Stayed here for two nites during the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. 100,000 converged on the town! The rooms are small and simple but the service was great even with the chaos. You couldn't ask for a better location to visit the Lion Mount or La Haye Sainte etc. kudos to Claudia and the staff.

This must be the best location to stay for a visit to the historic battlefield - just a short walk to the Lion Monument and the visitor centre. My room was simple but well furnished and the value for money was excellent. The hotel staff were most helpful

Booked a 5 night stay here to do an in-depth recce of the Waterloo Campaign in preparation for accompanying a coach to the bicentennial event, Waterloo 200. I came with a number of friends whose main intent was to have a good time, explore the battlefield and to wind me up. They're still mates. We stayed at Hotel 1815 on... More

I only ate breakfast here, but the staff was great, and the hotel, overlooking the battlefield at Waterloo, struck me as excellent. All of Wallonia, alas, is a little shabby, and the edges of the hotel are not perfect, by any means, but the service is very good and you cannot beat having Waterloo out the front door. Otherwise, you... More

The main advantage of this hotel is the true historical location you find yourself in, right on the main battle lines. The down side is it has a captive market at present hence the 100 euro tariff plus 11.32 euros for breakfast and not forgetting the 5 euros for wi fi. I imagine the price will double next year for...

Dear Sir, We thank you for your stay. We are surprised with your comment, it is true that we are a 3-star Hotel and that we have no air conditioning, all our rooms were renovated and the decoration is not "heavy" as you say it in your message. The bed are new. The house is 100-years old and we wanted... More

There’s no doubt about it: the ultimate selling point of this hotel is its location. Situated right at the crossroads which marked the centre of the Duke of Wellington’s line, there simply cannot be a better base from which to explore the battlefield of Waterloo. Step outside the door from reception and you’re literally on the battlefield, in an area... More

Set within easy walking distance of the Butte du Lion (Lion Mound) visitor centre and a few yards from the site of Wellington’s tree (now long gone), the hotel has plenty of parking at the rear for guests. We were pleasantly surprised when we were shown to our accommodation which fronted on to the car park. Our room was in... More

My wife and I planned to stay 2 nights, but to be honest there isn't enough to do in Waterloo to make it worthwhile. The hotel is pleasant but lacking in refinement. The front was affected by building work on the road and it all looked a bit messy. The wifi just didn't work, it looked as if we had... More

The location of this hotel cannot be beaten if you are interested in the Battle of Waterloo, however when my son and I travelled there this July (2014), it was hotter than any room I have ever been in. The only time I can remember being hotter and more comfortable is camping in Sicily more than thirty years ago! In... More
