“Relaxing, home from home comfort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We have just returned from a 3 day break in Ypres. Roger and Muriel were very friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was great, the mattresses were very comfortable, free parking and just a 5 minute walk into town.
Roger treated us to a local tour and was full of knowledge.
All in all, a fantastic retreat, we will be returning!

Room Tip: If you want your own toilet, choose the downstairs room.

An excellent B&B in the centre of a lovely town. Being able to park free outside the front door - a bonus. Our room (No. 3) was spacious, modern and spotlessly clean with a comfortable bed. This room benefits from a spacious balcony with table and chairs overlooking the small but perfectly formed garden; unfortunately too wet for us to benefit but looking forward to returning in better weather. Roger and Muriel are delightful, providing a warm welcome and a relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast offered a good selection and was a convivial affair around one table providing a great opportunity to chat with other guests. An honesty fridge in the dining room is kept stocked with soft drinks (1euro each) and fresh milk (free) so much better than milk 'capsules'. All in all a great spot, we will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Room 3 has a balcony and overlooks the garden.

Roger and Muriel are a very engaging couple, Ieper is a beautiful town and an excellent base for touring, the B&B is very clean and very conveniently located (free parking, and less than a 5-minute stroll into the centre), the breakfast is excellent, and yet….. well, I’d still like a little more when paying 90 Euros a night, for example:
- A kettle is good, but a drink’s too wet without a biscuit or two
- Liquid soap from a dispenser is okay for hand washing, but a small bar for the shower, please
- A credit card facility
- Sleep beyond 6.30 without requiring ear plugs (street life and house life prevents this in the downstairs room)
For anybody not suffering from mobility problems, an upstairs room overlooking the garden would seem to be the best option.

Clean, friendly and white, much like myself. The single room was fine for me. Don't miss the stunning mural on the rear garden wall. The Flanders Field Museum is but ten minutes walk away but don't miss St.George's Church and the lovely cathedral. The famous Tyne Cot Cemetery is easily reached on a 94 bus from the bus station, one an hour, for 3 euros. If the return journey is undertaken within two hours, that trip is free. Take a walk around the Ramparts to get away from the hot sun.

Just returned from our trip to Ypres. I cannot express how fantastic this B&B is Roger & Muriel are the best hosts that you could wish for. There was four of us and the rooms are spotlessly clean. The breakfast is like home from home, all guest sit together on a long dining table which is lovely and friendly. Breakfast is plentiful with a fantastic choice including cereal and full English. Roger took us out to visit the War Cemertries and bunkers etc for a very good price. We were not hurried an any way. Anyone who post negative reviews on this place need to have a check on themselves! This in our opinion is top class for a B & B the standards are extremely high and the service no 1 thank you to you both.

The B&B is only a short walk into Ypres centre - with free car parking. Both rooms booked were beautifully decorated, with large showers. We also had the room with terrace balcony at the rear of the property which is ideal to sit out and relax. Both Roger and Muriel were friendly and welcoming and both breakfasts offered, full English or Continental, were first rate. We could not fault anything with this B&B, location, facilities, rooms and breakfast were faultless. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to both family and friends.

We booked two rooms here - both lovely decorated rooms, air conditioning, with ensuite shower - we also had the bonus of booking the room with the terrace balcony. Roger and Muriel are very friendly and welcoming - with car parking available and only a short walk into the centre of Ypres. Could not fault anything with either the accommodation or breakfasts offered. Both continental and full English were first rate. All of us from our party would definitely stay here again and would recommend the establishment to family and friends.
