EXTRAVAGANTLY DECORATED AND ELEGANTLY REGAL – just like the graceful birds that Die Swaene takes its name from – this old-fashioned luxury hotel is a timeless classic.
Picture-perfect Bruges is a honey pot for loved-up visitors looking for a slice of history with their Belgian city break and this small family-run hotel is a brilliant place to spoil yourselves.
Situated on one of medieval Bruges’s most picturesque canals, only a few minutes from the famous Market Square, Die Swaene is a 30-bedroom boutique hotel soaked in history and decorated to reflect the heritage of the surrounding streets in vintage Belgian style.
Classical decor, rich velvets and antique furniture create grand fairytale interiors throughout the hotel. Cosy up with a cognac in the majestic lounge that dates from 1779 when it was home to the Guild of Tailors and has a preserved painted ceiling that’s worth the inevitable crick in the neck to admire.
Across the canal from Die Swaene’s original building is a new wing called The Canal House, which has eight rooms and two suites as well as a sunny terrace. Guests can choose to eat in the popular Pergola Kaffee restaurant and dine on Michelin Bib Gourmand standard seafood and regional cuisine in the cosy conservatory or head down into the old vaulted 17th century wine cellars to enjoy their meal.
Back in the main hotel, you can relax in the sauna, swim in the covered rooftop pool or read books in the cosy library surrounded by rich wood panelling.
Bedrooms and suites are stuffed with elegant antiques and guests can opt for standard or deluxe rooms in arrange of quirky designs. Bag a canal view by booking one of the Junior suites or splash out big style the regal Royal Suite, which appropriately features a king-sized bed adorned in rich cardinal reds.
