Excellent location in this wonderful town, ideally placed for many sites, Menin Gate, Cloth Hall, St Georges Memorial Church and Cathedral within a short walk. Ok the place is a bit rickety when you go through to the rooms but to be honest it added to its charm. I was fortunate to get the room at the top and front... More

Excellent location on the square and underground cure parking available. Free wifi throughout. Great food available and friendly and personable owner and staff. Rooms in need of renovation and rubberised mattress protectors not pleasant. Alright for boys night out but if with wife or girlfriend, eat here but stay elsewhere.

Called here on spec early in the year for two nights. Wonderfully old fashioned in the bar and restaurant. Great view of the square from the bedroom window on the second night but not the first night we were at the very top and its no joke with no lift, however a room became vacant on the first floor which...

My wife and I have stayed at Old Tom on a number of occasions and always found this family run hotel and restaurant to be very pleasant. We last stayed here about six or seven years ago and booked for two nights out of nostalgia. We stayed in room 12 which is quite roomy and overlooks the market square. The... More

Late review from July. I stayed for one night with the prime motivation being a visit to the Menin Gate etc. The hotel is right on the characterful main square (remarkably rebuilt after the WW1 carnage) with public parking on the square out front, which is payable during daylight hours. Basically, the rooms are up the back stairs of the... More

I have not really much experience of small family-run inns and restaurants in northern Europe, so don't know what to compare it with, but firstly i was grateful to get a room in Ipier on the day the Tour de France came through the town. It is ideally situated on the old square within walking distance of the railway station... More

Having read the reviews I was apprehensive but I was pleasantly surprised. The room is basic but perfectly clean - a bit of a hike up to the third floor but the view over the square is worth it - especially when a band plays outside the Cloth Hall and the music wafts in through your open window! The food... More

Having read the reviews about Old Tom I wonder what people expect for the money!!! yes the rooms are basic, but does that matter? they are clean and comfortable and are really only used for sleeping. We have stayed there on numerous occasions and have yet to be disappointed. Looking forward to going back again this November

Did not stay in hotel but would highly recommend the food and drink as superb. we were in a party and time was short but the restaurant timed it so we could attend the last post. I was on a visit to the first world war tunnels

Just came back for a two night stay in the old tom hotel. Stayed in room 14, second floor room overlooking the town square. Three singles were in the room with a nice new bathroom. The room is nice, but a bit basic, but this adds to its charms. Christine the owner is fantastic and really welcomes you to the... More
