The room (superior) was excellent, the staff helpful and attentive, the breakfast very good and the happy hour deal at the bar superb, so why only 4 stars? The answer is that the hotel is on one of the main streets into the centre, which when you add the lorry and bus noise, the raucous punters walking home late at night, the building work to the side and back of the hotel and the refurbishment that is going on inside it, means your chances (certainly during the week) of a quiet and interrupted night's sleep are unlikely. This is a real shame as the beds are very comfortable and the refurbished superior room well appointed, so I would recommend packing the ear plugs if you fancy this hotel.

Its about 5 mins walk from the main square and has on site car parking (slightly pricey) a indoor heated swimming pool and a great buffet style breakfast with plenty of choice. For those arriving by train, my top tip would be that the hotel is the opposite side of the town from the rail station, so about a 25 min walk.

However, there are a couple of fantastic restaurants close by (see my seperate reviews) and to finish on a high - the happy hour in the bar! A great selection of local and wider Belgium beers at half price in convivial surroundings for 2 hrs between 4pm and 6pm every day. That's 6 quality beers for less than £10, you can't go wrong!

So I would recommend the hotel overall and suggest that you ask for a quiet room (if they have any). But as a safety measure, pack those ear plugs!

Arriving in a snowy Bruge in February, it helps to have somewhere to park ( Bruge is great for walking about, but not hot on parking).. However it can be a problem if you have a large car.

The rooms are adequate, but do not have baths ( but larger showers). Tea and coffee supplied but only creamer - a particular bugbear for Brits, used to getting milk..

The hotel is very central, so an easy stroll to the centre and surrounded my many restaurants.

The Breakfast was more then sufficient to keep you going until Dinner !

A lovely hotel which is in the process of being refurbed while we were there. This however, did not affect the time we spent in the hotel.
Our room was modern & clean with a mini bar.
Breakfast consisted of all the usual continental food, also included scrambled eggs, boil your own eggs & bacon. You definately could not starve!
The swimming pool, although it is small it is well worth taking a dip into. Towels are provided, which is definately a bonus.
Location fantastic, turn left out of the hotel & just follow the road which takes you to the main square. Shop, Eat & Drink to your hearts content. Things are expensive but that's what you get with the euro!

We normally stay in one of the larger hotel chains in Bruges, but they only had a smoking room left. We were really pleased to find The Flanders for a good price, and were very happy with the standard of accomodation. The family room was very spacious, with comfy beds, very clean and a good selection of TV channels. Our children enjoyed the pool, a compact facility, but a bonus in a small hotel. Happy hour in the bar was most enjoyable, nice friendly people, very laid back and great value. Breakfast was in a very nice dining area, with a good selection of hot & cold food on offer. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: room 120 is at the rear of the building, which is away from any bar noise, but doesnt have such a nice view. It is near the pool, which is handy.

My wife and I stayed here for our 2nd wedding anniversary - we booked a luxury double room which turned out to be much better than we expected.

The room was very modern with real wood flooring, a large flat screen tv, separate bathroom & toilet, mini bar, huge bed and a mini-safe (free of charge). We arrived at the hotel at 11am which we knew would be too early to check-in but thought we may be able to leave our bags at the hotel and return later. To our surprise, our room was ready and we were allowed to check-in! The lady on reception provided us with a map (so no need to buy your own anywhere) and also pointed out some of the places to see around the city. She was very pleasant, welcoming and spoke great English.

The location was also great - we knew it wasn't exactly in the centre, but it was easy to find and was only a 10min stroll to the main square.

The hotel bar was really nice - especially during the 4-6pm happy hour (half price on selected drinks) where you could get a beer for 1.6euro! It was fairly quiet during other times, but was cosy next to the fire. The barmen were friendly and also kept the free peanuts topped up! Even outside the happy hour, the drinks were reasonably priced.

We only stayed one night but would have loved to stay longer. Bruges is a lovely city and we will return. The breakfast in the hotel was plentiful and kept us going way past midday. There were, cereals, fresh fruit, fruit cocktail, scrambled egg, bacon, toast, boiled eggs (which you could cook yourselves in the handy boiler), croissants, pastries, yoghurts, many types of bread, hams, cheeses... the list goes on. Hot drinks were available and there was also a selection of fresh fruit drinks.

Top marks from me!
