Stayed here for one week as we did a walking tour of the Ypres Salient Great War sites. Stayed in the Belfort one bedroom apartment. We were met at the station (a very nice bonus) and taken to the apartment and settled in. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Apartment is spacious for 2 with separate toilet, small but...

The Katherdral apartment is perfect for 2-4 people. It's really just a one bedroom, although there is a second "room" off of the main bedroom with 2 beds (bunk) in it. However, access to the toilet from the bunk room is through the main bedroom. And, access to the shower room from the main bedroom is through the bunk room.... More

We spent 2 nights in the 2 bed apartment. The apartment itself is lovely if a little quirky. Bedroom 2 is accessed via bedroom 1 en route to the shower and bathroom. Suitable for families rather than 2 couples as this room has bunk beds. The living space is stunning, spacious, well furnished and with a great view of the... More

Great location and I would recommend taking up the option of the garage for only €10 a night. Very clean, well-fitted out apartments, great for self catering. A great location for touring the Ypres Salient and only an hour from the Eurotunnel.

We stayed here one night on our trip to the Flanders Fields. The appartement is very nicely restored and is an excellent place for a family or two couples. The location next to the Menin Gate allows to see/hear the last post ceremony at 20:00 every day.

Stayed 3 nights in the 1 bedroom apartment.The location is great, just off the square for Menin Gate, Cloth Hall and all the bars, restaurants. The apartment has good facilities including AC, a large bed, separate wc. It is located on a road that can be a bit busy during the morning especially, so there is some traffic noise. This... More

We spent three nights at the Poorthuis in Ypres and had a great time. Ypres is a great place to begin your battlefield tours. The city is large enough to have good restaurants and shopping but not too big to be annoying. The apartment we had was on the top floor –Belfort Suite. It is very clean, well decorated and... More

We stayed in the Belfort for three nights as a surprise for my husband's birthday. The apartment had every amenity needed, was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It rained heavily on our first day but we were more than happy to relax in the apartment. The owners were easy to contact by email before we left and were friendly and... More

A beautiful apartment, but we thought it was stretching it rather to say it's a 4 person apartment! We stayed in the Cathedral apartment. There were 4 adults sharing. The double bedroom was fine, but the 'second' bedroom is really no more than a 'corridor' between the double bedroom and the bathroom. It is very very tiny, only enough space... More
