Very conveniently located just off of the main tourist area and two minutes walk from the Menin Gate. Very spacious and clean hotel. The rooms were extremely good value. The view wasn't the best but then we only stayed for one night and only slept in the room. Bathroom was clean but the totally plastic moulded bath and shower cubicle was a little strange, but completely functional. Outside of the hotel there is a superb cake / pastry / bread shop that is a delight just to look at. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Would recommend to others visiting Ypres. Parking is a little odd as you need to park on the road and if you're lucky some spaces are free .

We got a superb deal on this hotel and enjoyed a couple of nights in this beautiful medieval city, perfectly restored after the ravages of WW1. The hotel offers excellent quality as would be expected from Novotel. The downside is the price of breakfast - at €20 per person we declined. Instead, we went to a bakery called Panos, where fresh coffee and a generously sized pastry cost about €4.

Stayed for one night, with wife and two small children. Room was very comfrtable and all set up for children, who also got welcome pack. Easy parking near hotel and a choice of free or pay parking. Good value and overall very good experience.

Travellers on the Western Front trail will find this hotel a step up from the generally pokier rooms you would find further south in , say , Arras and Amiens . The aesthetic of course is Novotel generic , and it is a bit of a hike to the back rooms , but the positives are : the place is scrupulously clean ; the counter staff pleasant and helpful ; there is a good selection for breakfast , and the hotel is centrally located and easy to access . You don't have to second guess anything here , which is the beauty of it . Leave your thinking for negotiating The Salient .

We stayed here for 1 night in 2 superior rooms before going to an amusement park in the area. Connecting is only available for standard rooms (which they told me quickly in reply to my email). I haven't stayed in Novotel for ages, but we got a good room rate and since it was only for 1 night and we didn't want to spend a fortune we just took this deal. I am not a big fan of Novotel. Nothing has really changed inside the rooms since ... well, early 90s which is really kind of shame. Reception and checkin was friendly, speedy, no problems whatsoever. It looked more updated downstairs than it did in the rooms. The kids got a goody bag, which they loved, it was a nice gesture. The color scheme in the hall ways and in the rooms is just SOOOO outdated. Boring, bland ... and it was pretty gross looking (stains, etc.). The walls have many signs of wear and tear too. Some work needs to be done. I understand it's not a 4 or 5* hotel but it could still look more modern, in a budget kind of way. The colors, the materials, it's just not! Amenities in the room s are good. Everything is there. They offer room service, laundry, etc. The basics is all fine. Beds are way too firm for my liking and the "woolen" (?) blankets on the extra bed looked at least 20 years old ...Rooms are clean though. Bathroom is pre-fab thingie but OK. Separate toilet which is nice. Breakfast was quite good, good value, nothing to complain about. It's very close to the main square so excellent location although it's not a big town. The major attraction here is the WWI cemetaries and that's indeed very impressing. The town looks quite beautiful for just a provincial town but lacks good (and better) dining options. Again, this place just needs an overhaul in the rooms, with fresh modern colors and finishes. It doesn't have to be a 5* finish but something needs to be done!

We have just returned from a 4 day stay at the Novotel Ypres. It was an excellent location for our investgation into family members who served and died in the 1st World War. The hotel is excellent. Hotel staff were very good indeed - especially on arrival and breakfast (at a reduced summer rate) was jolly good. We used a local restaurant - The Poppy - most evenings and it was very good also The hotel evening menu was disappointingly poor. The hotel was was just 1 minute from the centre of Ypres and 1 minute from the Memin Gate where the ceremony takes place each evening at 8.00pm. Rooms are really spacious and unlike most hotels on the continent it was equiped with a kettle but take your own supplies of tea. Close by free on street parking was great. We took a tour with Salient Tours. This was excellent and we highly recommed it. You can book at the stop opposite The Poppy Restautant and close to the Memin Gate.
