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

Just returned from a four night stay at B&B Hortensia. It is a lovely house which the front is used as guest rooms and the family live in the rear extension. We were welcomed by the owner Veronique who made us feel at home immediately. She was extremely helpful in giving us advice on good local restaurants and on the... More

Our departure was very early and the owner made us a take out breakfast! Really clean and a lovely atmosphere. We hope to return to... More

Stayed at the Hortenia with some biking friends while remembering and paying our respects during the WW1 centenery. It's ideally placed in the centre of Ypres to visit all the sites of interest. The Menin Gate is only a 10 minute walk through the cobbled streets. Veronique looked after all our needs and was a great host. The rooms were... More
