Had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Recour. Beautiful room with a gorgeous bath. Very stylish hotel with friendly staff. Close to the town square with plenty of restaurants and cafes. Just an hour from Dunkirk so perfect for a night away. Free parking. Already booked for a Valentines trip.

We spent a short weekend here, breaking up 2 weeks of work in Belgium. It is a nice little town with a few interesting restaurants and lots of WWI sites to visit in the surrounding area. The room was huge, with a cute little balcony. We had a hard time finding the light switches and how to work some other... More

We booked an arrangement for ten persons, five double rooms, quite posh and expensive. In advance an arrangement had been made by email for food and drinks (supper) in the additional Pegasus Restaurant. On arrival the reception in the hotel was not to standard as we had to climb up the steap stairs with our luggage and had to search... More

This hotel was very disappointing! Our room was in the new annex but hall is VERY dark. We had to use the front door and stairs instead of the elevator as it was not working. The main house is very dated and owner is far from friendly. Our second night there was no hot water - not much use of... More

We were in the area to tour WWI sites, breweries, and attend the triennial cat festival in Ypres. Because of the festival we couldn't get a room in Ypres, but Poperinge turned out to be a great location to see the surrounding area. It's at most a 15-minute drive to Ypres and just as convenient to sites not in Ypres... More

The rooms were tastefully decorated. Personel was perfect. Hospitalety is outstanding. Diner was perfect. It was not only of high standard/quality/taste, but also a feast for the eye. Hotel is close to certain landmarks, and just half an hour drive from the Coast/beach and France.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in July as part of a trip around the WW1 memorials, and have to say, I am so glad I booked this hotel - absolutely superb. My interaction with the hotel started a few weeks before we arrived for check in where I was just checking whether the parking was free... More

Beautiful rooms, nice atmosphere. Very pleasant people. Fantastic restaurant. We ate there two nights in a row. Quality food, great service. Not cheap (far from it), but worth it. Poperinge is a great spot from where to view the Ieper area (WW1).

We loved staying at Hotel Recour. The hotel is nice and quite with a good location. The staff was wonderful to us and even upgraded our room for free to a way nicer one! We took advantage of the lovely spa, and the nice restaurant down stairs. Our room was super cozy with a huge bed, AWESOME bath/shower, and even... More

I stayed here recently for a family get-together and to visit the WW1 Ypres Salient war sites. The hotel was delightful: very tastefully decorated with plenty of grand chandeliers, large fin de siècle furniture and a quirky winding wooden staircase. Connected to this is a very modern annexe housing the spa facilities and breakfast rooms. Our bedroom Calliope (no 3)... More
