Golden Tree Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Golden Tree Hotel is located ideally 800m from the best spots of Bruges and walking to train station. However our stay was mixed and I would recommend staying at Ghent than at Bruges. Bruges is a nice pretty town, the hotel rooms are fine, however there was construction in the hotel and plus some stairs to negotiate and rains through which to walk to room. Also on checkout the lady was insistent on charging 10€ per extra hour by the clock. Checkout time was 11am and at 11:10am she kept telling us ten mins more and we need to pay 10€ per room. No staff help you with luggage despite the few stairs to negotiate. The television was not working so we were given a bottle of wine complimentary. Considering the expensive price of this hotel and of Bruges overall, in service it was nowhere close to the service levels we received in Madrid and Paris. So I won’t blog about Bruges Stay tips as overall experience wasn’t as good. The bathrooms don’t have separators so when you bathe water will spill over to other side. The only good part of this hotel is Guillaume. He was helpful in replying all my mails queries promptly and did give us a smooth checkin process.

This hotel is in the Centre of Bruges 5 10 minutes walk from Market square and chocolate shops. The owners Bart & Sanne and all staff are so helpful the are unbelievable, my visit supposed to be a city break but due to my wife taking ill I was there for 3 weeks. Nothing was a trouble for them. Whilst I was there I noticed that it seemed to be a practice that people tried to "Blackmail" the hotel by saying that they would write bad reviews on the "Internet" if the Hotel did not give them a refund-discount or an upgrade. I think that this practice is despicable so I write this review as with all my reviews "Honestly" . This hotel is not 5 star but it is a 3-4 star . Lovely and clean - good fresh food and honest hard working staff. You will love being there in Bruges a beautiful city

Family run hotel, it was within a 10 minute walking distance of the city. It was very clean. The rooms were spacious and the bed was comfortable. You didn't hear noise from other rooms. The staff were very friendly. They had a good range of a buffet breakfast, with a pancake maker! Overall we had a great stay and I'd recommend it.

This is my third visit to this hotel and I think it’s a great hotel. Our room had been refurbished since last visit and it was a lovely modern light airy room with plenty of room. The mood lighting was a nice touch. Breakfast is typical continental with a good choice of hot and cold food. There is no bar here so it can seem a bit unsocial and we were part of a big group but there is a light comfy conservatory where you can sit and chill with your own wine if you wish and we did this one night after going into town as it was snowing and we didn’t want to stay out too late. Owners are lovely nothing g too much trouble.

We spent four nights in Brugge at the beginning of December. The hotel was located close to the center so we could go everywhere on foot. But our room was really tiny!!!! Even the bathroom was clean, the sink was clogged and also there was only one little shower gel for two people for 4 days!!!!!!! Even when we had finished it...they didn't replace it!!! So poor! The breakfast was good! I dont actually recommend this hotel to other travellers...except if there is no better choice!

I would have to disagree with some of the negative comments here. Having just come back from a weekend at the golden tree, I can say that I was plesently surprised at how good it was. The staff we met were always really helpful and friendly. I hadn't booked parking or a crib for the wee one but the lady on the front to desk went out her way to help. Moved us to a bigger room so the wee one had space to crawl which was nice. The room was very clean and modern. Sheets changed each day. Shower was nice and hot. Breakfast was really good. Plenty to choose from. Good location to. 10 min walk to the markt. Would recommend staying.

Where do I start: 1. No manned reception desk after 8pm 2. When you do get in, you have no idea how to find your room because there are no signs to indicate which numbers are where and when there is a sign, it doesn't match the numbers of the rooms. 3. We specifically requested adjoining rooms but were given rooms at opposite ends of the hotel. 4. The "deluxe room" are tiny! 5. The beds are uncomfortable 6. Your neighbours door is so close that when they open their door, it sounds like they are going to be coming into your room. 7. Colour light in bathroom - why?? Spend the money on signs for room numbers! 8. No in room coffee making facilities. You have to buy a coffee from their machine. 9. One part of the hotel has no lift. The other part does....but there is no sign to tell you where it is. My husband spent 15 mins lugging suitcases around the hotel while we tried to find out rooms. Would I recommend - no!

I had booked via net as most people do now and therefore didn't quite know what I was booking, when we arrived they had allocated the small cottage on the corner by the road, must admit didn't look like what I remembered from net, so queried and told only room available, so no chance to change. I think they called this the lovers room , could easily be called the claustrophobic room. First problem is cars parking in front of staircase on outside, when you get to top of stairs door opens outwards, so difficult to actually enter with a case.Then inside its like a big bunk bed, but seats up top instead of another bed, double bed below. The large wooden staircase takes up far too much space. Staircase down to bathroom with large corner bath. Shower attachment has been replaced but doesn't fit on hook on wall properly, colour changing lights are interesting, but not sure enough to make it romantic. Then there is quite a lot of car noise as beside main road. Breakfast is in main hotel and was really good and it is straight stroll into town or to a city gate, if you want to walk the route of the walls. So I can't recommend this room, but it has the potential to be something special if you got the right designer in and got rid of the dark wood and opened it up more.I think the popularity of the hotel revolves around the car park. There is very little parking in Bruge, so your choice is fairly limited if you have a car. The Eurostar is easier. In my opinion if we go back I would find somewhere more central, there was plenty of choice when we walked around

Hotel was clean and in a great location. Unfortunately, there was no heat in the bathroom and although we reported it, it was never fixed. The shower was very poor and just dribbled out meaning it was not a pleasent shower experience. There was no lounge or bar area and therefore nowhere to sit. Also no coffee or tea facilities in the room, so other than at breakfast drinks were out of a machine. However, the continental breakfast was good.

Came here at the beginning of October for a 3 night stay, walked from the train station took about 15mins max. Friendly greeting at reception etc. This hotel is in a great location for exploring the old city, because it's near enough to walk to the major sights, but not on the tourist trail. The room was adequately furnished, a nice size of bathroom with plenty of hot water at all times. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in any rooms as per previous review. The breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choices, which were replenished at regular intervals, there was a pancake machine and another for making boiled eggs. We had a room at the front, we noticed a bit of traffic noise from the main road, but this did not spoil our time here. There is also no bar, they have a vending machine in an enclosed courtyard area, not to our liking. So would recommend going to La Fuenta(not on tripadvisor)bar just up the road which is what we did for two of the nights. Would come here again if I was visiting Brugge
