3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed at Hotel Pax as it was closer to where we needed to be visiting Langmark, Vladso, Ypres plus we'd been before. Easy to find, plenty of parking and a lovely welcome. Superb breakfast, friendly staff. Rooms were fine, but watch out for traffic noise to the front of the hotel, but the rooms are well stocked with tea, coffee so why I hear you ask have I not given the Hotel a five rating? After a long hot day guiding and driving on Sunday I was looking forward to sitting out on the sun terrace with a beer and a coffee. I forgot the hotel bar does not open on a Sunday; so up the road to the town square. They missed out on a few (quite a few) euros! But otherwise very happy.

Comfortable 3 star hotel with main square and eateries in 5 minutes walk, pretty little town with a nice historical city walk. Room was very comfortable, breakfast was excellent, wifi worked very well for no extra charge.

I have been using this hotel for at least 15 years as a base for my school's students to study the battlefields of World War One and it has never disappointed, either under the previous owner, the wonderful Bruno, or his charming daughter Pauline. Nothing is too much trouble: the welcome is very warm, the food is excellent (this year we told Pauline one of our students had a birthday and she produced a delicious birthday cake for her), the owners are very patient and understanding with the children, and the rooms scrupulously clean and very comfortable. We used to change hotels part way through our trip to be closer to the French battlefields but never found anything to compare with the quality of the Pax, so we now put up with the extra travelling time so that we can remain there for all 5 nights of our visit. Cannot recommend the Pax highly enough - I retire from teaching this year, but will definitely return with my wife when we visit the battlefields together in the future.

Stayed here with a group of 19 people on a battlefield tour visiting Waterloo and Ypres. Check out and check in was very easy and you can tell they are used to dealing with large groups. The rooms were clean and modern. They were all at a good standard. The continental breakfast was also to a good standard. We had booked pack lunches what were self made at breakfast time. The hotel has a bar what closes as 11 and there are a few bars within a short walking distance. Overall a good Hotel and would stay again if in Belgium.

My son and I stayed here for one night and were not disappointed. We had no reservation but the young manager made us so welcome. The hotel will lose its Best Western Flag soon and I suspect will go on to be better still. Breakfast was excellent and accommodation clean albeit a bit dated. Well worth a visit.

This hotel is a real gem, ideally located in the town, it is spotless inside, the rooms are clean and very comfortable, dinning and the bar area great. The owner managed to feed breakfast to our coachload twice single handed, we lacked for nothing there, very impressed with her and the hotel. At the moment it does not do evening meals yet.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a School visit programme to the WW1 battlefields. The staff were very helpful towards both the young people and teachers in our group, and handled the large numbers well. My room was comfortable and quiet. The hotel is also very convenient for looking around this small town, with an attractive old square and buildings, and nearby shops.

Very welcoming, clean and well managed. The staff were friendly and very help nothing seemed too much trouble. It was very busy due to a large influx of Canadian visitors over for the centenary of the Battle for Vimy Ridge. We only stayed for 2 nights but wish it had been longer. Highly recommended - planning on returning with family.

Great hotel to stay in, Room very good and very clean.Continental breakfast tasty with a large variety of food to choose from. The staff are brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. A great place to tour WW1 battlefields. The Belgium people are very friendly and the area is full of the history of World War 1.

We have just returned from visiting the WW1 Battlefields and stayed here for four nights. It is a lovely family run business- despite being part of a chain, the young couple were friendly and always happy to help and service was very efficient. The meals were varied and home made and the rooms were lovely and well kept. I would stay here again and recommend it to family and friends.
