“Excellent. Thank you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We stayed here with a couple of friends on the 3rd and 4th August while we went to visit my Great GrandFathers grave who died in WW1. It is ideally located in the heart of Ieper (Ypres) but just far enough from the noise of the centre (100 yards away). The rooms are comfortable and the hospitality is excellent, Vincent, the owner, is very helpful and a great cook for breakfast. I can only say good things about this place and we will be staying there again as we try and visit my hero, Pte. 24489 Thomas Kellett, 7th Bat. Kings Own Royal Lancaster Regt., as often as we can.
Thanks Vincent, see you soon.
Darren and Jane Kellett

This Hotel is in a great location where you can park a vehicle in the surrounding streets easily and for little cost. Rooms very conformable. Hosts excellent. Ypres well worth visiting especially for Menin Gate ceremony and Commonwealth War graves.

Me and my family stayed over in the hotel for one night to see the famous Menin Gate and it's nightly 8:00 o'clock service. That was brilliant but also was the Ambrosia Hotel. Great service, very nice, clean rooms, extremely friendly and helpful staff that made Ypres one of the best places we stayed at on our European holiday. It was truley 5 stars.

Stayed for 2 nights, very clean, very friendly and helpful staff, family run hotel. Breakfast cooked to order, good selection for breakfast. We had a room on first floor, very spacious, bathroom clean, small but well equipped. One of our party had room on top floor (twin room) which was not as spacious and bathroom was a little awkward. But apart from that would recommend to anyone visiting Ypres.

Room Tip: Preferably room on first floor as there is no lift facilites and top floor rooms can be trouble-some...

We stopped here for one night and found it to be in a fantastic position just off the main square. The staff were very helpful and the lady making the breakfasts was a pleasure. The price was very reasonable. When I return to Ypres I would go back to this hotel

Lovely, family-run hotel only 3 minutes from the main square. Contrary to some reviews our family room was spacious and was also airy and bright with 3 large windows. The bathroom was small but clean and well equipped. Breakfast was excellent with eggs and bacon cooked to order by the proprietor Vincent who was also really helpful with recommendations for restaurants. A perfect base for exploring Ypres and the battlefields.
