“Probably the nicest hotel we've stayed in, certainly in Europe”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We loved everything about this hotel. The decor and design was very stylish in the common areas and our room (Glory), with extremely comfortable beds, a large wall-mounted TV, a Nespresso machine, terrific furnishings and a few books, and an excellent bathroom with large shower and bath - and all spotlessly clean. Our room was facing the cobbled road but this wasn't a problem for us and it was very quiet at night. The breakfasts were really special with cooked choices adding to the fresh selection - huge for any hotel, let alone a fairly small one (and sparkling wine!). The free mini-bar in the room and honesty bars were extremely welcome - a delightful change from the penny pinching attitude of some other hotels. The location is perfect with plenty of free parking within a few dozen yards (at least in mid July) and opposite an attractive church and only a few minutes pleasant walk from the centre, the ramparts and the Menin Gate. The WiFi is free, easy and fast. The service is truly superb and Carrine is an excellent hotelier - attention to detail is evident everywhere. This is probably the best all-round hotel we've stayed in, and certainly so in Europe. If only more hotels and owners were like this!

Just return from Ypres and Main street Hotel. Both were amazing! After a traumatic day the hotel was just what we needed. The attention to detail was wonderful. We stayed in the ' Top' room' and it was lovely, we had a Japanese bath and luxurious towels and gowns with a huge bed! The breakfast was something again! We will definitely be back!

I simply have to give this hotel top marks - we are totally blown away by this hotel. Full marks for the attention to detail - far beyond what we could have wished for - we knew it would be good by the reviews - everything was the best quality & spotless - the breakfast was an experience in its self - can't wait to return.

You can be sure of a very personal and friendly greeting from the owner Carine who is justly proud of her hotel. We stayed in the "Science" room - very creatively furnished but still v comfortable with a fantastic shower. Breakfast was wonderful. The hotel is easy walking from the Menin gate and the city centre but still very quiet.

We stayed here when cycling in the area and what a great find. Very welcoming host, lovely room and luxury bathroom, complete with whirlpool bath, and attention to detail excellent. The breakfast was top class, so much choice from fresh fruits, juices, homemade breads and jams, local cheeses, eggs every way possible and hand,add waffles! THis small hotel is at the top of the tree, we look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Any themed room, our room had efficient air con as road noise bad with window open.

Called in to see if there was a vacancy, we were very lucky that there was. This is the best hotel we have stayed in during our Europe tour. Would recommend it to anyone. Planning on a return trip soon. Very good value for money.
