... shrapnel in a farmers field next to hill. After touring the museum we had dinner in a fantastic Belgian restaurant - I had a Flemish stew that was amazing and Josh had steak and oysters. We finished out the day taking in the ceremony at Menin Gate. Josh and the SFDCI students had an opportunity to take part in the ceremony. The students laid a wreath in honour of the fallen. Unfortunately, I couldn't see a ...
... about what to eat, and the servings are not big enough. Then there is the awkward situation where there may be three people dining and four pieces of bruschetta are served. How to decide who is eating the last piece of bruschetta? Men don't want to be bothered with these conundrums. There were only two other tables that were occupied at dinner while we were there, and both were filled with women. I think we might be on to ...
We decided to take this weekend easy, since we'd had two weekends straight of more ambitious trips (Switzerland and London). We spent Friday evening at home. We just watched A League of Their Own and relaxed. Then, Saturday we went to Brugge, Belgium! I really liked Brugge. It's a really really neat little city, full of history and charm. It is just a really cute, romantic city. By the way, a few pictures have been added to my London blog entry, if you ...
... Today was the same. This town should not be part of Belgium, it should be British. Why? The amount of Pommie voices that we heard, so it was lucky for us that we had our British Passports so we could pass as one of these ****ers !!! Right in the centre of the main square was another ice rink. Lucy had her skates and did contemplate having a skate, but it was so crowded, full of Poms actually, compared to Ghent. We went for a walk instead. Within an hour, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Adornes Brugge
Our stay at the Adornes was absolutely delightful. The rooms were comfortable, bathrooms updated and the staff was so professional. I would definitely return to this lovely hotel. We enjoyed the superb location and the free bicycles included with our stay. There is a huge selection of adult and children's bicycles and Bruges is great to explore on a bike.
We'll never stay anywhere else in Bruges
We spent three nights here at the beginning of August. The location is great, bordering a quiet canal between the center of the city (Market Place is a pleasant walk of no more than 10 minutes) and the windmills. The rooms are nicely decorated and well maintained, with helpful touches like electric fans, good lighting and closet space, and modern bathrooms. The breakfast buffet is generous, and is served to a background of classical music with a lit candle on your table. The best part of all is the staff - helpful, friendly, accommodating, and intelligent. I can't imagine ever wanting to stay anywhere else in Bruges.
Cool place to stay
I can't believe this is considered budget. The decorating was nice, and the room and bath were spotless. The breakfast room was my favorite place- they actually had a wood fire going in that big, beautiful hearth. It might say May on the calendar, but it was chilly. Had time to take out a bicycle, it was a trip highlight. The staff was extremely freindly and helpful, and answered all your questions. Brugge, and this hotel, is one special place.
I absolutely, definitely recommend the Adornes for you to stay in on your trip to Bruges (yes, you, reading this). I can't agree with the poster who said it was on a noisy corner - our room overlooked the canal and the main street and there was no noise at all. The room was first class, beautifully presented with exposed timbers and a fantastic bathroom - the sort of place you wish you could take home with you and live in forever. Honestly, it was that nice. The breakfasts were good and the breakfast room with exposed brickwork was lovely. We were there in a freezing cold March 2003 and at the end of a day of sightseeing outdoors, loved getting back to the very cosy hotel room (and I mean cosy in the real sense not the estate agent sense for small because the room was very spacious indeed). Excellent location, just a few minutes walk into Bruges town centre. I heartily recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.
If you make it to Brugge, This hotel is a MUST...It is a VERY old building(1600's)-LOTS of charm-(We marveled at the wooden pegs used to secure the HUGE beams)-but very modern ammenities- We had room 17or 19 right in front of the Canal(BEST room in the house!)...woke up every morning to the swans swimming in the canal!
A wonderful, reasonably priced hotel, located along a beautiful canal in the heart of the city. We stayed for two nights moving rooms the second night. Our first room faced the side street and the other faced the canal (upstairs above the hotel sign). Both were clean and comfortable. I'm a light sleeper and found both rooms acceptably quiet even with an open window.
The Adornes Was A Great Choice
The Adornes worked very well for my wife and me during a 2 day stay in September. It is an easy walk or bike ride from everything in town and the rooms were small but very nicely appointed. We had a canal view room with a double bed, beautiful view and very nice bathroom. Our windows were closed at night so noise was no problem. Breakfast was excellent and served in a quaint room with a wooden floor and fireplace. We had a car and in Brugge parking isn't easy so the Hotel's underground lot was great. We also used the bikes for a ride to Damme as well as into town. It's a very nice hotel with a friendly, helpful staff.
Adornes is ok
The Adornes hotel is everything the guidebooks say, with nice rooms, well placed, friendly and helpful staff, reasonable rates and excellent breakfasts. The hotel loans the guests bicycles, a very nice addition, although I had to try four or five bicycles before I found one that worked. HOWEVER, it is on the noisiest corner in Bruges. It is a little better on the canal side, as the sound does not reverberate off the buildings, but there are two or three major bus routes along the canal, so you hear the buses night and day. The only traffic jam I saw in Bruges was right outside the Adornes. Next time in Bruges, I will look for a hotel which is not on a bus route or major thoroughfare.
We kkep going back to the Adornes
We have used the Adornes several times in the last few years. The rooms are excellent and breakfasts are very good. If you like to walk and Brugges is a city to walk in, the hotel is well placed, not too far out of the centre and the roads surrounding it are not too noisy. believe the guidebooks, its a nice combination of old and new and homely. good value for money. Parking is available nearby, underground in a secure car park.
