Doing a quick weekend blast in a couple of weeks. Need recommendations on B+Bs in Amsterdam, Nurbergring, and Luxumbourg please. Biker friendly and a good brekky essential.
Cheers all

The Bikers Loft is great; real bike culture and some very good bands. But avoid the dorm there; loads of drunks roll in shouting and bawling during the early hours and that's no joke.

I couldn't find stealth camping nearby, and official camping is far away and too expensive. The Loft isn't cheap either.

Handy for Bruges.

If you roll in on a boxy, overlandy bike, expect some sideways looks. It's nearly all sports bike people. But they are OK in the end, once they overcome their "shyness".

Thanks everyone. I found a site through one of the replys, www.MOBIKEHOTEL.com - motorvakantie en fietsvakantie in Europa - de beste motorhotels en fietshotels! . They seem to have biker hotels all over the place.

Thanks again

Yes, but be aware that none of these hotels is special to motorcyclists, and the prices are the same for anyone. There seems to be no advantage for a rider in using this list. And prices of 50-175 euros don't seem attractive?

This site you give a link for doesn't mention the Belgian Bikers' Loft, which is a dedicated biker place, and it doesn't mention the dedicated places for m/cyclists in France. The site gives a list of French hotels which say they are "sympathetic" to riders, but then every hotel is "sympathetic" to clients. No need to restrict yourself to that site, for it leaves out so much.
