    Lovely hideaway

    I love the location and friendliness of this hotel. It is quirky and different. Only downside for me was, the bar/restaurant isn't always open when expected. We were on a 3 night stay, we arrived Monday no bar or restaurant open that evening, although the information in the room suggested the bar would be, so we made sure we booked a table for the restaurant the following 2 nights in case they worked on the fact there were no bookings so not opening. The food was good an plentiful. The staff very helpful and friendly. I can only assume the fact it is mid October and end of season it doesn't need to be open as much. Overall, I loved my stay at De Barge Hotel and have recommended it several times already.

    Unique hotels in Bruges

    Enjoyed staying at de barge. Unique place to stay. The breakfast was great. It is not a five star place but clean in a nice area an easy walk to the centre of town. Quarters are tight and there is a slight musty smell but otherwise enjoyed. One of our party was very nervous staying on the barge as she is prone to seasickness and claustrophobia, but ended up having the best sleep of her holiday. The barge is fixed sonthere is no movement.

    An ok stay, but didn’t feel romantic

    Friendly staff, the outside of the barge looks nice. There isn’t great footpaths to access the centre however it is only a short distance. I feel for the price we paid £104, the room was certainly not luxurious enough, they could definitely do with updating, a bit more care and attention and some more quality fixtures and fittings. The beds were comfy and when you led in bed with the windows open looking across the canal it was really quite nice. If the quality of the room or the price was a fair bit lower I would probably stay again. However I personally could not stay again as they have terrified lobsters barbarically kept in a tank with there claws bound together which is to upsetting for me to see and I know this would put a lot of other people of staying.

    Great stay, interesting hotel.

    Was a great stay . Bruge is wonderful. Liked the nautical barge, great buffet breakfast although better explanation of equipment would help. Room a bit dusty and gritty on floor. Water not hot in evening, but would stay again. I

    Christmas Market stay December 2018

    Delightful character hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Could not have been more hospitable. Quiet and calm on the canal. Occasional working barges pass silently adding to the character of staying on a boat. Rooms comfortable for a cabin. Breakfast choice good for limited space. Cooked, continental, fruit and cereal choices. Evening meal good and very substantial; especially if you have a starter as well. Enjoyable walk to and from the town. a few minutes passage through the paths and streets that you have come to visit. Easy access to the city. Overall, the best reference is that I would go back there in a heartbeat. Couple of free parking spaces and free Wi-Fi. Loved it, Quirky and fun.

    A really quirky hotel...right up our street (or canal). Loved the fact that our emergency exit was via the window into the canal - life-jackets supplied - loved the fact we didn't have to try it out too! Parking nearby at the station was recommended as you would be lucky to find it outside, but we left the car there the whole stay for a reasonable price, especially when compared with parking in Edinburgh! The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were good, with lots of choice. If you are looking for something different in Bruges, within walking distance (half an hour) of the very centre, do consider this. We would definitely come back.
