Staying | Bruges – Staying with the Duke…

After the era of the pandemic, it has been nice getting some normality back into day-to-day life. I know we’re still not out of the woods, but one of those norms that we’ve all been missing is travel, hotels and discovering new places, people and foods. And this quick city break in Bruges and Brussels was a fantastic entrée to all of that good stuff

So, where to start…?

The Dukes Palace

I had the pleasure of staying at the Dukes Palace in Bruges and I must say it was an amazing experience. From the moment I arrived, I was welcomed by the friendly and helpful staff. The hotel itself is a 5-star hotel and the rooms are absolutely beautiful.

The room I stayed in was spacious and had all the amenities I could have asked for. The bed was comfortable and the view from the window was stunning.

The staff at the Dukes Palace were incredibly accommodating and went out of their way to make sure I had a pleasant stay. They were always available to answer any questions I had and were more than happy to help me with anything I needed.

Overall, I had a wonderful stay at the Dukes Palace and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a luxurious and comfortable stay in Bruges. The staff were amazing and the hotel was beautiful. I would definitely stay here again!

A big thank you to all the team there


The Rooms

On day two the weather wasn’t on our side so instead of wasting the day, we asked the hotel if they would show us one of their best rooms for this post… After a few moments for get approval, we’re escorted to one of the most decadent rooms I’ve ever seen. Room 111.

We did get to see another room, however, Room 111 was the most impressive to shoot. You can see the other room in this reel as it was a bit more ‘clickbaity’ than our actual room (shhh!!) which was still amazing @hoteldukepalace.

The Spa

As it was still raining that morning, we decided to check out the Small in-house spa facilities. With no booking required guests can just roll up and use the Sauna, Steam, Himalayan Salt Shower and Red Light Therapy Rooms, and other spa usuals can be book in advance – on this particular day it was not staffed and the place was quiet—bonus!

Being a Spa, I didn’t take my camera in, but I did pop a couple of mobile shots off… Just not enough to really sell it. We got too carried away relaxing! Soz, but that’s a good thing 😉

Overall, this is a highly recommended stay on the higher and finer end of the medium to high budget scale. Well worth it and well located with restaurants, supermarket and sights all within walking distance.

A memorable stay and we’d love to go back
