Recent guest reviews

On booking found the new operators to be super friendly & helpful ! Our room while having a fantastic view over the Square etc had problems ! The blind collapsed, the WC screamed & no TV reception !! But no problem ! We were told to go & explore Ypres and on our return we had been upgraded with no dramas, beautiful large room, comfy, quite and the breakfast was sweet ! We enjoyed two great nights and the Manager spent over an hour booking our boat transfer for us & the car to England ! Well over the limits of responsibility and a great customer service ethic !! Also taught me how to pronounce Ieper/Ypres like a local !! Can Highly Recommend the Hotel O !

the hotel is within easy reach of all amenities. Hotel is clean, the beds are very comfy, continental breakfast is good. The new owners/staff are very friendly and helpful - would definitely go again and recommend it.

Found the hotel very clean nice size room comfy bed continental breakfast was nice staff very helpful and polite think the new owners are making changes for the better .all the best the stanneys from kent

I have stayed her a few times and the welcome from the staff is always first rate. The hotel is well situated and good value for money, breakfast is included and the rooms are adequate. However housekeeping and maintenance standards seem to be slipping, with mattresses stacked in the corridors, fuse cabinets missing doors, piles of bedding and cleaning equipment left adjacent to lifts etc. Hopefully this is not a sign of falling standards.

Great location but basic accommodation, clean and adequate but a very basic hotel with no frills, fine if, like us, you were out and about and just wanted a room to sleep and wash in. Note; Do not park in the main square overnight on day before market or you will be towed away, like us and another guest!

I booked for myself and my daughter and her partner to stay here for two nights while on the battlefield sites. After the first night my daughter asked me if I had read the reviews and I said I had back in the Summer when booking, a good job I hadn't read them since! We were greeted at reception and given our keys and a key to the car park, just the other side of the Menin Gate and a cost of 10 euro a day but secure and locked up. The rooms were dark but I understand they are being updated, the battlefield colours were not what you want when doing the tours, something calming would be better to come back too. The bathroom was fine the water was hot but the pressure was poor for a bath but fine for a shower. The bed was comfortable and none of us had any problems with bugs. My coffee machine either didn't work or I couldn't work it, my daughters was fine and I used the kettle provided. The towels were fine I didn't put the TV on but my daughter did and she had a good reception. Bedside tables and headboards would have improved things a lot as would a hair dryer. Breakfast was fine two of us are vegetarian and found it to be a good continental breakfast, fresh fruit yoghurts and good breads. It's in the best position just off the main square that does of course mean that it can be noisy. We found it to be excellent value for money.

Beds are incredibly small, shower has no pressure at all, hot water is not always available, sopa is not replaced, bathroom is dirty, noisy like hell.... even the breakfast is so poor, receptionists are not always available. I would never come back, under any circumstance. The only happy moment was the check out one.

The room had a nasty smell; thankfully my mate uses Lynx deodorant so that soon got rid of it. Although I'm not bothered about television, it had no signal. If you offer it, make sure it works. The shower had no curtain so water went everywhere..........their problem when cleaning. the room ( number 212.........so make sure you don't get that one), was small and dark and very hot. The window overlooked an open roof which was covered in rubbish, and the blind was hanging off. Breakfast was plentiful but obviously the cheapest. Thankfully we only stayed one night.

Having known this Hotel for over four years was surprised to read some very negative issues concerning cleanliness and service. I know this hotel has changed ownership now and the new owners are completely renovating the rooms etc. Going is the drab Military style and fresh paint work is brightening up the whole place. Any concerns on cleanliness can be forgotten, the room was cleaned and serviced every day on our three day stay. The "canteen style" breakfast room area has been renovated to bright and clean area offering a fantastic continental style breakfast. Still topped up until the close at 10.00am so no problem in having all the offerings. The staff are very polite and helpfull. The room was clean with a wet room shower all very clean.{room 123] all the items were in place, fridge, kettle, hair dryer, coffee maker and making facilities. Parking was not provided but I was able to park outside the hotel for two of the three days we stayed. The other day was just around the corner. Considering there was a mini marathon going on when were there with hundreds of people and some roads closed off this did not cause a problem at all. We took two friend with us and the they were pleased with their room as well, however, this was still in transition from the old green drab so seemed a bit dark, but still clean and all as expected. Will continue to stay at this Hotel when we make our annual homage to my wifes' Grandfathers' grave at Popperinge near Ypres. Ideal location for the bars,eating places and of course the Menin Gate. The Flanders Museum is opposite a must see place. Couldn't fault.

I'll start with the positives, the location is terrific right in the town centre. The breakfast I found to be good with plenty of options. Unfortunately the rest is all negative. The view from my window was laughable. The TV did not work. The bed was plonked in the middle of the room, no headboard. The mattress and pillow were not comfortable. And upon waking up the next day I find blood streaks of bed bugs I have crushed in the night on the sheets. Further inspection shows a substantial amount of bed bugs, some of which were hard to find amid the filthy floors. Ypres is such a lovely town, don't tarnish your stay here. Even if you are on a budget, just pay a bit more for somewhere more befitting of a hotel.
