“Been back 10 times - says it all”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

I have taken many school trips away, and have been to ypres many times. I have been to the Poppies and the sister hotel the "Salient" many times and go back every year with years 7-13. The Hotel building give you a real feel of Belgium and are buildings that were built post WW1, they are full of atmosphere and character. The owners are really friendly and helpful and the staff there are really helpful. The free internet, pool and games are loved by the students, as are teh high quality meals served in the local restaraunts. The food is excellent and I have never had one complaint from any student. The rooms are not 4 star rooms but it is not a 4 star hotel, I have stayed in many hotel rooms that are far worse that are 2-3 stars in the UK. The linen is clean and the water is always hot and the town square is only 5 mins walk away. The staff are really looked after with an excellent value refreshment fridge. With coach parking right outside The poppies, th central location and facilities make the perfect venue. i have been going for 10 years and go back regularly.

I recently stayed at the hotel on a trip with my school and found it very enjoyable. During the overnight stop i stayed in only one room so i can judje only on that. All linen and towels were clean and fresh. The room was dark but had fabulous views over menin gate. I found the room cold and slept with a coat and dressing gown on but that was probabally because i slept next to the window. The food was terrible so bring your own seriously their continental breakfast was toast with jam, cheese or ham or/and cornflakes. Overall i think the hotel was around average. Low temperatures so bring layers including socks!
