In the heart of Bruges, next to the historic brewery of Bruges, lies Gallery Guesthouse (formerly known as B&B Den Witten Leeuw). Our guesthouse consists of two houses, one dating back to 1570 and one dating back to 1797. The houses still have many old features and these are combined with modern day design and comfortable new furniture and beds. Downstairs we also host an art gallery. The breakfast room contains a cosy fireplace, a sunny conservatory and a veranda with view on the garden. Breakfast consists of several egg dishes, freshly pressed orange juice, freshly baked breads, croissants, danish, home-made jams, Belgian speciality cheeses, cold cuts of gammon, salami etc. We also provide fruit, yoghurt, cereals, fresh leaf tea ("English Breakfast") of high quality, fresh bean coffee and espresso and the possibility to make cappuccino or to ask for a hot chocolate (made from Belgian chocolate).
All rooms have new high quality AUPING beds and have their own private bathroom with either shower or bath (or both). The budget room ("Garden") has it's own private bathroom too with walk-in shower, but it's on the other side on the corridor. Bath robes are available.
