Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions, including September of this year and it has always been an excellent choice. The rooms are spacious, the hotel has a lot of character and is only a few minutes outside the town of Ypres. The restaurant always provides a wonderful breakfast and also evening meals.

The cost of the rooms has always been extremely competitive and the staff always welcoming. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel, even though it is outside of the town.

Room Tip: I can't remember the number of the room but as you walk through the double doors downstairs it i...

This is a family-run hotel, situated on the notorious and historic Menin Road of WW1 fame. It has a distinctive Flanders flavour. Son Dries cooks delicious meals - try the scampi starter with steak to follow. He is ably backed by mother and father, Anne-Marie and Franz, and a pleasant staff.
We have been using this hotel for 18 years. In that time, it has blossomed. Now the Kasteelhof even has a "battlefield experience", complete with flooded mine crater and genuine bunkers, in its garden. The rooms are tastefully decorated, the food good and the service excellent. Parking is ample andf free.
This hotel is in the very heart of the Hooge battlefield, where savage fighting took place in World War One.The Germans first used flame-throwers here. It is close to the Hooge crater museum and also Hill 62, where visitors can visit the last remaining British trenches in the Salient.
Ieper is just a five-minute drive away. Don't miss the moving Last Post act of remembrance, which takes place every night at 8 o'clock at the Menin Gate.
The Kasteeloff is just the place to experience some old-fashioned Flemish hospitality.
All it needs now are some tea and coffee-making facilities in the bedrooms.

Situated about 4k from the centre of Ieper, this hotel is quiet, clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are lovely - the usual breads, croissants, cheese, ham, etc but with the addition of delicious iced pastries too. I stayed in the huge Room 1, snuggled in the comfy bed and watched BBC1 or BBC2 at night after a tasty meal in the restaurant. We only ate here twice during our 4 night stay as the menu selection is limited but the steak was beautifully cooked. Although it's outside the centre, parking in the city is easy to find and very cheap - free in the evenings which I couldn't believe. There are trenches and craters in the hotel grounds, over the road is the Hooge Cater CWG cemetery and next door is the Hooge Crater museum and coffee shop. I would definitely stay here again.

This is very convenient for visiting all the local war cemeteries and Ypres is only a 5 minute drive away.
The hotel as WW1 trenches in its ground and are free to guests.
The hotel does evening meals but you must book this at breakfast, I can't comment on the food as we had our evening meal in Ypres.
The hotel is basic but as everything you need for a comfortable stay, its very homely and the bar is open most of the day for acohol or just a tea.
We shall be stopping at this hotel next year as we always make a trip over to Ypres in September.
The breakfast as plenty of variety and the bread rolls are to die for although the cups are very small, but this seems the norm for mainland europe.
Fancy a meal out? Then do try "Poppy" restaurant just down from the Menin Gate in Ypres, read the reviews!!!

We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting the WW1 memorial sites and have to recommend the hotel for its position. You are actually staying where the front line had been and have the opportunity to visit a mine crater and trench in the hotel grounds. It is actually better than the Hill 62 trenches which costs E10 each. We stayed in the triple room, as my teenage son joined us, and it was adequate but basic. We had the steak and frites for dinner after all the good reviews on here and have to say it was very tasty and the breakfast is very nice. On the second night we ate in town before watching the Menin Gate Ceremony and were able to sit outside when we got back and enjoy a beer. Overall it was an enjoyable stay.

We stayed here for two nights as a convenient place from which to visit the battlefields and Leper itself. This is a wonderful family run hotel. It has only eleven rooms; our room was very large, on the corner on the ground floor with windows overlooking the front and side gardens. The furnishings were period pieces, the ceiling high, the bathroom light, spacious and well fitted. The bed was very comfortable. Everything was immaculate and spotlessly clean. The restaurant's evening menu is limited but the food was superb and the service excellent. Breakfast was extensive, offering a much greater variety of hot and cold foods than we had expected from a hotel this size. Although the hotel is off the main road, which makes it convenient for visiting Leper, the Menin Gate, the cemeteries etc, it is far enough from the road to be very quiet at night. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here as part of our self guided tour through the WW1 memorial sites. This place was convenient to a number of important sites in the area, including Hill 60 and Hill 62, and of course Ieper and the Menin Gate. All of these places were within a few minutes drive.
The hotel actually has a battlefield memorial on site, with some trenches, a bunker and a large crater.
