Its a lovely hotel and I would happily stay there again . Thing is I really like grand old hotels but I just want them to have modern air conditioning and sadly this one required the window to be open all night to counteract the one setting ( v hot ) the air handling system was capable of. The only...

Travelled by car with my wife and 7 month old. Check in was very easy, the staff were friendly and provided us some good advice about the area. The room was ready ahead of the official check in time so we headed straight to the room to unpack. Large bed, seating area, full bathroom with underfloor heating, fridge and coffee...

Nice very central 5 star hotel in the very centre with parking garage. Located in an old palace, nicely renovated. Spacious rooms considering Brugge old town circumstances. Way to the garage etc. a bit like a maze! Restaurant not up to the hotel quality. Breakfast very good with courteous staff.

We have just returned from a three day break in the wonderful city of Brugge. It was made special by the staff at the hotel. You can spend all day arguing about the star rating but the service we received was certainly five star. Nothing was too much trouble, from our arrival our luggage was taken to our room, extra...

In the middle of the romantic city of Bruges, the Dukes' service is perfect and if you have the time you have to visit the spa including sauns, hamam and infrared- VU-light sunbaths. + we had a suite upgrade for free !

We have just returned from a wonderful long weekend in Bruges having stayed at the very elegant Dukes Palace hotel. Perfectly positioned to enjoy the wealth of history that Bruges has to offer. The rooms are well appointed offering comfortable and stylish accommodation. Breakfast was a veritable banquet with a wide choice of hot and cold buffet fayre with Belgian...

This is a lovely and well located hotel, however it really is lacking in being anything near a 5* hotel experience. The rooms are standard, not much to be said, however the amenities are basic the bedding feels distinctly 4* and we were provided with two single duvets on a large bed. Not ideal. Also the bathroom products were poor...

This is a lovely hotel in a fantastic location right in the heart of Bruges Old Town, a short walk from the Markt square. Overall we had a very comfortable and pleasant stay. Staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was plentiful and good quality, the bar was pleasant and although we didn't eat in the restaurant the food looked...

Please be aware that you might not stay in the palace itself. Check in was fast and the staff were very courteous and helpful. We were given a modern garden room which you access by going outside of the palace and going through the garden to get to it, in hindsight I was shocked, I really think people should stay...

Stayed in a superior double room for three nights, room is spacious with beautiful decor throughout. I was on the 3rd floor and there's not much view from the room. I stayed around end of January, they were doing some renovation work for the garden and I was told that I might hear some noise and if its a problem...
