Ter Duinen - Lovely traditional hotel in Brugge

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 30, 2012

Welcomed by the hosts in this charming hotel along the Langerei canal I was pleased to see the hotel had charm as well as modern amenities. Certainly enjoyed my breakfast sitting in the dining room overlooking the canal. There's a cosy sitting room, cute courtyard and rooms with views over the old town rooftops.

Recommended 100%!

Unique Quality: The views over the rooftops from one of the balcony rooms is astounding, and stepping out the front door right beside the canal on a fresh morning is a real treat. Breakfast is great too, and the hosts are more than happy to help you out with tips.

It's not in the centre of Brugge which is great - a 10 minute walk along the cobbled streets has you in the main square, and there is a bus if you don't want to walk.

A warm welcome in a cold town

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 5, 2012

STAYING in Bruges at the beginning of February meant temperatures of -10, frozen canals and snow-covered roads. The chill thawed at the door of the warm and welcoming Hotel ter Duinen, however.

We arrived by taxi in blizzard conditions. The hotel is about a 6-minute drive from the station on a good day but the snow had slowed the town to a near standstill. Immediately we were welcomed knowingly by the hotel's proprietor who offered us a larger Room #34 or Room #38 with a double. We opted for the latter, not discounting the fact that it would be much easier to warm up a smaller room as the temperatures outside plummeted overnight.

The ground floor to the hotel looks indulgent with a wonderful conservatory and small garden adjacent to the high-ceiling breakfast room. With a brief nosey around the ground floor completed, we walked up to our room and settled in.

The room was not particularly large, as can be seen in the picture below, but it needn't have been. The view over the canal was a lovely one to wake up to each morning although the hotel's proximity to what appeared to be a main road meant frequent buses and lorries passing audibly by the window, in spite of us being on the second floor.

The bathroom was adequately-sized with his-and-hers sinks and a decent-height shower - something of a requirement for a man of 6' 3". We did find hot water a struggle, however. The taps were capable of putting out tepid water on-demand but hot showers weren't possible and it was very difficult to get hot water in the sinks. I suspect this challenge was insurmountable given nature's contribution to cooling the town's - and hotel's - water supply.

The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from the Markt which can reasonably be called the 'centre' of Bruges. The walk takes you along the Langerai canal which is a beautiful walk to take on in any case, arriving in town at Jan Van Eyckplein. The footpaths on this walk are narrow and, certainly with them being slippery on account of the snow, we were moved onto the road on several occasions. The location is very likely to be a boon come summertime when the tourists flock en masse - I can quite imagine being grateful to be able to escape the maddening crowds at the Markt and Djiver.

Breakfast is a plentiful and relaxing affair. We were brought fresh, hot croissants along with grapes and pineapple and the offer of tea or coffee. A self-serve system allows access to cereal, breads, a cheese board and a charcuterie. Absolutely plenty to keep those stomachs swollen.

Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel - although the signal did not make it to Room #38 which necessitated us venturing onto the landing in order to use it. For those without their own devices, the hotel has kindly provided a laptop for use between 8.30 a.m. and 10.30 p.m.

When we return to Bruges to see what the town looks like underneath all that snow, I'll contact ter Duinen immediately. Unless willing to fork out for the likes of Relais Bourgondisch Cruyce in the very heart of town, there is no reason to look any further than this beautiful, friendly little hotel.

Great Place

We stayed 2 nights there recently and couldn't have been more satisfied. Owners were very gracious, room was very comfortable, location was away from the hustle and bustle of crowds, bath towels were great, and breakfast was delicious. Marc and his wife go out of their way to make sure you're comfortable and are extremely helpful. It was interesting to browse their photo album showing the work they put into creating their Hotel...you can tell it's a labor of love for them.
When I return, I'll stay here again.

Great small quiet hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 10, 2007

In a quiet part of the town, away from the tourist throng, the Hotel is located on a canal and is about ten minutes walk from the main square. The room was very large (for Europe) and was well furnished. The beds were on the hard side - but being a back-sufferer this was a definite plus point! Free internet and wi-fi is available. Dispite being formerly a family house, all floors are serviced by a lift - great if you have heavy luggage. The great added benefit was parking in a lock-up garage about 50 metres from the main door.

A wonderful breakfast (buffet style) is served in a delightful dining room at the front of the house. This opens onto a small lounge and then onto an internal courtyard.

The only negative point was no coffee in the bedroom!

Unique Quality: Really friendly and helpful staff.
