Well to say Bruges is picturesque at this time of year is an understatement! The squares, shops and traditional log cabin market stalls twinkle with festive allure and the smell of mulled wine and scrumptious food fills the air. The sound of the horse and carts making their way through the cobbled streets add to the wonderful atmosphere and the Belfry reminds you when it's time to find a local bar stocked with 400+ Belgian Beers to soothe your weary legs!!
A group of 4 of us made our way to Bruges on 6th Dec for a Christmas Shopping weekend. We went on euro star and the journey there was excellent. The Martins was our hotel of choice and is modern, comfortable and centrally located for exploring. The hotel staff are friendly and there is a lovely seating area with a stunning fire place to take the wait off your feet when you return back from a day around town.
We did not eat in the hotel, however the selection of continental breakfast looked excellent and fair value.
We had a bad experience with the hotel hot water and found on a couple of occasions that the water was stone cold in the mornings. Although a complaint to the hotel manager was necessary, they acknowledged the problem and saw it fit to compensate for the inconvenience.
The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and furnishings attractive. The hotel is kept clean and has a lovely aroma of scented candles and oils that fill the corridors.
Bruges is not cheap but the hotel is reasonably priced and a very good 3 star rating. I would not hesitate to return!
