I visited Ypres with my partner and some family to find a relative's name on the nearby Menin Gate. Peter is an exceptionally warm, friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable hotelier who seems to genuinely enjoy running this business. We didn't ask a lot, but it seemed as though nothing would be too much trouble for him to help with. The rooms were comfortable and if we are back in the area, we wouldn't even bother to look for anywhere else to stay. We opted for the continental breakfast, but were still asked if we'd like any bacon and eggs cooked for us. We noticed (but didn't hear) some hens in the garden area, so you know the eggs are laid fresh and free-range if that is something that matters to you. We had three of the five rooms and were the only people staying at the hotel that night (something we still can't understand due to the enjoyment of our stay!). Myself and girlfriend stayed in room 103, which is - only slightly - the most expensive in the building. My brother stayed in the room opposite, whilst my mother stayed in one of the rooms upstairs (not sure on the other room numbers). They were both happy with their rooms as well. All were of a very generous size. Some reviewers mention that the toilets on some rooms don't have doors. In our room at least it is a sort of cubicle in the corner which is an odd arrangement at first I'll admit, but just not what you are used to. Posed absolutely no problems, and being enclosed, it isn't as though you're in full view whilst sitting on the loo or anything like that. There is no dedicated car park, but plenty of off-road parking available on Hoge Wieltjesgracht. The market square is just an easy 5min walk away, with the Menin Gate just under 10mins walk away. I'd definitely recommend visiting it in the evening when the local fire brigade perform The Last Post - highly poignant. During our visit, the market square was holding a bustling winter market which was an added bonus. Nice mulled wine along with some to-die-for waffles! All in all a most pleasant stay.
