A charming central Bruges retreat with 15th-century roots

Luxury hotel in Bruges

  • Charming 15th-century converted convent on Den Dijver Canal in central Bruges
  • Past meets present as antiques sit within a fresh, airy colour scheme
  • Canal-side terrace for high tea in summer and roaring fires in winter

Hotel de Orangerie

Set beside the Den Dijver Canal, yet minutes from must-see sights, Hotel de Orangerie is both elegant hideaway and city break boutique. Engravings, tapestries, silk-lined curtains and antiques infuse this former 500 year-old convent with nostalgic charm. While the hotel’s cloistered history and romantic ambience echoes the surrounding Flemish architecture.

Enjoy breakfast or an English afternoon tea of pastries and finger sandwiches on the waterfront terrace. Get cosy in the oak-panelled dining room. Then settle down by the open fire with a pot of fresh coffee – or a sparkling aperitif. In the winter garden lounge, there’s a collection of art books and international magazines to dip into as you relax. When evening comes, dress for dinner in your opulently designed bedroom, softly lit by beautifully swathed windows.

Step outside Hotel de Orangerie and you’re in the heart of the city. Go from the celebrated Absolute Art Gallery to the Groeningemuseum, and on to Basilica of the Holy Blood. A short stroll then takes you on to Bruges Belfry and the lively Market Square. You could also explore the old city by canal boat, gondola or horse-drawn carriage – before dining in one of Bruges’ many gourmet restaurants.
