TUCKED INTO A TREE-LINED BACKSTREET just steps away from the canals, the Pand Hotel oozes character, comfort and timeless charm. High on style, this former 18th century carriage house is cool, quirky yet wonderfully traditional.
An intimate haven in the heart of Bruges, Pand Hotel heaves with art, antiques and collectibles. Kick back by the open fire in the pine panelled library, lined with interesting old books and Louis Vuitton trunks, or down a nightcap in the low-lit bar with its mahogany furniture, moody shades of aubergine and leather Chesterfield.
You’ll find all the inviting warmth of a private house, matched by the amenities of a top boutique hotel. Outside the pretty breakfast room, there’s a sunshine filled courtyard complete with fountain – just the place for summertime drinks.
Guests swear it’s worth staying at Pand Hotel just for the breakfasts. Served with silver teapots and hand embroidered napkins, these famous repasts include eggs cooked to order on an old-fashioned Aga, freshly baked bread and juices – all accompanied by a glass of champagne to ensure you start the day in style.
Pand Hotel’s beautifully detailed bedrooms are a treat. Beautifully decorated Junior suites with canopied beds are done out in Ralph Lauren fabrics, while granite and marble jacuzzi bathrooms sport upmarket Annick Goital body care products. Higher rooms have great views over the city’s rooftops and church spires – and you’ll love the Belgian choccies with evening turndown.
Minutes from the city’s main square, the boutique hotel is perfectly located to enjoy the best of Bruges. While there’s no restaurant, staff are more than happy to recommend some great places to dine out.
Pand Hotel’s art and antique collector owners have lavished TLC on this elegant private mansion – and it glows. Top-notch service and welcoming staff make it one of THE places to stay in medieval Bruges.
