Stayed here for two nights on a trip to Ypres, and the location cannot be bettered, it is literally right opposite the gate, and to see it lit up in the evening from the lounge window was fabulous. We had the very top floor apartment, which was very clean and quite well equipped....however, if you have any problems with stairs... More

Normally we stay in B and B's on weekends away but I couldn't find any availability in Ypres for our chosen weekend so, impressed by the reviews on Trip advisor , five of us set off for Menin Gate House. Well, the reviews certainly didn't lie! The area, town, house and quite frankly , the host were all beautiful! Being... More

Menin Gate house is a privately apartments/hotel close to the Menin Gate in Ypres. Each night the fallen from WW I are remembered through a memorable ceremony with buglars and laying of a wreath. The gate's walls includes names of 35.000 soldiers known to have died in Flanders, but never to get their own grave - either not found or... More

The physical facilities were fantastic. Nicely renovated rooms and bathrooms with great beds and linen and a large fully fitted out kitchen. Of much more importance was the feeling and experience. Our host, Benoit, explained the history of the town and the house and the previous owner who had lived in the house for nearly 80 years. Benoit is chairman... More

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
