A plush five-star Bruges break at a grand 15th-century former ducal residence, with spa access, luxe breakfast treats and Eurostar or Eurotunnel Le Shuttle travel

Bruges is one of the most romantic cities in Europe, famous for its handmade lace, decadent chocolate and historic looming towers. It’s even better when you stay at the dramatic five-star Hotel Dukes' Palace, a 15th-century former ducal residence that's rich in character and charm. Some rooms feature high ceilings and impressive original features – settings fit for royalty.

Spend your days meandering along charming canals and through picturesque cobblestone streets, before retreating to the hotel restaurant for classic Belgian fare with a modern twist. Later, linger late into the night over hand-crafted cocktails at the cosy bar. The next day, blow away any cobwebs with a reviving session in the lovely spa, well worth a visit for an energising massage and some quiet time. Unsurprisingly, Hotel Dukes' Palace is a TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice winner among Belgium's top listed luxury hotels.

Dining

Surrounded by walls adorned with a unique collection of paintings by local artists, Dukes' Restaurant is the ideal spot for classic dishes and refined Belgian cuisine, uplifted with a modern touch and seasonal produce.

Location

This concentrated city renders it easy to explore sights like Burg Square with the Basilica of the Holy Blood, and the 15th-century Belfry Tower in Market Square. Famous for its chocolate and lace shops, the centre is lined with an eclectic range of cafes and boutiques worth popping into to eye up the intricate material and sip on a mug of hot choccy.
