My Brother and I spent two nights here whilst visiting Ypres battlefields, memorials, and cemeteries. The accommodation and cooked breakfast was first class as was the service provided by Christa and her Partner, which included organising a taxi for us and running us to town when the taxi was not available so we didn't miss the Menin Gate Ceremony.

Only had one night here but really enjoyed the stay. Friendly and welcoming host. The property is realy nicely presented and is only a 15 minute walk to the city centre (Menin Gate etc). Rooms were very comfortable. Would have loved to have spent another day or two there. Recommended.

What a wonderful overnight break on the outskirts of Ypres (Iepers). We arrived early but the friendly host gave us the key so that we could get in after attending the moving 8pm ceremony at the Menin Gate. Great room, wonderful and friendly service and a fabulous breakfast. Highly recommended.

Great little hotel, very friendly helpful hosts. Clean rooms, great shower in ours (George room). Guests have the run of the hotel, sitting room, bar ,garden, kitchen etc, all done on a trust basis. Very refreshing. Would definately stay again.
