Exclusive Guesthouse Bonifacius

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A beautiful trip was had in Brugge. Staying at the Guesthouse Bonifacius was pure luxury from the moment we arrived until the time that we left. We were greeted by the owner, Lynn, who couldn’t do enough to make us feel welcome. The room itself with its fantastic views of the canal, along with the public areas and roof terrace were decorated splendidly and were immaculate. Every detail was thought of and done to perfection! The mini bar, which was included, was restocked daily, and the breakfast was exquisite. I cannot recommend this hidden gem enough, and I will certainly be revisiting!

This must be the best place to stay in Bruges. Our room was beautiful; the breakfast was great; we ate oysters on the roof terrace in sunshine; tourists on boat trips even take photographs of guests sitting in the windows! The guesthouse is opposite a Michelin star restaurant (Den Harynck) and is only a stone's throw from all the historic sights of Bruges. Thoroughly recommended.

Wow, where do we start. From the time I made the reservation, the experience was outstanding. Lyne (the owner) is very friendly and easy to work with. We stayed in the large top floor suite that is not shown on their website. Steep, narrow staircase so not for everyone but we loved it. Canal view from a small window in the living area. The large suite is furnished in a modern style while the rest of the rooms are furnished more antique. The building is a charming renovated 16th century building on a canal. Picturesque, romantic, and wonderful location. This inn is one of the most photographed buildings in all of Bruges. You will be staying where EVERYONE who passes by wishes they were staying! Over-the-top breakfast cooked to order and served in the cozy breakfast room while you gaze out the leaded glass windows complete with old world hardware. Hands down the best place you can stay in Bruges! Thank you Lyne for a wonderful 3 night stay.

Absolutely charming place that takes you back to another time, a peaceful retreat away from the peak season tourist mayhem that is brugge. Service impeccable; check in was a breeze and a there was a wonderful breakfast service. Room was clean and well appointed. The hostess couldn't do enough for us - she was fabulous. My only criticism is the bed was rather hard - but that is personal preference. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We stayed in a room with a canal view for one night and loved this place. The location is fabulous, the inn quite historic and charming, the breakfast wonderful and the inn-keeper extremely helpful. I highly recommend this inn.

Our stay at Bonifacius Guesthouse was truly memorable. This quaint and charming inn was perfect and exactly as portrayed on the website - it was like being in a fairy tale. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. The location was central yet very quiet. We highly recommend this guesthouse.

My sister, niece/goddaughter and I stayed at the guesthouse in the room facing the canal during our trip to Bruges. It was lovely. The room is quaint, clean, full of history and very spacious - plenty of room for 3 women~king size bed & a very comfortable rollaway bed. The hostess Lyne goes above & beyond to make every guest feel comfortable. She is a very attentive & gracious. The breakfast is amazing including a cappuccino/latte machine. The location couldn't be better-so close to everything :) The Exclusive Guesthouse Bonifacius is top notch!

I think it would be hard to beat this for a stay in Bruges. It's a beautiful old building dating back to the 14th century, a tourist destination in its own right, with luxuriously appointed rooms and service beyond compare. We were lucky to have a 'weather upgrade' while we were there which made the roof terrace a real treat at all time of day where we could relax in the sun and listen to the sounds of Bruges. Lyne is a most attentive host and ensures that every aspect of ones stay is crafted to perfection. We stayed in the canal view room but are sure that all rooms would be delightful.

From the very attractive boutique hotel entrance door, to the perfect location, to the warm owner welcome, to the cozyness of the room..everything is superb!!!!!! We spent an unforgettable week end, captured by the pleasant medieval atmosphere and by the beauties of the old house. We would have loved to stay longer. The breakfast is rich and abondant and is served in the living room where a big fireplace is lit. The old house is overlooking the canal where duks and swans gently swim under the Bonifacius bridge. It is a worthwhile stop!!!!!!

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Amsterdam, Bruges and Paris. We found The Bonifacius on line and it exceeded our expectations. Located in a narrow cobblestone road on the lip of a canal in this beautiful, historically important town, everything about the place was exceptional. Owned by the most gracious owner, Lynne, we were treated so well from the moment we arrived. She helped us find a rental car, directed us to places in town, booked restaurants - she is a star. Our room, complete with a four-poster bed, antiques and richly upholstered curtains and furniture featured a completely updated bathroom with a soaker tub and walk-in shower. The Bonifacius is a beautiful old home with lead-paned windows and a breakfast room that looks over the canal to a church across the water. Boats travelling the canals, always stop to photograph this home that looks like it came out of a Dickens novel. Everything is beautifully decorated, spotless and there is a coffee/tea machine in the lounge where you can help yourself to a hot drink and curl up on the couch in front of the fireplace. Breakfast was fantastic and Lynne's attention to every detail was amazing. There is a rooftop deck which would be lovely to sit on in the summer. We had a wonderful time and we highly recommend the Bonifacius to anyone travelling to Bruges.
