A great little find of a B&B. Very close to the the town centre, at most a 10 minute walk. The breakfast was great and Nelson the crazy cat says hello to everyone in the morning. The 6pm check in time is a little late if you want to get something to eat before the 8pm ceremony at the Menin gate. The room we had was good but could do with a comfy chair and a couple of shelves. I would suspect that most visitors will be British/English speaking WW1 tourists so it would have been nice to have had some English speaking TV channels. We will be going back the next time we visit as it's a great location and Roger & Muriel make you very welcome
