“Warm and welcoming b&b”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

This was our first trip abroad to view the battlefields - even though we are in our late plenties, Veronique and Michael were extremely helpful in what to see and do in case we had missed out on our planning, helping with maps and guides etc. A very clean b&b with comfortable beds and the breakfast set the two of us up for the day even with my large appetite

Perfectly situated a few hundred metres from the town centre. Hortensia is clean, bright and very comfortable. Rooms are well appointed. Breakast is varied, plentiful and very good indeed. Veronique and Michael are superb hosts. Kind and helpful with great personalities. i liked them and I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 days there.

I will definitely return.

We were greeted by Veronique who from the moment she opened the door treated us superbly. The accommodation is modern and very clean and is close to the centre of the city. Veronique arranged our tour of Flanders Fields and made sure our needs were met. The cooked breakfast by Michael and Veronique was perfect. Would definitely stay again.

If you want a good, clean, bright and welcoming b&b in Ypres (Ieper)... you need look no further than the Hortensia. The young hosts, Veronique and Michael, couldn't have been more friendly and helpful - even to the extent of providing maps and discount tickets for our travels.

The b&b is perfectly situated - 100 metres or so from the ancient city wall, and around eight minutes walk from the main square and its restaurants, and the evocative Menin Gate. Nearby parking is easy (and free), as well.

The six spacious en-suite guest rooms are bright and spotlessly clean - and the hosts serve a decent breakfast. If you want a cold drink of any sort, you just help yourself from the communal fridge downstairs and tell Veronique or Michael later. That simple element of trust sums this b&b up completely. To be thoroughly recommended.

We were welcomed by our hosts Michael and Veronique to their delightful B&B very near to the centre of Ypres. Very comfortable spacious rooms, awesome breakfast and fabulous location. We would recommend the Horetensia to anybody looking to stay in Ypres.

This B&B could scarcely be bettered. The accomodation is clean, spacious and modern. The hosts go out of their to make you welcome and are very willing to give advice and help to make a stay in Ypres memorable. The breakfast was excellent and one choose choose either the continental or more English option or a mixture of both. I would heartily recommend Hortensia.
