“Charming!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We stayed for two nights in November and would love to return and stay at the Charming Poppy again. The accommodation was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and had everything we could possibly need for our stay. The apartment is well located with parking outside and it is an easy walk to restaurants etc. Highly recommend!

We stayed at Charming Poppy for a week last month. We could not fault a thing. Roger met us at the train station, even though its only a few minutes walk away, and took us back to the spotlessly clean apartment where we met Annie. Lovely people. There was a packet of delicious chocolates on the table as well as a very tasty cake. Belgium beer in the fridge! The modern kitchen was very well equipped. A very quiet and secure apartment...very roomy with comfy furniture and good heating. Walked to everything. Local buses to nearby towns. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend to other couples.

Our stay at the Charming Poppy began when Roger drove to the edge of town to guide us to the apartment. Once there we were greeted by Annie who showed us through. We were delighted with the accommodation. It was easy to see the apartment and all it's furnishings had been put together with comfort in mind. I was especially charmed when I reached for a towel after my shower and found not a towel but a terry robe !! The apartment was full of necessities. Laundry soap, shampoo, soap, spices etc. Amazing.
We explored the area, hiked, drove and were chauffeured by Salient Tours. The apartment was close to everything, we walked to the Menin Gate many times within minutes. The grocery and other shops were close but our street very quiet. Easy to get around from here once we got our bearings.
Totally satisfied with the Charming Poppy.

Room Tip: Very few accommodations out there for 2 couples, we enjoyed the 2 queen sized beds. Most apartments...

We booked " The charming Poppy", following the reccommendation of friends , via the internet web site. This was carried out very quickly with no hassle, we also recieved an email a couple of days before our travel confirming the booking and wishing us a good journey. We were met on arrival by the friendly owners, Annie & Roger who explained the layout / equipment of the apartment, together with details of the included off street parking (secure garage)
The apartment is very well equiped, LCD TV /cable tv/ wireless internet access/ DVD /CD player. There is even cake chocholate and beer as a welcome gift.
The accomodation is of a very high standard and the location is very central to the town with its museum, attractions and bars.
When we return to Ieper, we will be staying at The Charming Poppy.

My husband and I stayed at "The Charming Poppy" for two weeks. This apartment has ALL of the conveniences anyone could want. It is completely furnished with everything one would find in their own home. The furniture was extremely comfortable as was the bed. We slept so wonderfully and felt so much at home. Roger and Annie were the best! We were welcomed with chocolate and beer. They were so friendly and accomodating.

Everything is within walking distance from shops to restaurants to a nice stroll on the ramparts. This was such a quiet neighborhood and very pleasant neighbors. Everyone was so nice. I only wish we could have stayed much longer. I was becoming attached to the apartment. Very cozy, yet very elegant.

I can't wait until we come back...............I know where we will stay! This is the best place.
I love to cook and entertain and "The Charming Poppy" allowed me to do this for our friends in Belgium.

I would defintely recommend this to anyone. I DON'T know how anyone could give this place a bad name.

Our stay at the charming poppy couldn’t have been better, roger and Anne couldn’t have been more helpful, the apartment is fully equipt with everything you could want, the location is 10 min walk from the grotte mrkt, menin gate 15 min walk, all around the poppy there are bars shops, it is ideally situated for either the battlefields or the coast,
I read the 1st review and thought omg but honest everything we have said is true

I am staying at Charming Poppy at the moment and it is in excellent condition and spotlessly clean. Roger and Annie were very helpful when we arrived and told us if we had and questions, to give them a phone call. The apartment is finished to a high standard with all mod con's. The street is quiet and has parking. I have the use of a secure covered garage a few streets away included in the price.
