We stayed in Bruges for a romantic, relaxing long weekend. The hotel was fantastic with exceptionally comfortable beds and a gorgeous bathroom. We can truely recommend waking up to breakfast in bed - we would challenge anyone to eat a quarter of what is on the tray!! If you go to Bruges we would recommend this hotel.
Feel like a local
The Hotel Oud Huis de Peellaert lived up to all expectations if not more. The hotel room was amazing, decorated in an antique local fashion, with comfortable beds, large bathroom and a delicious breakfast (Buffet style). The hosts were friendly and helpful.
A great place for a decent (off the tourist track) Italian style meal was the restaurant 'chilli' across the road from the hotel. It seemed to be the only modern looking restaurant with locals enjoying a meal. Good value at £20 for two. After going to Tom Pounces for Mussels and chips the night before (good food, tacky surroundings) this was a welcome break.
We booked the break on shortbreaks, so it included eurostar travel and was a lot cheaper then anything we could have sourced ourselves due to travelling between Xmas and New Year.
So a perfect long weekend (we spent two night, three days there).
Okay but certainly not 4 Star
Does not serve dinner; does not have many staff so room service can be slow; poor security (thefts occurred during our stay) - keys to rooms within easy reach of visitors and reception often unmanned. Rooms okay but stink of smoke - hotel opposite a youth hostel so expect to be woken in the early hours sometime during your stay - can not only be noisy but rooms also get some pollution. Breakfast okay but nothing to write home about. Tend to recommend Flemish restaurants - food not so good so beware of their recommendations. Car parking at hotel limited but short walk to public and cheap/reasonably secure car park.
This hotel is in a fantastic location, the rooms are lovely - very comfortable & clean - the staff are great and the breakfasts are really really good (lots of fresh fruit, pastries, bread, meat - everything really!). It offers real value for money too - stay here if you go to Bruges!!!
Hard to beat
This hotel has everything you could want from a city hotel. Great location, friendly & efficient staff, beautiful decor, excellent buffet breakfast, and comfortable & well equipped bedrooms. It is fantastic value. I don't hesitate to recommend it.
wow this hotel was fabulous, I heartly agree with all the other comments about this hotel, location fab, decor fab, staff superb.....you really must try this hotel if travelling to Bruges.. you won't be dissapointed!!!
One word - Fantastic
I loved staying at this hotel in Bruges.
It is sooooooooo nice you will not want to leave the place. The hotel is immaculate, the staff are very professional and the decor is out of this world. Plus it's very central!!
Would go back in a minute!!
Agree whole heartedly with the other 2 reviews. The ambience and decor were flawless, the staff charming and polite at all times, the breakfast more than adequate & served in pleasant surroundings and the location unbeatable. This 4* newly refurbished hotel is 2 minutes from the Burg and main square and easy to get to from the station.
Our room was a standard double. Medium sized with a lovely bathroom, no chandaliers but there wasn't a smudge or a scratch to be seen anywhere. Only very minor gripe was the slight disappointement on our arrival at being led through a back door through a small car park to our room! It's always nicer to be in the main part of the hotel, particularly one like this - so bear this in mind when you book.
This was an amazing little hotel. The decor was wonderul and very nice. The staff were very helpful, and always polite. Of all of the hotels I've stayed in in Europe this is by far one of the best. Breakfast was always great, with a large selection. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Brugge!!!!
Formal, not stuffy...Hip, not trendy....
While researching our trip, I noticed the mid March opening of this hotel coincided with our visit to Brugge so we decided to give it a try...The thought of sleeping on brand new mattresses was very appealing...
Simply put...the hotel is spectacular...The location is unbeatable and the renovation of the mansion is superb...and the appointments are extremely nice. We had a deluxe room with high ceilings, a huge antique armoire (with its own skeleton key!!!) a crystal chandelier; and those brand new beds...
Breakfast was included in our price...and was easily the best we had during our two weeks in Europe...The buffet featured large platters of varied cheeses, 3 types of ham, boiled eggs, 2 types of cereal, croissants and pastries, fresh fruits, orange and grapefruit juice...and of course, coffee and tea...all served in a bright, light and airy room overlooking a courtyard...I imagine one can eat in the courtyard during the warmer months.
The public areas are lovely...and somewhat formal with satin covered wing chairs and love seats...There is a very pleasant but small lounge/bar with a nice Belgian beer selection and artsy, but classic, black and white photos of screen, music and sports legends such as Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio, Louis Armstrong and Paul Newman...Tasteful classic jazz such as Louis Armstrong, Billie Holliday and Frank Sinatra drifts quietly through the hotel.
Throughout the hotel that same blend of artsy classic hip and formality combine to make a wonderful ambiance...Restful and relaxing, the hotel is located just off the Burg...right in the heart of the central city.
Formal but not stuffy...Hip, but not trendy...Expensive, but with good value...The Oud Huis de Peellaert is a great place for a little splurge in one of the world's most magical cities...

The markets in Brugge are surprisingly small. After checking into our hostel after small chat with the owner who has previously lived in NZ we again settle down proudly displaying our embellished Xmas Jumpers for some beers (cue TOURIST). We all have a few too many of the 9% versions (and even higher). Of course we also had to pick a different beer each time. That is how the rest of ...
currently on the top floor of a 5 level hostel with very steep & narrow spiral stairs. just heard an older couple make it to the top with a lot of huffpuff. I hope the lady isn't relying on that bannister...it's not exactly "safe".
before we get into it, I'd just like to say that customs to enter Europe via the Eurostar is so chill ...
... squares and little alleyways that only exist around these old towns. There were really interesting antique markets with lots of cool stuff we wouldn't get through customs. It was warm, romantic and you couldn't help walking around with a big smile on your face. Brugge is worth a visit, even if it's only for the day ( but beware of hoitey toitey sales staff in lace shops ). (Melissa) Brugge...stay the **** out of the bike lanes!!!
