... Princess Diana Memorial Trail through the park and saw a lot of pretty birds. As we got closer to Big Ben we stopped and had a beer at Ales & Pies.
We ended up leaving a bit late only to realize that the metro would take much longer than anticipated. I was on edge. We hustled like nobody's business through King's Cross and we were going to make it just in time... until we got to security. For some god only knows reason my bag ...
... once it arrived) the train was fairly long. So we got some seats. We journeyed out of the city, through some pretty towns and countryside - lots of animals around - everyone seems to have a few chickens, a goat and a donkey! After just over an hour, we arrived in Bruge and with what seemed to be almost the whole train, disembarked. Finding our way to the city was easy - follow the crowds!! We walked through a park just north of the train station and met with ...

If you are a food lover, don't miss the steamed mussels. It costs approximately 18-24 euros per person, and it's worth trying. And if you take a stroll along the street, it's really hard to miss the warm and sweet smell of waffles. Anyway, it was ...

(They make a better beer than waffles) After a couple of hours walking we returned to the Hotel just beating the rain.The shower at our Hotel was one of those plexiglass precast things. The shower rose had LED lights in it. Green for cold then it went to blue followed by purple and red as the water got hotter. It was more fun playing with the Disco lights then scrubbing ...

I should add that I aught to be fast asleep. However due to the Belgium waffles I think I'm having a sugar rush so finding it impossible to sleep! Today we woke up, not early enough for Ty, as I don't fancy awaking at 7am when there's no need to. He went off, by ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Absoluut Verhulst Brugge
My wife and I had a wonderful, memorable stay in Brugge with Freida and Benno at the Absoluut Verhulst. Brugge is a wonderful city and we will definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity.
My husband and I stayed at Absolut Verhulst for two nights in May of this year and I have nothing but compliments to share about this terrific B&B. What a perfect location...walking distance to windmills, the city centre, shopping and terrific restaurants. Our hosts, Benno and Freida were friendly, helpful and accommodating and certainly helped make our stay in this wonderful city a real pleasure. The room (the classic) was clean, quiet and tastefully decorated with a comfortable bed and ensuite bathroom. Breakfasts were fabulous with fresh fruit each morning and Benno's custom-made egg and bacon dish, fresh breads, croissants and delicious coffee. Surprisingly, for a bed and breakfast, our bed was made up each day. What a treat...in fact our whole visit to Bruges was wonderful and I shall not hesitate to recommend this B&B to friends and in giving full marks to Absolut Verhulst and its hosts for making it all so perfect.
Myself and my husband headed to Bruges to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We selected Absoluut Verhulst after reading the reviews here and we were NOT disappointed. This is far and away the best B&B we've ever stayed in (and we've done a lot of travelling). Benno and Freda are absolutely fantastic and have impeccable taste so their home is fabulous. We stayed in the 'loft suite' and it comes highly recommended. The breakfast is superb, they provide a range of complimentary travel guides (to borrow), and you can rent bikes for the day for €5/day (highly recommended)! It's a five minute walk (if that) from the centre of the city. The only thing we would say is that this property may not be suitable for those who may have difficulty with stairs as there's a lovely original but narrow stairwell to the bedrooms.... Book in now or you'll end up disappointed!
Two friends and I converged from London, Paris, and the US to spend three nights last week at Absoluut Verhulst and we cannot say enough positives about our experience. We arrived late Sunday evening while Frieda and Benno were entertaining guests - they immediately attended to our needs, including lugging a large suitcase up the winding staircase. The rooms were wonderful - my two friends had the suite with a loft, allowing them each to have privacy while sharing common space. My room was on the floor below and was extremely comfortable with a large double bed, sitting area, refrigerator, and bathroom with shower.
The Absoluut Verhulst was one of the best B&B's we stayed in during our three weeks in Belgium and France in September, and we highly recommend it for many reasons.
A Wonderful Bed & Breakfast
We have recently returned from two weeks in Europe. We spent 4 nights in Bruges at Absoluut Verhulst and were very pleased. Benno and Frieda were very gracious hosts who took care of all of ours needs. The room was very clean and the breakfasts were great. Our last day happened to coincide with a country wide strike which shut down all rail and bus service in the country. Benno and Frieda offered to drive us to Lille, France to get the Eurostar to Paris. This saved us hours of frustration and inconvenience. We will always remember their kindness and consideration.
The best B&B we've ever stayed at
Having read some fantastic reviews on this website I felt compelled to write a very positive review following our recent stay.
Benno and Freda are the most lovely couple and really made us feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door at 9.30am on a Sunday morning. Nothing was too much trouble - the room (we had the garden room) was very comfortable although the stairs are steep down to the bathroom if you are a little unsteady on your feet!
The breakfast is a real treat and served at a nice leisurely pace - Benno makes a great scrambled egg, ham and cheese dish.
Although there's no designated hotel parking, Freda provided us with a pass and found us a space around the corner.
Just returned from a whirlwind trip through Europe and I must say staying at Absoluut Verhulst in Brugge was one of the biggest highlights of the trip. Location is great - the house is very centrally located but still on a quiet street. As far as comfort, my wife and I really felt at home here. The room was very spacious, nice furniture and a great view into gardens. Breakfasts were simply magnificent. Much, much more than other B&B breakfasts of coffee, juice and danishes. Benno and Frieda are great hosts- they were quick to handle any needs we had. They made great suggestions for restaurants, shopping for chocolates, even french fry stands (which we had plenty of!). They had a special map of all the suggestions that was much easier to follow than the one we had. I must say the most gracious moment came on our last day. We got a very early start and Frieda insisted at fixing us breakfast before we left even though it was 2 hours early! Simply a great place that we will definitely come back to.
My college age daughter and I spent two nights at this lovely B&B just a 5 minute walk from the medieval center of town. Benno & Frieda were charming, friendly and so helpful and accommodating. Our room overlooked a garden courtyard and the bed and duvet were so comfortable. The heat was regulated by us and the room was tastefully decorated and bright. The bathroom was several steps down en suite and was enormous, modern and bright as well with a walk in shower that could accommodate 4. Together with an incredibly sumptuous and delicious breakfast, this marvelous B&B was just 75 euros per night (cash) including tax and breakfast. Reserve early as there are only 3 rooms and it was full mid-week off-season.
We've just returned from a wonderfully refreshing stay in Bruges after discovering possibly the best B&B in Belgium! The Absoluut Verhulst Bed and Breakfast is in a quiet area (Verbrand Neiuwland), a pleasant 5-minute walk from the central market. The rooms are big, clean, warm and well-equipped with a TV, tea-making facilities and a fridge/mini-bar. The en-suite bathrooms are also spacious and pristine with a modern shower and plenty of mirrors and storage space. Our particular bathroom was on a different level and reached by a mini-staircase, which was a little challenging after indulging in Belgian beer!
