte . Cette chambre était bien mieux. Il semble qu ils commencent a faire des travaux. Le Spa et propre et bien aménagé.

La première impression n'est pas

La première impression n'est pas très bonne lorsqu'on découvre l'hôtel, surtout quand on a vu les photos de nuit aupravant. On trouve un hôtel avec une facade plutôt laide qui ne donne pas envie d'y rentrer. En revanche l'intérieur est plutôt classe, on oublie vite notre première impression. Adresse a recommander ! assez bien placé (proche parking de la gare) puis découverte de la ville à pied (15mn du centre)
