I'm cheating here as I've not been to the Ariane to stay for a couple of years or so but I've used the restaurant since then.
I cannot speak highly of this hotel and it is the one and only place I will stay at when I'm in Ypres.
The last time I went here was for my honeymoon (the wife and I are avid WW1 buffs) and, seeing we stayed at the Ariane when I proposed to my wife at the Menin Gate then it was the obvious choice.
Sadly on our way to the hotel we were caught up in the mother of all traffic jams (1 mile in 2 hours!) and the time for the table we'd booked in the Ariane was getting closer. We managed to get a phone call to them and they kept their staff on duty in the restaurant until we arrived....3 hours late.
We had a superb room, chocolates and wine were laid on and we were treated like royalty; the staff couldn't do enough for us and were so friendly.
We still get a Christmas card each year which is lovely.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Ariane to anyone wishing to stay in Ypres. It's not the cheapest place to stay or eat but, by God, it's worth every penny!More
