My wife and I spent 3 nights at Hotel Recour at the start of a 10 ten-day visit to Belgium and France in early September. The hotel is beautiful and our room was spacious and very comfortable. Unlike other beds we've had in European hotels, our room (Erato) had a king sized bed. It also had a terrace overlooking the... More

The hotel had lots of character and is just off the main square. A very comfortable - and huge - bed in our room under the eaves. Decorated in a very individual and charming way. The decor was a bit tired and could do with refreshing. Some exposed wires on a plug by the wall; lovely stand-alone bathtub, but not... More

I generally prefer to stay in modern hotels, so it was rather a surprise to find how much I enjoyed my stay in Hotel Recour, which was furnished with period furniture. We had a lovely room with a very grand bathroom and a balcony that overlooked attractive gardens. We enjoyed the breakfast, which had locally-sourced food. We had a problem... More

When I booked I spoke to a helpful lady and we were looking forward to staying. On arrival we were greeted by an elderly gent who said were we staying for breakfast, a good evening would have been nicer. We went up the tiny slow lift to the room and we walked the staircase as the lift was full with... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights. We stayed in the annex and found it very comfortable - we'd read reviews here so it did not come as a disappointment or surprise. The restaurant was excellent - fine dining in beautiful period rooms. It's very near to Ypres and Passiondale (where there's a great museum about WW1 and reconstruction... More

Used booking.com, booked 'room with beams' at 4* Hotel Recour, Poperinge. We booked in at Hotel Recour, but we were taken across the road to 'Gastenkampers Recour' opposite a kebab house! A beautiful room away from the main hotel, no beams in sight, which was a disappointment! Checked our confirmation and we had been directed to less opulent accommodation. However,... More

We really enjoyed staying here. Our room was lovely with a huge - and very comfortable -double bed. Unfortunately, the shower was very slow to drain and leaked over the floor. Each room is different with interesting pictures and nicnacs to make them special. Everyone wasextremely friendly. Breakfast was excellent - if a little pricey. The location was excellent and...

Stayed one night in May whilst combining a battlefield visit with 2 nights in Bruges Superb comfortable hotel with an extremely good restaurant. Enjoyed the tasting menu with wines where we drank wines we would not normally have chosen. Extremely enjoyable dinner and friendly family service. Would strongly recommend and return. Would also recommend visiting Talbot House which is very... More

Those interested in the horrible events that happened to Flanders in WW I will have difficulties in grasping this review title. But, almost one century later, it's definitely possible. The city of Poperinge, in wartime located just behind the combat zones, nowadays offers a range of fine hotels, of which Recour is a notable one. One can choose from 3... More

Hotel Recour is attached to Restaurant Pegasus (which was the sign we saw from the direction we were driving, and indeed, drove past it), which is closed on Mondays. Tiny lift to the first floor (it fit me and a couple of suitcases, and that's it), or you can walk up an old, beautiful - but very steep - wooden... More
