Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ter Duinen Brugge
Delightful, Charming, Friendly, and a Great Breakfast
My wife and I just returned from a 16-day swing through Amsterdam, Brussels, Brugge, Paris and London. Brugge, and the Hotel Ter Duinen, were the most pleasant surprises of the trip. The warm welcome, the friendly and helpful staff, the air, the light, the views, the spacious room and the 'ample' breakfast were all a cut above what we experienced on this and previous travels.
Ter Duinen was fabulous
Our stay at Ter Duinen was fabulous. Everything about this charming, small hotel is outstanding-from the owners to the food. The decor is warm and inviting. The breakfast were delicious, and much more than a typical continental breakfast. The management went out its way to be as accomodating as possible. Without hesitation, we would recommend this
delightful small hotel to anyone visiting Brugge.

First Class Hotel
Just back after spending three nights in the Hotel Ter Duinen. There was absolutely nothing we could find fault with at this Hotel. Our room was very spacious and immaculate as was the rest of the Hotel. The breakfast was lovely and a great start to the day. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We asked the Lady who owns it about a tour one day and she said she had a leaflet on it but couldn't find one. We said it was ok and would get it later. We then left the hotel to head into town when the next thing she appeared at the side of us on her bike with a leaflet as she had found one. There is not many people would give you service like that! She also gave excellent advice on places for eating. We loved Bruge and would definately go back but only if we could stay at the Hotel Ter Duinen.
Great hotel & town
Spent a night in Brugge on a weekend escape from London and thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Hotel ter Duinen. All arrangements were made easily via email with a very prompt response. Upon arrival, Marc (the owner) gave a warm welcome and presented me with a map of the town and his recommendations of places to eat & see. He also gave me a discount card for local museums etc which came in handy during my stay.
The room was a nice size and very clean. My room overlooked the rear courtyard so it was VERY quiet.
Breakfast was very nice in a very pretty dining room.
The hotel is a bit of a walk to town, but considering Brugge is a place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city the leisurely walk (or short bus ride) to town wasn't bad. In addition, the hotel was quite close to the windmills, which if you are staying in the the center of town, you might not venture to see.
I'd highly recommend the hotel.
Our four night visit to Brugge was spent at this fine small hotel. We had a canal-view room that was nicely appointed and comfortable for two. The breakfast buffet was wonderful both in quality and ambience-- such a gorgeous, inviting dining room! Though not as close in as some other hotels, we had no qualms about the 10-15 minute walk to the town center. A nearby market was handy for purchasing food and beer for picnics in the town. One note, our room faced the street and the traffic noise, though infrequent, was loud with open windows. A lovely view however and the church chimes were charming.
There are many lovely small hotels in Brugge, but we would stay at the Hotel ter Duinen again because of the caring and thoughful owners and staff. We felt like very welcome guests.
I'd never stay here again
The only redeeming feature of this hotel was the breakfast, which was very lovely. Everything else was a disappointment. We paid luxury hotel prices, but had a hotel room with all the charm of a cheap motel. It was cramped, noisy, and ugly. The service was poor as well. We slept in the first morning, and as we were leaving for the day I asked them to make up the room. They assured me that they would, but they never did. The toilet overflowed. And, to top it all off, they charged me over 2 euros per phone call for calls to toll free numbers, even though there was no posted policy on such charges.
Excellent small hotel, run by extremely helpful couple who speak perfect English. Rooms very comfortable and well furnished, and breakfast truly memorable. We have been twice and would recommend the Ter Duinen to anyone.
Wonderful and charming
Everything about the Ter Duinen was wonderful. I would return in a heart beat. The staff members were extraordinarily friendly and the rooms were great, especially if you can get a view of the canal. A very charming and cozy place to call home. I'll never stay anywhere else in Brugge.
Great hotel, excellent service.
Our stay at the Hotel Ter Duinen was excellent. The rooms are very clean, tastefully decorated, and decently sized (by European standards). It's about a ten minute walk from the Brugge markt to the hotel. We had no problem finding free parking along the nearby streets, even during the busy Easter weekend. The breakfast room, which catches plenty of morning sunshine, was a highlight. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, directing us to two restaurants on successive nights that were exactly what we were looking for. Fresh flowers in the lobby added a pleasant touch. We'd definitely stay again.
A Delightful Hotel
Hotel ter Duinen is a delightful hotel run by a very friendly couple. The rooms and service are
excellent, and the feakfast is first rate.
The location is a pretty fair walk from town
center but frequent buses run by the front of the hotel. Parking is not a problem.

We arrived in Düsseldorf around 6:45 a.m. We got our things off the plane and walked immediately to the passport check, which we easily cleared. We had one checked bag, that being a small bag that held our walking sticks, since you can't carry them on. Didn't have to wait long for that, so with nothing to declare in customs, we went out the doors to catch a cab to our Avis car rental office.

... The beer tasted great so we decided to stay and have a light lunch at their restaurant. That was until the staff completely ignored us and couldn't even take our order after asking to twice and waiting 20 minutes. Once again hit by the rudeness stick. When we got our tour tickets at the brewery the lady at the desk got talking to us about football and said the last home game for Club Brugge was on today. Sadly after she looked ...
... edition of a popular dark beer. With the alcohol content around 10%, it didn't take long before I was feeling the effect! The following morning I got up for the free breakfast, before going back to bed for a quick nap. Then I went to do the walking tour. The tour was with the same company as the one in cologne, meaning the same style of tour. The male tour guide was very flirty, giving out high 5's for every correct answer and a hug after you got 3. I made sure I threw in a ...
... driving to our first stop at Hill 60, where we saw concrete bunkers and shelters and bomb holes and mine craters. It brought the book and film that we both have read and seen alive. There was a fitting memorial to the 1st Australian Tunneling Coy. Also good to note that the original memorials that were destroyed by the Germans in WW2 have been rebuilt. It was serene to see sheep grazing nearby. Next onto Polygon Wood Cemetery ...
