Hotel Heritage & Le Mystique (Bruges, Belgium)

The Place

Hotel Heritage is a luxurious 5-star boutique hotel situated right in the heart of one of Belgium’s most beautiful cities, Bruges. All the famous sights of this stunning mediaeval city are located on walking distance from the hotel.

The hotel was built in 1869 as a private mansion and transformed into a bank afterwards. In 1991, the property was acquired by Johan and Isabelle Creytens. The couple immediately fell in love with the grandeur and warm atmosphere of the building. After some extensive renovations, Hotel Heritage opened its doors in 1993. 

The rooms & design

The interior of Hotel Heritage is classical, yet stylish and sophisticated. High ceilings combine elegance with a spacious and luxurious feeling.

The rooms are cosy and romantic, with lots of fabrics and historical details,  and with the latest technology. There are 22 rooms in three categories: classic rooms (20m2), Deluxe rooms (25-30m2) and Junior suites (40m2).

There is also a wellness area with sauna, jacuzzi and fitness room, located in the vaulted cellars of the building.


Hotel Heritage is a member of the Relais & Châteaux group, which brings together the most prestigious boutique hotels and gourmet restaurants in the world. Today, more than 500 members combine great gastronomy with excellent hotel management and offer their guests unique hospitality experiences.

Hotel Heritage definitely fits into that philosophy. With the restaurant ‘Le Mystique’, located on the ground floor of the hotel, the hotel has one of the best upcoming gourmet restaurants in Bruges. Head Chef Gregory Slembrouck has been trained by some of Belgium’s most prominent chefs and combines refinement and creativity with excellent produce.

He and his team offer a wide choice of traditional French and Belgian dishes, combined and modernized with influences from all over the world.
