“More than we ever imagined.”
Reviewed June 23, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We booked this for the price and location. We got way more than that. If you're not too sure whether to book this place, just book it. It's huge, it's literally around the corner from the main square and the owners are just lovely. They'll go out of their way to make sure everything is OK. We only wished we were there longer so we could spend a day just chilling out in the house. I've recommended this to friends and family and will definitely stay here if I return to Ypres.

“Clean, comfortable and close to the action.”
Reviewed April 16, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The house was wonderful. It was clean, well decorated and of a high quality.
We were met on arrival, very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Especially like the "first round" on the owners!
Less than 5 minutes walk from the Menin Gate and the town. But a quiet street.

“Grey geezers on WW1trail”
Reviewed April 13, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have stayed in Ypres a number of occasions but this was the first time we stayed in self catering accommodation. The house has been modernised very tastefully and to a high level. On entering the house the impression is one of space and light. It was very restful and we four guys in our 60's really enjoyed the facilities on offer. We enjoyed the spacious layout and will return here rather than staying at hotels. The location is absolutely brilliant and Johan, the owner, is very welcoming. He has compiled a comprehensive book of information that details how to use all the electrical equipment and the location of shops and facilities.

“Fabulous home from home in a convenient and central location.”
Reviewed January 6, 2016 for a stay in December 2014

This was our second stay and just as memorable as the first. The house is extremely spacious and very well presented, a real home from home. The location is excellent, just a short walk to the square where the Flanders Fields Museum is located along with a good choice of shops and restaurants. Also a short walk to the Menin Gate to witness the last post, a very humbling experience. We were there for New Year and there was a Christmas market with skating rink in the square which was an added treat. It is also handy for visiting the many local war cemeteries plus convenient for trips to Brugges and surrounding areas. The local people are most welcoming and friendly and it is definitely a place to visit. Looking forward to visit number 3!

“Very clean, spacious, homely house, in very good location.”
Reviewed December 14, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Within 4 minutes walk to the market square and 6 to the Menin Gate. There are bars and shops within 2 minutes walk. Great host Johan, showed us all the good facilities which are all clearly documented in the welcome document. We were even left complementary beers in the fridge. Thank you Johan, we are coming back if you allow it.

“Centrally located - fine town house”
Reviewed October 10, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Lovely house in excellent condition and within very close walking distance of Ypres town centre ( 3 minutes walk to Menin Gate). Linen good quality. Clean. WiFi. T.V. Well stocked kitchen. Not always parking nearby but plenty of free parking within 5 minute walk of house in very safe areas - we didn't feel there was a problem leaving our vehicles out of sight of the house. A good choice - certainly recommend this to our friends. Deposit returned within 24 hours. Johan, the owner , met us on arrival and departure - nice chap - straight forward to deal with. 2 lovely bottles of the local brew left on arrival - nice touch - thank you.
