Egmond is Excellent A review of Hotel Egmond
Hotel Egmond has the look and feel of an old manor, while providing guests with modern amenities, comfort, and all around hospitality. The family that runs this special place is very helpful, friendly, and relaxed. Room 12 is large, with views of the surrounding gardens, a beautiful park, and Lake Minnewater on one side; and a picture perfect shot of the O.L.V.(ornate cathedral spire, second highest brick structure in the world) on the other. The beds are big and comfy. The bathroom is tiny, but modern. The Egmond is an easy walk from the train station, and to the main squares of Brugge, but is still far enough away to provide some tranquility from the teeming tourist masses.
Breakfast is included in the room price, and this buffet should not be missed, as it is delicious, presented wonderfully, and served in a beautiful setting. Next door, at the Casteel Minnewater, an elegant dinner by a roaring fire, or a lambic on the terrace is a must. These establishments capture the antiquity that Brugge has become famous for, and also provide modern-day comforts to insure an awesome visit.
