Travel Blogs from Brugge
Although it could be said that our adventure across Europe officially ended in Copenhagen, we did have one more stop at Bruges. Somewhere we could relax without worrying about too many sights to see or any navigation issues, and where we could both treat ourselves after a long month of budgeting.
Before I crack on, I must reflect on what …
Everyone looked horrible this morning haha. I didn't feel too bad since I came back a bit early but getting on the bus at 7am was a mission for all. We had a huge day of travelling ahead doing 4 countries and finishing in London that night. Our first stop was in bruge in Belgium. This is where we stopped for lunch and it was a cool little city. Apparently this is where French fries where actually first created, not sure if that's completely true ...
... to children riding and playing on the carousal. There were even some children in swimming, looking very cold, but enjoying the water and the holidays. Interesting that I’m on leave for the first time not in our school holidays and then come to a place that is on school holidays for about 8 weeks. There are kids everywhere.
We really enjoyed our time at Dunkirk and then made our way back to the hotel and it actually only took us about 40mins to ...
... real, probably another sinus infection (or recurrence of the same one). Back at the hostel I ask the guy about healthcare prices in Belgium, and decide a doctor's visit is too expensive for what might clear up on its own. He gives me the location of a pharmacy open on Sunday, and I confirm what I suspected - no antibiotics without a prescription. The only medicine available to me does more or less the same thing as what I've ...
... These above door guardians or decorations are often humorous (check the model of the nun in the window above a restaurant in an area known for the religious women who still dwell there) or religious - many are dedicated to Ave Maria as Mary is the patron saint of Bruges.
We escape the crowds one afternoon and take a lazy boat ride along a canal dug by Napoleon’s troops, to the small village of Damme, where bicyclists clatter along the cobblestones. We find ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Tree Brugge
Bon accueil mais chambre minuscule !
Un très bon accueil, le gérant est sympathique et à l'écoute. Cependant nous avions une chambre qui donnait sur le parking et la porte d'accès de nuit. Le bruit des personnes rentrant durant la nuit par cette porte était assez dérangeant. De plus, la chambre était très petite avec une toute petite fenetre... Pas de problème de propreté. Le petit déjeuner compris dans le prix était très appréciable.
From the moment of stepping through the front door into the lovely light filled reception area, our experience at The Golden Tree Hotel was a memorable one.
Beautiful hotel - perfect base
The Golden Tree Hotel was beautiful. Such fantastic value for money and somewhere I'd recommend for a relaxing getaway!
The breakfasts were amazing and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in were spacious and clean and had all we could ask for.
We are looking forward to our next trip.
Awful traffic noise
Brugge is a lovely city and the Golden Tree is ideally situated as a base from which to explore it. The main problem we had with the hotel was the awful traffic noise. The hotel is on a main through road that is very busy with traffic throughout the day and for most of the night. Some of this is heavy lorry traffic presumably on its way to Zeebrugge. The noise is probably worse at the front of the hotel (we were in room 22). It was so loud that it was difficult to sleep. We also felt that the quality of the room (size and quality of furniture and fittings) was poor for a 3 star rating. There were for example many broken bathroom tiles. The breakfast was however very good and as mentioned it is conveniently located. If driving, the car park and location would be very helpful indeed.
Das stilvolle Hotel in Randlage zur Altstadt ist ideal für Ausflüge zu Fuß in die Stadt! Der Chef "Dave" an der Reception spricht englisch & französisch. Er gibt bereitwillig Auskunft zu Ausflügen, Restaurants ect. Das Frühstücksbuffet ist Durchschnitt.Leider muß man den lauten Strassenlärm direkt vor dem Hotel erwähnen, da eine der 4-spurigen Hauptstrassen direkt vor dem Hotel lang läuft. Da ist ein Fenster zum Hof gold wert, aber selten!
Friendly and convenient
I couldn't have stayed in a more friendly, courteous hotel. Comfortable room, super food, Classic surroundings, car park and convenient location. Above all, the friendliness of Francine and Dave, their local knowledge of the best pubs, beer, restaurants and chocolate shops shared enthusiastically. I have no hesitation in recommending the Golden Tree to anyone visiting Bruges and I intend to visit there again next year.
This is a well run hotel of character, centrally located and good value for money. We were made to feel very welcome by the proprietors whose understanding and knowledge of Brugge made our stay all the more enjoyable.
We stayed at the Inter Hotel (as it was then) between Christmas and New Year, for a couple of nights. The staff were extremely friendly and were very efficient with allocating our room. The room itself was, as the advert said, "confortable", but could do with a little updating but am sure this will happen soon. The location was ideal to explore the t'Zand square and was only a brisk walk down the main shopping street to the main market square. The breakfast was continental and just what we needed to start the day. We would recommend this hotel and stay here again, should we return to Bruges.
A good base from which to explore
My husband and I just returned from Brugge and we stayed at the Inter Hotel, which is just a stone's throw from the t'Zand and the Concertgebouw, and about 10 minutes walking distance from all the main attractions.The outside and lobby of the hotel suggest lavishness. We were greeted very warmly by the proprieter, who speaks several languages fluently (so you never have to worry about communicating).I found it a tad overpriced, considering the location. Like I said, it was not very close to the tourist attractions, and it was on a busy street. So there was a lot of noise. The room was extremely basic and very plain looking, despite the lavishness of the lobby and breakfast room. The bed was not comfortable. And if you're allergic to dogs, you might not want to stay there, as the owner's dog is a constant fixture (I enjoyed the dog, but it did bark a lot).Good points: a parking lot with free parking, phenomenal breakfast (all you can eat buffet consisting of assorted breads, meats, cheeses, yogurt, jams, honey, nutella, cream cheese, juice, tea, coffee). We enjoyed our stay for the most part, but the largest problem, aside from the noise, was the price. I wouldn't pay that much again for such basic amenities and such a small and bland room and uncomfortable bed. And the shower head in our bathroom was about knee high, which made taking showers very interesting.
