It is easy to travel around the Netherlands especially as the train service is extensive.
Brugge is a nice Belgian town and quite a compact place to visit. Antwerp is one of my favourite cities. It has 100's of interesting cafes and bars. If you purchase a tram card it is very easy to travel around using the network of trams.
Hotels - I have booked accommodation using http://www.bookings.nl There are sometimes excellent special offers here for decent hotels. The Golden Tulip chain are also quite nice http://www.goldentulip.nl/ and have special packages (cooking weekends,shopping weekends,spa weekends etc) - see under special offers.
Hope this helps
