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.
