This is the second time I've stayed here when visiting Ypres and each time it has been great, very clean and very comfortable. In fact I had the best nights sleep I've had for a long time. This would always be my first choice when staying in the area.

This is an excellent B and B easy walking distance to centre of Ypres and Menin Gate. Wonderful breakfast, clean comfortable quiet rooms. Fast wifi. We had a medical emergency whilst staying and the owners were wonderful in the support they provided. Can't praise them enough.

Really friendly welcome (in English), nicely presented. Our room was really spacious with ensuite. Spotless! The room was immaculate in every way. Even a kettle and tea and coffee available from the dining room. The B&B is close to the Lille gate. Parking wasn't a problem over the weekend we stayed. Would highly recommend.

Good breakfast,more comfortable and much improved decor. Veronique is an excellent hostess-friendly, English speaking and knowledgeable about area-well worth a visit for a quiet stay near Menin Gate, which is a short walk along the Ramparts away ( or through the streets, which takes longer. Parking can be problematical, but Veronique will help out with permits.

Veronique runs a really comfortable, welcoming and well equipped B and B. An easy walk to the Menin Gate along the ramparts, or into the town square where there are excellent places to eat and drink. Breakfasts, as mentioned by others are great, varied and include her home made bread and jams. Highly recommended.

We have stayed at Hortensia a few times now and are always warmly welcomed by Veronique. The en suite rooms are clean, warm and well thought out with cable TV, hairdryer, kettle and lashings of hot water. It is situated by the Lille gate in Ypres so parking is convenient and free. Breakfast is very good with plenty of choice... More

The location is not in the centre, but it is easy to walk to the centre - 10 mins. Hotel is on the main road from Lille Gate to Centre, but our room was also on the main road and the double glazing was more than adequate, we didn't hear a thing. Big, simply furnished room and excellent breakfast with... More

I have stayed at the Hortensia several times with the previous owner Andre,and this is the first time with the new owners. It clearly is a business that continues to develop impressively. The style of the, rooms is bold and interesting,clean and fresh. Breakfast now includes hot food,which is great Very pleasant experience altogether.

Located just on the edge of the old town near the Rijsel (Lille) gate, free parking is possible just the other side of the gate. However we found it easy to get a 3 hour parking disc space for both loading and unloading, right opposite the building. Veronique and her husband are friendly and helpful, and provided us with useful... More
