I'm in 2 minds as to how to review this hotel, it's quaint oldness is betrayed by what I've now come to expect as a certain standard in many a modern hotel. The rooms are old, and they look it. Dated antique furniture, along with low sitting beds (2 singles pushed together) and uncomfortable cushion style pillows makes for not...

What a great location this hotel enjoys, right on the canal and even after more than a few very strong beers can be found easily. The hotel had a lovely charm about it and the Christmas decor was excellent and really added to the appeal. The room was very large and the bathroom was huge, we traveled in a group...

We stayed for 3 nights and thought it was a great hotel. Staff are so helpful and friendly. We stayed in a comfort room (30), which was a good size with a big bathroom. My only criticism would be the bed (2 singles pushed together) which moved during the night on the wooden floor, and the shower didn't have enough...

If I am honest, I am not sure if this is charming and quaint or just old and tired. The building is fantastic, built on the canal front and is very charming. The lounge rooms are quaint with nice open fireplaces and sofas. The rooms have massive double beds. They are quite soft, so if you are fussy, this may...

This hotel was beautiful and full 9f old world charm. The room was small but very cosy. Complete with a balcony with beautiful views. The room had tea and coffee facilities and was only a 5 minite stroll to the square. There was a nice cafe called tatties across from the hotel which was good for snacks and breakfast

Enjoyed our 2 night stay at Martin's Relais. Good location, only a short five minute walk to the Market. The hotel is not modern but is clean and well appointed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

Central location for the old town, all amenities accessible, lovely building, excellent staff and room. Quite expensive but surprised at how expensive Bruges was. Cost extra for car parking and extra for breakfast, so making it an even more expensive stay. Average cost for breakfast and lunch for four of us £50. Dinner £150.

Such a great stay at this beautiful boutique hotel. We had a unique room (#51 I believe) that had a door just outside the main door to the hotel but inside the gate. You went up these old stairs to this beautiful room with fireplace, double windows and a huge newly renovated bathroom. It was wonderful. Didn't see the other...
