Absolutely Awesome BnB in Bruge

For my birthday Cowie and I went to Bruge on the Eurostar. Apart from Cowie almost being sick in a granny's hat on the train our journey was smoothness encapsulated. Within 4 hours of leaving London we were unpacking our kit in the most idylic BnB.

Absoluut Verhulst is beautifully looked after and run by a delightful couple with an eye for detail. The house exudes comfort and taste. We had a suite on the top two floors which you can see below.

Benno & Frieda are great hosts and make a tremendous breakfast. Benno's omelet is particularly good and has no end of praise lauded over them in the visitors's book.

It's only a short walk from the centre of town... although that's probably true of most places in Bruge!

Freida very kindly booked us into Cafedraal for my birthday and suggested Rock-Fort/Bar Salon as well. Both were excellent and will be reviewed soon.

If you're heading to Bruge... stay at Absoluut Verhulst.

Great tip. Funnily enough, I was thinking about a trip to Bruges only a week or so ago. It's been overtaken by events now, but I'll keep a note of this for some other time.

It's such a cool place. Amazing restaurants. And if you need somewhere to stay then the loft at Absolut Verhlust is great.

We'll post our restaurant reviews up as soon as we can!

Sounds like you had a lovely time in Bruges. Here in Fife we can now get an overnight ferry to Belgium, I will have to start saving for a long weekend soon. I caught the Hairy Bikers on UKTVFood the other night and they were in Belgium too. Did you get any nice Chocolates?

Belgium was great fun. You'd love it Angela. And I can't recommend Absolut Verhlust enough. There are so many awesome restaurants you'd better starve yourself in advance!
