“Nice town house, good position, had a great stay”

Opaal is situated in a quiet side road but only a short walk to the sights of Bruges. Martine greeted us and explained everything and was very helpful - we were only her 3rd party of guests but everything was spot on for us.

Opaal is a nice house, and has everything you want or need for a short break or a week away. The twin rooms are a little snug with the bottom bed pulled out, but were fine for us, and everything else was great. I would use it again if I am lucky enough to return to Bruges.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend and book again when we visit Brugge again.

The owner keeps the booking procedure simple and is very responsive to emails which is reassuring.

He offered and collected us from the train station on our arrival and the 'do's and dont's' are very clear, reasonable and easy to understand. Plus, if there are any problems (which there wasn't) you have his details to hand.

Good value, good location and clean.

“Comfortable and convenient”

All communications with Johan were fast, efficient and friendly throughout. Right up to and including being picked up from the station on our arrival and being introduced to the house.
Although on a small footprint the house is thoughtfully laid out and feels extremely spacious.
There is an easy walk into the centre of town from either end of the street in around 5 minutes or so. With a bus stop a few hundred metres away it was easy to get back to the station, which we used on our way home and to make a trip to the coast for the day.
Beds were comfortable, English TV channels available and wi-fi connection good. We also liked th full sized bath and the handy ground floor cloakroom. The house is exactly as shown in the photos. If we return to Bruges for another stay, we'd certainly book this property again. Well done Johan, we had a great time.

Met at the Railway Station by Johann, perfect position, good shower and kitchen, comfortable beds. What more can you say. Everything was close by including the Laundromat and a number of restaurants that served a great Belgian beer.everything is within walking distance which is a bonus because Belgian hospitality demands that you walk it off. Opaal is an interesting building in an interesting city.

The Opaal house was a great little place. It was close to everything but in a quiet street. We were able to park the car around 9 mn away from the house so absolutely perfect. Johan was really helpful when we needed his help. All in all a great stay.

Liked best: Great location - Johan was very helpful at all times - Small house but with all the mod cons
Liked least: House was a bit dirty in places (inside drawers or shelves in cupboards, etc...) . It needed a deep clean eventhough it looked ok at first glance.
