Great base for visiting a number of WW1 sites and Ypres itself.
I travelled to Ypres for a three day two-night stopover for my 92 year-old father to see the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate, and to see a couple of the local WW1 sites as well. This was not an extensive tour of the area.
The hotel is ideally situated for such visits. Some might say it is too far out of town, but for fit people with time, it is not. On the other hand, a taxi is not an expensive ride either.
The hotel construction is fairly simple and some would say the walls are a bit thin, but this was not a problem to me, or my father. Our twin rooms were spacious and as one would expect. The bathroom was ok and, as all showers I have experienced in hotels, spray finds its way out somehow! I can't mark them down for this as it is "their" problem, not mine, whoever "they" are. Breakfast was a good mix of Brit and continental. Good bread to toast. I liked the coffee. Real scambled eggs better than some high price UK (international) chains produce, so very happy there. Took evening meals in town but only to extend the experience for my father. Staff fine, friendly and helpful, World Cup notwithstanding!!
Because of the hotel's location, it is possible to find school trips staying over. One such did occur for one night of my stay, but this did not appear to interfere with arrangements. Just something to take account of. less
