Hotel entrance and location: situated in an industrial estate just outside leper (Ypers) and as you drive up to it you wonder what it will be like but these fears are quickly allayed as the entrance is modern and landscaped to hide the surrounding buildings. It is surrounded by factories but are hidden from view and at the weekend very quiet. Car park isn't tarmaced so watch how you go when you leave.
Staff: found them to be helpful, polite and accommodating. The receptionist sorted out our rooms quickly then booked our taxi into Menim Gate. Bar staff were quick and polite and ensured we had salty snacks to help with our drinking, as if we needed help! Following day the staff at breakfast were the same standard we had already experienced, I.e. Excellent
Room: excellent! Spacious, clean, comfortable with all the additional bits a good hotel provides. Coffee making facilities, tv showing English channels, and all the stuff you require in the shower. Only complaint would be the lighting as it was a bit dim, but a minor dislike.
Restaurant: only ate breakfast which that was plentiful and delicious. If numbers are any indication then the restaurant was packed for evening meal but I dined in Ypers so cannot make a comment
Conclusion: excellent hotel which is off the beaten track but provides all that you require if you are visiting the WW1 battle sites. Great staff, great rooms, great hotel less
