Hotel Welkom - Damme, Bruges

2 star Hotel Bruges

Damse Vaart Noord 34 - Bruges

Price starting from 80.00
Stop at the Hotel Welkom during your West Flanders travel. A family-run affordable Damme hotel, it is a great place to stay on a weekend break from Antwerp or Brussels, or as a stopover before taking a passenger ferry from the Port of Zeebrugge to the United Kingdom.

The Hotel Welkom is run by a local woman who grew up in her family's tavern along the Damme canal, called the Damse Vaart. In 1991 she and her husband began construction of a family hotel next to the tavern. Today the hotel and tavern are a popular stop especially for those on cycling tours, with its classy indoor bar and outdoor terrace serving meals, snacks, and 99 different varieties of beer. Amenities also include complimentary wireless Internet access.

The hotel is located 10 minutes by car from the historic town of Damme, which was the site of the Battle of Damme between the English and the French in 1213. You can trace the pattern of the star-shaped fortifications that once protected the town by looking for the lines of poplar trees and a moat in places. Damme is also known as a book town and a destination for boat trips. From the Hotel Welkom it's just 4.4 miles/7 kilometers to the seaside resort of Knokke-Heist, 8.8 miles/14 kilometers to the historic city center of Bruges, and 10.6 miles/17 kilometers to the Port of Zeebrugge.

Nice surroundings and friendly owners but noisy inside the hotel (doors only close by a strong pull) and from the outside (rooms either face the nearby highway or a cobbled road; both very loud). Small rooms, no German TV channel (almost 25 channels overall), mattresses too soft->backache
