Quick trip to Bruges, which is a lovely place well preserved and charming. The Hotel Martin's - hmmmmm, lets see. I did not book this one, I had business nearby and some associates booked this hotel for me. Very nice location, quiet, central
Minor annoyance at check in as my name was wrong on the reservation which meant the wifi did not work and I was in a hurry so this was just an unnecessary hold up.
A colleague had stayed in this hotel previously and had a lovely canalside or riverside room which I did not get so that was annoying (and pathetic, I know!).
After a business dinner, I spent a very convivial evening in the hotel bar / lounge / library which had a very decent selection of beers and whisky
The hotel amenities were fine, slightly dated but everything in working order
Breakfast room very pleasant and a full selection of drinks, juices, and all types of food for breakfast. Service in the breakfast room was a bit slack but overall in the hotel I found the staff friendly and attentive
The value for money box got ticked as I found the Martin's Relais good value on the company tariff I received from our business partners
So all in all, not spectacular but very nice location, well fitted out if dated, decent staff, nice bar lounge and worthy of a very good rating in my opinion
