        Velotel Brugge Reviews

        Guest reviews are submitted by our customers after their stay at Velotel Brugge

        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Restaurant excellent. Good taxi service into Bruges.

          Dark reception area. Room too hot. Twin beds on a Valentine special!!

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          The hotel was situated in its own grounds and quite modern; breakfast buffet was excellent. Rate was excellent

          The evening meals in the restaurant were buffets, without an a la carte menu although this was advertised, buffet was put on due to large numbers of coach parties (5) staying in the hotel. Had to wait until 8.45pm to get a table. Hotel was quite a long way out of Bruge and little local transport meaning had to use taxies or 45 minute walk into city. Though it was closer to centre from website.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          Good bar and restaurant. Clever and cheaper taxi voucher scheme makes getting to city centre very good.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The location was perfect because we wanted to do a lot of walking. The restaurant and bar with fire place were awesome. Nice and cozy. The food was very good. Even though parking cost 9 Euro per day, we felt very safe to leave our car in a cordoned off parking area.

          The room was kind off run down. However, that's the fault of the guests because they don't take care of other peoples property. A newer model tv would be a good idea.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Everything was very easy and relaxed, a short drive to the motorway and a short walk into town, really nice.

          Only one room key, thats the only thing I can think off, it is a very nice hotel.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          We didn't have breakfast because of the price so I can't comment on it but it would have to be something pretty special to be worth 15 euros each (or 22 euros if you didn't book in advance)

        • Single
          5.4

          Staff were friendly and generallyhelpful when asked. Access to wi fi without additional charge (very important)

          No convenient economic snacks E.G. coffee in room. Standards of dish washing in restaurant was uneven. Poor/limited choice of food when arriving at breakfast at 9.00 A.M. fiirst day. Minibar in room did not work - desk staff did not respond well to fix the situation. Television in room old and difficult to use

        • Single
          9.6

          Nice place and well worth the money. For me as our customers are situated nearby the location is great and relatively close to the city centre.

          The breakfast buffet was good but expensive, a basic meal shouldnät cost 18 euro.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Very clean hotel, nice room, nice buffet. Shuttle to and from the city center is very convenient.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          The staff were very friendly and, in so far as they were able, very helpful.

          The hotel self assessed itself as 4 Star but the basic facilities were not 4 Star; they were at best 3 Star and, in some cases were merely 2 Star.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          Friendly, amenable staff. Comfortable, clean rooms.

          Location - a bit far to wander into town at this time of year and up to €12 for a single taxi fare (vouchers reducing this to €9 not always available) pricey. We also felt that car parking as an extra charge was a bit cheeky, as was a surcharge to upgrade from twin beds pushed together to a double for €15/night.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          The staff were very helpful, the hotel had plenty of areas to have a quiet sit down and relax, or very modern bar area with food served until 11pm,

          The beds were very ucomofrtable, hence having just a mattress with a topper on it, the room was very small and cramped, hence me and my husband were in each others way, especially as im not very mobile and needed bit room,,,this room was said to have tea making facilities and was reconfirmed on phone later, turned out it didnt and couldnt get a drink either very late, the bathroom has no ventilation and gets very wet and slippery, hence I had a bad slip while there, also any clothng you leave in there while using gets soaked due to amount steam etc. also the view was awful we looked at other windows and huge old brick building, I felt for what we were offered it was overpriced id have paid more for the facilities to make us more comofrtable.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Very convenient location for us - between family and Brugge centre. The taxi deal was good. Staff are welcoming and helpful

          The lack of a facility to make a hot drink in the room, especially early morning. The large deposit that required paying.

        • Couple
          8.8

          We had a very nice stay thankyou. It was very relaxing

          Night time trips through the park with no lights

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Noise at night got a bit much as all the floors in the bedrooms are wood and people scraping chairs made quite a bit of noise at 2am in the morning, not good when you want to sleep. We asked for the light in the bathroom to be fixed as it was flashing all the time and this didn't get fixed. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay but wouldn't go back to the same hotel but we would return to Brugge.
