“A lovely B&B in a beautiful town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Michael and Veronique were just wonderful and settled us in to their B&B like honored guests. The town was very lovely, and it's not a far walk to a lot of the sights in town. I'd definitely stay here again if I have the chance to return to Ieper!

We arrived early, 2 wet motorcyclists having covered 260 miles that day yet we were warmly greeted by Veronique who from the moment she opened the door treated us superbly. As others have said, the accommodation is modern, very clean and is close to the centre of the Ipre. Space had already been made available for the 2 motorbikes in their garage, so we wheeled them straight in. Veronique showed us our rooms and advised us where to eat locally and gave us our keys to the door.

En-suite bathroom has shower (no bath) with towels. Bedding is comfortable and clean. Rooms have TV. Wifi is no extra cost.

The next morning (Sunday) our breakfast was cooked by Michael and Veronique and was perfect. We ordered a packed lunch to help us on our way which was provided for a few extra euros. Will definitely stay again if we are anywhere near Ipre..

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter but the ones at the front aren't noisy, just not as quiet. The 2 w...

The rooms are fairly simple but very clean and comfortable. We were in a room on the top floor at the back and managed to sleep until woken by the Church bells at 8am. Veronique and Michel are very pleasant hosts and you feel that nothing would be too much trouble for them. The breakfast was excellent, with a large choice, including made to order eggs and bacon. The location could not be better as it is just inside the city ramparts through the Lille gate so easy to find and easy to get back onto the main road network. Additionally, there is lots of free parking in the streets surrounding the B&B and it is a pleasant 10 minute walk through either the town or along the ramparts to the Menin Gate.

This was our first trip abroad to view the battlefields - even though we are in our late plenties, Veronique and Michael were extremely helpful in what to see and do in case we had missed out on our planning, helping with maps and guides etc. A very clean b&b with comfortable beds and the breakfast set the two of us up for the day even with my large appetite

Perfectly situated a few hundred metres from the town centre. Hortensia is clean, bright and very comfortable. Rooms are well appointed. Breakast is varied, plentiful and very good indeed. Veronique and Michael are superb hosts. Kind and helpful with great personalities. i liked them and I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 days there.

I will definitely return.

We were greeted by Veronique who from the moment she opened the door treated us superbly. The accommodation is modern and very clean and is close to the centre of the city. Veronique arranged our tour of Flanders Fields and made sure our needs were met. The cooked breakfast by Michael and Veronique was perfect. Would definitely stay again.
