De Iep + 't Wikhof
Reviewed May 13, 2013

I stayed here with my school on a GCSE battlefields visit between the 8th and 10th May. We were greeted friendly by the manager upon our arrival after a long and tiring day travelling by bus from the school to the hostel, with stops in the middle. He informed us that we had to make our own beds, normal procedure I guess. Then he told us that the beds in 't Wikhof were already made - result! So we went there once the groups were sorted and made our little home for the 2 nights we stayed.

Soon after we had made ourselves at home, dinner was served. It was a vegetable soup to start, which was, to be fair, a little watery, but edible. For main we had chicken chausseur with chips - the chips were really nice, but there wasn't enough chicken! And for dessert we had a cornetto each. Overall, the meal was bearable, yet I wouldn't recommend the food to someone else. We then spent some time around the premises, which are private and lovely, to be greeted by a cat - this I was not impressed with, because I have a small phobia of cats. But that soon shoed and we were cooking on gas! They were happy with us, and didn't interfere in the evenings. The games room was good, and had facilities for table tennis and table football alongside a bar. The fact that there was wi-fi in the hostel made it easy to talk to friends and family back in blighty, so it was good in that respect.We soon all departed for our dormitories, and hit the sack for the night.

I woke up at 6am the next morning to be greeted by a rather nice shower, which was cold at the start, but was okay, apart from the lack of pressure being transmitted through it. Our window had broken when we opened it to hang the towels out, and the door had broken as well. We informed the manager and he was happy to fix it no problems. Compliments to him for that. Breakfast was served at 7am, and it was cornflakes, alongside tea and coffee, and enough bread and preserves for everyone. We had ample servings for our lunch that day, and after we finished breakfast, we hopped onto the coach and headed off to France for the day.

When we got back, everything was left as we had it when we left, but the door and window still weren't fixed. That didn't cause a problem because we were issued with a key to lock the door as and when we needed to. After this brief inspection, we went to the large dining room, with ample space for everyone, That night we had tomato soup to start, which, again was watery, and for the main course we had pork, and some vegetables. I didn't enjoy the vegetables due to the sheer lack of flavor and the utter dreadful texture - it was almost as though it had just been mashed together and it tasted like pea puree. The ash potato was good, and there was enough to go around the table. I enjoyed the pork due to the lovely flavor and the sauce it had been cooked in, and we were warned beforehand that it was made with mushrooms - which was commendable. For dessert we had in date chocolate mousse, which enjoyed. Water was available throughout the evening meal on both evenings.

After we had had dinner, we left the dining room and relaxed for a bit. We enjoyed the social area and the use of wifi. We then all went to be at around 12midnight and woke up at 6.30am the next morning.

We packed up all of our things and we left the hostel with a grateful manager thanking us for our custom. He was available to make sure we had the best time we could.

If I could make some criticisms, it would be that the menu of food wasn't available for view, so we didn't know what we would be eating. I didn't find this acceptable at all. I also didn't like the size of the rooms, as I found that the room we had, which was designed for four, felt cramped with three in it.

Room Tip: 't Wilkhof is more spacious than De Iep.
