“A gem of a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

My Son and I only had one night in Ypres and booked a twin bed room at the Ambrosia. It turned out to be a great choice.

It was easy to find. The location was superb being so near to the Cloth Hall square, although far enough away not to be disturbed by any noise.

It had been refurbished to a very high standard throughout, and everything was clean and very very comfortable, and the rates were very reasonable.

There was a great choice of breakfast including eggs and bacon and tea, and advice and tips of where to go was freely given by the host Vincent.

The Ambrosia used to be known as the "Shell Hole", but that was some time ago, A lot of money has been spent on the place since then, and investment in the Ambrosia continues, in order to keep the hotel looking this good.

I would have no problems recommending this hotel. I will book in here again when I next come over, and I wish Vincent and his Wife all the best in this venture.

Just back home this week from staying In the Ambrosia.Had a great time in Ypres Hotel is close to all places of interest. Bright, spotless and very very comfortable beds and very clean. Breakfast great choice the hot breakfast (a fry )was very tasty. Vincent was very helpful and took time to tell you places of interest and how to get to them he knows his history. Always friendly and smiling nothing was too much trouble and of course Pebbles everyday greeted everyone with a lovely smile and cheerful and bubbly. Great hotel and great people going back next year for sure to this hotel.

Room Tip: room 16 was great right on the front 3 beautiful large windows overlooking the front,

Great location for Menin Gate, Grote Markt, In Flanders Field Museum. Lovely, homely hotel. Do try it. The owners are very helpful, breakfast is lovely. I would definitely return for further visits to World War One memorial sites.

Just a short walk from the main square, the Ambrosia Hotel is comfortable, clean and efficiently run. The staff were polite and helpful. Rooms are not huge, but ample, and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was included and served a good range of options, from cereals to cold meats and yoghurts, with bacon and eggs cooked to order.

Very friendly, owners helpful and could provide information on all requests. We had two good rooms but a little small. Overall a very good breakfast - cold meats, fruit, some cereal, bacon and eggs. Very clean throughout the building. An upmarket B and B rather than a hotel. Excellent location.

Stayed February 2014

Just returned from a visit to Ypres with friends. We stayed for 3 nights at the Ambrosia and found it very good value for money. The location was ideal-5mins from the main square! Rooms are clean and functional. Breakfast is freshly cooked with alternative options available. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the battlefields.

A friend and I Spent two nights here in January 2014 and The Ambrosia Hotel was perfect for what we needed; staff very friendly and knowledgable about the local area and sights to see.
Room was beautifully clean.
Breakfast was cooked fresh each morning, but a continental option was also available.
Lovely, quiet hotel, would definitely stay here again and also recommend to others.
