hotel republic ltd has added yet another hotel chain to its ever growing portfolio.Martin’s Hotels in Belgium offer 55 meeting rooms spread over 12 hotels in 8 different cities in Belgium. They have hotels in Brussels, Mechelen, Leuven, Genval, Bruges, Waterloo, Tubize and Rixensart. The famous Chateau du Lac Hotel near Brussels has a ballroom for 1050 delegates. All hotels share the same “family spirit” combining kindness and efficiency, serenity and creativity, respect for traditions and modern comfort.
Kai Schomann – Managing Director at hotel republic ltd says:
“We are very pleased that Martin’s Hotels have chosen us to represent them here in the UK. Belgium is within easy reach of the UK thanks to Eurostar. Also a lot of our meetings have international delegates coming from central Europe and Brussels is in easy reach by car making it a really good central location for meetings. ”
Martins Hotels was founded in 1980. John Charles Martin, a third-generation Martin, took over the management of the family business and came up with the idea – visionary at the time - of converting the 'Castle Schweppes' into a 5-star hotel hosting a conference centre: the by-now legendary 'Martin's Château du Lac'. The 'Martin's Hotels' hotel group was born! Over the years, with John C. Martin holding the reins, the group has gone from strength to strength. It now boasts no fewer than 12 hotels and three restaurants, as well as the Martin'Spa, considered as one of Europe’s most beautiful spas.
Antoine Deckers, who is the newly appointed Director for Corporate and MICE says: “We are opening 2 new properties in 2016 and 2017and therefore we are now taking further steps to expand Martin’s Hotels into important international markets and the UK is definitely of great interest to us. We have been in touch with hotel republic for several years and they have been recommended to us by various other properties here in Brussels. We hope to gain access to the key MICE partners in the UK who will book our hotels in Belgium. We are also aiming to get into the sport group business for our new Martin’s Red Hotel that is opening this year in Tubize. ”
The hotels are in 8 different Belgium cities and have great space for meetings, conferences, car launches, incentives and team-building events. The following Hotels are part of Martin’s Hotels to name but a few:
