Antique, but fantastic view. Don't miss the breakfast in the dining room. If you're a morning bird, you will get the best place.

... Bruge is particularly well known. We queued for a short while to climb up the 366 steps to the top of the belfry as they only allow 70 people in the tower at the same time. The belfry has no less than 47 bells, including an extremely large bell.
The views from the top across the town were just superb. We also had a great view of the square below with its row of step gabled terraced Flemish houses rising up ...
