Value for money: 4/5
For $65 AU per room, per night, the Cavalier is about five-minutes walk from the ice-skating ring and famous christmas markets that your girlfriend has been bugging you for years to take her to.

Cleanliness: 5/5
We couldn’t fault it. The owner is meticulous.

Facilities: 3/5
Free tasty breakfast and pots of coffee and tea. Free snow if you go near christmas. No wi-fi, but the lovely owner will draw you a map to a place called Bean Around the World. Walk there in five-minutes and enjoy a real American cappuccino made from a real American ex-pat who now lives in Bruges.

Location: 4/5
Five-minutes walk to the ice-skating ring, christmas markets, chocolate stores, beer barns, christmas lights… Guys, if you take your girlfriend here near christmas, you’re gonna do fine. It’s pretty much the perfect christmas present. Don’t worry, there are some nice little bars where you can try 178 different types of Belgium beer. Just make sure she’s seen all the lights and eaten enough chocolate first.

Staff: 5/5
Lovely lady owner who takes pride in her work and will tell you everything about Bruges.
