A stay to remember A review of Sint Niklaas B & B
My wife and I spent several nights in Brugge in September 2005 as part of a six-week holiday in Western Europe. Brugge was a highlight of our trip, due in no small part to our stay at the Sint Niklaas B&B.
Brugge has a beautiful old town which combines an historic charm with a vibrant feel. The Sint Niklaas is very close to the central market square, and the entire old town area is easily accessible from here. The town has many immaculately restored historic sites. It also has a stunning array of chocolate shops, amongst others.
Our hosts Shaun and Kim Clarke gave us a warm welcome, and looked after us well during our stay. They had recently renovated the building, and every detail of the building and the furnishings gave the impression of a high level of care and attention. There were three guest rooms available, each themed differently. We stayed in the 'Rooftop Room', which we found spacious and comfortable. There was a great view of the impressive Belfry from our window, the carillion of which provided a musical wake-up call at 8 o'clock every morning.
The breakfasts were comprehensive and outstanding. We also appreciated the well-furnished guest lounge when we returned from each day's exploring. Overall, the Sint Niklaas B&B stood out as being the best accommodation of our holiday. We hope to have the opportunity to stay there again.
