... videotaped the ceremony thank goodness! I will share with you later. The Menin Gate - is a memorial to all British and commonwealth soldiers (except New Zealand and Newfoundland) that have no known grave - over 55,000!!! The ceremony has taken place every evening at 8pm since 1927 - except during German occupation during WWII. It was standing room only at the ceremony this evening Looong day - looking forward to bed ...
On Thursday, the World Cup started and I'm officially addicted. In fact, it’s more addictive than my magnets. The time zone we are in is exceptional. Games start at 5pm (as soon as I get home), 8pm (just after dinner) and 11pm (I call this the Friday and Saturday night timeslot only). I made nachos, drank beer and was absorbed in the first match between Brazil and Croatia. In fact as I am writing right now, it is Belgium 0 Algeria 0 after 13.
... shops and not to forget all the chocolate shops everywhere as Belgium is known for its chocolate. This is a warning to chocoholics, it doesn't matter what way you look there is a chocolate chop in front of your eyes so it may or may not be the place for you to visit. The rest of the afternoon we spent in Oostende which is a little town along the coast, only 20km from where we are staying. This was another beautiful little town with the streets lined with flowers. This ...
... I also tried several other brands of beer, notably Jupiler blonde, Steen Brugge, and the more common Leffe, and Duvel. Kaylee and I frequently stopped in at a convenience store on the way back to our B&B to grab cold ones, but I'm struggling to remember their names at the moment (unrelated, I think). Needless to say, we did not rest too much before our journey to Amsterdam. Soon I'll be writing about our adventures there! Cheers from ...
... and even though they are technically Spanish (they speak Spanish and have Spanish passports), they are Basque first. Two of them even spoke Basque fluently. They said that while some regions, like Madrid, pay their taxes directly to Spain, their region pays taxes to Basque Country, which in turn pays its dues to the country. I read somewhere that this is a nation without a state, or something like that. Scotland, Brittany, and many others fall ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Heritage - Relais & Chateaux Brugge
We loved the location, the bed, the amenities, the service.
Nice boutique hotel
The Hotel Heritage is a very nice boutique hotel just a few steps from the Market Square. The staff is friendly and helpful, the room very clean, nicely decorated, and had all the modern amenities. Our superior room was a decent size for a european hotel. The rate was quite reasonable as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Friendly Four Star just near the Markt
Just a well hit eight iron away from The Markt square in the centre of Brugge (Bruges) you will find The Hotel Heritage. The Hotel Heritage is one of the frendliest places we have ever stayed. The rooms are petite and nicely decorated. You could not ask for a better location in Brugge, with many restaurants, bars and shops nearby. My wife and I stayed at The Hotel Heritage for two nights over the UK long weekend and thought it was great. The hand written weather report under our door each morning was a really nice touch. The bus stop for the short ride to the Brugge railway station is only 50 metres away at the end of the road.
Great place to stay!
We stayed for 5 days in hotel Heritage. We liked the place, service, helpfulness of the staff, nothing was ever a problem for them. The breakfast
was great in a very nice dinning room. Perfect location to explore Bruges
which is one of the most charming cities in Europe. We will go and stay there again without any hesitation. We loved it!
We stayed in the Heritage Hotel, and would certainly recommend it.
We agonized over where to stay in Brugge for several days and ultimately chose the Hotel Heritage. We were not disappointed. The hotel sits on the perfect location -- close to the square and great shopping. The staff was courteous and friendly, and were especially helpful with dinner recommendations. We got the midweek special and had a great, spacious room. Breakfast was not to be missed! I used the workout facility as well. Brugge is a great city to visit, and the Hotel Heritage is definitely someplace we would return to stay in the future.
Utterly delightful! Our room (superior) was petite in scale but suptuously decorated, had a very comfortable king-sized bed. The feeling was of utter luxury.
The location of the hotel is ideal, just a block from the main marketplace and a short walk from everything. The real highlight, however, was the warmth and attentiveness of the staff which really made our stay special.
Worthy of 5 stars
Went to Europe on my honeymoon for 1 month and stayed at four and five star hotels. This is considered a four star but was by far the best hotel we stayed in all of Europe. The Staff could not have been more friendly and helpfull. I was a royal pain asking multiple questions and they went out of their way to help me. I did not inform them that we were on our honeymoon but they overheard us talking to another guest at the front desk. The receptionist said congratulations and later that night to our surprise there was a bottle of champagne in our room compliments of the hotel. Even before this happened they beat out many of the 5 star hotels we had stayed in this was just an added touch.
Truly a hotel not to be missed in a city not to be missed.
We stayed at the Hotel Heritage in October 2003 in a Double Room - 2 beds - Superior. The Hotel Heritage was one of the hotels recommended in the Rick Steves travel book so we decided to give it a try. Our experience was fantastic. The room was elegant, spacious, and very clean. There was a small fruit basket and well stocked refrigerator in the room which was a welcome treat after a long day of exploring. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The attendant at the desk gave us a city map and pointed out some of the best sites and activities. We also received coupons for a 15% discount on a canal cruise. There was a computer in the hotel lobby that had internet access so we were able to connect to our e-mail. The hotel breakfast buffet was superb. There were plenty of choices and the quality of the food was excellent. We asked for early checkout the night before our departure because we had reserved seats on the 6:30am train back to Paris. The early checkout was no problem. The staff also made sure the breakfast buffet was ready early so the two of us could have breakfast before heading off to the train station. Since we were traveling on a limited budget we planned on taking the bus or walking the few miles to the train station. However, the attendant at the hotel arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the hotel and take us to the train station. The taxi was inexpensive (3 euro) for the trip to the train station. Plus it was not your normal big city US taxi that is dingy or dirty. This was a very nice Mercedes that was very clean and comfortable. The next time we are in Brugge we definitely plan on staying at the Hotel Heritage!
