A Novotel up to standard.A great location with amenities expected of a Novotel however the fitness room is tucked away & small.Friendly staff & a good breakfast .A short walk to Menin Gate & a selection of restaurants & bars.
The location of the Novotel is excellent. 2 minutes walk to the square and 4 minutes to the Menin Gate. Car parking is available at €15 per day. This is my second stay, last time was 7 years ago. Not much has changed, perhaps the TV’s have been updated. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The rooms are basic, older Novotel style but quite functional. We had the couch converted into a bed for our daughter and it was comfortable. The main bed was quite firm and the pillow wasn’t great. Because of the age of this hotel there are no charging points near the bed. The WIFI was free and fast. Easily streaming video. The breakfast buffet has a large range of hot and cold selections but the coffee cups were all stained, yuck! Overall the Novotel is a good choice. I’d stay again.
This hotel is in a great position in the town centre of Ypres, handy for the Menin Gate & Cloth Hall. I visited in a organised party, and the hotel was packed with visitors from the Antipodes commemorating New Zealand losses in WW1. Me and my bro were in room 207, very spacious with a double and a single bed. There was a safe, flat screen tv and separate toilet and bathroom. WiFi was fairly easy to connect too. This being Belgium the bar had a beer selection that you could only dream about in many countries. So why not 5* you ask? Well the breakfast is best described as chaotic. You sign yourself in, then if your lucky you can get a seat reasonably quickly. The food is okay, there are plenty of bean to cup coffee machines and by trial and error you can find one that’s fully functional. Nonetheless though this is a good option in the heart of Ypres.
The online checkin worked very well. However the rooms were not cleaned on the first day - a turn down service was offered, together with clean towels, but not quite what was expected. The fast checkout was a disaster - breakfasts not taken were charged for resulting in an email to be sent requesting a refund
Worth stopping here close to the city centre and the Menen gate. Comfortable rooms and good wifi access if you need it. Food is of a good quality too. Reasonably priced for the region. Breakfast is available from an early time as well. I can recommend this hotel.
The hotel is of a good standard in an excellent location. The only downside is that overnight before checkout the bill is emailed to the customer. The email states that nothing more is needed and that the amount will automatically be deducted from your credit card. In my bill I was being overcharged by €80 for breakfast which was not included in my package. Not sure if this a genuine error or an attempt to con tourists with automatic billing
I really like this hotel and can recommend it to anyone whom wishes to visit Ypres itself or the Ypres Salient & Western Front Battlefields. Rooms are very comfortable, breakfast is a superb buffet and the location cannot be beaten, only a 200yds from the Menin Gate (literally around the corner)
Spent one night here in a superior family room. Room was spacious and clean. Staff friendly. Free on road parking (with permit from hotel). Buffer breakfast fantastic. Location superb right in the heart of Ypres a stones throw from everything. Highly recommend.
This is an adequate but unexciting hotel, with a fit out that is starting to show its age. It is like a tardis - my room seemed to be hundreds of metres from the front desk - and looked out onto a very uninspiring gravel bed and concrete wall. The mattress was bad and the lighting is inadequate; however the breakfast was great and the staff were very friendly. The location is centre Ieper is fantastic, but for 130 euros a night it is not great value.
It's with a heavy heart we gave this hotel a poor rating. This is our second stay and although the hotel itself is still as good as ever, rooms large with fridge & tea/coffee facilities nice bath & shower breakfast superb and good selection of beers in the bar, we did have a major disappointment. We were booked to stay for 4 nights from the 9th to 13th October along with a large coach party on a Beer and Battlefield tour. One week before we were due to go the tour company phoned us to say we could only stay for 3 nights and would have to relocate somewhere else on our final night due to the hotel overbooking. Whilst we can understand there was a large New Zealand contingent staying to commemorate the Battle of Passchendaele we did feel a bit aggrieved as our booking was made a year ago. We emailed the hotel to complain about the disappointment but they didn't even have the decency to reply! Instead they forwarded it to the tour company who were not at fault. Very poor management and customer services indeed! We should mention Karin in the bar. She served tirelessly on her own and always had a smile even though the bar was quite busy. We would still recommend this hotel but don't be surprised if you arrive and find you don't have a room.
