Travel Blogs from Brugge
Today was our last day of cycling, and we had a great day. There were no mishaps, and the weather cooperated fully. It is Saturday of a long weekend here in Belgium, and the first thing we noticed this morning was how many people were on the bike paths – walkers, casual cyclists, family groups with small children, pelotons of racers and …
Today we went to the beach – a 57 km round trip cycle from Brugge to De Haan on the shore of the North Sea. There were thrills: the four sisters changed into and out of their bathing suits between the change houses that they would have had to pay for – behind towels held up by their sisters. Caroline was offering passers-by a thrill for …
First challenge this morning was to pump up some of the bicycle tires that we'd noticed yesterday were soft. Suddenly there was a big bang. Clem’s rear tire had blown up. Frank thought there must have been a flaw in the tube. Others wondered if Frank might have been over-zealous in pumping -- very much like Pap. Everyone rushed to let a …
Today was our first day of biking in Brugge – without a guide but with a route map provided by the hotel. There were three notable features of today's excursions. First was the number of times we lost our path and had a struggle determining which way to go (hence the title of this entry). Second was the distance we covered – our GPS …
Today after a last breakfast together, we waved Wally and Sue off, dragging their bags through the rain to the station to catch a series of trains for Paris. We followed shortly after and managed to negotiate our connections in Maastricht and Liege, despite crowded trains and all of our luggage, without any trouble. We played musical chairs in the …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Fevery Brugge
Brugge is one of Europe's "crown jewels" and the Hotel Fevery is an excellent choice in which to stay while there. It's centrally situated within a ten-minute walk of the center of Brugge. It's also an easy walk to the boat to Damme as well as park where several picturesque antique windmills reside. The rooms are modern, immaculately clean, bright and well ventilated. Some folks might find the rooms to be a bit small, but I'm over 6 feet and 240 lbs. and had no complaints. Although the hotel is located in a quiet location, the rooms at the back of the hotel may offer less of the limited street noise. Other amenities are a great Belgian restaurant around the corner from the hotel, as well as the knowledgeable advice of the hotel's proprietor. The Fevery would unquestionably be my first choice to stay in Brugge should my travels allow for a return to this charming city.
Service Makes the difference
My wife and I stayed here for a single night on our way to Paris. The room was quiet and all we expected. I could emphasize that it was very quiet, as is the entire hotel (almost eerily so) but there's not so much action in town between dusk and dawn anyway so probably not an issue in Bruges.
Paul made all the difference though. We had an early train out, so he started breakfast an hour earlier than scheduled just for us the one night guests. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh. Putting each and every customer first is the only way to do business and pays off for Fevery.
Charming hotel, excellent service
We had the most pleasant service during our stay. The owner seemed to speak many languages and was very helpful. Besides the room was nice and quiet which we definitely appreciated the breakfast was plentifully and tasteful and we were able to have cold or hot drinks until late evening which was awfully nice coming home tired or thirsty.
We shall gladly recommend this charming little hotel to all our friends or anybody going to Bruges or staying over on the way further on.
We have already spent several wonderful vacations at the Hotel Fevery, and we can definitely recommend this house.
We just came back from Belgium. Stayed at Fevery two nights. The biggest negative was the size of our room- tiny and cramped. We have been to many European hotels and this was by far the smallest budget-hotel room I have ever seen. There was not 2 feet separating one side of the bed from the bathroom, which did not have a door( would have no place for it to swing open either in or out), but a sliding glass! You were practically doing all your needs in the bedroom. Bathroom is very small as well. If you are a "lager person" the size of room/bathroom would definitely be a problem. Both of us had problem sleeping on very hard/uncomfortable pillows.
A fine little hotel on a quiet street in Bruges
We recently stayed two nights in the three-star Hotel Fevery in Bruges and enthusiastically recommend it. It is spotlessly clean, very recently renovated and in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk from the center of town. The owner is helpful and welcoming and our experience was really great.
Nothing more/nothing less
My wife and I stayed at the Fevery for 4 nights in early July. While our stay had no negative surprises, it had no positive surprises either. We got pretty much what we paid for---nothing more/nothing less.
Lovely hotel in a quiet central location
We stayed at the Hotel Fevery for 3 nights in March. This hotel is a short walk (less than 10 minutes) from the main square and is situated in a lovely cobbled street around the corner from the beautiful canals.
The hotel is very clean and worthy of its 3 stars. Our room was modern with a good sized bathroom, again immaculately clean. Buffet style breakfast was good. The hotel manager Paul is very welcoming and knowledgeable about Brugge. Discounted tickets for a boat trip on the canals can be bought at the hotel. You can also purchase tickets for bike hire and a discounted ticket for some of the cities sights. We would definitely stay in this hotel again. You will not be disappointed if you book this small, friendly run hotel. Enjoy your stay .........
Fevery--Quiet, Clean, & Reasonably Priced
Only a 10-15 minute walk from the main square, this well-run hotel is on a quiet street. Our room was not small, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfasts were good. Mr. Asselman, the owner, is friendly and helpful.
