We spent 3 wonderful days in Bruges and stayed in this beautiful hotel. Staff were very courteous and the service was outstanding especially from Frederick, in Front Office. Thank you to all who have made our stay a very enjoyable one.

We spent 3 days at this beautiful hotel and could not have been happier. The service was outstanding. Extremely helpful and made excellent recommendations on restaurants and activies. The location is perfect. Close enough to the Market but far enough away from any noise or traffic. We especially enjoyed sitting in the garden in the evening. Would highly recommend.

If you like modern, plastic fantastic, soul-less hotels with rude staff then this hotel is NOT for you! We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and loved it. The room, with canal view, was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel itself is full of character and charm and the staff are genuinely pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful... More

This was a lovely hotel with an excellent location. Friendly and helpful staff. Room was lovely, a good size with a fantastic bathroom. The only thing I didn't like was the stressed looking parrot sat in a cage opposite reception. The poor bird had pulled out his stomach feathers and was nervous of people near him. It made you feel... More

Coco is an African grey, she was born in 1977 and hand reared by Mr. Hugo D. She lived with him for 24 years until Hugo’s age forced him to move to a nursing home. Coco... More

We stayed at the Martin's Relaise in Bruges for three nights. The location is great, in Van Eyck Square, an easy walk to the main square and anything you want to see in Bruges. We arrived by train and it is a 15 minute bus ride from the train station to the hotel, but once you are there you can... More

My husband and I booked a trip for our wedding anniversary via Eurostar and chose this hotel based on its location. We were not disappointed! We were given room 25 which is 2nd floor garden view with gorgeous little decked balcony. Unfortunately, the room safe wasn't working and although the hotel offered us the use of hotel safe, we asked... More

the hotel is run down and in need of updating. I appreciate its history but new carpet, paint, bedding are dearly needed. It is in a lovely location in Bruges, walking distance to everything you would want to do. I would suggest getting a room faced the inner courtyard if you want quiet. This hotel has huge potential.

Dear Lisaleslie, Thank you for the time you took to share your experience on Tripadvisor. I am glad to read that –even though you did not like every aspect of the hotel- you have appreciated the history of our building and its location. As our building is a classified monument, we are not allowed to do big renovation works. We... More

Very nice location, quiet, central Minor annoyance at check in as my name was wrong on the reservation which meant the wifi... More

Martin's Relais is an ideal location for a visit to Brugge. It is situated a few blocks from the main square of Brugge, not too close too be noisy but not to far to walk. The atmosphere is relaxing with its old world charm. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The rooms are large and ours had a lovely... More

We booked a canal view double and spent 3 nights here. Wow the room was fantastic. Very large spacious room with huge bathroom. We had a canal view from the main room and bathroom overlooked the garden. Opening windows gave us wonderful airflow. The bed was exceptional as was all bedding and linen. We chose not to include breakfast as... More
