Having taken students there (as a history teacher) I have to say that this is what we expected for the money. The rooms are not the best, but the food was good and the location overlooking the Menin Gate more than makes up for it. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the students enjoyed the visit. Just don't... More

This lovely property is located across the street and ancient mote from the ancient city wall a half block from the famed Menin Gate Memorial. You must see the 8 p.m. nightly WW I memorial service that has been observed nightly sine 1928 except during WW II when the Germans occupied the area. Bus loads of people come to view... More

For a supposed 'school' hotel, it is not all that school friendly. To start with, the hotel looks unfinished with wallpaper falling off and a huge crack in the arch into the dining room. The rooms themselves weren't very safe or hygienic. In our room, the toilet handle had been snapped off and you had to push a lever in... More

As a battlefield tour operator specialising in good history for school groups, the three school hotels in Ieper and the new one in Albert are ideally located. Each has its own unique character with plenty of facilities for the group to relax in the evening. The key selling point is single occupancy, knowing the building is yours for the 3... More

After reading a previous negative review about the Menin Gate B&B, I felt compelled to write in with my very positive experience(s). As a history teacher, I have taken groups of students there for the past 6 years. In all that time, I have never found anything negative to say about the place. The staff are excellent- accommodating to all... More

I have taken many school trips away, and have been to ypres many times. I have been to the Poppies and the sister hotel the "Salient" many times and go back every year with years 7-13. The Hotel building give you a real feel of Belgium and are buildings that were built post WW1, they are full of atmosphere and... More
