A central stay in pretty Bruges, with Eurotunnel or Eurostar travel, luxury breakfast and chocolate tasting, as well as a museum discount card, single availability and Christmas market dates

Time has stood still on the medieval streets of Bruges. Belgium’s most-visited city is a postcard-perfect mix of traditional canals, bustling market squares and chocolate-box almshouses. It’s popular, but Bruges has more than enough personality to deserve its reputation as one of the prettiest and best-preserved cities in Europe.

The TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-awarded Hotel Montanus is an authentic Edwardian hotel located near the Church of Our Lady, with suitably grand architecture and decor. The building has a classical feel, with an imposing facade and entrance, but once you’re inside it’s a cool, calm and collected space with contemporary decor, chic en-suites and luxurious linens.

Dining

Breakfast is a grand affair, with the usual continental dishes accompanied by a fountain of famous Belgian chocolate, while lunch and dinner are no less decadent; pheasant and oysters grace the menu.

Location

The hotel is right in the centre of Bruges, within easy walking distance to several key destinations. Doorstep attractions include the Hans Memling Museum, the Church of Our Lady and the Groeningemuseum.
