A plush Bruges break at the city's only five-star superior hotel, including spa access, breakfast treats, and Eurostar or Eurotunnel travel

Bruges is one of the most romantic cities in Europe, famous for its handmade lace, decadent chocolate and looming historic towers. It’s even better when you stay at the dramatic Hotel Dukes' Palace, the only five-star superior hotel in Bruges and a 15th-century former Ducal residence that's rich in character and charm. Some rooms feature high ceilings and impressive original features – settings fit for royalty.

Spend your days meandering along charming canals and through picturesque cobblestone streets, before retreating to the hotel restaurant for classic Belgian fare with a modern twist. Later, linger late into the night over hand-crafted cocktails at the cosy bar. The next day, blow away any cobwebs with a reviving session in the lovely spa, well worth a visit for an energising massage and some quiet time. Unsurprisingly, Hotel Dukes' Palace is a TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice winner among Belgium's listed luxury hotels, recently voted number three in the entire city.

Spa

Leave your frazzled self behind at the hotel’s rejuvenating spa, which houses a sauna, steam room, salt wall, UV and infra-red cabins, a fitness area and a massage treatment room. When it comes to treatments expect different types of massages, some with hot and cold stones. Elsewhere, there's a fully-equipped gym.

Location

You’ll be located in the gorgeous city centre of enchanting Bruges, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This concentrated city renders it easy to explore sights like Burg Square with the Basilica of the Holy Blood, and the 15th-century Belfry Tower in Market Square. Famous for its chocolate and lace shops, the centre is lined with an eclectic range of cafes and boutiques worth popping into to eye up the intricate material and sip on a mug of hot chocolate. Alternatively, opt for a cycling tour to explore the canals or stop for an afternoon pint in Damme – a lovely medieval town.
