We missed the B&B the first time down the street. It's on a canal with a one-way street - just go slowly or make another pass around the block if you miss it. We had arranged for our car to be parked in the on-site garage, but it was a bit too long so we were obliged to pay for street parking. Make sure you find the parking machine on the street & leave the ticket in your window.

It was a fairly short walk into the main square & to the main attractions - (the longest walk was maybe 20-30 minutes to the Church of Our Lady which housed the Michalangelo statue). Luc was very nice but seemed to be late for a function. He helped us up to our room (up a tight spiral staircase) and showed us around before leaving. Our internet did not work which was a little problem - we had planned on this. Luc said that he'd been having problems with it. I overheard another guest ask whether he could use his personal computer, which he had allowed.

Breakfast was very nice. The floors were really squeaky particularly if trying to quietly tiptoe to the hallway bathroom in the middle of the night. It was a nice old canal house - it looked very historic. The shower was pretty cool - numerous jets and music - but in a shared shower room. Overall a really nice, comfortable stay. Bring your raincoats & umbrellas, though - we had really chilly, wet weather in Sept!

Room Tip: The family room had 2 double beds & was quite spacious for 4.

We stayed for 2 nights in September 2012 . This is a great location, close to the center of town but far enough away from the noisy crowds. We had a large room with a view of the canal and a large comfortable bed.
Luc is a wonderful host who is very friendly and helpful. He picked us up at the train station and the whole way back to his lovely home he kept pointing out places we should see , shops we should visit and some history of the town. The boat tours of the canals pass right in front of his residence. When we departed he dropped us back off at the train station and wished us good luck on the rest of our trip. We felt like he treated us like one of his family.

We stayed at Sint Andries Cruyse in Bruges for one night in July, what a charming guesthouse! The location is perfect, overlooking the canal, close to the main square, yet away from the crowds. Most places in Bruges require a 2-night minimum over the weekend, but since our schedule only permitted one night, I was referred to Sint Andries Cruyse by another hotel. I am so glad we were introduced to this lovely spot. Luc responded promptly to my many inquiries by e-mail, and called me when he was at the train station to pick us up. Unfortunately we had missed our connection in Antwerp, but he was very understanding. (Tip: Tell the train manager if you have a connection, so they can hold the train for you. We learned this too late.) We took a cab from the train station, and he met us at the guest house.

We stayed in the family room, which is huge and overlooking the canal. It has a separate bath, but it is dedicated for that room. The giant bed and pillows were very comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful - coffee, juice, fruit, breads and sweet rolls, cheese, meats, eggs, yogurt, plus a variety of spreads including speculoos! There are complimentary sodas and beer, as well as fruit, snacks, and chocolates for during the day. There was a TV, puzzles and games in the room, and guidebooks and information about attractions are available as well.

Luc was really welcoming and even takes a picture of all his guests. When he drove us to the train station, he pointed out buildings, city entrances, and told us more about the history of Bruges. We really enjoyed our stay here.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in May. Luc and Marie were incredible hosts -- very friendly and eager to please. We stayed in the family room which was very comfortable and more space than we needed. Four people would be very comfortable there. The only negative was the shared bathroom, mainly because we didn't expect it and because we had a full house on the nights we stayed. The location is really fantastic -- only about 5 minutes to the main square and away from all the tourists. The oldest bar in Bruges -- Cafe Vlissinghe, which has been continuously operating since 1515, is just steps away. Other good restaurants are also very close as well. The breakfast was great and on our last morning, Luc took us to the train station and gave us a little tour of Bruges along the way. All in all a very memorable stay.

Room Tip: I would ask if any of the rooms have a private bath.

My wife, son (10), and I spent two night here in late June (26 and 27), and we very much enjoyed our stay. The location is very nice; right on a canal and a very short walk to the Burg and the Market Square. Our room, the family room, was extremely spacious, with two queen or king sized beds. There was also a little sitting area, a nice TV, and windows overlooking the canal. Our private bathroom had a very nice shower, with it's own stereo and body jets. We were the only people staying there at the time, so the house was very quiet. We looked at the other rooms, and they were as nice as ours, but perhaps not as large.

Luc, the proprietor, was an excellent host. He served breakfast for us each morning, chatted with us some, but generally left us to be on our own. Breakfast was croissants, ham, cheese, eggs, toast with jam, fresh juice, etc. There were always snacks available, and Coke and beer were there for us whenever we were thirsty. As we did not have a cell phone, we did not take Luc up on his offer to pick us up at the train station (the cab ride was short and inexpensive), but we did have him take us and our extensive set of luggage to the station when we were moving on. It was a very nice perk.

If we return to Bruges, I would not hesitate to stay here again. It met all of our needs beautifully.

Room Tip: The family room is very large, but there is some street noise when the windows are open. It overlooks the canal. Stairs are steep.
