I'm not going to say anything different from previous reviews. We stayed in the one bedroom flat (Plumer) for 2 nights. Our stay started with a friendly welcome from Benoit who told us the history of the house. I cannot imagine staying any closer to a major European landmark and the views from the flat were fantastic. I slept well... More

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Ypres this is it! We have stayed here twice, once as a couple and once with family. The house overlooks the Menin Gate and is a one minute walk to the main square. It is beautifully decorated and Benoit is a great host.

We have just returned from this holiday and I never leave reviews but several things on this trip have made me feel compelled to do so, and this was one of them. The apartment/home is wonderfully decorated and the collection of WW1 items was a surprise for history lovers. The welcome and help from Benoit was much appreciated, we really... More

First time on Tripadvisor I've seen everyone give 5 out of 5 and an excellent rating. Only way to find out why is to stay there. Highly recommended for many reasons besides those above. I hope to return as many times as possible.

We stayed one night in the Churchill apartment and wished it was longer. Our host Benoit was excellent and took the time to tell us the history of the apartment and also gave us some useful local information. The apartment is immaculate and full of some very interesting items from the war. It is in a great location literally across... More

This is a fine place to stay when visiting Ypres...it is well-located, well-run, full of interesting artefacts and the perfect point from which to explore the very sobering and moving history of the area. Literally just across the road from the Menin Gate, it is a about a seven minute walk into the Grote Markt. We had the apartment comprising... More

We were in Ypres to witness the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate, and to revisit the Flanders Fields Museum. For convenience, Menin Gate House is unbeatable - the Menin Gate memorial is just across the street. But more than that, it is a superb place to stay whatever the reason for a visit to the area. Great care... More

Six of us stayed in Iepers on Saturday 9th November - a very appropriate weekend to be at the Menin Gate. We were so lucky to have found and been able to book this wonderful accommodation within a few footsteps of the Gate. Over the years I have stayed in many lovely self catering properties but this place is probably... More
